Strategies for the Reading Test
Strategies for the Reading Test
Of the four subject tests, it can be the most difficult to prepare for the Reading Test. Doing well on the Reading Test is not a matter of having tricks up your sleeve. When you come to a question that asks about a passage’s main point, you can’t rely on some handy main-point trick to figure out the answer—either you know it or you don’t.
That said, you can use a general strategy to improve your performance on the test. We like to think of this general strategy as a macro approach to the entire Subject Test, rather than micro tips to get you from question to question. The crux of the strategy is your ability to read well—that is, with speed and without sacrificing comprehension.
