Hi all,

I have been facing problem in solving RC questions lately because of my poor reading skill. I'm not sure whether this issue has already been discussed. But can you please refer me some sites, where i can find some gmat like passages. For instance, I think http://www.sciencedaily.com/ has some good articles.

You can try Scientific American and Economist - these can cover science and economics/business.

Harvard Magazine (http://harvardmagazine.com/2012/03/into-india) can cover some social science examples.

Thanks Zeke.

But I'm worried more about topics related to astronomy, biology and other scientific areas. I really can't concentrate on these topics. Can you suggest anything regarding this?

Btw I've access to gmatpill verbal, though have not gone through the RC part. Which option do you recommend?
a) Go through the gmatpill RC first and then start reading articles.
b) Start browsing sites and finish SC and CR first, and then start gmatpill RC

born2win,
If you are going to read scientific journals which are dense in technical terms, you should really get started on GMATPill RC Pill first before you read the articles. This is going to help you tremendously in sifting through all of that reading.

Otherwise, you'll be reading a lot and a lot, getting information (which is what school taught you) but not really comprehending it.

Read a little bit, then get right into SC. I'm assuming here that RC is your weakest and so therefore should be your first focus.

Yes, RC is my weakest area. And thanks for your suggestion. I'll first get started on gmatpill RC and then go through scientific articles. I'll let you know if I face any further prob.
