I received several CDs from a friend that...have seen better days. (He just had them all loose in a satchel, and it looks like some of them have food stains on the encoded side...)
Anyway, I'm trying to extract what I can via EAC. I'm not at all concerned with how long the extraction takes; I only want to get the best (i.e. most accurate) copy possible.

When you're dealing with badly damaged CDs, will you usually get a better (more accurate) copy in "High" error mode - causing EAC to reread the same sector up to 80 times - or in Burst Mode, or in some other mode? Does the answer depend on how badly damaged that particular track is, i.e. how many sectors can't be read, or on the "quality" rating (83.3%-100%) given by EAC in "High" error mode?
