Any good strategies in tackling RC?
« on: September 28, 2005, 10:52:12 AM »
Since the LSAT has increased the number of questions for the RC section, could all of you suggest any good strategies in this section?

ie: how to target main ideas, increase reading time, or just strategies in general.

Thank you for all your inputs!

Go for the legs.

You mean just skim through the passage and go for the ending?

I just took the June 05 exam, and although there are more RC questions, the passages didn't seem nearly as dense or confusing as some of the previous ones. The only difficult one was the last passage, about criminal law and preventing harm to others. That's not to say that Saturday's won't be incredibly confusing, but I'm less worried about RC after taking the June test.

. . . ;D  Does anyone else ever feel like none of the 'main point' questions' responses are that appealing?
