where is the passage boss iam not able to view it
I have not given GMAT so take my points with a pinch of salt. OG is made by GMAC so where there could be different kind of passages, the basic concept behind the RCs will be same as of GMAT.
You can practice the RCs by going through different books and keep these things in mind while a...

Hi All,
RC is my weak area, for RC i'm following OG-10 & OG-11. can anybody tell me upto which degree there is similarity between the RCs in the OGs and the RCs in the GMAT? Similarity in terms of complexity of the passage, length of the passage etc..

i think the answer to Q2 could be C.
the author acknowledges the fact that the labours were rightly skeptical towards unions.
and yet, this attitude was an obstacle.So option C might be right.
"regret" in E appears a little too strong.
please let us know the answers soon, dextar.
1. (c) Randolphs efforts in the battle helped transform the attitude of Black workers toward unions .......
2. (E) All other options are talking about particular period. in (C) and (D), 'ambivalence' and 'appreciation' are incorrect. (a) implies that author sympathizes with the attempts - ...

Lemme come in here ........... anyone here !!!
Where is everybody? Isn't anyone doing RC these days?Im feeling so lonely out here :D
Dextar pal, what about you?
Thats true.Revising the RC from OG 11 wont be much help.
I dont have any other practice material either.We are in a similar kinda situation.
By the way, when are u appearing for the gmat?
I've already finished OG-11. As far as RC is concerned, I don't think there is any point in revising Rc again from OG-11 (Can do for SC and CR). Rc needs practice and I don't have any other exhaustive source other than Kaplan Premier and Princeton Review. So have to go for 1000 series.ANy t...
Oops :(
1 A seems rite.
I dont know why I was looking at (and quoted in the answer too )the 3rd sentence of the 3rd paragraph instead of the 1st sentence of 2nd paragraph.
The other 2 Qs are only half-answered by the choices u mentioned.The main idea in the passage is that Synthesis of t...
