Sorry for bringing this back from the dead, but it's a good topic.

I am awful at Method questions. They are the only ones that I still miss consistently.

For those who list Parallel Reasoning, you'd be pleased to know that they get significantly easier starting in the 40s and especially the 50s. I agree that during the 30s and before some can be pretty damn tough.

Parallel reasoning is probably my favourite question type, just because they're strangely easy for me. Wrong answers are easier to spot imo in parallel reasoning questions, so POE is the way to go. Strengthen/weaken questions get me the most.

Question about S/A questions: do you guys apply the mechanistic approach advocated by PowerScore? How effective has it been for you?

flaw questions


the correct answers are hard to find because they are worded weird.

I actually love the "except" questions. I find they are the easiest, if you just change your mindset. Whenever i see except (say strengthen except), i immediately go threw and find the ones that strengthen the argument and cross them off. Then whatever i am left with is usually the right answer.

Generally, PR and PF are tough until you figure it out, then they're among the easiest q-types (although still time consuming). I think my worst type according to LSATQA right before the October test was Weaken.

I agree with most other posters. Parallel Reasoning definitely my worst (~55% accuracy). Going to drill them with Cambridge in two weeks.
