In my most recent post on my "GMAT Roadtrip," I outlined a new RC passage strategy that involves spending more time reading the passage itself and much less time spent per question: re-reading parts of the passage, searching for keywords, or deciding between two best answers.

here is the link, gmat-roadtrip-79251.html#p615765 scroll to the post dated (Aug. 8)

If anyone has any questions/suggestions/or would like some follow-up on the strategy please post here!

Thank you!
Hopefully we can all start destroying RC passages and focus more on SC! haha :-D

Expert's post
I agree with the strategy of spending more time on the text and less on the questions. I would stop after reading every sentence to see how it fits in and ask myself why it is there and what the author intends to do with it (sometimes trying to predict what will happen next or what traps are being set).
