RC review went pretty well. I remembered surprisingly little of the passages, and at no point did I recognize an answer as correct without actually thinking it through. So maybe this is improvement. (Or maybe I'm actually remembering things without being conscious of it.)

I picked my ten favorite and ten least favorite RC passages. The former list was definitely harder to come up with.
Top ten favorite passages
1. Bettelheim's Freudian reading of fairy tales: probably the easiest passage ever. The other Bettelheim passage nearly made my LEAST favorite list.
2. Dutch tulip market
3. women doctors in the Middle Ages
4. embryo polarity
5. Chinese Talk-Story (haters gonna hate. I enjoy tough passages that I do well in because they make me feel good about myself)
6. strategic Thurgood Marshall
7. Hippocratic oath
8. birds' status signaling
10. Miles Davis (I love jazz passages, I used to play jazz)
Honorable mention: Native American tribal recognition, women's memoirs of the French Revolution, Harriet Jacobs's slave narrative, reasons against using the GNP, benefits of drinking wine
Top ten least favorite passages
1. Puerto Rican code-switching! Worst passage EVER.
2. historical sociology. Fuck this shit.
3. Denise Meyerson vs. Critical Legal Studies. Totally turned me off Columbia Law School.
4. Lamarckian evolution
5. medieval canon lawyers
7. Bentham's nonexclusion principle
8. multicultural education
9. four theories of species diversity
10. faculty patenting (in the same section as code-switching!)
Dishonorable mention: gray marketing, Lichtenstein and pop art, controlled burning of forests, compulsory national service, nerve growth factor
