I figure out why the answer I selected was not the correct answer. I write a solution to the problem, then I check my solution against answers online, Manhattan, 7sage, etc. and against the problem's credited answer.
I think noting the correct answer then going back to the problem is a flawed approach. Anyone with a basic understanding of the LSAT can go back, knowing the correct answer, and give a decent reason of why that answer is correct, but it takes more to go back and figure out why you did what you did, what you should have done, and then to evaluate yourself based on what the answer actually is.
So in other words, re-do the whole test again but more slowly and methodically?
Looks like this will require a lot of patience and extra time.
If you assume that one is unsure in some amount on every question or the combination of uncertainty and errors consumes the whole test, then yes, if you followed my method, then you would redo the test again. However, this assumption is not a valid one if one has done the conceptual work and a decent amount of drilling.
Maybe for a short time it will require a lot of patience and extra time. But eventually it will not, maybe still patience I guess, but definitely not both, because the amount of mistakes will decrease.
