Yeah, in response to you and Rand, I think the key really is being able to tear through a passage without being afraid not to understand details.
I can get through a passage in 2:00 - 2:30, and that gives me plenty of time to mark up where the details are and understand generally what each paragraph is saying. Then, I'll have plenty of time to fill in the gaps if needed. Let me emphasize as well that I am normally not a fast reader... I just know what the LSAT seems to require, and it's been a while since I've gotten more than -1 on a RC passage. Now to just master LG...
I never tried Voyager, but I do agree with you. I think the Memory Method is worthwhile on old passages though as a way to simply increase your reading comprehension (the skill not the section).
For me, the real click in going from -5/-6 to -1/-2 was to stop trying to rely on my memory for details. Reading too closely made me think I remembered details which were actually slightly off... by not relying on my memory, my score improved. I do think that trying the memory method for some passages though did help my general reading ability... perhaps it helped me memorize structures... not sure.
Whats the memory method
