Noodles, this is beautiful and exactly what I was hoping for.
I have a question about drilling LR. What did the process look like for you? Did you burn through questions or take your time with them? Is it quantity, quality, or some combination of the two that maximizes the proficiency and efficiency one builds through extensive drilling? I've been struggling with finding the appropriate balance for a while.
Found this from you a while back:

Note: This isn't all drilling, but a good sized chunk (maybe 1/3rd of your drilling using this method).
For LR: In a notebook, write down why you're eliminating each answer. Out of scope, term shifts, etc. If you're down to two answers, don't look for the right one, look for the wrong one. Break each word apart, and be precise. This will get you thinking of answer choices in that manner, which will translate well to drilling.
For RC: RC is tough to improve, but it's not impossible. You have to train yourself to read critically. For each answer, make a note of where in the passage you get your justification. Why did you choose D? Lines 8-10, of course! If you can't find justification in the passage, then why are you choosing the answer? It takes awhile, but it can be worth it. Another little addendum though... some RC sections are tricky, so you may think there is justification when there isn't. It's not foolproof, but it certainly will help.
Still your recommendation? Any elaboration?
