Question about Logical Reasoning

Postby testmachine45 » Fri Oct 08, 2010 4:17 am

I've taken 4 preptests.

My logical reasoning has been, in chronological order:

-10 (June 08, 160)

-3(June 09, 171)

-13(June 10, 160)

-11(Dec 09, 166)

Someone told me that with this many logical reasoning misses that there is something "more serious" going on. What does that mean?

Either you haven't correctly identified what problem types are giving you trouble or you have a stamina problem. In the alternative, it could be that you are just doing them in the wrong order. My suggestion is this: when doing the first 2-3 pages do not do the problems in order. Skip around from the easiest to the hardest, so you can build some momentum.

The secret to a good LR score is to get your first 15 questions correct...get on a roll. Try slowing it down a bit on the first few problems during practice exams, then speed up as you get better. On the real test, you should be doing the first 15 questions in 13-15 minutes and getting them all correct...that allows you to relax later in the section and finish with time to go back and double-check answers. If you understand the problems fairly well, you should be able to get 20-23 correct every time just by doing that.

Also, remember that certain problems (like parallel reasoning) don't appear that often. Once you're done with a problem, do not dwell on it.

Re-read your entire LR Bible, if you have one. If you haven't gone through the LR Bible, get it!
