Social Science and Law sections

Hi, I'm consistently having problems with the Social Science and Law sections in the reading comprehension sections. I score almost perfect on my Humanities and Natural Science sections, but I can't seem to get more than 2 or 3 right within the two other areas. I was hoping there was some kind of strategy or method of thinking that I could try and incorporate that would help me within Social Science and Law.
If anyone has any good tips that would be awesome.

    @lmekahel Darn I'm jealous and wish I could score almost perfect on Humanities and Natural sciences ;)

    Do you think you have done more of the Humanities/Natural science sections? It could be that you just need to practice with those sections... I don't necessarily think there is anything different I do with different passages as far as my attack strategy. However, I do notice much more speed and confidence with anything with History/Economics because that is what I am studying.

    Otherwise, do you feel like it is more challenging to stay engaged/interested in the subjects your having a bit of trouble with? I know overtime I get an Art passage I end up dropping the ball because it is so boring to me.

    @"Alex Divine" I haven't really targeted certain sections within the Reading Comp. I usually do a full section and analyze afterwards my work. I seemed to notice that I was doing consistently well in Natural Science and Humanities rather than the other topics. Whether I was doing them first or last it didn't matter, I seemed to grasp the point of the passage way more. The level of difficulty didn't affect it too much either. If I'm reading a Social Science or Law passage whether its 1star or 4 I still get it wrong. I just can't seem to understand the point of the passage or why certain examples are use to prove a point for Social Science and Law.
    It's pretty ironic that I can't seem to get those sections...
