how to raise LR score

Postby etshin » Tue Aug 03, 2010 2:50 am

I am currently taking a TM course and doing homework but when it comes to a practice test, I don't know what to do. Do you guys have any suggestions on improving on LR?

One quick thing is timing/pacing. Try and get the first 15 questions down in 20 minutes, leaving you the last 10 questions in 15 minutes or so. That's a good way to manage your time, going briskly on the earlier, easier ones and giving yourself more time on the more time-consuming later ones, especially the parallel reasoning.

Need the following info:

1.) How many are you typically missing in timed LR sections?
2.) How many do you miss in the homework (# out of every ten)?
3.) Do you often find yourself re-reading a stimulus over and over?

1) -1 to -3

2)About 1/20

3) Yes.This, along with mistakes, tend to happen more frequently after the Q12 mark, when I star to lose my focus.

Are you consistently missing the same type of answer?

It sounds like reading fatigue to me. You just have to get used to reading and answering all of those questions quickly and under timed circumstances.

My TM instructor advised that the best way to improve LR was to do as many LR problems CORRECTLY as you can within 35 minutes. No guessing allowed. Keep doing this until you have more reader's stamina.

1) I am missing around 10-12
2) 2-3 on homework
3) YES!! It's hard because it seems like I am not able to apply anything that I have learned into class onto my diagnostic tests!
thank you so much for your input thus far
