RC inference questions [#permalink]

I have been having some serious trouble with my Verbal section while i am consistently scoring a 46 or 47 in Q i am stagnated at 28 in verbal on the GMAT prep tests. I have noticed that while i am able to smash the CR questions out of the park i am struggling with RC (making close 8 mistakes) and SC (around 7)
In RC my weakness lies in the Inference questions, while i understand what it aims to ask you the sheer volume of the text unlike a CR is too much for me to understand and answer and i end up making really silly mistakes (answering questions which mean the exact opposite, etc.) this is because i havent caught on to the contrast words or simply havent understood the passage (in really hard passages like the last one that you get) plus the time pressure right at the end of the test really does get you especially in the RC section.
Any pointers on this would be very much appreciated..
My plan is to get as many (if not all) RC questions correct in the first 3, focus hard on those ones and then on the last passage hope for the best as RC isnt really my forte...

I'm following Rhyme's strategy and it is working extremely well for me. I'm averaging >90% correct, ~2 mins average per question in OG13's medium difficulty RC questions...and I started my prep 2 days ago.
