Umm... Does anyone know how to ace the critical reading section? I'm really not good at reading comprehension, and now that they're adding more reading stuff on the test I don't think I have a chance of scoring high. Can anyone share any techniques they do, or even books...? I've tried 10 real SATs and the Princeton Review... and Kaplan... but nothing seems to work.

for the harder questions- never pick the obvious one, its almost always wrong. i think the key is being objective and understanding the passage. also for questions where there are like two answers to them- theres always one answer that is either slightly extreme/disparaging/unsupported (by the passage, but may seem like common sense to you or 'conventional')
also make sure you give yourself time at least 15-16 min for the CR, dont rush
