I am preparing RC from OG12 and got 24 wrongs out of total 139.
Please tell me how am I faring if I am aiming a score above 720? and also any action plan for improvement?
The fact is questions are framed from these similar looking yet different instances mentioned in the passage. To sum it, try and pen down very short notes while you are reading it and identify the main differences.
I have recently started preparing for RCs from RC 99..I have got a few queries like:-
1- Hows RC 99 a guide to prepare for GMAT and even CAT ?
2- I have completed around 10 Rcs and I did find the quality quite good. But I generally take around 12 mins on an average to complete the Rcs and my accuracy is something like 3/4 or 2/3 and rarely 1/3 in some cases. Whats your take on it and How would you suggest me to improve upon subsequently?
3- Any other source to practice good quality Rcs?
Thanks a tonne in advance...
Could you please let me know whether the Kaplan and Manhattan tests are adaptive or not? Does their score a good relflection of the actual gmat score?
Difficulty in RC can be at two levels: The passage itself might be tough to understand (for example, psychoanalytic passages) or the questions might be tough.

I would like to know whether the difficulty level of english section in the GMAT is same as that of OG or its difficult compared to it. Also, I get 4 ques correct out of 6 in 13-14 minutes in RC, but the time I am taking is too much. Could you please suggest some ways to increase accuracy as well as speed.
you can use online e-books and other stuff to study there are lot of thing available to study..
I agree with Ashish from @EducationAisle. Reading the RC Passage 2 times will really help. But the problem is that the reading speed of most students is quite poor. They barely are able to read the passage once. For that, I had suggested a Speed Reading technique in my earlier post. If students practice that and get in a habit of reading, then they can really do well in RC.
I followed my own RC strategy, take bits and pieces from Manhattan's RC strategy and it worked for me.
Here is what I do - nothing great or special
1. read passage and understand everything what i read
2. relate what i read with what i read before in the passage, understand contextual importance of the sentence in the passage
3. if i dont understand i reread
then jump to questions and answering RC is then piece of cake.
i scored 41 in verbal and happy with performance, each person will have to define his or her own strategy which suits to his or her personality.
kaustubhp89 SaysI agree what u say but for some answers we have to read the whole paragraph or may be full passage. In this situation how to make our reading faster so that we can cover it in a given time??
