LSAT related question: when you guys do an RC passage, how much notating do you do? I've been experimenting with no notation to a lot of notation, and I don't really notice a difference between the two. What does everyone else do?

I'm old too, so it's all good (2009) :)

Alright! Older applicants unite! I've been working in a non-profit for a few years. Looking to move up the income ladder 8)

Find a nice middle-ground.
Think of it like highlighting. Highlighting nothing is the same as highlighting everything.

What do you do, Dirigo? You must have some good advice from hanging out with the waiters 8)

For example, these are the only things I noted in a recent passage:
earliest known examples of representational art
Aurignacians
secure life
high level of quality suggests that Aurignacian art was created by distinct group of artists
Curiously
unlikely that these representational cave paintings arose simply out of a love of beauty or pride in artistry
also intended to provide a means of steady supply of food
gain power over animal by making an image of it
grant magical power
also evidence that ceremonies of some sort were performed before these images

Do you underline to notate? I've been developing a system of asterisks, underlines and exclamation points.

Finished PT 44 about 30 minutes ago... That was kinda rough- I usually feel better about the LR. For RC, I used the previously mentioned strategy of looking at the all the passages and picking out the boring ones and doing those first LOL I kept the interesting ones for last so I can speed through it if needed. I haven't blind reviewed yet or scored it so we shall see how it goes.!

I spoke to a former Kaplan instructor and he told me to "read as fast as possible" and "don't notate." I guess it depends on the person but I used his method and I didn't do as well as when I notate things.

From what I understand, Kaplan is a notoriously bad prep company.

Bolded items I circled. Underlined items I underlined.
Sometimes I write a few words next to a section.
I'm still developing a process that works for me though, so don't hold what I do as superior.

I've been going anywhere from -3/-6 per section. Looking to get that down to -0 by the test date so I can get a 180 with you, Dirigo 8)

I don't use Kaplan's strategies lol. I just spoke to the guy because he was on my campus. I don;t agree with his method though I do believe that notation is essential.
