"read" and "do not read" in GRE test

"read" and "do not read" in GRE test

The so-called macro, even if a clear essay structure. And then clear the point that, even if we want to know the location of the topic sentence, and each section to the effect. Let us find out what is the topic sentence, topic sentences ETS reading articles usually appear in whatever form. Writing the text and the Chinese candidates themselves, "I think that Americans read the article never, in my opinion, as far as I am considered such languages ??do topic sentences. Generally speaking there are two forms of the topic sentence of Americans:

Topic sentence in two forms:

1. Judge sentences (Feelings modal verb, the verb, plus or minus appraise word sentence); The summary article future structure.

Such as a sentence: Your minds changed my attitude no sentient modal verbs and verb in this sentence, the words naturally not judge sentence, so it is not the topic sentence. But as long as a positive and negative appraise word in this sentence, that is a word that attitude or perspective of the word that the judge sentence.

For example, Your minds successfully changed my attitude that the judge sentence. In addition, if a sentence is not to judge the sentence, as long as it can summarize the article structure in the future, and later in the article where several aspects to explain, is the topic sentence.

For example, People are living longer now. Statement certainly is not a topic sentence, and if this is what the People are living longer now since the improvement of food condition and the development of medical technology, this sentence is the topic sentence. Because it summarizes the article later described where several directions.

Master topic sentence judgment, many articles students will be able to quickly grasp the structural framework of the article, and understanding to help behind the article. For example, the beginning of the article, Mycorrhizal fungi infect more plants than do any other fungi and are necessary for many plants to thrive, but they have escaped widespread investigation until recently for two reasons. First, the symbiotic association is so well-balanced that the roots of host plants show no damage even when densely infected Second, the fungi can not as yet be cultivated in the absence of a living root the first sentence of the judge sentence shall topic sentence.

The topic sentence also outlines the future structure of the article, and that influence is very strong, "and from the" M fungi "M fungi not been widely studied due to two reasons.

The following immediately see the first and second, we know that hard to read these two sentences is nothing more than two reasons the M fungus has not been extensively studied only specific which two reasons, we can almost ignore read.

Microscopic "read" and "do not read"

The so-called micro-, even if a clear sentence structure. Clear that, even if we have to know the sentence to the backbone of the effect and the relationship and the context.

Speaking of the contents can not read, many students will think Parenthesis can not read. What is Parenthesis? Between two commas parenthesis it? Today, let's focus to look parenthesis. First of all, we know that is not between two commas must be parenthetically, many students will be misled by the traditional teacher, mistaken judgment parenthesis in the interpretation of the comma before the content can be as long as the look is not a comma between, but if parenthesis do not read, you sometimes How do I know this is the interpretation of the comma before it? fact, parenthesis two forms:

Parenthesis two forms:

1 Subject Description ________, Which / who / n. / Prep. /-Ing /-ed ......, ________.

2 subject example ________, Such as / especially ......, ________.

Therefore, as long as we see the first comma followed which / who / preposition / gerund / verb, past participle / such as / especially the situation or two commas only pure term, that from the first start to a comma behind the nearest punctuation (comma or period) between parenthesis must often ignored reading. And the only thing we focus only need to read the sentence "main, so-called, Penn."

Prepared to review the "read" and "do not read"

Many students will be painful, review reading progress, and even sometimes rather than beginning wrong also. In my opinion, this is mainly students review method shall not be deemed to result. Many students in reviewing for reading, usually one day an article to do title, which not only can not help you summarized mastered the GRE reading skills, the contrary is a waste of time.

The best refresher reading is to start not directly read the article title, have mastered a certain amount of words and long sentences on the basis of intensive training to ensure that the focus on breakthrough intensive refresher. In that, Intensive 6-8 articles a day, and continued for about two weeks. The so-called intensive reading that a clear understanding of the article microscopic meaning of every word and role in the text, as well as fully understand each option. This helps to help students summarize the article and the topic of the law.

Scientific and effective way to master the the GRE reading exam skills, pro forma and do questions ideas will be more clear, do question the speed and accuracy will be improved accordingly. Students making new GRE Reading Comprehension training should pay summarize accumulate experience, not the blind pursuit of quantity, to the best knowledge to improve the new GRE logical reading ability is not in a day to fight the "protracted war".
