Letter of the Day or Random Guess When Out of Time

Postby iclaw » Wed Jun 09, 2010 12:29 am

I also had a lot of problems in the games section and was forced to fill in the bubbles on several questions because I ran out of time.

I did the letter of the day approach but now I am freaking out that I should of just randomly guess different letters.

Does everyone use a letter of the day approach or randomly fill in bubbles?

I refuse to conform to statistics. Scatter guessing, artistic approach. It has worked out better and I enjoy. Few PT's on LG where I scatted got 3 correct. Just feels so GOOD sometimes. plus when I get stressed I enjoy taking a moment to let the creative side out. analyze the bubble pattern, laugh at myself and act accordingly.

Sometimes when you are in a very logical situation/environment it is good to flip it and run in the opposite direction. keeps you balanced. One of those I wouldn't suggest it, but it feels so damn good to have fun.

On the last game I was trying to answer questions by setting up hypos and figuring out which ones could be true and stuff. I was really nervous and panicy so my hypos summed up to little more than staight up guessing. In retrospect I wish I just bubbled in a single letter for the last six. At least then I could have a degree of certainty that I got atleast 1 or 2 correct, but right now I fear that I missed all 6. *Gulp*

Statistically speaking, guessing "D" will afford you a somewhat better chance of answering correctly the question(s) you didn't get a chance to complete.
