There is only one trick, and I think a lot of people will back me up on this.Listen guys I have been trying to do the kaplan method for reading, and i dont even get to answer 1/2 the questions, what is the best way to do this please help????
hey phraud, how long did it take you to practice reading the JAMA before you actually took the DAT? The reason why I asked is because when I read my mind would also wander and I would have no idea on what I am reading and starting coming up with b.s. on what I think the story is about.I had a habit of having my mind wander while reading a passage. I would finish reading a paragraph and then realize I had no idea what I just read. I practiced reading with my girlfriend's JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association... I think that's what it stands for) magazines. Would sit down and read a paragraph, close the magazine, and then summarize what I just read in my head. I would keep doing that, and then work up to 2 paragraphs at a time, and then to 3, etc.
This method worked for me. It may not work for you. Everyone has their own way of doing the RC section. I consider my reading skills very average. I have a horrible vocabulary, and have a hard time understanding dense material. I found the passages very... doable.
Oh yeah, I scored a 21 on my real DAT. I hope this helps!
