Thanks LSATHell. I'm familiar with those things, I've done both the Bibles, Testmasters weekend course, and Super Prep and probably about 10 prep tests so I know how to recognize those things, but as you say, you know them inside and out. My biggest problem, which I'm working to overcome with pure prephrasing, is that I get bogged down between 2 potential answer choices or else I miss a crucial word ie civilization v. culture, and pick a shell game answer. Sometimes it seems the LSAT is insanely picky about the tiniest details, and then other times, I rule out an answer based on what I perceive to be a slight inaccuracy and it turns out to be the correct answer. This is where I think doing a lot of prep tests would probably help as you get a feel for what the LSAT makers perceive to be an irrelevant tiny detail and an important tiny detail. As for RC, whatever. I'm annoyed that I don't do better on that section consider on my ACTs I got a perfect score in that area, but of course, that's comparing a granny smith apple to a red delicious. If you don't mind my asking - how many were you originally getting wrong with LR before you were able to whittle down to -1?
