RC - Efficiency? [#permalink] New post 09 Jul 2010, 12:27
Any suggestions on how to improve perform better in RC? I believe am exceeding the limit in responding to RC. However am able to get almost every question right but I believe am exceeding the time by about 25-35% which is not good.

So, anyone has any suggestions to make ? am looking forward to GMAT exam in Aug 2nd week.

First, check out the link whiplash2411 posted (kudos, by the way!). If you need help on your timing, then you need to time yourself. Set up your stopwatch or use the GMAT Timer:

gmat-timer-56014.html

You seem to already know your average time to complete an RC question. From now on, try to reduce that number a little bit each RC practice session that you do. Maybe try speeding things up by 10 seconds or so the first time. Also, the additional pressure of performing under timed conditions will help mentally.

I would also try some LSAT RC questions and time yourself on those. These are generally longer and more difficult than GMAT RC questions, so if you can handle these under timed conditions, then you will be in good shape!

One of the things that I would do is the manhattan GMAT way of attacking the passages. Except instead of writing it down, I try to make a mental note of it and then move on. Of course when you first begin, write it down, but as you improve and become more confident with the material, definitely make mental notes.
