I wrote this in response to another post, but I figured it might be useful for all. Let me know if something is not clear.

==========
I'll share my test-taking method for the verbal, and maybe it will be helpful. I only did the verbal portion in its entirety three times before taking the test, but in that time I was able to work out a method that took me from making 17 errors out of 41 questions on my first try to making only 4 errors on my third.

I'll write back later with more on the other two sections. I hope this is helpful for you!

I also do the same thing but on other side, self-uttering can hamper speed (remember the time - only 2mins for each question). But anyway thanks for the TIPS. Sometime it can do wonder.

I am facing problem with inference and assumption type question. Can you elucidate some points/patterns on these?

+1 to you sir.

What I figured though is that.

The passage should be read at a variable speed. In initially It should be read very carefully to get the main idea(structure of the passage).

I definitely think that your idea is good.

Will sit tight and prepare further.

Thanks for sharing tips. I try to read argument as careful as possible and rephrase to my language too. However, RC is really hard.
