So I've been prepping for this Dec. 2nd LSAT and I'm quite pleased with how I am doing on the Logic games and Logical reasoning parts (3/4ths of the test). I average out around the same percentage right on both of these sections (so I'm doing consistently where I want to) and it projects out to the score that I would be elated to have.
However, I have been struggling with the reading comprehension section. Going through the 4 passages (26-8 questions) in the time allowed has been tricky for me. I feel especially rushed in the last reading if I take my time and analyze more prudently in the earlier passages.
On the average I take 3.5-4 minutes to read the passage out of the average 8.5 minutes per split (not just speed reading, but trying to absorb the content so I don't have to rehash so much as I am going through the passage) and thus I feel rushed going through the 5-7 questions involved.
I am trying to reduce my mistakes on the whole section by 3-4 problems (I have been struggling on it). Any tips for the RC? Any suggestions for absorbing/tackling the section?
I know its short notice (taking the test in 6 days) but anything small that might be able to help me shave off a mistake or two would do wonders for me
