I have been going through the LSAT RC section in the 1000RC document since they are supposed to be harder and good practice as well. But am surprised to find that they are not as hard as people are making them out to be.

To put things in perspective, take a look at this http://www.west.net/~stewart/lsat/ql_read.htm#Q1 . Almost every line of this is a pain. When people say they went through LSAT RC, are they really referring to stuff such as these ?

Hi,

I took the GMAT yesterday and had a horrible experience with RCs. All fours passages were very very tough and time consuming. In fact, onc of the RC had the same question format as given in the LSAT RC link you provided . I think it's better to be safe than sorry and i'll definitely try my hands with LSAT stuff before my GMAT retake.

LSAT RC works like this:

2 easy passages
1 medium passage (often two passages comparison/contrast)
1 insanely difficult passage


Every LSAT it's the same way, the difficult passage is typically where most people get mistakes. It separates 95th percentile people from 99th percentile.

i.e. search google for "LSAT chinese oral story"

Imho.

As someone who is studying for the LSAT as well as the GMAT, I would recommend skipping the 1000 RC because it sounds like the sources of the material are very sketchy. Get a good LSAT book that uses real RC passages instead. Kaplan LSAT Mastery Practice does this and so does the Grouped by Passage Type book. Use the MGMAT RC book for instruction on how to read the passages and then practice with these books once you have used up the OG material.
