When to transition from untimed drilling to sections?

Postby flash21 » Wed Sep 04, 2013 1:08 pm

At what point do you make this transition? And, do you begin with, for example, doing a 35 minute section of LR, stopping, and blind reviewing it?

How did you guys go about it and decide when to start doing timed sections (not full PT's).

I just started when I finished the Manhattan book. But it wasn't a harsh divide. It was more like:

- do Manhattan, drill.
- start doing timed sections
- realize I don't know how to do XXX type of question
- drill more
- more timed sections

etc, etc.

Before I started doing strictly timed sections, I started doing sections that I timed myself (as in, instead of setting a clock for 35 minutes, I just started the stopwatch on my phone). That was nice, because I realized I was already taking around 35 minutes to do a section.

Okay sounds good. I've been drilling LR for a while but have yet to incorporate full LR timed sections. I think I'll start now then, and take note of which problems are giving me trouble and drill them more, similar to how you've approached it. Thanks.
