Prepping for retake when you already exaushted materials?

Postby MichelFoucault » Tue Jan 19, 2010 6:26 pm

Has anyone successfully retook after an exhaustive first preparation? I am wondering if I should repurchase tests and reread LR Bible?

I did both of that and re-did the LG bible too raised my score 6 points. I only took 2 brand new tests the second time. Review hardcore, and I'd recommend giving yourself less than 35 minutes on sections you have already seen. Hopefully there's been a decent amount of time between when you looked at the tests previously and when you'll look at them again.

Good luck

yeah just re-read the bibles and do the prep tests that you started your studying with (the ones that you did the longest time ago)...chances are that you will benefit from them greatly assuming you arent this guy- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Peek - and dont have a photogrpahic memory

I took a course, took the test, canceled, got back on the horse several months after that. I had done all the homework during the course, so I had basically seen all the questions before. I ended up doing really well when I finally retook. I certainly think you can continue to improve/sharpen your skills by going through the materials again. In this process, it is even more vital that you don't try to just remember the answers from before. You have to stay focused to really work through all the problems. Even if you remember the answers, you should be identifying precisely why the AC is correct and why the incorrect answers are wrong. That is the only way you will continue to improve. About the hardest thing though, imo, was trying to realistically assess my score range. I had a wide range of very high PT scores, but I didn't have the same level of comfort because I knew I had already worked through some of the most difficult problems of any given PT.
