Infer differently from GMAT OG folks

    I can see that I consistently infer differently from GMAT Official Guide people. [-(

    Inference questions are the ones I get wrong the most Sad(

    And I am not even talking Kaplan. I do not even understand what those Kap passages are trying to say.

    Here are some observations of myself trying to tackle RC:
    * I skim while reading.
    * I tend to answer questions from my memory, mostly and do not go back to the passage.
    * I freak out at seeing words or complex paras that I cannot understand.
    * I seem to 'give up' after reading a complex passage. I kind of feel, damn, this passage is f'd up, I am going to get all the answers wrong.

    Appreciate any ideas from the RC gurus on how to improve on inference and RC in general?

    On the brighter side, I am pretty good at Sentence Correction.
