RC timing - order of passages strategy

Postby lawschool64 » Tue May 08, 2012 12:41 am

Looking for some insight on general timing strategies for Reading Comprehension. I am pretty comfortable with RC in general, but I feel I often make too many careless mistakes rushing/worrying about time (I finish but may go too fast at times). I've tried different strategies, but I was wondering if anything in particular worked really well for anyone else. And in timing strategies I mean do you do all the passages with the most questions first, look to do the passages that have the easiest topic first, or a combination? Thanks for the help.

I look for friendly subject matter. If there's some boring science shit or something I skip that noise and leave it for later.

I do a quick count of questions for each passage and then work my way from most questions to least. I always seem to have 5-7 minutes left for the last passage so I'd rather have less questions for that one.
