Lawboy - Yes, I went from 8-10 per LR section wrong to 1-3, but my reading did not improve by leaps and bounds either. Part of that is a lack of emphasis on this in the courses like powerscore I think. Best advice I ever got was that you better be able to cite a line number for the answer choice you pick. This is a good study tool, and eventually did not have to do it anymore. Went from -9 on reading to -3, but its a tough section to pull a -0 on.

I am sure there is better advice out there - as I sometimes miss these two. I basically just have to look at the choices and ask "do they really give me enough information to say this" I basically pretend I am making a recommendation based off the information in a passage. I need some sort of proof of every word in that answer from somewhere in the text. This can get a little abstract sometimes, and I still miss some..but thats my two cents.

I disagree with Gdog in some respects. The powerscore weekend class is nothing you can't get form both the LGB and LRB. I bought both and went from 155 average to upper 160's in about 200 hours of studying. Its a real commitment to score highly on this test, but it can be done. What you have to do is read those books and think about all of the questions from a step back. Pay attention to common correct and incorrect answer choices, you will see those all the time. The weekend class can reinforce these ideas (I took it) but if 350 bucks is a lot, then you can skip it.

I started with 2 Kaplan diagnostics both giving me a 155. Took a 3rd test on my own after a few weeks of studying, got a 157. Took Powerscore weekend course and stepped things into gear, never dropped below 160 again. My scores ranged from 160 (a couple of bad tests under bad conditions) to a few 167. That was probably the result of 200 hours studying. My average score was around 165-166 after that. My goal was 170, fell a little short; but think I MIGHT have a chance at it after last Saturday.
