I need some help with the Reading Comprehension. What are some of the strategies I can use to do this fast ? Do you read the entire passage, and then answer the question or is there something else I need to do, to get a better score in this area ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated !!

Thanks,

-- Ganesh

How much prep have you already done? What materials are you using? The prep review guides like Princeton Review et al have strategies for every section of the test. I would definitely pick one up if you haven't already.

For RC passages, I read the question first, then skim the passage to see where the answer ought to be. I read that part of the passage carefully, then check the answer options. If the answer doesn't jump out at me, I look at the passage more closely. But I pretty much skim and don't read every word. Seems to work.

The general observation is that skimming the passage and reading is not effective. There is a sticky post in this forum which explains some very good strategies. Try a hand with that.

Please go thru the 'sticky' in Verbal forum. You'll find what you need there.
