Reading Comprehension is 50% Psychology
Ok, I had to post this when I saw David's post by the same name. He is an LSAT teacher and this suggestion supposedly comes from experience so I'll take it as being valuable. Worth a try although I'm SURE hubby will get a chuckle out of it. David's suggestion is that the reason people have so much trouble with reading comprehension is because they find the passages boring. He suggests taking passages to the bathroom with you as anything is more interesting than just sitting there, because your mind is bored. David says that he has had several hundred students try this approach with good results. We'll see if it works for me. I agree, what have I got to lose?
