Or presumably for focused drilling when you spot weaknesses during PT phase.
Is everyone drilling ALL questions for each question type for LR? Or is anyone saving some for later?
To me - and this is just my potentially uninformed opinion - but I would think that you definitely should drill 3s and 4s. Why would you save the hardest stuff for PT's? You'll get plenty of hard stuff in the PT as it is . To me, you would want to go into PT's knowing that you have seen the worst of the worst in the LR world. After intensely drilling level 3s and 4s and eventually doing well on them, I think not only will it give you a bunch of confidence but it will help you nail those really easy ones.
From what i have read, LR is much less about getting every question done in 1:20 as it is about nailing those easy ones in 20 seconds and banking time to spend on those really nitty gritty questions from 15-20, 8-10, and potentially 22-25.
Yea I didn't really understand Daily_Double's logic in doing that. He also recommended drilling all 1's or all 2's in groups of 30, rather than mixing it up. I also don't think I agree with this advice entirely, but I have tried it. I think my packets are better when I have a good mix of 1's, 2's, 3's, and 4's. But I am drilling in groups of 30, so it's like an extra long LR section. I consider it an endurance building factor while also drilling.
How does everyone review questions they get wrong? What is your process? I've been saving all my missed ones and done some review on my own, but am curious to see what other people are doing for review. I'm only doing LR at the moment, but am open to hearing what people find works for RC and LG too. After all, I see on all credited TLS guides that review is of paramount importance.
Quick question. I recently just bought the Cambridge bundle and was going through the question types for LR and was wondering how do you know which questions belongs to which difficulty level? The footnote for each questions at the bottom only lists which pt the question was selected from
