    Is there an effective way to eliminate/pick out the unimportant points in those really long sentences on the passage? I often get lost or lose my concentration on those sentences. Sometime they even have many different twists present in one sentences, and that annoys the hell out of me. Help:scared:

    :laugh: I know, especially when English is your second language. So any tips for those long sentences? just read them word by word?

    a lot of times i noticed that long sentences are filled with unnecessary details...look for commas, what's within them is generally extraneous info. For example: A team of biologists, consisting of harvard grad mr. x, yale grad mr. y, princetongrad mr.z, discovered new fossils. I would read that sentence as: A team of biologists discovered new fossils.
