Hey people!

I recently went through my full first practice test and now I know that RC is my weakest part of all three in verbal.

My question is now if it is efficient to work with the MGMAT RC book or (since I have "only" one month left - full time) to stick to other strategies e.g. the gmat club strategy and to focus on practicing and reading the economist etc. ?

What do u guys think?

hi,

i will say manhattan RC strategy is good...but it totally depends on you how much you practice using the same strategy.
i will say go through the strategy ...it will take hardly 2- 3 days. to finish them....then hit on the RCs using the same strategy...i will say practice around 10 RCs ..using same strategy given in manhattan....then jusdge youself whether that strategy is working for you or not(hope it willl work)....
but in rare case if it doesnt go for other strategies.....
but in the end..its all your effort...which pays....,if you are not a habitual reader..then it might take sometime to improve on RCs
Go through the articles...research papers...(approx 5 of them daily)

hope it helps
gud luck

If you're finding no improvement in RC, I'd suggest you take a look at some of these sample RC videos that show you how to read the passage.

Nobody ever teaches you how to "read" - they just tell you to read the words. To really grasp things on the GMAT and in real-life, you'll want to quickly identify how a passage is structured and use that to help you understand the intent of the author. Give the gmatpill RC videos a shot.

hi!

If you're looking for outside help I just took a 6 week private course with Sean from Tutor the People and my score went up drastically. He scored in the 99th percentile and was extremely attentive to the areas that I was really struggling in. Plus they donate 5% of the cost to Children of Promise - a non-profit that mentors and provides tutors to underprivileged children - which is pretty cool!
Hit me up if you have any questions!
