GRE Reading Comprehension

Recommended Posts


The official site says: "In each edition of the General Test, there are three or more reading comprehension passages" and this "more" is making me nervous... What is the maximum? Four? Five? I hope that more passages means that each one will be not very long so that the total number of lines in all editions is more or less the same.

I think 3 is typical, since there's a limit on how many RC questions they can throw in there. I had 3 for mine, 2 short pieces with 2 questions each, and 1 long piece with 4 questions (coincidentally it was about the history of chemistry, and being a chemist myself I actually rather enjoyed the read).
