If you are a slow reader, then DO NOT READ THE WHOLE PASSAGE before you start the questions. In fact, you should just read the italicized blurb before the passage and then go straight to the questions. Also, pick and choose which questions to answer first. I always do the "go fetch" type questions - the ones that give you the lines to look up - first. Once you are finished with these questions, you will have a better idea of the whole passage anyway. It is also important to not look at the answer choices - at first. You should always try to answer the question in your own words and then find the choice that matches your answer.
