I know the general consensus is read chapter in MLR->drill corresponding type, but what I'm wondering is how you actually structure the drilling? Timed or untimed? Individual or in sections (e.g. 25 questions)? Easy(1) to hard (4) in order, or mix difficulties along the way?
I'm currently thinking about doing individual questions, starting with the easiest and progressing the hardest, and timing how long it takes me to do each one. Not sure if this is a good strategy.
I'm still going through 7Sage curriculum even though I have already hit up different books on LR/LG/RC (Manhattan and PowerScore). So I might be in a different boat from you, but what I usually do is go along with the corresponding lesson-when I complete the lesson hit up my Cambridge LR bundle by type and do questions untimed. Previously, I was doing large amounts at a time (~100 questions), but now I'm breaking them up in smaller sets so (~50 questions at a time) take a break and then do the other 50 questions. I also review the questions by page, so if I have 3 or 4 questions on a page I will review the one/s I got wrong/wasn't 100% certain I completely understood immediately bc then my recent though process is still fresh. If I can't explain the reasons a question type is wrong, I hit the Manhattan forums. I still hit them even if I can explain, just to see if my reasoning matches up.
