Best way/tips to improve on LR questions 15-25+?

Postby justbubbles » Thu Nov 17, 2011 11:01 pm

Seems like I score perfect on LR q's 1-15.

From Q 15 on I started screwing up, because obviously it's hard, verbose, etc. :(

Any tips/suggestions on doing better on these last few questions?

Somethings that I have tried:

* In the interest of time, cherry-picking the ones I can do well on (eg - assumption questions; leaving the time-consuming ones till the end, eg - formal logic, parallel reasoning, etc)

Anything else? :?

Are you using any supplemental material to study? I would recommend the powerscore LR bible

I found that using this: http://www.cambridgelsat.com/productdet ... stions/336 was particularly helpful in mastering the last 10 questions. Usually you find a "hard" question around 8-12 and then a couple more from 19-26. Just doing a crapton of these "difficult" questions and then reviewing the hell out of them should make you better at recognizing the patterns correct answers have and patterns the wrong answers have.

A lot of it was mental for me, I think I went through the same thing your going through now. I would brainfuck myself going into that section of the LR section. What I started telling/reminding myself was that I know I could rape each and every one of those questions individually, so wtf is the big deal about them being back to back...this isn't the greatest answer, but it worked for me.

Maybe you are spending too much time with the first 15. Get yourself to get through the first 10 problems in 10 minutes before you ever sit down for an actual administration. When your able to do the first 15 in 15 minutes you will really start enjoying LR because then you have 20 minutes for the last 10 problems. So if timing is the issue, and your worried about the back 10, focus on the front 15 first.

Master the specific question types. There is no magic formula for getting 15-25 right other than being really good at all types of LR questions.
