HELP. How to improve the speed in LG section???

Postby jasonjerk123 » Thu Sep 26, 2013 10:38 am

I've been taking some PTs these days, with normally -1 or -0 in LG section, but always, always, that'll take me around 50 mins... I've been using some techniques LG Bible taught me, but sometimes I found it quite time consuming, so I sometimes refer to my own techniques (they cannot actually be called 'techniques').. but both of them are quite time consuming for me now..

As for the RC part, continuously -4 for 3 PTs (not native English speaker here, so RC is quite a hard section for me to handle), any suggestions on RC section?

LR section, always been my weakest part.. -4 on each section approximately ... But I guess I could improve that quite a bit since I started at -8 for each section, it took me around a week to get them down to -4, but I'm pretty sure that improving from -4 to -1/2 will take way more time than improving from -8 to -4, so any suggestions on this part?

PS, I took the PTs untimed for twice, scored 170 and 171. and timed for twice, scored 165 and 166. I started learning about 10 days ago.

Given 50 minutes, there are few people who could not go -1 on LG. The time restriction is what makes the section -- and all the sections -- difficult.

I recommend the 7sage method. Drill, watch the explanation http://7sage.com/logic-game-explanations/ ... Then drill, drill, drill.

You've been doing it for 10 days and you're scoring 165s untimed?

Drill baby, drill.

Repetition

Eventually set ups and inferences become automatic
