Verbal Strategy Help! - 1 month left [#permalink] New post 30 May 2008, 04:59
Hi all,

Wanted to get your input on my current situation. I have taken 4 MGMAT Tests and I have been struggling with RC. My hit rates for SC and CR are around 72%. However, my RC hit rate is BELOW 50% (around 45%). I am doing OK on the MAIN IDEA questions but struggling on the INFERENCE and SPECIFIC questions...

I just think I can't concentrate for the length of the passage and ZONE out during the thing. Would it be better if I thoroughly read the passage the first time?

Any ideas on what I should be doing to improve my approach/score?

Thanks,
Bob

Manhattan RC is not an accurate representation of GMAT RC.
