RC - 99 The Definitive RC Guide


Reading Comprehension (RC) is perhaps one of the most difficult to improve areas on the GMAT. Unlike Sentence Correction or Critical Reasoning – sections in which there are several strategies that can appreciably improve your performance – there is no great strategy you can use for Reading Comprehension. For those who like to read and who have been exposed to different types of books, this section can be a breeze whereas for those who are not too ‗literally‘ inclined, this section can be a major problem area. Unfortunately, most students fall in the latter category.
So what should one do then?
The single best way to improve your performance in the RC section is by practicing as many passages as you can, especially from diverse subject areas. While there is a lot of practice content available for SC and CR, we felt there was no similar practice material available for RC. Even the passages in the OG are not enough, plus a lot of them have too many questions which makes them non–representative of the actual GMAT.
This is where RC 99 comes into the picture. This book has 99 passages across difficulty levels and subject areas and the number and types of questions are very accurate representation of the actual GMAT.
How to use this thread?
According to most students, RC is perhaps the most boring area of the GMAT. This is why it is not recommended that you do too many passages at a stretch since you can quickly lose interest and as a result get a lot of the answers wrong.You should ideally target 3 to 4 passages everyday taking roughly 9 minutes for each passage (both to read and to answer the questions). You can either start from the low difficulty level and gradually move up difficulty levels or you can do a mix of passages from across the three difficulty levels that we have put them into.
At this pace it will take you around 25 days to a month to finish this book and when you subsequently take a full length test you will see the difference this practice makes to your performance in the RC section.

This kind of resource is allowed only in the Verbal forum. RC forum is purely for RC questions. Hence, I am moving this to the verbal forum.
