Read the Whole Passage
Read the Whole Passage
Yes, we already gave you this advice in the “Strategies” section earlier in the book. But we think it’s such good advice that we’ll give it again: you should read (or at least skim) the whole passage. You may want to underline key phrases or transitions that help you decode the passage and that help you understand how its parts fit together. This strategy is particularly important for answering Rhetorical Skills questions. Quite a few Rhetorical Skills questions demand that you have a good understanding of the passage’s content, tone, and purpose. You won’t have that understanding if you haven’t read (or at least skimmed) the entire passage.
