Besides the strategies people use, what are the sources used as practice for the reading comprehension section?

Has anyone used the LSAT, GRE, ACT reading passages for practice?
I noticed topscore passages had too many Search and destroy types of questions. I'm looking for practice sources that is a mixture of both rather than one or the other. If anyone knows of any great practice sources, please share.

Kaplan's material/Achiever has a bunch of those questions.

However, personally when I took the DAT I found that the actual DAT RC section was extremely similar to topscore's - in that they asked a lot of detail oriented, direct questions. Having said that, I took the DAT about 7 months ago so it might have changed a little.. but I don't think they would have significantly increased the number of inference type questions in less than a year (in my opinion). ALSO, this doesn't mean that test didn't have ANY inference based questions.. they just had more of the specific kind!

Hope this helps and Good Luck!
