Hello, I was just wondering how some of you high scorers on the verbal sections actually "prepare" for the Verbal section (I can't seem to get my Verbal score over 720). More specifically, how do you guys prepare for the Critical Reading section? I enjoy reading (mainly American Lit) and and I have done many practice tests but I still can't make an improvement on my Critical Reading score.

How do guys approach the Critical Reading passages and questions?

Also, how can I make the most out of doing practice tests?

Lastly, what are some good novels, periodicals, essays that are good prep tools for Critical Reading or are just interesting and stimulating?

Thanks for reading my post and I will greatly appreciate any responses and feedback :-)

I'm in the same position as you.

I get 780-800 Math, 700-720 Verbal.

The Critical Reading is what gets me on the verbal section.
