I oddly enough studied so well that I got my Verbal score from the low 20's to 35, based on the last time I took the test.

My problem was RC because I was striving so hard on getting the answer right, I would re skim through the passages looking for the right answer. With continuous reading being the best way to increase your RC score, how much can you really read/study/work in a week? I feel EXTREMELY confident that I could increase my score to 39-40 if I could increase the amount of correct RC questions that are on the test.

Any suggestions??

WIth RC, it really is all about practice, but you have to do the right kind of practice. If you aren't super careful with timing, your RC problems can suck up all your time. You'll do great on RC questions, but your overall Verbal score will drop.

If you want to spend more time reading, you can practice with several sources (like the economist) to increase your speed and comprehension. Here is a good post about other reading sources: the-economist-reading-comprehension-challenge-151479.html#p1219005
