Hi anupam24gupta,

Welcome to gmatclub. When are you planning to take the test? RC is the hardest section to improve for most, so it takes time to improve it.

To maximize your score, you'll have to get as many SC questions as possible because most of verbal questions are SC. If you haven't watched Ron's videos, I'd highly recommend to do so:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/consolidated ... 01006.html

Using LSAT RC passages and strategies helped me a lot with GMAT RC. Check out these posts:

If you need general strategies, check out these threads:

Hope this helps!

Hi anupam24gupta,

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

Although I’m unsure of how you have been studying for the GMAT, I’m happy to provide some advice on how to improve your Reading Comprehension skills.

When learning Reading Comprehension, you need to develop a reading strategy that is both efficient and thorough. Reading too fast and not understanding what you have read are equally as harmful as reading too slow and using up too much time. When attacking Reading Comprehension passages, you must have one clear goal in mind: to understand the context of what you are reading. However, you must do so efficiently, so you need to avoid getting bogged down in the details of each paragraph and instead focus on understanding the main point of each paragraph. That being said, do not fall into the trap of thinking that you can just read the intro and the conclusion and thereby comprehend the main idea of a paragraph. As you read a paragraph, consider how the context of the paragraph relates to previous paragraphs, so you can continue developing your overall understanding of the passage. Furthermore, as you practice Reading Comprehension, focus on the exact types of questions with which you struggle: Find the Main Idea, Inference, Author’s Tone, etc. As with Critical Reasoning, analyze your incorrect Reading Comprehension answers to better determine why you tend to get a particular question type wrong, and then improve upon your weaknesses. Keep in mind that GMAT Reading Comprehension passages are not meant to be easy to read. So, to better prepare yourself to analyze such passages, read magazines with similar content and style, such as the Economist, Scientific American, and Smithsonian.

If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out.

Good luck!

RC is probably difficulty portion to attack specially when you are a non native speaker of English

Good Books for RC are:

1. Manhattan RC Guide
2. Aristotle RC Guide

Some tips from my side for a non native speaker:

1. Read Slowly so you understand what the passage is talking about
2. Try to note down some important Information (Generally Date, Background info has not been proved important)
3. Try to create the relationship between the facts and data.
4. Try to practice with the Official questions as maximum as possible.
