If I were to point out one single skill that strongly correlates with your final GMAT Score, it would be ‘Reading’.

Ability to read fast not only helps for the RC section of the GMAT, but is also invaluable in the whole of the Verbal section.

Moreover, a fast reader can shave off seconds on each Quant problem by reading and digesting the information quickly.

But there is more…..  being able to read faster will also help you throughout your career. Most of the top managers have reading speeds that are double the national average.

Good Reading skills will not only help you immensely on ALL sections of the GMAT, but throughout your professional career.

So how do you improve your Reading skills?

Well, if you look at hundreds of ‘Reading Programmes’ available  in the market, each one pushing their own ‘strategies & techniques’, it is easy to get confused.

Is there a book or a programme that helps you improve your Reading Speed, but with reference to the gmat exam?

Unfortunately, there is none!!

Well, there was none, till the ‘Essential Guide to GMAT Reading’ came along.

This is book that contains winning strategies for improving your reading speed, and more importantly, enables you to apply these to the GMAT RC section.

Some of the unique features of this book are:

1. Addresses the problem rather than the symptoms. It does not give you dry tips to improve your performance in RC. It gives you strategies to improve your Reading Speed and then applies these strategies to the RC section.

2. Contains proven methods that have helped scores of students double/triple their reading speed WITH Better Comprehension.

3. A thorough analysis of various RC question types and strategies you can apply to each of these.

4. Detailed discussion of which strategies you can apply to come out a Winner on the GMAT RC.

5. Over 100+ Unique RC questions from varied passages for you to practice your newfound skills.

Reading is natural to all of us & poor reading is more because of  bad reading habits rather than any innate disability.

Using the right techniques and methods, it is possible to get rid of poor reading habits and considerably increase your Reading Speed.

This comprehensive 150+ page book will do just that. It will help you:

  • Identify the ‘blocks’ to reading faster.
  • Clear these blocks and double/triple your reading speed.
  • To apply the same strategies that GMAT RC Winners use to get that 99 percentile.

And above all, it will help you become a better and faster reader in a much shorter time than any other course/book/programme.

Over the years that I have taught the GMAT Verbal, and from my own GMAT experience ( I have scored 99 percentile in GMAT Verbal. (See my score here), I have compiled this book to specifically help out students who want to improve their reading skills in general & score big on the GMAT Reading Comprehension section in particular.

Why Should you Buy this Guide?

Reading is perhaps the most important skill on the GMAT.

Most of the commonly available GMAT prep books address the symptoms rather than the problem of slow reading, resulting only in incremental improvements in your RC performance.

You simply cannot improve your GMAT RC performance without addressing the underlying causes of slow reading and getting rid of ‘bad’ reading habits.

I have trained scores of smart students, who did well in All sections of the GMAT, except the RC. And this is primarily because reading skills take time to develop, and you need to thoroughly understand your reading habits and focus on improvement areas.

Over the years, we have closely observed which techniques/methods result in maximum improvement in reading skills in the minimum time.

These concepts are now included in the ‘Essential Guide to GMAT Reading Comprehension’.

This book focuses not only on the reading techniques, but how to apply these techniques to solving the various types of GMAT passages and questions.

One of the most important parameter that the admissions committee looks for, especially in case of Non Native speakers, is their English score. Your Verbal score doesn’t have to be in the nineties, but the closer the better. It has to be high enough to convince them that you deserve that offer letter.

This guide has been especially written from real life experience teaching the nuances of Reading Comprehension to hundreds of students..

This  guide was originally prepared exclusively for students who take private coaching from my- gmat.

Now it is being made available for anyone who has trouble with the GMAT Reading Comprehension
