Studying recommendation - retaker

Postby homie1515 » Sun Jul 28, 2013 8:47 pm

What's up everyone. I'm a retaker... I got a 170 last time but I'm taking it again in October. I was wondering if everyone here was of the school of thought that you shuold drill every type of problem before PTing, or rather PTing and then going over your weaknesses via drilling??

Thoughts/insight would be appreciated.

How much drilling did you do before the June test? I am in the same situation as you (170 in June, retake in October). I'm mostly drilling now and then PTing/reviewing once September hits. But, that's because I did not drill much before the June test.

I would say I drilled half of the level 3's and 4's almost all of the level 1 and 2's.

I'd start PTing soon, then, and drill the question types you miss most often. That said, I'm of the mindset that as long as you are putting the work in you cannot really hurt yourself.

Ya, I agree with that sentiment... yet I can't find myself being as motivated as I should be when it is time to drill... PT's on the other hand I have no problem doing, and therefor think they are a better source of study especially since they wont burn me out psychologically. I am starting my PTing from 40-69 on wednesday, some of them will be redos (nearly all of the 60's except 66).

When I am going over question types that are giving me problems... should i go over level 1's 2's 3's or 4's?

I would focus on the 1's and 2's then save the 3's and 4's for when you add experimental sections, i.e. pt 38 LR1 or 2 would be an experimental and you would have all of the 3s and 4's fresh...

Perhaps others feel differently.
