Well I think the consensus was Kaplan is better than PR if you HAD to choose. Ive heard horrid things about both but have talked to students who took one of the two and the general feedback is Kaplan has less negatives.

Yes, it does happen to some people, just not to the people that achieve high scores. I did not call the issue stupid. I believe I addressed a question of yours and the response of another person rather well. You may benefit by re-reading the correspondence in the thread carefully, especially your OP.What, Cliff, you don't occasionally gloss over key points of a stimulus in the middle of a test?No. That would be pretty stupid to do on game day. Almost as stupid as looking around for butterflies in the air over the field when you are the quarterback in the Superbowl and your team is down by 3 and it's 4th down and 1 yard to go after the 2 minute warning in the 4th quarter with the play clock ticking.
Cliff, it DOES happen to some people. Others, like me, probably wouldnt appreciate calling this issue "stupid." I'm going to please ask you to refrain from posting in my thread again.
If you have an issue reading, focusing, concentrating, and comprehending text under pressure you certainly need to get to the bottom of that right away in order to pursue LS and beyond. If you are going to pose serious questions and serious issues on a publicly available anonymous discussion board looking for advice from strangers you should not expect to only get sugar coated YOU CAN DO IT EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE responses.
And NO you do not own the thread and I will not be censored and hold back my opinions. If you do not like the information discard or ignore it or don't ask questions. You are in charge of you and your decisions.
Sorry that reality is sometimes harsh. Get used to it and cherish the good moments.
Good Luck working out your issue.

This actually happened to me too during the test this past Saturday where I would read but didn't know what I was reading...and I honestly felt horrible after the test. It wasn't until the third section that I started to maybe comprehend what I was reading. I think it's a mix of nerves/stress (my heart was racing a mile a minute) and also I am not a fast reader to begin with so maybe both of those combined for the best of us. For people like us, all I can say is don't give up. I've wanted to go to law school since high school and I felt like poo (and still do) after this test. I will most likely take it again in Dec. too. Hang in there...
This happened to me too, during practice tests. I think it is not so much a stress problem as becoming better at actively reading, especially when you are a somewhat lazy reader like me that is used to "skipping over" what doesn't make sense until you get to a part that you do understand and then using context clues to get the hard bit. With LR, you don't always get to a part that is "easy to understand." SO, my eyes would "skip over" the whole damn thing...i.e. "glaze over." I found I had to practice slowly, then build up to my normal fast reading. I assume you are re-taking in December...plenty of time to work up towards 30-minute LR sections.
