I've been studying the gmat for about 2-3 months because I am a bad standardized test taker. After taking my first practice test i got a 550 and i was like all right this is the average score. I did all right on the math but i did better in the verbal. So i thought i'd focus on the math for a week and do another practice a week and a half later. I figure that since i did better in the reading then i don't have to focus on that. However, that week was my first week of work and I didn't have time to study a lot of math. I could only focus on the weak points and when i took the test a week and a half later i got 9 more correct on the math section but i did worse on the reading. I was feeling tired on the reading section and i wasn't concentrating hard enough. I know I wasn't focusing so i believe that is the reason why i did worse on the reading. Is there a way to practice my stamina for my reading since it is the last section of the gmat. I believe that if i can have the stamina then i can get into the 600 which is my goal. I figure that if i read a boring article that I am not interested in everyday for a weak while practicing my math that I can do that. Is there something else that I can do?

Dear rsiddiqu,
I'm going to recommend this GMAT study schedule:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/3-month-gm ... beginners/
This schedule is designed to pace you through a rounded mix of material for overall preparation.
Here's a blog about a perspective on GMAT RC that you may not have considered.
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/curiosity- ... n-success/
You may find this blog helpful in general --- it's full of practice questions and strategies, in both math & verbal
http://magoosh.com/gmat/
Finally, here's a free RC practice question.

I hope this helps.
Mike
