Great strategy, but the problem is when i begin reading the passage till the part i marked the line citation, i ask myself "what the heck am i suppose to think about this underline phrase". Even if i have annotations saying SUGGEST or AUTHOR INFERS, i can't make anything out of the underlined citations UNTIL i read the question itself, and then i have to go back to the passage and read it in context which consequently wastes a lot of time for me. So i ended up reading a certain portion of the passage two-three times.
I find it better off to just read the question, then i know what i am looking for and then read the passage in context. I was wondering if you encouter this difficulty in your method.
noita, before we go about starting the Critical Reading sections in the SAT review books, should we read A LOT of books, magazines, newspaper, etc. (and memorize vocab) for many months first?
p.s. i'm going to be a junior in September
