I would like to hear it too!  ;D

Good thread, looking forward to hearing solid advice.  One thing that would help this thread out alot is to list the most common forms of questions that appear in the RC.  If anyone can do this that would be honorable :)


There are 6 types of RC questions.

1)  Main Point (like LRB's Main Point)
2)  Description (like LRB's Must Be True).

3)  Writing Technique
3a-  Compare and contrast 2 positions
3b-  Show cause and effect.
3c-  State a position and then give supporting evidence.

4)  Extension (like LRB's Assumption Q's)
5)  Application (like LRB's Justify the Conclusion Q's)
6)  Tone
