Hi,

I am having issues with Reading Comprehension section, especially dealing with INFERENCE questions. I have read the main "tips" from this board and several classes I attended (Veritas, etx) but I am still struggling.

I was wondering if anyone has any techniques or winning strategies to help me master this particular area :)

Thanks in advance !

When I read the word "inference" in a GMAT question I usually associate it with some process. There will be multiple logical steps to get the answer. When I do an inference question, my solution is usually something like this: 1, 2 and 3 are options-> If 2 or 3 do not apply, option 1 must apply-> 2 does not apply-> answer option 1

Time:
I think you should focus on OG11 RC. No class, no source is more helpful than it. Spend enough time, even 3/4 time of the rest of the time you have for it. I bet you will get the feeling of this kind of question in RC.

Method:

Use the highligh pen to help you
Focus only on this question
Get the feeling

All the practice will be translated into the feeling!
