7 in 7 etc.. drills.

Postby lolol10 » Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:40 am

what killed me on the last exam was timing. im doing this thing where i do 7 LR problems in 7 mins. then build on it 14 in 16 etc to improve my time management. does this sound like a viable strategy? i also do the 33min drills.

I did first 10 LR in in 10 minutes. You should also eventually aim for all your sections in 30 min to help simulate test day jitters. For LG, you might try drilling games one by one until you can do each one in 8 min or under.

I usually shoot for 15 in 15 and find it to be manageable. If they sneak in a parallel question in the first 15 I often save it for last though.

I like this. This would give two minutes a question for the tougher ones. However, I didn't think the first 15 were easy - I thought it was only the first 10.

I go for 15 in 17min, and I'll usually finish with 3/4 min left.

looking at the superprep, the first 10 are on average fairly easy, but 2 of them are very difficult. By the time you get past 10, it becomes mixed, but skewed toward the harder stuff.
