Ok, I'll clear things up, and for the sake of brevity I'll assume you're referring to LR in Cambridge, I'm pretty sure this is correct, although I believe it hasn't been explicitly stated, and I'm in LSAT mode so I have to clearly point out assumptions.
Drilling: Do the ones and twos from each packet. Do 30 level ones, then 30 level twos, review after each 30 questions. I'm suggesting that if you feel that you must look at the threes and fours, then do half or less of the questions for each level, three and four, from the question type you feel that you must do. It's been awhile since I cracked open my Cambridge LR folders, but I believe they're ordered, in terms of difficulty, from earliest to latest, referring to PTs. So it would be pretty easy to start at the 30s and check them out.
I'm suggesting that you do some of the level threes and fours from the pre-30s, if and only if, you feel that you must do them to strengthen weak areas. I'm also suggesting that you don't do all of the level threes and fours from any packet. I'm suggesting that you don't do them so that when you use the 30s for fifth sections, you have new and potentially challenging material to test your skills upon.
Yes, i am referring to LR. So let me get this straight. Please correct me if im wrong.
You suggest that I:
Do 30 level 1 questions --> Review said questions
Do 30 level 2 questions --> Review said questions
Do 30/remaining level 1 questions --> Review said questions
Do 30/remaning level 2 questions --> Review said questions
Do level 3 questions that are pre PT30 --> Review said questions
Do level 4 questions that are pre PT30 --> Review said questions
Use PT30+ as 5th section on upcoming PTs.
Now you also say that if i feel they are necessary then i should do level 3 and level 4, but if i just did level 1 and 2 on the must be true that i finished already then i would not think it was necessary for me to do level3 or 4 because i only got 7 wrong, yet after doing 3 and 4 I see that i did not have a grasp of the ideas to complete the questions correctly. So what would you have done in my situation had I only done section 1 and 2 and got 7 wrong? Would you continue up to level3 and level4, Im just confused as to why I wouldn't use these questions to drill when im going to be exposed to level 3's and level4's when i PT and when i sit to take the LSAT in June...
If my last paragraph got a little wordy or confusing let me know and ill try to rewrite it better.
EDIT: OR are you saying to not do the post-30 questions because im going to be inevitably seeing the questions and answers when I PT? BEcause that makes sense and i think it just clicked for me. Except the fact that how do i know if i need to do any level 3 or level 4? based solely off of my 1 and 2 performance? It seems like would i get ice hockey lessens because i know how to skate around the ring (how will i know if i can play ice hockey with just that little bit of knowledge)?
