Hi All,

I have a query about the time we should take on each of the passages in the 1000 RC passage. There are 8-9 questions that follow the RC. Going by the rule that most people recommend we should take 2 mins/question (includes reading the passage too), which means roughly 15 mins. But in GMAT we generally have 3-5 questions following a passage (6-10) mins. This means we can spend more time to comprehend a passage in the 1000 RC doc.

Is doing well on the 1000 RC a good indicator of doing well on the GMAT given the time difference.

thanks
Abhi

From the instructors that I have interacted, they all suggest avoiding 1000 set. There are inconsistencies in answers and poor quality of material on them. If you are done with OG, the OG verbal book and other relevant GMAT books and need more practice, I would recommend using LSAT RC. This will take you to another level of difficulty and the GMAT RC will seem easier compared to LSAT. However, only do LSAT once you have run out of resources on GMAT and you are already doing way too well on them i.e 700+ level.

Thanks dimitri for the reply. do you know of a specific book for LSAT RC?

On a separate note, I think 1000 SC are quite good.. the answers mostly match and one can find discussions on various websites.
