RC - author's attitude and main point questions

Postby horrorbusiness » Sun Aug 14, 2011 1:34 pm

Lately i've been missing about 4-6 per practice test in RC, with a common trend of missing author's attitude and main point questions. With author's attitude I almost always easily get it down to two ACs but have trouble choosing between them. Same with main point - it's easy enough to eliminate two or three wrong choices, but then i feel that there's a level of subjectivity that could make either of the remaining answers correct. Please advise.

Main point questions can be tough. Make sure that every portion of the answer choice is addressed in the passage.

With author's attitude, it is almost always the less extreme choice. For example, if you are between "unconvinced" and "abhorred," the former is more likely to be right.
