100 questions a day until October 1st

Postby NeedtoStudy » Mon Aug 08, 2011 6:16 pm

I might seem insane, but I am going to do 15 PT's and all questions (timed) from PT1-PT38 in the next 8 weeks.

I started today with:

1st 4 Relative Ordering of LG (-0)
1st 4 Science Passages of RC (-1)
1st 50 of Strongly Supported of LR (-7)

I also went over my incorrect answer choices; I know that's one of the most crucial parts of my prep. I had the bibles on hand, but I don't feel like it's as crucial to spend time reading them (I will refer to them when I need them).

You think drilling like this is the way to go?

Quality is more important than quantity. Take fewer questions and review them more thoroughly. Review every question you get wrong and every question you get right. Know why every answer choice is either right or wrong.

Also, read the bibles, don't just look at them when you get a question wrong.

I like studying more efficiently over studying a lot. You do practice questions to learn the types of questions and better identify the answers. Change it to 50 and break down each question completely. Add in full practice tests to simulate the testing environment. Timed is crucial, as always.

I'd mix in one full day off and one simulated test a week.

100 questions by type on every day but Wednesday and Saturday, when I do full 5 section tests.

As for the bibles, I don't look at them when I'm wrong. I look at them to get a sense of the question or game type.

There is one thing: I almost feel like taking a certain portion of LR and just writing out a prephrase for each question. At this point, I'm of the mind that answer choices are more of a hinderance than a help. If you don't go to the answer choices with an idea of what the answer could be, you'll just fall into one of the testmaker's traps. Every wrong answer was me falling for one of their traps.
