RC is really kicking my behind right now. LR is not all that intimidating anymore since I can pretty much get most of the questions correct if I don't make stupid mistakes. Logic games.... oh well I should review the LGB and start practicing more. I have been doing the RC for the past 2 weeks and I keep missing application questions and some detail questions. The problems I have with these types are:Application question:
When I look back at the passage and start reading the relevant parts, I can't determine if I should read the entire paragraph again or just read few lines regarding the subject. When I do the latter, I always get the question wrong because one part of the answer choice I chose does not match what was said in the passage. Reading the entire paragraph once again seems to be just too much and time consuming.Detail questions:
I cannot distinguish the subtle differences of words used by the answer choices. One answer choice seems to look pretty good, and when I choose it, it is wrong and some other less good looking choice is correct.
I guess I really do not have the basics down for RC. I do enjoy reading RC passages, no problems with that. I also like to summarize and understand the structure and main point. Overall, I really like doing this section. The problem is that I keep missing these types of questions and it is so frustrating because I don't seem to improve. Does anyone have some tips on these types of questions or RC in general? I would really appreciate your help.
