Reading Comp. makes me want to shoot my self in the face...

Postby svarne2 » Tue Oct 05, 2010 3:45 am

Last week I was beasting practice tests left and right. I am the straight up master of games and arguments are my bitch but for some reason RC is my Kryptonite. I'm taking the Oct.9th LSAT... Any advice on how to approach RCin the next few days. I'm really open to ANY suggestions right now.

Slow down and read more carefully - skipping detail will not work in the 50s. Also, go through answer choices slowly and reference the passage every single time to make sure the answer is confirmed.

I used to read the passage in 3 minutes and spend time on qs but more convoluted passages made me slow down my reading. Although I do understand the passages better when I have 4-5 mins to read, answer choices that are really similar/tricky mean that I have to dissect the passage (and answer choices all over again). SIGH.

I think today I will try to do some passages in the 50s while reading sort of fast again. Just noting structure, mp, tone and where certain info is in the passage and reference the passage extensively for questions...
