      Hi Surjeet,

      We no longer have this particular series on our blog. Sorry about that! We don’t have any articles more recent than the ones we posted from 2016, but we kept this page because these articles still provide great reading practice. You don’t necessarily need to read new articles to improve your reading comprehension and general verbal skills…as long as the syntax and vocabulary is challenging, you are doing something right! If you’re looking for more recent articles, I recommend using these links as a starting place and searching for articles with similar styles and of similar difficulty. The websites that we link here will provide plenty of great resources for extra reading practice!

    Dear Magoosh Team,

    I have started to read heavily, upon your recommendation, articles from I am really terrible – scared too – with my scores in verbal, But I hopeful because of your guidance.

    Please suggest that should I need to stop practicing Verbal because I can hardly answering three out seven on average. What makes me to quit the practice at this moment, and starts focusing and relying on reading, is that if I kept practicing all your questions I might ultimately end up with only ETS books or the ones with low quality material. I noted that once I see any question, it remains stick somewhere in my mind and when I see them again, I answer them correctly. Therefore, should I totally quit practicing verbal or reduce the quantity of recommended questions in your verbal focused 90 day plan? Please your opinion will be highly appreciated.
