Question about re-taking old Preptests

Postby nycparalegal » Fri Apr 23, 2010 11:26 am

How do you grade the answers you remember on old preptests? Is that an automatic wrong for you or automatic right?

I was thinking of just marking it as if I got it wrong.

You shouldn't look at the final scores of repeat PT's as representative in any way...this will throw off your expectations for the real thing.

Have you used up EVERY single PT?

Don't repeat before you buy new ones and do them. And of course you should have a significant improvement if it's a repeat, lol.

I dont think there is much value in redoing old tests if youre intending to take them timed like any other test to see what score you would get.
You could however take it easy on them and just study the individual questions untimed. While there will be questions that you may remember, there is a good chance there will be some you have completely forgotten. With that in mind, I think the best use of such tests would be reinforcing the accuracy rather than getting completely bogus scores due to some biased speculations.
