Though is suggested to improve Rc to read excerpts from books or magazines such as The new Yorker or The Economist, these have drawbacks:

- are not free of charge and cheap to subscribe
- maybe are too tough and require skills that not all students have or are far from the concepts related to Gmat
- are not so fun to catch your will to read
- having a reading fast and userfriendly on your laptop or smartphone (maybe an android :-D )

Instead here I suggest you the best resources that you may find to fix the aformentioned points.

BEST RESOURCES

Thank you for sharing.

I am still more of a fiction/books guy. I feel that not home allow me to get into zone and focus for a long enough time.

The weakness of course is that books tend to be on paper but I found I could go longer and be less interrupted if I read a paper book instead of an article from an online publication.

This is purely me of course.

hi friends, I have a problem

when reading the Economist, I can understand the structure of the passage, but I can not understand the scientific process. in the tab" sicentific and technology" there are many scientifict passages all of which contain a description of scientific processeses

HOW TO UNDERSAND THE SCIENTIFIC PROCESSES ?

we can ignore or skim this scientific process but if a question ask us about this process. How do we do?

Hi all,

Great suggestions here. The important thing is to read something that challenges you. Also, try to vary the topics that you read. In terms of the drawbacks, the Economist subscription is pretty cheap when you think about how much content there is in the magazine but besides that I think there are at least 5 free articles per week readable on Android/IOs/Windows/OSX. Again, there are a many good options out there. I think that weekly/monthly/quarterly periodicals tend to be better than daily periodicals because the writing usually has more depth. Ultimately, go for what works for you.

Happy Studies,

HG

Very interested in Sceincenews, yet not excited about forking over $50 for a subscription. Any runaround for that?
