Should I foucs only on Timing now???

Postby SFnative » Mon Nov 22, 2010 5:10 am

Well I have been studying a solid amount the last couple months, my goal score is 158-160, I know its not high but I think its enough for the school I want (Santa Clara).. but anyways, my concern is that when I do un-timed LR sections I can consistently get 19-22 right every time, and w/ LG I'm at -0, but when I time myself my LR score is between 15-17 while leaving 6 to guess and LG 17-19 w/ guessing on last 2-3 questions... So, will just doing timed sections over and over help me get faster and stay accurate???


any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated:

Can you do timed sections and still review at a slower pace? I would do that.

yeah, I think that is what I am going to do, I'm just scared that I only get through 20 questions on LR, I really wanna be able to get to all of them and not rely on guessing on the last 6..

If you`re gonna do Dec 2010 test, you need to.... your timed effort`ll be rewarded all the time... from now on.

from my experience, timing is the only thing that really matters in LG. I'd study with a focus on timing and come up with a strategy (if a question takes too long and seems to keep you from the next set of games, maybe its better off just guessing and moving on)

I'm going to study with less time than I have on the test since I'm sure nerves will make things worse on the actual day

dont over emphasize nerves on game day. They will be there, but if you prep long and effectively enough, you should have the confidence to overcome them. That being said, acknowledge the nerves, but dont focus on them.
