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
- having a reading fast and userfriendly on your laptop or smartphone (maybe an android )

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.

Hope you like my effort to improve your RC skills.

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.

Hi all,

Great suggestions here. The important thing is to read something that challenges you. Also, try to vary the topics that you read. In terms of the drawbacks, the Economist subscription is pretty cheap when you think about how much content there is in the magazine but besides that I think there are at least 5 free articles per week readable on Android/IOs/Windows/OSX. Again, there are a many good options out there. I think that weekly/monthly/quarterly periodicals tend to be better than daily periodicals because the writing usually has more depth. Ultimately, go for what works for you.

Happy Studies,

HG

Can you suggest some quality fiction novels? I guess you have made a thread for that but I really can't find it..

Very interested in Sceincenews, yet not excited about forking over \$50 for a subscription. Any runaround for that?

Fast Company and The Verge. I like both of them.

But reading online is such a pain.

The intend meaning of this topic is to suggest good reading to improve RC skills.

However, you should be careful when you read something, because could be far from what we need indeed: focusing on GMAT RC: the style, the usage, the vocabulary and so forth.

My suggested reading copes with this purpose. Nothing more. It is conceived specifically to achive this goal.

regards
