When I review the questions, I'm just like DUH... but under time pressure, things that shouldn't be connecting start connecting in my mind and man, it's a mess!! I get kind of scatter-brained!!
Any suggestion on how to be DISCIPLINED in my thought pattern?
Review Qs you get wrong and figure out why exactly you fell for the wrong answer. Often times this can come down to a single word (like only or primarily), an AC you thought was in scope but is actually out of scope (happens for strengthen and weaken questions), or reversed logic plain and simple (quite frequent for sufficient assumption and parallel flaw).
Once you see a pattern, resolve not to let it happen again through drilling, extensive review, writing out explanations. Just my two cents.
