So I've finished the OG Verbal and the MGMAT RC, and so far have completed much of the reading comp questions. My results seem to vary dramatically. I usually tend to do better when the discussions are more related to buisness, technology etc etc and less when it's talking about some kind of biology, chemical reaction type passages - which isn't surprising because I failed chem101 3 times back in college (sigh) due to all the definitions and terms, which is similar to what they have on the GMAT RC.

So my question is, how can I become familiar or better prepare myself for some of these more technical passages without being bogged down in trying to understand what a cell or a chromosome is? I tried the MGMAT techniques but they seem too time-consuming, especially on the longer passages that require more time (and more time to write down stuff). This is probably my biggest challenge yet so I was just wondering what anyone else have/want to share. Thanks in advanced.

Hey,

This would depend on the time you have left to take the exam. If you have about 6 months time, I would suggest you read magazines on biology and chemistry.
Since you have completed most of the basics and look confused about writing down the points during an RC, you could try writing 1 or 2 diagrams roughly for each para- This would be just for your visual memory. Ex: You can always write down the sequence of chain reaction and its result- if they were a part of an RC.


You could have both words and diagrams if you find that better. Deducing your own method of study is the solution! All the best!

Try reading the bio and chem topics in wiki for a start? Its more like learning a new language. You need to be comfortable with the key words even though people assure you that it is safe to ignore some words.


Regards,
V
