I recently subscribed and mostly see political articles.

Any other reading materials besides Biden, Trump, and Coronavrius?

    Science and technology section is good.

    I usually read Leaders and Briefings. I'm Chinese, so I also read the Asia and China sections, especially Chaguan, the columnist for China. I also glance over United States and Middle East just because these are my areas of focus as an IR major. Finally, I will read whatever I find interesting in the Business and Finance sections.

    Bartleby is my favorite "fun" column

    I schedule an hour of reading each day, I mainly read the science and tech. I also read finance ones because I know in real life I am not the best at this area so I pick to focus on it. But there are so many interesting articles. I would say they all would help. Now, the ones about the COVID vaccine are actually pretty interesting and remind me so much about something that would appear in the LSAT.

    Ah also, there is a three month subscription online for less than $20 bucks I believe if you are a student, I bought it so I could have access on my ipad but I know you can also get copies in the library.

    Science and technology. I like reading articles that I have 0 clue prior knowledge about because that is the vast majority of LSAT reading comp passages.

    Leaders is great in terms of length, each article usually takes around 3 to 3.5 min which is a typical RC passage
    By Invitation are longer opinion pieces, good for practicing structure and memory recall
    Prospero is good for having more exposure to arts, culture, books, of course Books & Arts too
    1843 Magazine also has lengthier articles like By Invitation but I like how the topics are eclectic, it's kind of its own "fun" section
