I have my GMAT in 20 days. Reading comprehension has always been my weak spot. Can GMAT experts guide me on how to prepare for Reading comprehension type questions. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Dear rookielearner,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

My friend, you have set yourself a tall order here. You want to improve in a very short time. You seem to be laboring under the misconception that someone can give you some kind of magical shortcut that will allow you to avoid all the hard work it will take to improve.

Think about it. Why does the GMAT ask RC? Because in B-school and even more in the business world, people have to read--often, they have to read information with which they are not familiar, and they need to be efficient at extracting what they need to make decisions. Not surprisingly, the best way to improve at GMAT RC is to read. If your question is how much can you improve in GMAT RC in 20 days, my question back to you is: how much new material can you read in 20 days? Over and above any GMAT preparations you are doing, you need to find several hours a day that you can devote purely to reading. You need to read, in well-written English, all the academic topics about which you know the least.

If you need to find time to read--well, I don't know how many hours a day you may devote to playing video games or watching TV or movies or exploring social media, but all that can be profoundly diminished for the next 20 days. The questions for you really are: what is your priority? This is your life. How much do you want to succeed on the GMAT? How important is it to you? Decide on your priorities and order your life accordingly.

You can start by reading these two blog articles:
How to Improve Your GMAT Verbal Score
GMAT Reading List

My friend, I truly wish you the very best of good fortune.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)
