I usually post on Reddit. You guys seem like a great community too. If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to answer.

Hello Gregmat,

I am looking for some RC tips. Especially questions like main idea questions.

Definitely start with the concepts and make sure you know all of them. ETS put out a document called the math review guide, which covers all of the concepts you need to know, at least to get into the 160s. After you finish master in the concepts, you need to realize that this mastery does not guarantee a high score. The official math questions are tricky and design to lead you astray and distract you and waste your time. You need to become familiar with these tricks so that you can avoid them.

As you practice more with official material, you will start to notice them more and more. Also, I would have a time management strategy. How are you going to answer the 20 questions in each math section? Are you going to jump around? Are you going to do quantitative comparison first? Maybe the chart questions first? The only thing that matters at the end of the day is the points. Do not get into a personal battle with one question, spend five minutes on it, and still get it wrong. The only thing we care about is that number at the end of the day.

Sawant91, I have some videos on my YouTube channel that outline how I approach reading. Basically, you don’t want to get too wrapped up in the factual details of each passage. The tonal shifts, main idea, opinions, and author’s stance are much more important.

Absolutely phenomenal mate! Congratulations!

I have plateaued at 80% on quantitative and 86% verbal for 2 weeks now. I am trying to do as many questions as much as possible until my test 3 days ago. I know I can do 90% in the quantitative section but I can't seem to touch it. I have gotten the same quantitative score for the last 6 manhattan test prep but my verbal score increased by 20% rather quickly. Not sure why this is as I am a double major in physics and mathematics with top grades.

I feel that I am close to 90% in the quantitative portion, just need to avoid careless mistakes due to stress on the test. Any tips or advice?

P.S. How many more questions do you need to answer correctly to jump from 80% to 90%? Also, does scoring 90% rather than 90% have a sizeable impact for getting into mid-top tier schools?

Hello,
I have taken GRE on oct15,2018 and scored 159 in quant. But I want to improve my score, and studying from Magoosh, Official ETS books.
You can try these if you want.

Good Luck!!

Hi Sawant91,

When you are incorrectly answering Reading Comprehension questions, it’s partly because you do not truly understand what you have just read, right? Thus, you likely have to slow down in order to (eventually) speed up. At this point, your best bet is to focus on getting the correct answers to questions, taking as much time as you need to see key details and understand the logic of what you are reading. You have to learn to comprehend what you read, keep it all straight, and use what you are reading to arrive at correct answers. If you don't understand something, go back and read it one sentence at a time, even one word at a time, not moving on until you understand what you have just read. There is no way around this work. Your goal should be to take all the time you need to understand exactly what is being said and arrive at the correct answer. If you can learn to get answers taking your time, you can learn to speed up. Answering questions is like any task: The more times you do it carefully and successfully, the faster you become at doing it carefully and successfully.

Another component of understanding what you are reading is being “present” when reading. Don’t worry about how things are going at work, or what you will eat for dinner, or even how long you are taking to read through the passage. Just focus on what is in front of you, word by word, line by line. Furthermore, try to make reading fun. For example, even if you are reading about a topic that bores you, pretend that you are the person making the argument. By doing so, you will make the passage more relatable to YOU, and ultimately you should be able to read with greater focus.

One final component of Reading Comprehension that may be tripping you up is that RC questions contain one or more trap answers that seem to answer the question but don't really. So, a key part of training to correctly answer RC questions is learning to notice the differences between trap answers and correct answers. You have to learn to see how trap answers seem to follow from what the passages say, but don't really, while correct answers fit what the passages say exactly.

If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out.

Good luck!
