reading comprehension practice

Post Mon Jan 28, 2008 8:23 pm
I have been working diligently to fix all mistakes errors on reading comprehension. Manhattan GMAT worked well for me and it helped me understand how to choose the right answers. My question is I have been doing the official guide questions and want to keep studying in order to stay fresh. however, I am starting to remember the question and it is no longer new information to me. What should I do? I want to study from actual questions and have actual explanations for them. what to do?

If you have exhausted the OG questions, you could always download GMATPrep for 'actual' questions.

Additionally, you could buy a bunch of used study books from half.com. I recommend Kaplan -- 2003-2005 versions are fine, and can be purchased for $1 plus shipping.

In my opinion the Kaplan RC explanations are outstanding, but Princeton books are also available for cheap on half.com.

Are you sure that the old editions have different RC passages?

We can work on LSAT packages to improve comprehension, but the passages are generally large, unlike GMAT passages and are difficult as well. How about the GRE passages? Any one tried them?

Thanks
