Best Way to study for 165 --------> 170+

Postby seaguy2010 » Fri Dec 24, 2010 2:38 am

What are some tips you guys have for reviewing wrong answer types and mastering/recognizing weak areas? At this point I'm scoring fairly well but I want to boost up from the 92nd percentile. Thanks

Well if there is no pattern in the type of questions you are missing it is tough to say. Is there a certain section of the test that you struggle on?

To be honest with you, there just comes a time when everything just clicks (assuming you don't have trouble with one particular section). Take a few days off and come back to it, do a practice test and see how you do. When I kept studying every day I found myself over-thinking and over-analyzing every question and made careless errors that kept me out of 170+ territory. Also I'm a firm believer in re-writing PT's you've done before, sometimes a second round helps you see how you should approach certain questions.

Be tough on yourself. For wrong questions, don't let yourself say "oh, I see now, I get it" and just move on. Make sure you can explain to yourself why the answer you chose was 100% wrong, and what about it tricked you, and how you can avoid making that same mistake again. Also ask, why did you overlook the one beautiful and perfect answer choice?

Also do this for questions you get right, but had trouble with. Every question is a lesson, if you thought it was tricky, figure out exactly why, why you weren't able to spot the trick quickly and avoid it.
