I am sorry to announce that the online service has been discontinued as of 31 August 2014.

But please read along (Especially since you are here to practice reading comprehensions anyway)

Sorry, But as promised earlier codecoax RC practice is officially closed.

However I will post all my updates for the stand-alone desktop app in here. So stay tuned

Stand-alone program

HTML C++
I would encourage you consider the C++ version as it is under more active developmental focus

Useful links


Installation Instruction

If you are not a developer then download the zipped repository and extract it in your computer. At this point if you run the RC.html file it will show 5 random RCs without any questions. Instead of questions it will show "Question 1?, Option 1, Option 2, Answer 1 etc etc". This is NOT an error. It DOES NOT contain any real RC data. The RC data can be found from the link provided above. You can replace the file "data.js" with the downloaded one to get access to all the Reading comprehensions.

I DO NOT own or claim any rights to the data used in this program.
The HTML offline utility was written hastily. I just reused the same javascript code that I used for the site. It is just a simple webpage and it will be injustice to call it a program. As I received at least 500 requets in three days I rewrote the program as a stand-alone desktop application.

If you are using the Mac version then right click on the app and select "Show Package Contents" then navigate to the folder Contents → MacOS. Here you can see the data.xml file. Replace it with the downloaded one.

It's a pleasure that I could help you in your preparation but I am sorry to say that I DO NOT have explanation for the answers and the source of all these RCs are located here at urch forum, here at beating #GMAT & beyond and here at 4shared. I take no responsibility or claim of the source as I DO NOT know the real auther or collector of any of those RC questions in there. So asking me for explanation of any kind will be futile. Also I am not a verbal tutor and I took my exam 6-7 years ago therefore asking me for any advice is also not going to help.

Hi all, Thanks for using the software. For all the people who got it working; Could any of you write a better installation instruction in the comments for people who are struggling to run this program offline in their computers. Because it seems like my instructions are not clear enough for some people to follow.

This is the best RC practice tool. Thank you so much for all your efforts. :)

please get that back !!!

Lagnajeet Pradhan   (09-03-2014)

The stand-alone versions are identical to what the service used to be. And once downloaded they can be used locally without the use of the internet. I'm sorry if downloading and installing the program is too much of work for some people. Thanks.

Hi Lagnajeet, Is there any way to maximise the window?

Lagnajeet Pradhan   (09-14-2014)

Maximizing it will change the line numbers. So I kept it fixed size so that the line numbers will stay consistent across different screen resolutions and operating systems.

thanks Lagnajeet Prdhan sir.It's working.I hope the RC passages will improve my verbal score.

Hi Lagnajeet, This is certainly an excellent work and thank you for helping so many students out there. 1 thing which I found about the .exe suspicious is, that the actual questions are not shown. It just says "Question 1" followed by various Options. So, the .exe does not help much in practicing RC. I believe the tool is properly in my system. I am basing my belief on the fact that even the video posted here as "demo" shows only text "Question 1" with no question following it. If you can fix this, it will of great help. Thanks Again.

Please read the installation instructions carefully.
BTW is it just me or you also think that it's ironic that a lot of people miss to read the installation instructions for a reading comprehension practice software. :-)

Thank you for your effort in reviving codecoax.

Ankit    (09-11-2014)

Yes i understand that, But whenever i try to open the downloaded "data-xml.zip" file an error message pops up saying "the archive is either in unknown format or damaged". So basically m unable to open the zip file from which i have to extract the data.xml file.

comment

Lagnajeet Pradhan   (09-11-2014)

Try re-downloading it or use a different software(like 7zip or PeaZip) to open the zip file.

Ankit   (09-10-2014)

Hello Lagnajeet,
I downloaded the zip executable file and extracted all the four files to a folder 1) data.xml
2) line_no.gif
3) RC_Practice_utility
4) RC_Practice_utility.exe


I then ran the .exe file which shows question 1? etc..

As advised by you i then downloaded the file "data-xml.zip" from the link provided.

NOw you are asking me to replace this "data-xml" file with data.xml which is not possible as the format of both these files is different.

So please help me with this.

comment

Lagnajeet Pradhan   (09-10-2014)

If you could download data-xml.zip then replace the existing data.xml with the data.xml that's inside data-xml.zip

alok   (09-10-2014)

Thanks a lot for stand alone app.Can you increase the size of the applet or make it screen adaptable. Would you mind sharing the source code ?? Just eager to know how you have developed this

comment

Lagnajeet Pradhan   (09-10-2014)

I didn't want to make it bigger in size as when I appeared my GRE the size was almost what I have done here. Also changing the size will change the line numbers so different people will have different line numbers pointing to the same place in the paragraph. And for the source. It's already shared through github. Follow the github links to access the source.

The data.xml file downloaded from tinyurl is not opening. The error message says that the file is corrupted or broken. Kindly help.

comment

lagnajeet pradhan   (09-09-2014)

But why do you want to open it? There is no need for that. Just replace it with the existing data.xml with the downloaded one. It should work fine.
