Anyone : Kaplan Reading Comprehension Strategies - 2011

Has anyone tried going through - "Kaplan LSAT Reading Comprehension Strategies and Tactics".

Looks like a good resource for question types (on scanning the book preview in Amazon).

Kaplan sucks. Use something else.

What I love about our reading comp strategy is that we have one! Many resources only tell you to read the passage fast, and get to the questions.

As the book will explain, the testmaker is interested in rewarding you for the implicit info in the text--the why and how. By using keywords to track the rhetorical funcion of the sentences, you will learn that some sentences are much more important than others--much more central to the author's message. So, you will learn where to slow down and where you can speed up and what you should read for.
