QUALITY VS. quantity

Postby accuratesite2020 » Mon May 09, 2011 2:41 am

I am currently entrenched deep in Lesson 8 in Powerscore course. I am staying up with homework and its really ramping up, especially working in 3-4 PTs a week. I find myself getting frustrated because I want to keep working on past questions, (Traciela, etc) but I keep getting bogged down with new homework and test review. I can still manage to get a daily dose of Logic Games in, but sometimes I am shot out trying to work in a bunch of extra LR after 6 or so hours of deep work. Should I just relax? I feel and hope that the quality review I do on question practice and PT practice will pay off. It has already gotten me up 20 points from my diag. I just need to stay the course w/powerscore. Any people in PS can add to this and let me know if they feel the same. I mean 28 days and I am feeling pressure that I am not doing enough qs. Thanks.

If what you're doing now is creating satisfactory improvement, stick with it. If you're feeling burnt out or like you're not improving enough it might be time for a reevaluation. Could you talk with your instructor about doing less general hw and instead focusing on your weak areas?

Eugenie brings up a great point. It's more about improving in areas where you are weak than just maxing out on questions. You should dedicate more time/energy to practicing in areas that you still find confusing or don't have a complete grasp on. Tailor the PS course to your own individual needs and don't worry about just completing the homework.
