logical reasoning help

Postby Ineedhelpplease » Tue Sep 07, 2010 12:36 am

hey just wondering if i can get some helpful advice on my current situation. I just took preptest 55 got a 159. i was a -14 on logical reasoning, without looking at the answers I just did the ones I got wrong over and got them quick and annoyingly easy. it seems like i waste too much time in the beginning trying to go fast(miss a couple) reread, and by #18-19 im left with 6-7 minutes and i try to hurry up even faster(miss more). anybody got similar issues, any advice? :twisted:

Are they specific types? If not I would just slow down.

I'm working on my LR too...if you are rushing on the first questions and making stupid mistakes, then ultimately rushing on the latter questions as well you need to sacrifice speed for accuracy. Just find an equilibrium where you are comfortable with accuracy, then practice on the speed.

I think this is a pretty common piece of advise, but I always looked through the prompts for all four games and ordered them easiest to hardest. Don't spend more than a minute on this and stick with the order you choose (it's a waste of time to jump games).

We're talking about arguments ITT haha. But good advice for games at least.
