Hello! Just a curiosity... :-D
While going through the RC part of Verbal, I keep asking myself whether the information I am "forced" to read for this exam is real. Is it taken from real studies? real articles?
If the information were real, at least I would be learning something :wink:

Does anyone know where do the RC passages come from?

RC passages are extracted from old articles, which are studies about some specific topics. I think that, yes, they are real, and they are good enough for us to learn something new :-D

I find interested in some topics like galaxy, science, but quite bored with some topics like history :-(

Great to know!
It is more motivating to read something we know is real rather than just GMAT-focused. I am enjoying both history and science passages and glad I will be learning something out of it regardless of what will be my GMAT score :)
