How to Improve the Reading Comprehension

Post Mon Apr 18, 2016 11:10 pm
Dear test makers,
I have a big problem on reading comprehension, here are two big issues:

1) time pressure and accuracy rate
I timed the section RC, normally I will need 30-40min to finish a passage, and choose 0 ~ 1 correct answer per passage.

2) always misunderstanding
I found I always made a big misunderstand, that's why I spend lots time to reread and hesitate which answer should choose.
sometimes I think I got the idea of the passage, unfortunately, failed to choose the correct answer.

is there anyone propose:
how to improve my reading ability to keep 75%+ accuracy rate in 2 months for Chinese.
finish a passage within a required time and high accuracy rate

Appreciate!!

have a nice day

Hello,

The best way to prepare is to practice until you feel comfortable with the material. There are really no tricks or shortcuts, just repetition, study and practice. We offer many verbal preparation materials here: http://www.mba.com/store. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,
Jeremy
