you're only missing 11 RC at the most and you arent getting 165? That doesnt sound right. Like, you're looking at 170-172 almost every test with -11. Even if you missed, say -11 RC, 4 LR, and 2 LG, you're still looking at above 165 in all likelihood.

No, by near perfect, I mean i missing about 3-4 on average for the logic games, and 6-7 on the analytical reasoning. So I guess near perfect is a misnomer

Well, the other sections are very learnable, and until you're getting 0 or 1, I wouldnt really say you were near perfect on anything. Most of the people here study LG until they're 0 every single time without question. So, you can get 3 easy points from LG alone. LG is extremely learnable, and I'm confident you can actually achieve perfection in this category.

For RC, the most common study tip will be to just keep doing sections over and over and over and over. Everyone notates differently in RC. Some people read the passage in 4 minutes, some in 2. Figure out what works for you, and do it every single day. Then, go over the ones you missed and see if you misinterpreted the passage or if you just confused the question.

Logic games ARE analytical reasoning. You mean Logical Reasoning.

Now comes my productive advice. The Reading Comp bible is terrible. Order the Manhattan LSAT Reading Comp Guide. Not just any guide, but that specific guide. It's short and sweet and the best book this instructor has seen on RC.
