So what exactly is "Comparative Reading"?

Postby Underdog180 » Wed May 18, 2011 12:54 am

I've been doing practice tests that are under the 2007 mark. Supposedly that is the year that they implemented the comparative reading. I'm about to start practicing the newer tests now, so what am I exactly doing with the comparative reading section? What is the difference? Is there anything I need to adjust compared to previous old tests?

they have two smaller passages, instead of one long one. you'll figure it out.

Some of the questions will ask about criterion concerning both passages...

"which one of the following can be found in passage A but not passage B?"

"What is the logical relationship between passage A and Passage B?"

"The authors of Passage A and Passage B would be most likely to agree/disagree over..."

thats about it I think

The comparative reading questions are by far the easiest on the LSAT. I didn’t take any practice tests that included them and I got them all correct on the real deal.

Yes, I do believe that's what I said. I got some questions wrong in Logic Games. They're probably harder. What I meant was that I don't think the comparative reading questions are anything in particular to worry about.
