I liked MGMAT RC it was pretty comprehensive.

Additionally, for improving your RC skills and strategy, refer below article from Veritas & video from e-gmat:

For detailed information about RC, you can refer to

Correct use of Idiom is "Dated at". However "dated around" and "dated at around" are incorrect.

A. The domesticated camel, which some scholars date
-- Incorrect use of Idiom
B. The domesticated camel, which some scholars have thought to occur
-- "Camel, which some scholars thought to occur" is nonsensical. Camel is NOT a phoemomenon that "occurs".
C. Domesticating the camel, dated by some scholars at
-- Incorrect use of Idiom
D. The domestication of the camel, thought by some scholars to have occurred
-- This is correct (grammatically and also meaning wise). "The domestication...thought by scholars to have occure around..." is constructed well and conveys the meaning correctly.
E. The camel's domestication, dated by some scholars to have been
-- Incorrect use of Idiom. Also "dated by some scholars to have been around" does the verb error and has awkward construction.
