Retaking a 166 and looking for 170+ in December

Postby zephyr36 » Tue Nov 09, 2010 2:35 am

Any tips to help studying? My time to study is significantly lower than it was for October with a full class load and work. My Oct breakdown went like this: LG -4, RC -4, LR -4, -5.

I usually could get -0/-1 on LG, but I would start tripping up on newer games, so I know I need to perfect that aspect. -4 RC was slightly below my average of -5/-6.

Any tips to get RC a bit lower and get LR to perhaps around -2/-3 a piece?

drill sections until you're going -0 - 1 on LR. the LR on the oct. test were a little strange, so review each question you missed (maybe print out the PDFs and look at them frequently)

I retook a 165 and got a (disappointing) 170. My first breakdown was something like this: LG (-0), LR (-4,-3), and RC (-11; misbubbling cost me 4 of them though). This time, I went something like: LG (-5), RC (-3), LR (-2, -1). I would make sure you keep practicing new games, because my drop was disappointing...i never miss games but I just couldn't get the inferences in Oct (aced the experimental though haha). My big recommendation for RC is slow-the-hell-down. I started out pretty strong with them, but couldn't finish, so I started rushing and normally missed 5-7. This time around, I just took it calm, absorbed the info as I read, and finished with 3 minutes left...go figure. Also recommend practicing with shorter time constraints like the above poster mentioned.

(My PT averages we about 173)
