Have you guys checked out the free videos on GMAT Pill site ? Thats a good place to look. Two RC passages are dissected and multiple type of questions addressed.

Also, check out "Thursday with Ron" videos on MGMAT site. Those are also good for RC strategy.

Thanks for the mention, crick20002002

gmat0510, I would suggest you check out the Reading Comprehension Pill I released this year. RC is a big pain in the butt for many ppl. An answer that seems right just somehow is never right. And I show you exactly how but communicating my thought process.

Nobody teaches reading comprehension strategy - in particular how you should read the passage. And what your brain should be thinking about. No amount of text reading, referring to the question and back at the passage and correct the subtle nuances that you need to be able to answer RC questions correctly on your own. You can do tons and tons of practice questions but never change your way of thinking. Your RC accuracy will never improve. It requires a change at the "Inception" level - yes, it's a reference to the hit movie last year. But don't take my word for it, check out the videos and see if they make sense for you. Two are free on this page below.
