Can anybody please shed some light on this type of RC? What's this, how to tackle it and maybe some examples? Thanks! ### GMAT/MBA Expert Site Admin Joined 13 Feb 2006 Posted: 6737 messages Followed by: 972 members Upvotes: 1249 I believe this refers to two RC passages appearing in the GMAT consecutively, or back-to-back. That's a lot of reading! _________________ Beat The GMAT | The MBA Social Network Community Management Team Research Top GMAT Prep Courses: https://www.beatthegmat.com/gmat-prep-courses Research The World's Top MBA Programs: https://www.beatthegmat.com/mba/school Senior | Next Rank: 100 Posts Joined 10 Mar 2008 Posted: 30 messages Upvotes: 1 Target GMAT Score: 730 What is the difference between two? Junior | Next Rank: 30 Posts Joined 10 Jan 2007 Posted: 17 messages Thanks Eric for reply. I still don't get it though ;-(. Can you be so kind as to provide some example or so...? I found the term "back to back" in Ursula's thread (the one recommended to read as a good example of studying) and also in one of your posts (http://beatthegmat.blogspot.com/2005/04/day-14-kaplan-reading-comprehension.html) where you say: Quote: As a final note, I need to build endurance when it comes to RCs. It is damn hard keeping focus on these questions. I would die if I got back-to-back RC passages on the real GMAT, which does occasionally happen. So I guess it's important to be familiar with this particular type beforehand - hence my question. thanks! • Free Veritas GMAT Class Experience Lesson 1 Live Free Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • 1 Hour Free BEAT THE GMAT EXCLUSIVE Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • FREE GMAT Exam Know how you'd score today for$0
