You guys have ruined me; I spent 4 hours last night setting up an XCell SS with like 15 worksheets. One thing I'm looking into is the types of RC and LR questions. Does anyone have a good list enumerating the types of questions? ie. Main purpose of passage; or Flawed argument. I made a list of my own, and it seems to be pointing me in a direction of a new plan of attack: where I would put a 2 initial moniker for the question in the margin then know which ones to redirect my focus and any extra time towards.
I used to do the LG sections for fun, before even thinking about taking the test, so I never really studied those. The LR sections I took other posters' advice on reading the question to identify what they were looking for before reading the short argument(s). The RC, psha, I only do well on science related passages, but I picked up the Economist and am reading that cover to cover 'cause ppl said it helps get you in the mindset. I'm unplugging my TV for the next 2 weeks (well except for the Sopranos finale).
Hrm... So I need to read books/mags/op-ed in the next 2 weeks. Somehow I think it's a lost cause. I think I need to rely on 100% LG to balance the scale. I guess there are some things an engineering undergrad degree prepares you for.
