Please explain your method with The Economist.
Step 1: Literally read everything. Just become comfortable with the format, word choice, grammar, etc. The articles are structurally very similar to LSAT passages, vocab level is on par, yada yada.
Step 2: After you're familiar with RC questions, start reading Economist passages as if they were LSAT passages. Identify the main point of the passage. What would the author most likely agree with? What is the author's attitude towards the subject? What inferences can be reasonably made from this article? What kind of arguments would this article support?
Essentially, you're drilling RC in a stress-free environment. You're building familiarity. Imagine it like working on a shot in basketball. Just do it billions of times, check your form, and your accuracy will go up. It's another way of drilling RC without burning through PTs, and you can do it on your phone on the commute to work or while taking a shit. You're shooting (huehuehue) for immersion.
