stuck on details!

Post Sun Oct 07, 2007 10:13 am
I am getting better on my main weakness of reading comprehension. MY problem is I noticed that I am losing almost all points to specific detail questions along with inference questions. IS there a place I can go or book I can do to DRILL this into my head. Please let me know and all other comments welcome.

sure.
Hey, Just wanted to let you know, in what sequence you should follow (rather the sequence I followed)

1. Princeton (easy)
2. Kaplan (level is higher than Princeton)
3. Verbal supplement.
4. OG10
5. OG11 (Surprised to see that OG 10 has more number of questions than OG11)

6. Tests and Kaplan 800.

But for your AWA, I guess first 2 books are more than sufficient.

Hey buddy. Let me be very practical in my response. See, if you have time, go ahead with 3000RC link that is available on internet.

But, my suggestion is do not go for 3000RC, as you will be wasting time. If you thing you are godd at English (as you are non-native), there are lot of other ways to improve your reading skills, like read your favourite magazine, daily newspaper.

Do your Princeton, Kaplan, OG10 and OG11 (both are must), Verbal RCs for sure. Now, after doing these, if you feel that you have time left and that you have mastered SC, CR, PS and DS, then go ahead with 3000RC and LSAT.
I did it that way, so just analize yourself first and then follow what you feel is rigyt for you.
