On any given property Q, I can waste a solid 2 min just staring, sketching, thinking, etc. and then still get it totally wrong. Whereas, for the other subjects, a bit of extra time often leads me to realize the nuances and tricks.
I almost wants to just skip the property Q's as I go along, saving them all for the end. That way, I can dedicate more time to the Q's I have a much better chance of getting right. I likely won't be pressed for time. On Barbri simulated MBE, had over 20 min left on each half. On real thing, with its shorter fact patterns, I'd expect I can finish even faster. Any opinions on saving my weakest subject for last? Bad approach?
That may work, of course you'd be running a HUGE risk with bubbling wrong. The lady on the SFE lectures suggested that if you hit a question that you don't know, bubble in a random answer, mark down the question number on a scrap piece of paper and go back to it at the end if you have time. That would probably be your safer bet if that is the route you choose to go. Hit a property question, bubble in A (and probably make sure you bubble in the same letter for every property Q just in case you can't get back to it...you're chances of getting a few of them right if you don't have time to get to them is greater than if you just randomly picked a bubble).
I ended up bubbling wrong the first time on my LSAT during the reading comprehension section. Didn't realize it until I had answered another 10-15 questions. Needless to say, I screwed up the first time i took the LSAT.
