LR Question type drilling/training.

Postby SunDevil14 » Mon Aug 01, 2016 6:57 pm

What is usually best practice for drilling problematic question types in the LR section?

lets say you have issues with 4 types of questions. Would it be better to:

1. compile 25 questions for one type, and do them in 35 minutes followed by a blind review

2. compile 25 questions composed of a equitable distribution of the 4 types, do them in 35 minutes then blind review

3. Focus on one type at a time and review each question after you answer it

Of these methods, I think it's best to start with something like #3. Move slowly, and consult your step-by-step strategy for the question type when you review. Try and see if you followed each step. Go over each answer choice very carefully.

After you've done a bunch and want to challenge yourself more, do something like number 1. I'd focus more on doing them accurately than with making sure you do them within 35 minutes. After all, you're not ever going to have to take a full section of the same question type, so the time limit is a bit arbitrary.

You make some good points. Probably start with #3 and then transition into 1 or 2
