In your reading test you will need to read texts and answer questions within a short period of time.

The question that we get asked time and time again is: Should I read the questions first or should I read the text first?

Many teachers recommend reading the questions first so that you know what to read for, you have something to specifically look for (i.e., key words in a question).  However, this may not be the best approach for you, personally. Some prefer to take a couple of minutes to skim through the text to get a general idea of what it is about before reading the questions.

The key point: We recommend you try both approaches and determine which method is best for you.
