What drills/prep have you guys found most effective for RC? The best I've ever done is -7. I PT'd tonight for the third time and got a 164 (-3 LG, -4 LR1, -3 LR2, and -10 RC.) I actually missed six of seven on the last passage. I'm shooting for the 170's (like most people, I guess) and feel like if I can get there if I can get RC down, but how the heck does this even happen? Have people progressed out of such states of crappiness?
I wish I knew how to get RC done. It seems that those people who are good at this section are just good naturally. I've always hated reading sections (my lowest on the SAT, too). So I definitely need an answer to this question, too.
The best advice I've heard was just to have a strategy and stick with it. I divide the passage into sections and summarize on the side (key words and such) and circle key actors ("some scholars" or "the Lemon study").
What LR question uses the "negate" strategy?
