Book recommendations to improve RC, speeding & accuracy?

I'm looking for something I can pick up and read on my daily commutes. Any good suggestions? Thanks!

Why not just some RC passages on the commute?

If you really want to read something non-LSAT, then I would suggest The Economist and The New Yorker magazines. I would say non-fiction is much better than fiction since that's what your passages will be.

However, if you want just a good break from the LSAT world read Catch-22. It is an amazing book chock-full of logical paradoxes and hilarious/complex writing. Study hard for the LSAT but keep your mind active and read that book on the side. Anything from David Foster Wallace is really complex and rewarding too.

I agree. Stick to RC passages. But the WSJ is a pretty good read, and it is even kinda interesting.

First and foremost, LSAT RC passages. If you want more, the Philosopher's Magazine is really good and has some articles that are similar in structure to RC passages. It's hard to find but some Barnes and Noble stores have it or you can get it online.

If you want a strategy guide, go with Manhattan.
