back-to-back

Post Sat Mar 01, 2008 9:59 am
Hi, I saw couple of times term "back-to-back" for RC passages. Can anybody please shed some light on this type of RC? What's this, how to tackle it and maybe some examples? Thanks!

I believe this refers to two RC passages appearing in the GMAT consecutively, or back-to-back. That's a lot of reading!

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:

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!
