By relax and attack, I don't mean I'm just staring off into space, or writing furiously, its kinda just a feeling like I'm actively going after the test and moving quickly or just being passive and thinking through the question. Hard to explain, but I hope that covers it.
I agree 110% with this. I sometimes end up just "thinking about" the answers choices instead of actively trying to eliminate wrong ones and find the right one. Happens on LG occasionally (look for magical inference instead of just making 1-2 hypothetical to eliminate the wrong options), but much more often on RC (debate two options in my head instead of just re-reading the passage to find the answer).
Finished PT 57 today:
LR 1: -7
LR 2: -2
LG: -2 (those damn time-killing dinosaurs)
90 / 101 = 170. Obviously happy with the score, but I'm starting to get mildly annoyed (read: unbelievably angry) with my LR sections. This is the third PT in a row where I've gotten -8 combined, but each time I've done significantly worse on one section than the other (the first was -6, -2; the other was also -7, -1). Any thoughts? Is this just a sign of bad fundamentals? Should I pick up a LR guide from manhattan, or is there a quicker / easier fix?
When I review, I typically go, "oh, wow, what was I thinking. Obviously this is the right answer, and obviously my original answer as wrong." I'm thinking the problem is related to a lack of consistent concentration - anyone have experience with this / have a good strategy to be mentally-sharp for each, individual question?
