Speed vs Accuracy

Postby minnbills » Fri Nov 05, 2010 6:04 pm

I noticed that on a typical section, I'll finish between 5-8 minutes early. Yet, I'll still miss 3 to 4. If I slow things down in an effort to increase accuracy, the results stay the same.

Has anyone else experienced this?

This happened on the Oct. administration as well.

can you identify which questions you are going to get wrong?
if so, circle the ones you are not sure of. since you have a lot of time left, go back and brutally do poe on it ( for LR- find conc, premises, gaps, circle indicator words, tone changes, and quantity words. then compare each choice until you have the best one)

for games- double check your setups and clues.

for rc... use the time to relax your eyes, or if you havent positively found where in the passage the answer choice is for a question do so.

also; double and triple check your bubbling. You have plenty of time to correct an epic bubbling error

Usually there are one or two that I think were really sketchy, I do go back and check normally. But the thing is, I want to get to the point where I get nearly every question right the first time.


LG is the one section I tend to get pressed for time on. I usually finish with 1 or 2 mins to go. My biggest issue there is misinterpreting a rule or making some other facile error.

I'll put your advice to practice tomorrow- thanks.
