Maybe you've capped?  That's not a fun answer, so let's consider alternatives. Perhaps there are small things that you can change. RC seems to be your Achille's hell. I think that one thing to remember is that they are all basically Must Be True questions. Treat them like that.

yeah RC is def. a killer.

I'm going to review ALL the LR questions i got wrong so far tonight and sunday. 

Good thing is after all those PTs, when i did the 5 section test, fatigue didnt set in.

I'm praying to God that the actual lsat for me would me LG/LR/LG break LR/RC - this was how my June 09 was.

and how do you review incorrect RC questions? Is that even possible?

I guess that I just read the passage over again (slower) to really get to the nitty gritty.  My October test had two RCs (first and third).  And I did okay still :)

I've definitely seen improvements by not marking up the RC section.  The more I try to underline and write little notes - it not only slows me down - but I lose a bit of focus and lose some focus.  By just trying to read it quickly, only marking what "the critics say" and a few items which I think will appear as questions later, my score has gone up a lot.

Advice: If you think that you did horribly on your first section, don't psyche yourself out. It's likely that that section is the experimental section.  Keep on studying, everyone!

LoL @ Earlcat

It's unfortunate to prep while in school. Ugh, impossible for me to do 5 sections in the morning before class. Like today, I only got 3 done and I started at 8:20 am. So i've been taking last one or two sections after classes.  Maybe that will be beneficial (?) since I'm taking the last sections after being totally worn out after classes??

It would be best to do them all at the same time, or at least four at the same time (with break).  But I don't think that you'll in any way be totally disadvantaged by the way you are doing it now.
