On the GMAT it will always boil down to a question or two here and there. As we have discussed in an earlier post, you can make only about 11-12 mistakes in the Verbal Section to score reach a 700, provided you get a 49-50 on Quant, making about 7-8 mistakes or fewer. While it might seem like a healthy margin for error, when we break it down into question-types, the margin for error will not seem that wide.
In the previous post, we discussed the various approaches, strategies and DOs and DON’Ts to improve your accuracy on GMAT RC questions. In this passage we shall take up a long passage and see how the strategies need to be applied.
As discussed on the previous post, RC is the bugbear of most India test-takers. Surprisingly, most test-takers complain of having low accuracy levels on RC questions while maintaining high accuracy levels on CR questions. What is the reason for this anomaly? Why is it that those who are good at CR are still unable to do well on RC?
We have discussed all other question types in depth on this blog thus far with the exception of Reading Comprehension, which is hence pretty conspicuous by its absence. So this is the first in a series of posts that to fill that gap.
