Timing issues on your GMAT, GRE, LSAT or SAT holding you back? Fear no more…

Timing issues sometimes become the culprit beyond multiplication tables or rate questions. Usually, the problem exists on the Reading Comprehension, which can make your entire verbal section suffer.

As a response to this, we’ve created MindFlow, a speed reading course which is specific to high stakes standardized tests, like the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, SAT and ACT. If you’re in NYC, you’re welcome to come to our MindFlow Class, but if not, here are some habits you’ll want to change in order to get into the best test-taking machine-mind-mode.

1. Stop reading to yourself. Yes. That which you learned in 3rd grade will no longer work if you want ultimate comprehension in the least amount of time. Silence those inner voices in your head.

2. Don’t get it? Keep reading. We lose 33.3% of our time just because we go back and read something that we realized we weren’t paying attention to or couldn’t pronounce. Let’s make this real: that is 20 minutes for every hour you lose by going back, and regressing. If you find you’re slowing down, and going back trying to pronounce something, see (1).

3. Don’t fixate. It’s the 80-20 rule. Chances are you won’t be tested on it. 80% of what you need is in a mere 20% of the passage. You don’t need to know that technical term or difficult word, you merely need to know how it functions in the passage as a whole, and where to find it if you need to look for it.

Any questions, ask here or contact me directly!

But it's not a quick answer. It's actually a LONG answer and it will take You time to learn how to do it! (all good things really do take time, right?)

You first want to start by getting rid of subvocalization, fixation and regression.

You do this by speeding up your reading. We DO have a course for this. In terms of RC, you need to realize the 80/20 rule is alive and well here: you're only going to be tested on 20 % of the information - - so you need to learn to read more uniformly and quickly. Get the basics from reading quickly. And learn where things are positioned in the essay. But this is only half the equation. You also need to understand the questions and answers. You especially need to learn how to distinguish bogus answer choices - - this winds up being the most challenging for many students. There are many exercises to help you become more sensitive to the wording of the answers that are good and bad (decoys).

Feel free to be in touch directly to discuss particulars!

Best,
