Reading Comprehensions are an integral part of almost every exam, and one cant run away from them no matter how hard they are. I have been struggling to find methods to work around for solving RC passages and thankfully came across this book. Although it targets at GRE RC passages specifically, there are many methods and approaches described in the initial pages which will help every student irrespective of a particular exam. I found them very informative.
Also I picked this one as of course I want to prepare for GRE, and not only it includes 325 RC passages segregated into different topics, but it also has all the information one needs to know about The GRE exam, how is it conducted, its pattern, marking system, time allotted, how to register etc. And the big and spaced out neat fonts were just icing on the cake. I strongly recommend this one to all the GRE aspirants and students struggling with RC Passages.
All I can say is that, its not only just appropriate to solve GRE, but its very helpful for all competitive exams. It has more than 325 solved papers. Its very useful for critical study and its not only just solved paper but the best part is that it has the description how to answer better and make it more proper. The detailed explanations made this book more useful.
It has so many examples and study material that are so helpful.
The book is really well structured.
The passages are also very helpful for vocabulary and many more.
A very useful and must read of youre studying for competitive exam!
Book is good in the sense that it provides a lot of questions to practice. But I still dont that questions are similar to GRE questions in full extent.
I asked for the older edition but got this one. The older one was rated 5 star by all the buyers, this one is a better version than older one, there are 60% more passages which have been categorised into various domains like humanities, Social Sc etc. I havent gone through the entire book but worked out few passages at a random order and I feel this book is definitely worth having, esp at this cost. It gives you lot of practice, which is the only way to improve in GRE/GMAT RC. The only problem which I could see is that it has very few very long passages.
GRE Reading Comprehension: Detailed Solutions to 325 Questions is part of the Test Prep Series by Vibrant Publishing. This series has guides for GRE, GMAT and SAT preparation. This version is specifically about the reading comprehension section of the GRE exam. The book starts with a thorough introduction to the GRE exam, with FAQ and helpful test taking tips and strategies. Next it describes the reading comprehension section in more detail, explaining the types of questions included. There are also detailed and specific strategies for answering the specific type of multiple choice questions found in this section. At the end of the book is an answer key with detailed explanations of each question.
I do exam and study prep with secondary and post secondary students and was interested in another resource to help them with multiple choice questions. I havent specifically helped students prepare for the GRE, but the information presented specific to that exam seems helpful. For students that I work with, I think the general tips on exam taking, and multiple choice questions in particular, will be very useful. There are hundreds of questions sorted by subject area which will be helpful for students needing to practice understanding passages, and answering multiple choice questions in the subjects they wish to focus on. The variety of questions also will allow me to find questions suitable to the level at which my students are working.
I would recommend this book for students preparing for the GRE, as well as anyone studying for, or helping a student prepare for, secondary or postsecondary exams.
