Very impressive tips and I appreciate you sharing them with us. Just out of curiousity, what are your thoughts, if any, on the ACT test?
noitaraperp, wut websites or books do u recommend reading to help with CR in general? i've heard nytimes, economist, and discovery magazine are good ones.
since i wanna spend more time doing practice tests and studying vocab than "casual reading," i just need some suggestions of good reading material thats not too time consuming
finally someone who agrees with me that SAT passages should be enjoyed, unlike what kaplan has been telling us "never pay too much attention to these passages, they're not there to be enjoyed"
i agree that once you actually absorb the information given and take interest, you understand the meaning and the tone of the passage more =]
thanks so much for the method ^_^
What do you do when you're constantly stuck between two answer choices in the hard questions?
Stop internally justifying why one answer could be right, and instead make the shift to asking yourself why that answer could be wrong - play Devil's Advocate, as cliched as that may sound. I can't tell you enough how much this shift in thinking has helped me when I have been stuck between two seemingly correct choices.
