Go over every answer choice on every question and understand why it is either right or wrong

What I did was write down every question I got wrong, the right answer, my answer, why I got it wrong, and a solution for preventing a wrong choice next time, which could be anything from "assume 99% of A is B, then see if the absolute answer, where 100% of A is B, is really necessary" to simple things like "READ!!" (if I got it wrong for misreading). Worked well for me.

I made a chart similar to etymology's methods - it helped me figure out whether my mistakes were due to me being stumped or whether I screwed the pooch on. I'm stealing etymology's making self-tips idea - never thought to articulate to myself a strategy.

The big 4 questions to ask yourself (and write down in a log):
1) Why is the right answer right?
2) Why is my wrong answer wrong?
3) What about the wrong answer made me think it was correct?
4) What about the right answer made me think it was wrong?

The first two are for comprehension. The last two are to diagnose what you're messing up on.
