I’m having trouble with reading section. English is not my first language and I always did horrible on reading section on test. I am aware that for this section, you have to keep practice to get hang of it. Can you guys give me some tips for this section. I heard that before start reading the passage, you should read the question first. Should I also read the multiple choice too before reading passage too?

If you’re a slower reader you should read the question first. Do not read the answers. After reading the question go ahead and read the entire passage. No use in skimming it for the information the question asked as you’ll probably have multiple questions on the passage. As you’re reading take mental notes and ask yourself what is the passage telling me? What is the overall point? Etc. There are many elements to the reading section in regards to what it will ask you. The only way to improve is to practice. In the beginning take your time and read slowly but as you progress in your study try to read faster because you don’t want to spend too  much time on one passage.
