For LR I do all drilling untimed. Spend as much time as you need for each question. Make sure you are 100% sure you have TCR, and 100% sure that the other 4 ACs are wrong. Doing this will help you really understand each question type's patterns and will develop your approach to each question type. I also write out little explanations for questions on a separate legal pad.
For RC I recommend doing bulk untimed sessions. Do 15-20 passages in a sitting. Work on a notation system that works for you and pay close attention to the structure of each passage.
The only issue I have with that is that I'm not yet 100% sure on the LR patterns in questions. So I might need to supplement my drilling with some type of better reading material (LR bible didn't do it for me)...I am waiting on my Manhattan LR to be delivered but I'm wondering if I can do both the reading and drilling at the same time or if I should wait on the drilling until after I'm well-versed. I don't want to waste the fresh questions ya know?
