700 plus, my biggest problem in RC was concentration and I addressed that in my post. I really did not have any strategy for RC. Unfortunately none of the methods suggested by the prep books like skimming, reading the 1st and last paragraph etc worked for me.

I basically read the RC start to finish with full attention. If I saw any facts or names mentioned I would quickly jot down the line number and did not try to memorize them. The idea was if there was any specific questions I could go back to the line number and reread it. As I read each paragraph I would try to rephrase in my head the main point of the paragraph.

As far as timing, I think I tried to read each RC in 3-4 minutes. Since I read them quite thoroughly I was able to answer the questions in less than 1-2 mins.

You are right Gayathri.I also buy your point that there cann't be any sacrosanct strategy for RC. But all books try to impose their own strategy trading them as the best(as usual).
