Tips for improving reading speed

by beatthegmat » Sat Apr 15, 2006 2:24 pm
Are you a person with a particularly slow reading rate? If so, you may be handicapped on the GMAT because timing is crucial for success. Here is a set of guides for improving your reading speed. I've heard good responses from people who have used these guides.

Hi zhangjun111:

A basic understanding of English vocabulary is a MUST for the GMAT--if you feel like you are really lacking in this knowledge, then yes, perhaps vocabulary should be an area you should practice.

Thanks Eric I downloaded these docs today.

I'm also hit by slow reading speed,lack of comprehension and reading the passage over and over again.
