    When it comes to Reading Comprehension (RC), I don’t believe that there’s one specific approach that works best for everyone. I always recommend that students spend some time experimenting with different strategies to see which one best suits their memory, reading speed and English proficiency.

    Having said that, when reading ANY Reading Comprehension (RC) passage, it's crucial that you engage 100% in the passage. So, rather than approach a new passage with dread ("I don't enjoy reading it at all"), try to feign interest ("Excellent! This passage is about stock market regulations in Peru!"). The better your engagement, the better the results.

    As far as a general strategy goes, I suggest that, as you read the passage, you should identify and summarize:
    - the theme of each paragraph (4 to 8 words)
    - conflicting points of view (4 to 8 words)
    - main idea (4 to 8 words)
    If you take good notes, you won't have to go back and re-read the passage. More importantly, when you're looking for specific pieces of information to summarize, you will better engage with the passage (which is a HUGE factor in RC success).

    If you're interested, we have a free set of videos that cover all sorts of Reading Comprehension strategies: http://www.gmatprepnow.com/module/gmat-reading-comprehension

    Cheers,
    Brent
