Just started on RC. Not doing very well at all in Verbal as a whole. Just getting around 70%age in SC and CR :cry: . Let me see how RC goes. Hope rhyme's strategy works for me :roll: .

Great thread and kudos to Rhyme.

Though I tried to implement his tips in couple of RCs and I still need to master the technique but yeah, it saves a lot of time especially on the ones where you have some background and are relatively interesting. However, if I apply this on the ones which are blues to me ... I get stuck.

Perhaps, I need to KEEP PRACTICNG !

2 Good!!!Awesome!!!!

It seems to be a gr8 way to tackle lengthy RCs(at least 3 paras) but what about shorter RCs(1 or 2 paras)
Could experts please explain how to tackle those RCs (1 or 2 paras).

Your tips are excellent but somehow are working great for easier Q's for me. The complex ones still remain an issue for me ... :cry: I would appreciate some tips on how to tackle complex questions.... :cry:
