I saw it. Ok This is my opinion.

PRO
This video has all you need, really, to ttackle RC passages on the Gmat. Well explained, with a logic consequence of the process that you could do throughtout the passage.
After months of study, I 'm arrived on the same things that the video says well.

CONS.

Maybe a bit the pronunciation (of course the speaker (her) is not native). But after several videos by Ron Purewal with his super super intricate language :D this is so easy to understand.

I have a more generic question about RC. Although I scored well on RCs in practice tests, on the actual test I observed a fatigue by the time I reached the verbal section due to which I could hardly focus on the RCs and some CRs as well.

Is there anything that you could suggest me ?

Hi there,
First of all thanks for watching the video. We hope it was helpful.
Secondly, I’m sure a lot of GMAT takers can relate to your issue. GMAT indeed is long test and it does get you tired. However, you can overcome this problem by building muscle. And how can you do that? Take a lot of mock tests. These practice tests get you in the habit of taking the full-length tests, helping you to increase your stamina. Another approach you can take is to take just full length verbal tests using Grockit.
The second thing you need to do is to internalize standard approach to solve different sections. For example, at e-gmat, we focus “Pre-think” approach for CR. Similarly, we have a very scientific “Meaning-based” approach for SC. In the video, you saw the “Key Reading strategies” to comprehend passages better.
Internalizing standard approaches helps you attempt questions in a systematic manner so that you don’t go back and forth in the question stem to get to the correct answer. This reduces mental friction and hence lessens fatigue.
Also when you internalize standard approaches for various sections, you know how to begin analyzing questions as the method comes very naturally to you and you can solve questions faster, even when you are fatigued. So try to develop standard approaches for various kinds of questions.
Hope this helps.
Thanks.

does having a solid base of sentence correction and critical reasoning helps in solving RC questions?

Hi Diptarka,
Let me begin by thanking you for watching our video.
The answer to your question is “Yes”. A solid based for Sentence Correction does help improve your comprehension ability. In fact we recommend doing SC before starting RC. Here’s why. RC passages often include long sentences. Knowledge of sentence structure helps you comprehend such long sentences and relate them to information that preceded the sentence.
Hope this helps.
Thanks.

I would have really enjoyed to watch this video however it seems to have been removed from youtube.. Is this for a particular reason or is it possible to still view it from another source maybe?
