The result of the study showed that using mind mapping technique is effective in teaching reading comprehension of narrative text The gained score of the experimental class (28.46) is higher than the controlled class (21.34). from the result of statistic calculation, it is obtained that the value of t-observation (to) is 2.39 and the degree of freedom (df) is 50. In the table of significance 5%, the value of degree of significance is 2.00. comparing those values, the result is 2.39 > 2.00 which means t-observation (to) score is higher than t-table (tt) score.
