Its too damnably hard to try to learn a way to approach RC. Some of these books tell me to form an overall summary and then try to summarize each paragraph, I mean this would work if I had 2 hours, but I don't see how you can get through RC besides just making sure your concentration is high. I find my main problem is trying to keep awake with some of the passages, maybe I should go into the test on speed or soemthing.

this might sound f'd up, but am i the only one that believes that content knowledge of reading comprehension helps?  when topics arose of free trade, authoritarianism, and enviornmental issues i normally felt much more comfortable and performed better than wack-ass stuff like weird scientific theories.  in fact, there were even times studying that i was familiar with some of the arguements. 

either way, for me:

RC, LR, LG

Not really, I see some truth in it. When I read about scientific crap and some things about history I seem to catch on pretty fast. But some of those philosophical passages are a killer. All I have to say is I hope the experimental section in Oct isn't RC, I don't think I can handle two of those sections.

Hardest--Easiest
LG, LR, RC

It used to be LR, RC, and LG. Then I met preptests 22,23,24 and the games sections started ripping me a new one! I've discovered I can answer the questions, I just need double the time. grrrrrrrrrr!

I agree with Casino about familiar subject matter being the easiest. I think it's really mental though, because you don't need any information other than what's in the passage. However, every time I see a science passage I want to cry. I'm hoping there are no science passages in the Oct. RC.
I would love an RC Bible.
