Inconsistent performance in RC [#permalink] New post 01 Jul 2009, 22:48
Guys, I gave various practice tests in RC.
However my performance in RC seems to be too inconsistent.
It all depends on the passage.
If passage is good, I managed to score well otherwise score becomes too low if I could not comprehend the passage properly or if passage is too tough.

Any advice how to deal with various kind of passages?
Appreciate if you could share your method of attacking answers to the questions.

Do the passages which cause you problems share a common thread? Do certain subjects pose more problems than others? Is the length of the passage an issue?

Yes, I face major problem in history passage.
Length also plays factor in passage. For lengthy passage accuracy gets reduced.

is it the wording of the passage? I know History/theories kills me...they are uninteresting AND sometime hard to understand. If anyone have any ideas that would be cool
