Mastering Questions via Drilling

Postby NicoleLauren17 » Tue May 08, 2012 9:10 pm

Just curious, what do you consider “mastery” of a question type when drilling? For example, when I drill Assumption questions I typically will get maybe 1 or 2 out of 20 wrong. Do you consider this mastery of a question type, or would you only consider getting 0 wrong to be mastery?

think of it in percentage wise. That's around 90-95 percent, I'll say that's pretty good. But you also have to take account of other factors, such as what difficulty are these questions, in the early 10s or late 10s in the section. If they are chosen randomly, and you are consistently getting that score, then you are in good shape.

yeah what he/she said. Also make sure that the 1 or 2 you miss aren't the same type. you could be in for a long day if you didn't notice you constantly miss necessary assumption questions.
