New books have arrived!

Postby agalfano » Tue Feb 11, 2014 9:10 pm

The Trainer and the Manhattan bundle just showed up on my doorstep, and that means I'm about to purchase the Cambridge Packets. This seems to be a relatively popular approach and setup for some people on this website, and I was wondering which was the best way to approach this and what was the best way organize this material.

Ex. Which books should I use first? Should I couple them together somehow?

And anyone that has used these sources can you give me a little heads up on how good they work? I've heard great reviews but I'd like to hear some actual stories and feedback from people on here! Thanks!

for LR. when you do the chapter in manhattans LR do the corresponding drilling packet with it, not all of it, but a good bit to get in the groove and understand the process of each LR question type. for manhattan RC, i dunno bro just do RC as much as you can, you have to find what works for YOU. and id watch the velocity free RC videos, they helped me. do RC do RC do RC, people say it can become an automatic -0 for you if you work hard enough. i got it to -1 to -3 consistent. and i dont know anything about manhattan LG but the trainer helped me alot with LG. main thing is whenever you study a particular passage type/ game type/ LR question type , shortly thereafter do the corresponding drilling packet so you can practice implementing the process when it is fresh on your mind in order to get it to be second nature. and all this is good, but get a lot of PTs too man. id recommend doing atleast PT 52-71. and make sure you simulate REAL test conditions like do the first 3 sections BOOM BOOM BOOM, no time in between and then take 15 and do the last 1 or 2 (depending on what you buy) immediately back to back

First: Read the trainer and do the in-book drills.
Second: Read Manhattan Books and after each chapter, do corresponding drill in in Cambridge packets. I think the best way to do this is to work on multiple sections at once, versus doing a complete topic and then moving on to the next (ie: LR-> LG-> RC).

Depending on when you plan to take the test, you may want to make a calendar NOW- indicating when you are going to take which PTs. Then you have a better idea of how much time you have to get through the rest of the work.
