you can get 2 practice passages from LSAC, one is in the practice test.
It gives you an idea what kind of questions they ask, but really I don't think you need much extra studying for the new RC, just try to save enough time for the comparative passages.

I looked over the sample from the LSAC the morning of the test. lol.

The new RC style, IMO, is easier. Its all the same basic stuff (Main Point, Tone, etc) with a few questions like "Which issue is addressed by passage A but not passage B?" You're fine just practicing the old RC type.

Pretty much everything that's not covered by the old RC setup is covered by the old Args section...  you know where they would have short passages with opposing views and would ask "what would both authors agree on?"  And things like that.
