Quote:
I had almost 1 wrong per passage, infact it was exactly the case, exactly 1 wrong per passage throughout 23 passages.

Is this the accuracy on Veritas or OG?
I think RC in OG is not very representative! Most of them are pretty long passages and what bugs me with RC is the timing part of it.
I always get incredibly tensed if I get RC after the 30th minute and I get it wrong!
So my RC strategy will not work for you.
I always try to get the main idea questions. I read very attentively for the first 2 or 3 RCs but I do tend to skim if the RC appears in the post 30th minute on the GMAT.

Well that was the accuracy in VP. It has been a while since I last tried RC passages from OG. But, now I feel that rather than trying RC passages from OG, trying RC passages from question pack would be better.

The one with GMATPrep Questions?
I would suggest that you dont till you are done with the GMATPrep tests!
OG is a good place to go! But i think its better to do RC in the online clickable/scrollable format.
GMATPrep Question pack works like charm!

Passage:1
I got first 2 questions wrong in the 1st passage. Q2 i got wrong because i missed the word "least". so fine.

Q1: I didn't understand the 1st question. In the last para it is mentioned that producers originally thought would repel audiences and correct option B says "added footage made its portrayal of war less glorified and more ambiguous". Aren't these contradictory? i chose option D because i found this reasoning in B incorrect.
