Though is suggested to improve Rc to read excerpts from books or magazines such as The new Yorker or The Economist, these have drawbacks:

- are not free of charge and cheap to subscribe
- maybe are too tough and require skills that not all students have or are far from the concepts related to Gmat
- are not so fun to catch your will to read
- having a reading fast and userfriendly on your laptop or smartphone (maybe an android :-D )

Instead here I suggest you the best resources that you may find to fix the aformentioned points.

BEST RESOURCES





Each site has its feed RSS; you could put them in your Feed Reader. I use the best at the moment; it is another level and experience to read this good stuff.

App for both iOS and Android.

Feedly


Hope you like my effort to improve your RC skills. :)


Thank you a lot for the awesome reading suggestions. Just out of curiosity though, how could you know that bizedmagazine.com was endorsed by GMAC?

I'm giving this thread a gratuitous bump because I think it's absolutely wonderful, and I keep sending it to students as part of their pre-tutoring prep for GMAT verbal. As usual, you rock, Mr. carcass!

Thank you for sharing.

I am still more of a fiction/books guy. I feel that not home allow me to get into zone and focus for a long enough time.

The weakness of course is that books tend to be on paper but I found I could go longer and be less interrupted if I read a paper book instead of an article from an online publication.

This is purely me of course.


Posted from my mobile device.



I also prefer reading novels instead of articles, I am weak in RC ...

CAN YOU SUGGEST SOME GOOD NOVELS WHICH CAN BE USEFUL FOR GMAT FORMAT ?
