Anyone out there have a good strategy for the science RC passages? I'm okay with the business and social science passages, but the science passages are absolutely brutal for me.

For me, writing short notes especially for science passages helps.

Yeah mgmat says to write notes but I found it takes too long (I'm a slow reader). On the paper test, I've been getting 7/8 correct on all non-science passages and then I just got a 1/8 on a science one (no notes obviously). But the science ones have always given me trouble, even in the OG problems, so I guess I just need to spend some extra time on these.

Hoping you other guys out there have some tips. Thanks!

i am the exact opposite guys, i LOVE science passages and hate the social/history/arts/literature ones.

its simply because i can visualise science passages, since they tend to be more mechanical. eg a cell releases some chemical (i picture chemicle X(in this case green in colour) oozing out of a cell

the reason I do not do well on social/history/literature passages is because I can't visualise. What tips do you guys have for me?
