Hello Spoilt,

DS problems are two fold:

One: Breaking down the problem to figure out "what is the problem really askign.
Two: Being competent enough with math concepts to solve what said problem is asking.

We have a strategy in the strategy thread (see the link in my sig), but this only helps to you about ~650 level problems. After that, the problems become more difficult where one option is not really "easier" than the other.

RC is a bit tricky as it tests your ability to extrapolate information based on a passage (to a small degree), and also tests your ability to maintain focus when reading a passage. We have a thread here that lists out some fiction books that have helped some with RC.

books-to-read-improve-verbal-score-and-enjoy-a-good-read-76079.html

There are a couple different things you can try. Some of the prep companies teach you to take notes when reading passages. Others teach you to try "active reading", where one actively processes information as the passage is read.

Getting RC figured out in less than a week is tough. The best recommendation I have is to really work on the strategy (approach) - whichever one you are using.

You can also take a look at this overview: gmat-club-s-reading-comprehension-strategy-guide-83101.html
