How do you study if all PT's are exhusted?

Postby Philipsssssss » Thu Jun 10, 2010 11:31 am

I wouldn't say that all the PT's were done within 2 month, half of them are going back a year or more. I would say that PT 39-59 were done in the course of 4-6 month.

7-38 are a year or so old...

What is the best strategy to approach to study for the OCT test then?

My going avarage was mid-low 160's, occasional high 160's during the last month. I canceled JUNE 2010 because i bombed it.

How would you approach the study then?

Do the ones that you have had the most time away from working your way to the most recent PTs that you have done. Aim for 100% correctness and understand WHY you are missing the questions you are missing.

Just a cautionary tale to others besides the OP, but one should hardly ever go through ever PT before their first administration. There's much more effective ways to study than rushing through every practice test. Regardless, I would strongly suggest that one leave a few of every test section (the 10's 20's 30's, etc) available for later study. Definitely a wise thing to do...

Second this -- if you did all of them, you should by now understand what your weaknesses are and go back to them. NO WAY you remember them. Trust me, many sections will look brand new.

I read someone on here (I forget who, but he/she had made it from a 158 diagnostic to a 174 and then retook for a 179). Anyhow, their study plan was to do an exam timed and not grade it. Then they would write the exam untimed and see how well they did. I thought that sounded like a brilliant way to focus on improvement.

I was thinking, it may be even more helpful to have someone else mark it for you and then you have to find your errors.

ie: Let them tell you that you got 2 wrong on the first 10 LR questions and then you try to find them and correct them. Once I know the answer, my brain gets lazy.
