Hi everyone,

I realized last week that there are some good gmat resources on Facebook. This one group sends out gmat strategies and questions. They are actually holding a contest now for the best MBA programs in the world.

If anyone knows of any other good gmat resources on facebook, can they post it to this thread?

Here is a strategy that the facebook group sent out the other day.


Special Message on How to Solve Critical Reasoning Problems: The Diagramming Strategy


On the GMAT, you should expect to see four reading comprehension passages. Typically each passage will have 3-4 questions, for a total of 12 to 14 Reading Comprehension Questions.

Passages are either short (200-250 words) or long (over 300 words). Of the four passages you see, three of them will likely be short.

In order to solve these questions, follow the steps below:

1. Get involved in the passage

Hopefully, you will find a passage that you enjoy reading. If this is not the case, then pretend to love the passage. In order to do well on the questions, you need to get involved.

2, Find the story

You should be able to summarize the entire passage into 1 sentence. Once you do this, you will know which parts of the passage are most important.

3. Link the passage to the knowledge you have

This part requires that you visualize certain aspects of the passage. Even if you don't understand all of the passage, if you visualize what you do understand, then you will be able to come to conclusions about the meaning of other parts.

4. Examine the beginning

Make sure to focus on the first few sentences of each paragraph; they tend to be the most important.

5. Link parts of the passage to one another

Never forget the main point of the passage.

6. Keep your eye out for signals

Keep your eye out for paragraph breaks and signal words that indicate the relationship of each paragraph to the next. For example, the word "Likewise" is used to point out a similarity between paragraphs.

7. Speed up as the passage continues

Make sure that you spend the most time on the first paragraph, and then speed up your reading as the passage continues. Make sure to not get lost in the details.

Hey,
Which book you would suggest for passages...(RC)

pgpx6,

RC is a difficult area for a lot of people. How is your ability in reading passages?

Bad, Fair, very good? That'll make a difference in the material I recommend.

Answer on the thread of send me a message when you can.
