You may want to look at the list of passages that Swete recommends for the
student to study differences between the MT and LXX texts. He provides
these on pages 442-446 in "Introduction to the OT in Greek." This is
on-line at both the TC ebind and CCEL projects.
He follows the list with some recommendations on methodology as well.
