When reviewing LR, do you review the ones you got right too?

Postby notaznguy » Mon Dec 12, 2011 2:43 am

So far, I've only been reviewing the ones I get WRONG (which is like anywhere from 5-8 per section). I never bother to go over the ones I got right. What do you guys recommend?

I always mark ones where I'm torn between answers. Even if I got it correct I'd like to go back and look at what separated my correct answer from the ones that were close.

This + 1. You should be reviewing any questions that you are indecisive about. You will probably find that you consistently get wrong/are torn about a specific type of question stem or passage.

^This. important to always know why you chose an answer you were uncertain about, and know why it HAD to be the right answer. Also, gives you better insight as to whether you should generally trust your intuition or distrust it. Some people find they are generally better off with their first leaning, and some find out they are generally better off with their second leaning.

All solid advice. It's a good rule to review each and every correct and incorrect choice regardless of whether you were credited with a point.

Don't waste time reviewing questions that were really obvious and easy to you. Do mark the questions where you had even just a tiny bit of trouble (draw a star beside it while you're working through). That way you won't waste time with stuff you already know very well by heart. This way you can minimize the uncertainty when you go through different types of questions.

Another thing that this will help you with is, "I always get it down to two and choose the wrong answer" syndrome. If you go back and review the questions that you got right but weren't sure on, you'll quickly realize that you don't always pick the wrong answer out of two. It'll then let you analyze the differences between the ones you pick right and the ones you pick wrong so you can start eliminating the latter.

If you're torn between two choices on several questions, and you get about half of them right, chances are that at least some of those correct answers were lucky guesses. Review these.
