i find that i'm never sure of the correct answer until i've ruled out the wrong ones. is this okay? i feel like i should be able to confidently choose the correct answer w/out having to rely on the wrong ones to be sure.

Yeah, you want to move quickly during games, so you really want to not go through wrong answers -- except maybe the first question. That one tends to go by the set-ups, and you can do it fairly quickly.
The arguments section does seem to lend itself to the process of elimination. No problem with eliminating wrong answers -- it's what I do usually.

Knowing the correct answer going into the ACs will make you quicker and more accurate.
However, eliminating the other answer choices also gets you the right answer (just slower, and less accurately). So if it's working, I wouldn't mess with it. However, I would start trying to prephrase an answer, as that will help you eliminate answers, increase accuracy, and also help you speed up (see item one on this list).
