Answers of which you're certain

Postby Zeta » Tue Nov 13, 2012 10:01 pm

i missed 5 on each of my two LR sections. i know that's not great and i'm retaking. the thing is, i was certain on maybe 50% of the questions. how many of the questions should i know i got right for sure in the LR and still expect a 165+?

wat.

do you answer all the questions?
were you 50% certain on all the questions you answered, or on the questions you missed?
how well do you do on the other sections?

i felt certain about my answer on about 50% of the LR questions i answered. i missed 7 on LG and !#&$%! 12 on RC. i scored a 157.
and it was actually 6 and 5 missed on the LR sections.

It depends on how you define "certain." Lame response, I know.

For me, I like to be near 100% certain about the right answer-- this isn't always possible given the time constraints. The way that you can boost your "LSAT logic" is by doing un-timed questions and simply analyzing why a certain answer choice is right or wrong. Eventually you will become a lot more "certain."

The process of elimination also works wonders. Even if you can't intuitively "know" the answer, if you can rule out the other answers, you'll know that the remaining one is the correct one.
