The best tip for the reading section is to read in English regularly. The Educational Testing Service, which creates the test, suggests focusing on textbooks and other nonfiction texts such as science and business passages. When preparing, students need to practice reading skills such as making inferences and drawing conclusions. Though it isn’t necessary to know every word in order to comprehend a passage, students should study academic vocabulary when preparing. Practicing test-taking strategies such as reading the questions first, skimming for key facts and reading carefully for answers is also helpful.
