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
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.
Excellent and congrats!! Knew you would score well. What was your overall score?
Coming to RC, a couple of years back, our recommendation was to read the first and last para very intently, skim thru middle paras, create mind-map and the whole nine yards.
However, it seems that the length of RC passages on GMAT is decreasing by the day (though I don't recollect reading any official announcement). Basically passages are becoming dense and precise.
Now we recommend that test-takers read the entire passage twice, before starting to attempt questions. This simple advice has worked extremely well for our students over the past few months.
Reading the passage once Vs reading it twice really makes a BIG difference in understanding and is worth the extra time spent (this extra time, by the way, needs to be culled from SC or CR).
As ps25 rightly stated however, whatever works best...
