There is no rational reason not to read all the answer choices before selecting one on questions you have time to attempt. Doing otherwise is stupid.
This type of habit may in part account for the more generous curves on the recent tests as compared to the strict curves of most of the 2005-2007 tests.
If you have time for a question, not reading all the answer choices before making a decision is dumb.
I get what was said about the LG section in terms of once you find what you know is correct (provided you analyzed the game scenario properly), look for it, select it and move on. If you processed the game info well and made the important deductions you can just scan the answer choices to find what you are looking for but you still have to read/scan them to find it.
Considering that someone in this thread scored a 180 without reading all the answer choices, don't you think it's a bit much to call it silly, stupid, and dumb?
180 scores are rare. 99.9th percentile. Small amounts of people pull them off each year. What about the rest of the crowd that takes the test that are trying to get into law school?
PS: I'm not disputing that the poster achieved a 180, but over the years, especially in discussion board land, I've heard tons of people make false score claims.
Just because it's not the best strategy for most people doesn't make it silly, dumb, and stupid. I would think that someone who went to law school would have realized that different people succeed using different strategies.
