Hi

I used to do Reading practice tests and get +25 or even +28

but i take more than the time (untimed practice)

regarding timed practice I always bombarded with time up !

my ibt score is 16 in reading (April 2nd)

I dont deserve 16 .. but foolish mistakes and bad time management were the causes i think

I was screwed in the exam bcoz of the timing

OMG

my 2nd ibt test is in few days (April 15) and it is vital for me to read fast or find a successful strategy for the reading section

plzzzzzzzzz Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp

Reading speed is always improved only with practice. I remember, during my GMAT study, initially I used to read & answer a RC passage in 12 minutes, but gradually with practice & "FOCUS", the time was reduced to 7-8 minutes. Focus is the key here. Often, most of the people just lose focus on the passage and start thinking of some other point or matter. That deviation should be avoided!!

April 15 is too near now, all I can say is Best of luck!!!

Try to read a long passage within the stipulated time, even if you don't understand what is being said in the passage. practice that way. im sure as you read more and more passages this way, your comprehension of what the passages are trying to say would improve. it takes time, but is definitely effective.

Also, you don't need to read the whole passage to answer most questions so keep that in mind.

All the Best!
