Hi guys..From which of the GMAT/GRE/LSAT RC materials, could I get detailed solutions/explanations from the original source (not just answers)?
Also, in ur opinion, which material has the most confusing, esoteric sort of passages?
P.S.: I have e-books of 1000RC, Manhattan and Aristotle.
Thanx in advance :)

I am preparing for GMAT from past one month. Last week I gave my first mock (Manhattan mock 1) and I scored 51 in maths and 33 in Verbal ,Also in verbal I cracked CR with 12 out of 14 questions correct along with a good speed.

I performed very poorly in Sentence correction and Reading comprehension mostly because of very slow speed. I am ready to do anything to improve on this front.Kindly suggest some methodology, material €Ś which can help me improve.

You May pm me if you want RC 99

Folks - just wanted to give everybody here a heads-up - Once we move to the new forum, I will be closing this thread down. It's anyway gotten way too long.

Once we move to the new section, what I'd like you to do is create a thread for each problem that you want to discuss. The title should follow the format - "Source" "Type" "Question Number" "Misc information"
So thread titles will now look like "OG12 DS #247" or "TIME PS #7 Book5Pg38"

Why I am doing this -
In this thread alone there are a ton of good problems that most likely nobody is ever going to read because it's buried too deep. And that's a serious waste. The new format allows somebody to more efficiently use the tags to find a particular solution rather than reposting the question.

As always - open to suggestions and discussions

Hi,

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?

Thanks
Saurabh

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.

Hi Ashish,
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...

Hi Ashish,

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.

Hi Ashish,
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.
