A GOOD READER
UNDERSTANDS BETTER READS FASTER
Reading is in itself a good habit to inculcate. Besides increasing awareness and knowledge, a good reading habit will enhance your chances of cracking the exam, as you will be able to take the maximum advantage of the Reading Comprehension (RC) section as also be better equip to tackle the Verbal Ability (VA) section itself. For those who have not developed a good reading habit yet, it's time they begin.
Reading and comprehension are two integral parts of a language. People with a flair for a language will find these skills easy to master while others will have to make a conscious effort to master these skills. The importance of these skills can be gauged from the fact that they are a part of almost every entrance exam where verbal ability is to be tested. In SNAP 2016, to do well in the Reading Comprehension section, one must learn to negotiate the hurdles that one faces.
Failure to understand the meaning of words in the passage will hamper your reading, as well as, comprehension of the passage. Limited vocabulary is a major constraint in reading. An effective reader will possess a good vocabulary and will be able to find a way, even if he/ she does not know the meaning of a particular word, by understanding the context in which the word has been used. Regular improvement of vocabulary is necessary so that it does not become a deterring factor in the exam.
Often, candidates dwell too much on a particular question, consuming precious time, which could be used to tackle other questions. Given the importance of an MBA entrance exam for aspirants, they cannot afford to miss out on any question for lack of time. Management of time is a crucial aspect of solving the Reading Comprehension section. The aspirants should train themselves to read the passage within 3 minutes and solve the questions, without spending too much time on a particular question.
Attempting the comprehension without a strategy in mind might waste time and leave you confused. Regular practice of comprehension will help you work out the best strategy for yourself to attempt the passage. It could be, to read the questions first and then the passage or vice-versa or to read every word of the passage or to skim through the passage, whatever works best for you.
Reading Comprehension can be a scoring section, if you identify and remove the speed breakers which prevent you from answering the questions quickly and effectively.
