Graeme Blake has a really quick rc lesson on the site, and it's pretty helpful. I think it's a very intuitive, and somewhat different method than others. The Method does include speed reading, but it incorporates more review and the result is the once you get to the questions you know the passage really well, and more importantly where the info is so you can quickly reference it. Basically you read a paragraph fast, then review it immediately. Just quickly think "this is the info introduced, and the role of the paragraph." Then move onto the next one and repeat, while trying to find how what you just read relates to the other passage. Rinse and repeat until the end, where you do a quick overview before questions.
The idea is that this works sort like duolingo, where you're introduced a new thing, then it's refreshed at intervals of 30 seconds and then 3 mins, and this is shown to improve retention. I like it because I find it it to be a bit more helpful than the memory method in helping me remember where things are in the passage.
Lsathacks.com is an amazing resource. I cannot stand the explanations on the Manhattan forums. Everyone wants to be diagramming every LR question instead of like 2x per exam. Graeme and the Fox LR Encyclopedia are A+
