LR, No specific weak type, but still miss questions...

Postby 15chocolate » Wed May 08, 2013 7:21 pm

Hi,
how can I improve in LR when I do not have a specific weak type of questions?
Still miss some questions like about one in some type and miss one in different types in different PTs.
Also, how can I eliminate careless mistakes? :(
Thanks.

Are you tracking stuff on lsatqa to make sure there isn't specific problem areas? Are you missing a certain family of questions (such as assumption/weaken/strengthen).

Anyway, pick one that you miss consistently and drill that to perfection and move on to the next one.

REVIEW. REVIEW. REVIEW. The patterns start to show up once you get to know them.

You should also be looking for patterns in the incorrect answers you select. Are you always falling for logical force tricks? For equivocations? If you can figure out which fallacies you're committing to get to the wrong answers, you're in much better shape to avoid falling for them in the future.

Did another PT.
I think I'm weak at assumption family...miss one in flaw, one assumption question one in strengthen etc. but not miss like 3 in one specific assumption family.
In this case how can I make improvement?
I do review after each PTs and find out how I did wrong etc...after review, do you do the questions or PT once again??
I'm not sure whether I should drill bc I miss them ramdomly...
and infer/most supported question. I guess I should do some drilling for this one...
