Since LG is the easiest to improve on and RC is the hardest, I would guess that people who actually study for the test miss would typically miss more on RC.

I tend to miss -7 combined on both LR (unless I have a brain fart and screw up big time) and miss the same amount on the one RC. My LR is significantly improved from before but my RC stays the same. I'd say RC is the worst offender for the prepared test taker.

If it's someone freshly starting their LSAT prep, then it's LR or LG.

Totally agree, even my average misses on these two sections parallel yours. It's much easier to prepare for LG and LR than it is to prepare for RC. That being said, people who are typically great at RC have a huge advantage on the LSAT. I've known some people who started studying with LG being their worst section by far, and by the end of their practice, LG became the easiest for them! I wish I could have seen that kind of improvement in RC, but I guess that's life.

I think it's typical that LR accounts for more misses due to the amount of question types and the fact that it's 2 sections versus 1 making it harder to study for, whereas it seems that there is little variation in RC despite constant drilling, and it all seems to depend on how much focus you can bring to reading/understanding a passage and interpreting the questions & answers keeping the quirks of the test makers in mind. LG seems to be the easiest to improve and this is usually where you see the most profit from time invested in studying. I think the general strategy is: master the LG & then LR - those two combined should get you in the low 170s, and are the easiest to address deficiencies in to minimize lost points.
