I would like to thank anyone of you in advance for your willingness to help me..i know that some of you might share the same problem i am experiencing throughout my journey on gmatclub and also on other forums;this might also be your opportunity for having your problem(s) solved through this post.firstly,i would like to make a formal introduction of myself before i unveil my problem(s);maybe that would make work easier..I am Chikumbutso Matthews Frazer,a malawian citizen(african) by birth,currently living in malawi and a non-native speaker of english!..my aspiration is to study economics and become an economist..on how i got introduced to gmatclub still remains a mystery to me that has been demystified by the wonderful works of the gmatters in this club..i am expected to write a university entrance examination by the end of this month of march; for admission into one of the universities in my country.during the first days of my membership to this family i saw myself stumble on gmat math but with the help of many good samaritans in this family i managed to solve the seemingly-impossible problem..but now my problem is in the gmat verbal section,a larger percentage of the problem being attributed to reading comprehension section than sentence correction section.i am really worse at reading a gmat comprehension and answering questions than doing a sentence correction.. I have tried reading many how-to-approach-reading-comprehension- questions on google but all to no avail..i find using veritasprep questionbank very much useful but with this my problem i dare not try to answer reading comprehension practice questions for fear of low performance that is recorded after every test you take on veritasprep..i have been a stalker on gmatclub for almost two weeks now,trying to find a key that opens a solution to my problem in the verbal section.i have even tried reading articles from the online newspapers like the economist,hoping that it would improve my understanding but am just frustrated as i feel stagnant in cracking down these long and not-easy to understand comprehension passages..whatever help you have with you on the tips,tactics and strategies that have made you comfortable with the verbal section,please i am in need of that help!

Hi there,

Yes, you are correct. Many aspiring GMAT takers do face problems in Reading Comprehension section. Well, I would suggest review this RC videp we posted during teh 1 million post event by GMAT Club and won in the contest:

practice-questions-for-how-to-solve-rc-efficiently-142310.html

We have an elaborate course on RC that breaks down things to such a simple extent that makes reading difficult passages and understanding them simple. Take a look at this video and do go through our free trial by logging into e-gmat.com and registering for free.

Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.

You should work on RC actively as well as passively.
Since you want to study Economics, reading the Economist is a must for you. If the physical copy is not available or not your thing, you can always access it online (on Mac or Android based devices). Of course, it will help you prepare for the RC section too.
Also, besides the question bank, have you checked out the Veritas RC book? It is extremely effective in helping you devise a strategy for the RC questions. Also, the run down of various question types gives you an instant comfort - you know what the question maker expects and where to go looking for the answer. It also has lots of practice RC passages.
Another thing, who is judging your scores during preparation? You say that ' i dare not try to answer reading comprehension practice questions for fear of low performance that is recorded after every test you take on veritasprep' - well, how does it matter that low performance gets recorded? It is recorded for you to understand where you need to work harder - not for others to judge you. Obviously, these performance scores are not seen by the schools to which you apply. The schools will only get to see your actual GMAT score. So go on and try to do every GMAT relevant RC passage you come across.
