RC: need exta reading materials

Post Mon Dec 18, 2006 7:11 am
Thank you Eric for your recommendation on Scientificamerica.com.

Do you know any sites that offers similar articles as GMAT's in the areas of politics, history, economics and business, etc.?
Do you think that businessweek.com and businesspundit.com are recommendable ? Do you know any good sites for political history or social science or business management?

Thanks Wink

Hi, Eric

Do you know how current the RC subjects are in the real GMAT test? Can I expect some subjects that are real issues in a today's world also?

If you have any advice to give for the best way to read the articles to aid GMAT score, please let me know.

Your help has been tremendous!!!

Thanks a lot.
Hi bobMS:

It's my understanding that the GMAT does not address current events.

I encourage you to read the Reading Comprehension blog posts on the Beat The GMAT! Blog (http://beatthegmat.blogspot.com). I have a bunch of tips there for improving your reading comprehension strategy.

Best of luck!
