GRE Reading Comprehension Strategy


GRE Reading Comprehension Tips

In the below video, I talk through exactly what I'm thinking as a GRE tutor as I read a reading comprehension passage and work through the answer choices for a question. You'll learn things like:

  • How to read efficiently
  • How to tell when an author is about to say something important
  • What to NOT care about when reading
  • How to predict the answer to the question
  • How to precisely work through the answer choices to make sure you're right


Pro tip: After you check out this video, it's important to calibrate your understanding of reading comprehension questions by practicing with the official ETS GRE prep books, as well as the ETS Big Book (the old PDF with 27 tests).
