Hey 7Sagers,

For a whole month, I'll be leading Reading Comp review sessions every other day. These sessions are open to all 7Sagers who have an account, free or paid.

In total, I'm going to cover 8 PTs of RC. That's 32 passages.
I'll do this over 16 sessions, covering two passages per session.

All sessions will start at 9pm and end at midnight, Eastern Time.
If you're on the west coast, that's 6pm - 9pm, Pacific Time.

Should I join these sessions?
If you've finished or are almost finished with the RC section of the Core Curriculum, then this is meant for you. At minimum, I will assume that you've finished every lesson in the "Reading Comprehension - Science" lesson set. First lesson from that class is here.

How many of these sessions should I join?
Probably half or fewer. The reason is because you don't want to waste PTs. You'll learn something from these sessions but the returns diminish at some point. And there's value in keeping a subset of these PTs clean so you can use them as fully timed PTs.

What happens in these sessions?
We'll read the passage together, paragraph by paragraph. I'll ask you to make low resolution summaries of each paragraph. We'll use those low res summaries to build higher resolution summaries. Then, we'll answer the questions together.

How should I prepare?
Have a clean, unmarked copy of the PT ready in front of you so we can read and answer the questions together. Please wear headphones and try to be in a quiet place. It's okay if you've done the passage before. It's also okay if you've never seen the passage before.

Will these sessions be recorded?
No. If you're looking for video explanations of these passages, you can find them on your Progress page.

How do I join?
Please join my meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.

    @Lmynor Sorry, these sessions won't be recorded. There are already video explanations in the course for the RC in PTs 58-65.

    This is awesome, thanks for arranging! Should we do the section in advance and treat this as BR/review or come to the sessions without reading in advance?

    JY, thank you so much to have this experience with you!!

    I am travelling thru next Monday night but printed out a fresh copy of PT58 & 59 (thanks to Ultimate +) I will not have wi-fi and not in an environment to actively participate but plan on calling in for the first few sessions if ok to listen in? Look forward to future sessions to be more actively involved!

    Yay!! So awesome!

    @twssmith Yes, that's fine.

    Hi JY! I'm still in the Logical Reasoning portion of the core curriculum, but I could skip ahead and try to get through the RC curriculum so I can participate in this. Do you recommend skipping ahead or just staying on the path as its intended? Thanks!

    Nope! You don’t need Ultimate.

    You can join as long as you've finished every lesson in the "Reading Comprehension - Science" lesson set.

    @suznannthomp, I'm also wondering if I should skip ahead in the curriculum to join in on these sessions. I'm currently at MBT and MBF Qs (pretty early on in the core curriculum). Is it worth me joining these sessions with no prior study? Should I skip ahead?

  • J.Y. PingJ.Y. Ping Administrator Instructor

    @"Nicole Tan" @suznannthomp

    It's not a bad idea. But don't skip the Argument nor Grammar set of lessons. And you should do the RC lessons I mentioned above.

    I think these sessions might be great opportunities for 7Sagers to learn J.Y.'s method of doing AB passages (dual/comparative passages).

    Here is a list of AB passages and dates of sessions:

    PT58 Passage 4: Sat, May 5
    PT59 Passage 1: Mon, May 7
    PT60 Passage 2: Fri, May 11
    PT61 Passage 3: Thu, May 17
    PT62 Passage 3: Mon, May 21
    PT63 Passage 4: Fri, May 25
    PT64 Passage 3: Tue, May 29
    PT65 Passage 3: Sat, Jun 2

    @suznannthomp If anyone is in the same situation as me, I would highly recommend you go ahead and join a session. I skipped ahead in the syllabus, started "Intro to Reading Comprehension" this morning and got through as much as I could. I was feeling nervous about joining and not having enough foundational knowledge to follow the conversation, but am so glad I pushed ahead. JY did a great job of going through all the questions and passages in a really thorough, comprehensive way, so I didn't find myself lost (well, not for very long at least).

    Hey guys I recently skipped ahead in the CC because I really want to join these RC review sessions. I heard it was a good idea to at least complete the Science Section of the RC and I am like halfway through but not done yet. Do you think it's still a good idea if I join tonight? Like i said i want to take advantage of these sessions. Some insight would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

  • thinkorswimthinkorswim Alum Member

    @ColinTurner610 I think its a good idea. J.Y. provides invaluable insight as always and might help refine your way of thinking. The reason why you shouldn't come to too many of these is because you would be burning through valuable resources. IMO definitely come for the A / B comparative passage as J.Y's method might be hard to implement on your own by just watching pre-recorded videos. Hope to see you there !

  • Nicole TanNicole Tan Alum Member

    @ColinTurner610, I did the exact same thing and jumped in on a review session when I was halfway through the Science section. I think you should absolutely go ahead and join. I was able to follow the conversation, and found it really helpful to have an interactive session with JY. I also agree with @VanishingTaxAct about reviewing the A/B comparative passage approach that JY takes.
