Looks like in RC I probably went a little overboard on marking up passages, but that third passage was legitimately difficult in terms of overall read and questions. I found during review that actually drawing out what phenomenon that they were talking about helped me understand some of the answers more. Need to maybe slow down just a little on these PT60's reading as there seem to be way less "in the passage directly" questions that I was enjoying os much in the 40's and 50's.
Good thing I'm getting on this now, with a solid 4 weeks to get this settled. More and more its RC that's going to determine my score on game day.
General advice here is to decrease your reading time, possibly use less annotation to do this, and use this increased time to work on the more LR-like q's in the 60s. Lots of weird forms of inference q's come up, like choosing a workable title for passages, for example. There are also some difficult parallel reasoning-ish q's, or 'analogous situation' q's. Reading for structure still helps with most of RC, granted, but just make sure you're giving yourself enough time for these other q's.
That was the first thing i noticed in the 60s. I currently read at about a rate of 2 to 2:30 per passage. I think on the third passage where I got lucky on my guesses, I maybe rushed through the reading a little too much. In general I agree, I like having more time for the questions, but sometimes i sacrifice too much for the speed. Something I can definitely tweak though.
