Well, I've for the most part ditched Kaplan's strategy save a few points like recognizing the topic and purpose. None of this writing down anything BS. I've found using the highlighter feature is MORE than enough to annotate the passages. Mostly, this is because it allows me to read actively and aggressively. My verbal scores on the AAMCs have gone up around 3-5 points doing so. I also finish in *just* enough time. Now, the last one I took(AAMC 9) I made a 9 on. I *would* have done better(I was missing a question every other passage or so) until I came across this one about visual/tactile learning and I just dropped the ball on it, missing all the questions. But case in point is I've found something that keeps me from glazing over the passages and I can easily reference items if I need to.
