Question from a student:
I’m taking the LSAT this Saturday, so I’m not sure how much I can improve by then. I’ve been taking a diag every day for this last week and I’m getting perfect games and missing 5-8 for both sections of LR combined.
My worst section is reading comp, and I’ve tried everything (focusing on 3 passages and throwing out/guessing on the last one, disregarding content and outlining structure, marking up the passage/minimal notations, reading the questions first… everything!) and I’m still missing 10-15. For half the answers that I’m missing, it’s usually a 50/50 answer, where I’ve narrowed it down to two, and always always always pick the wrong one! Even when I understand the passage and feel confident about picking the correct answers, I end up missing a good portion of this section.
I read “Cheating the LSAT” for October 2010 and the way you approach RC questions makes it seem second nature, and that’s something that I just can’t seem to get down.
Do you have any tips on how I can improve on reading comp this Saturday? Any help would be much appreciated!
