Hi Kaplan Verbal team,
I'd seek your feedback on the following:
There has been some news moving around in the forums that GMAT is having trend shift towards short RC passages and probably doing away with the long passages gradually...

Could you please share your thoughts on this and let me know that whether do we need to practice ONLY short RC passages now on-wards?

Interesting!!!!
Can you provide some links to the discussions mentioning? I would like to have a few for reference.

One thought as it relates to your question - if the gmac provides shorter passages, they will provide harder questions in order to keep the integrity of the test.

So I think you will have a bit of a catch 22 since most of the shorter passages are easier ones.

My suggestion would be to practice the harder passages regardless of the length.
