I agree. I regressed today in LR but I think what I did was stupid, to say the least (didn't concentrate fully for one section, was very tired after work, got a -4 and preceded to do MORE sections instead of take a break, not concentrate very hard for half of them, follow it up with a couple more -4's)... I think I need to work on endurance and concentration and not rushing.
However, I do feel like I've had a major breakthrough in Reading Comprehension. It has become my favorite section, after a brief stint as my least favorite. A couple -1's and more -2's, am feeling good. Still hoping for a miraculous -0 somewhere. Thought I had it today, then realized I had one question wrong. That was sad.
I can relate to all of this. I think that I have temporary lapses in concentration every once in a while. I think it has something to do with testing with the clock in front of me. I keep looking at it. Whenever I do look at it, I think "18 minutes left. That's plenty" or "10 minutes left. Oh no!" This can be very distracting. From now in, I'm going to test with the clock turned the other way.
I'm using this program (linked below), so I don't have to worry about cutting myself off at the right time. This calls out '5 minutes' and 'pencils down'.
