skipping around in rc

Postby jdhopeful11 » Wed Jun 02, 2010 12:32 am

How do you guys feel about skipping potentially boring passages?? I find myself doing extraordinarily good when the passages interest me and extraordinarily bad when they don't...anyone else see a potential confidence booster if you do the more friendly looking passages first?

I skipped around but for a different reason. I'd scan the readings and did them in order of most questions to least questions. That way, if I got short on time, I was rushing the passage with the fewest questions (and thus limiting the damage). What I found was after going in this order, things seemed to go quicker and never really was pressed for time again. Cause/effect? Who knows, but my performance definitely improved.

Yep, I did.
