Every single LR question I missed I narrowed down to 2 and selected the wrong answer, yet when I reviewed, it was obvious why the wrong one was wrong and why the right one was right, so I am really trying to train myself to see that during the test. I also have this nasty problem of going down the line of answer choices and seeing one that I think is right and then not reading the remaining answer choices with as much precision.
Yeah I know what you mean. I think when it comes down to it, at least for flaw questions, there will be two attractive answer choices (at least in more difficult questions), but one will just be way too weak to be the right answer. I think this is esp common in principle justify, strengthen, and weaken, where they will write one or more answer choices that seem attractive, but the stimulus actually leaves room for those answer choices.
i have that problem too- where i see an answer choice A or B that looks like the ONE...and then end up skimming past the rest of the choices and inadvertently missing the real one. i've gotten in the habit of just ticking off next to the choices that seem to be candidates, even if im almost POSITIVE that a choice is right. having a tick mark next to a choice as opposed to having a choice circled does wonders psychologically as far as reading the rest of the choices intently.
I am going to try that. Has it worked well for you?
