Hi folks,

Today i completed RC in verbal review II. out of 104 questions, my error mix is as follows:

a) Supporting Idea - 13 errors - i got maximum wrong here.
b) Inference - 11 errors - this was the another problem area
c) Logical structure/Application/Evaluation/Main Idea - 3 errors each

Any idea why I am getting only the supporting idea and inference questions wrong...??

Initially few passages I was at at a 90% accuracy (maybe becos they were easy) but then I started to struggle.

This was my first attempt at RC....and the CAFFEINE para really psyched me out...

thx..

For verbal do og12 and og verbal 2 at least 2-3 times each. On the real exam you will certainly do well.
