RC - Help!!!

    Hi there!

    I've been a passive participant in the forum for 3 weeks. I'm rushing the entire prepping in 5 weeks. I have 2 weeks to go.

    My background - Accountancy grad, CPA. I was into Project Finance/CorpFin and now doing Credit Research.

    Thank heavens, my quant is going well. My SC was pathetic on my 1st try. I got half of the questions wrong. I was able to cut those errors into half after 4 days -- I studied Sahil's notes for 8 times! After a week, I'm doing good in SC.

    However, I'm not happy with my RC. I get about 1/4 of the questions wrong. Any advice on attacking RC?

    Thanks in advance!

    RC is a really tough subject area to provide recommendations because it depends so much on the individual. I recommend spending some time reading through the RC resources available at:

    http://beatthegmat.blogspot.com, and
    http://del.icio.us/beatthegmat

    The trick is to do some experimentation and try a variety of approaches. You may be surprised that an approach completely different from the one you're currently using produces the best results.

    Best of luck in your prep!

    My current "problem" in Quant -- how to maximize the 75 minutes. In my practice tests, I finish 35 problems in 54 minutes. Decent enough but I believe, my pacing is a bit too fast. Sad

    Yes, that pace is definitely too fast. One question for you: Are you scoring in the upper 40s/lower 50s in quant as is? If so, then maybe you don't need to worry about pacing.

    I would practice slowing down for each question and using your 'extra' time to make sure you aren't making careless errors.
