Improving the time in RC passages [#permalink] New post 16 May 2012, 12:31
Hi guys,

need a more directed and case (mine) specific advise on RC pacing.
I have already gone through most of the RC advises and this what i am following:
1. Read the first question
2. Read the passage attentively (no skimming), paraphrase after each paragraph in my own understanding, map it in my mind.
2. No writing on scratch pad etc, no picking of pen (with an exceptional of any logical mapping, rarely)
3. Understand the whole passage and the message from it.
4. Attack rest of the questions.

I am able to answer the 700-level questions with 90% accuracy. Given GMATPrep1 and GMATPrep2 with 2 wrong RC questions in each. I am not a native speaker but a Indian software engineer so read enough English material.

Main Problem:
Most of the time, I am taking 8+ minutes to answer a 3Q RC (Short) passage) and 11+ minutes to answer a 4Q RC (Long passage).
How to improve the speed in answering the Q's?
I am going to give GMAT in 2 weeks time.
Any hope for me to improve my timing?
I am sure if i don't reduce this, i am going to struggle in the 4th RC passage in my real GMAt exam :-(

Thanks in advance for any help!
