idk, the reading comprehension on the PCAT is all science type of passages so its not that bad.shaq786 said:Post your reading comprehension strategy here. Here is mine...
So far for the kaplan tests, it seems the best route is to read the whole passage once then jump into the questions.
Well since thare are 6-7 passages, do you think scores would be high if one spends all their time on 4 to 5 passages (i.e. anwering about 28-32 questions) and guessing on the others as one runs out of time?ForcedEntry said:I didn't read a single passage. I read the question...then found the answer. This gets a little harder when they don't put any keywords in the question.
Those damn dirty apes.
I am not a fast reader so I think focusing on 4-5 passages intently would have left many unanswered questions on my test. I am also not too keen on guessing.advisorRx said:Well since thare are 6-7 passages, do you think scores would be high if one spends all their time on 4 to 5 passages (i.e. anwering about 28-32 questions) and guessing on the others as one runs out of time?
Thanks for the tip...you must be a fast reader perhaps? Were you able to finish Kaplan's and Cliffnotes reading passages on time? Just wanted to compare. On Kaplan and Cliffnotes, I always get caught on that last passage.DJ_Pop_N'_Fresh said:Definitely read through (or skim through if you're not a fast reader and short on time) the passage first and then look at the questions. That way you at least know what paragraph the answer to the question is in.
I used that strategy and I had at least 10 minutes left to go back and check all the answers I wasn't 100% positive on.
