How to improve RC on LG

Postby niederbomb » Sun Nov 28, 2010 6:08 am

EDIT: The last 7 LG sections I've done were PT30, PT 31, PT 32, PT 33, June 2007, Superprep B, and Superprep C. 17-19 on all of them. Maybe these are exceptionally hard?

I was wondering why I rarely break the 19 barrier on LG. I usually make all the key inferences (when I look at Atlas explanations, etc). I've done hundreds of games. I've implemented the LG Bible and the Atlas guide for some game types.

Here's the problem: I have to constantly reread the rules, or I forget them. I have to read and reread the answer choices and the questions very slowly, or I make tons of errors. I rarely finish a game section in 35 minutes unless I've done it before and, consequently, remember some of the rules.

I don't seem to have a lot of problems with RC or LR (-1 is not unheard of for either). So why would reading comprehension kill me on LG? How to improve it?

Since I CAN get to 170 without the 4th game, should I just plan on doing 3 games, getting them all right, and focus all my energy on RC and LR during the next two weeks?

That's unlikely to happen. I've already taken the LSAT once. I've been studying for 3 months and haven't significantly improved on LG since finishing the LG Bible the first time.

But I HAVE improved a lot on LR and a little on RC, so I don't think my review strategy is flawed. I'm just an LG retard.
