Hi GMAT Club Members,

I will be taking GMAT within 3 weeks. My weakest area is reading comprehension. The main issue is it takes up too much time for me to read through passages and then answer questions. I went through a couple of free videos offered by GMAT Pill on RC and found them quite useful. Their strategy allows you not to read the entire passage before starting on questions - this certainly would save time. For those who used GMAT Pill for RC before: could you please comment on how their strategy is compared to that of Manhattan RC? I heard they are good with boosting your GMAT verbal score within a short period of time. I'm currently thinking whether I should enroll in GMAT Pill's verbal course for the final crunch. I would like to hear your feedback on that. I would also welcome any other reading strategies you recommend that can help with speed issues. Thanks for your help in advance.

As it looks like other users haven't commented, I'll write a few comments here. I can't compare our RC Pill with M's but it's like comparing apples and oranges. RC Pill communicates thought process through videos so that you can watch and absorb. In our opinion and from results we've seen from students, we believe this is the most effective way to learn and tweak strategy.

The M RC book is a book and it's a different learning strategy. I personally created RC Pill and invite you to check out the demo videos on the site and see if the learning approach works for you. We've heard great things about this particular section from students as they've seen their RC accuracy increase a lot. Why? Because I show you my reading strategy. You can take a look at the testimonials on our site and elsewhere you can find them.

Best of Luck.
