Reading Comprehension is one of the more challenging sections to prepare for on the GMAT. Most test takers have been reading their whole lives - how do you learn how to read better? This is especially tricky, given that the GMAT provides a new set of challenges, including time constraints, academic language, and questions that allow for only one interpretation of the passage (forget the open-ended, "there are no wrong answers" mentality you were taught in college).

So how can you improve your Reading Comprehension performance? These articles provide key strategies and resources to help you master Reading Comprehension passages and questions in your study and on test day.

I have an examination of reading comprehension. The tips assisted me a lot, while educating my reading, but occasionally the text you read is easy to appreciate but questions for it are so much perplexing and it's hard to answer it especially on progressive level.

Tests don't only measure what you know, they measure how well you take tests.

Anxiety, lack of focus, and compromised time management can negatively impact your performance and score.

On GMAT/GRE Reading portions people believe top performance is based on memorizing details or 'mapping out' the essays. It's not so: 80% of the questions come from 20% of what you've read. Others believe their RC score will improve with only understanding questions and how GMAC/ETS formulates correct and incorrect answers. That's only part of the equation. There is another important skill lacking in most test prep programs but is instrumental in top RC performance - - becoming a more efficient and effective reader. We train test takers to increase their reading speed up to 5x, without compromising comprehension.
This translates to more time to spend on questions. As such, we've seen verbal scores reliably improve 14%+, on average.

Our MindFlow training is exclusively offered through in person in select cities, as an online offering, and through private tutorials. Information can be found on theMindFlow website, https://www.mindflowclass.com.

Feel free to contact me directly if you have questions.
