I wanted to get some recommendations for you concerning understanding what I am reading. I've noted that in these drills, there is a ton of convoluting language which makes me lost in the passage. I understand some of what is said but not fully all of it. What do you recommend that I do to have better understanding of what is being said. For example, part of my answer matches the books answer but the book goes further into identifying points that I did not see or bring out.
This is an update of the following drills on the RC Workbook:
I continued to work through the workbook and am not on the VIEWSTAMP section of chapter 1. I was able to go through each drill accurately summarizing it every single time with no problem. I was able to understand and keep up with each passage and drill. So to better help in finding a resolution to my question, I think the drill that I have been struggling with was simplifying the wording to large convoluting passages. I guess my idea is that you cannot accurately summarize what you do not know. Knowing the simplification drill was very hard for me, I would have expected the passages to be hard as well but for some strange reason, those came very easy. Do you think that was just a matter of that particular drill being extremely difficult?
