Last minute LR advice (scientific questions)

Postby Tainted_Praise » Fri Jun 03, 2011 6:12 pm

For the most part I'm where I want to be when it comes to LR... But that still doesn't change the fact that every single time I see a scientific type of question, or a question that involves numbers... My mind gets completely FLUSTERED... This is quite possibly because I have trained myself into thinking I suck at math and numbers... But the way I speed through LR so fast is by just imagining I'm reading a novel. And each question is a little snippet out of a random novel and I picture the question in my head perfectly.. Like it the question has to do with someone who is on a counsel making promises or two friends arguing or cats having a certain characteristic... Etc. I literally formulate the picture in my mind and I breeze through it and it doesn't even feel like I am reading.. But when it comes to the math and science questions... I just FREEZE because I can't picture 60 Celsius in my head or that cow milk is pasteurized at 50 degrees higher than it used to..Or that the ozone layer shrunk. I dunno. Sounds weird. Does anyone have any way to help me get over this?

It's been my experience that usually the ones involving numbers and scientific data need to be diagrammed. (mabye I'm just having a selective memory, but that's what I recall). Try diagramming with words, if the numbers freak you out?
