Review helps a ton, which is what got me here now. But I'm looking for something more.. And I don't have a pattern of weakness on a Q type.
I'm looking for the same magic bullet here Mikey...I typically range from -0 to -3 on each LR at this point. The killer part is it's always like -0,-3 or -1,-2, never -0,-1 or -0,-0.
I have noticed that 'skipping' harder questions and then going back to them actually causes me to do worse accuracy-wise on those questions than if I just spend the extra time up front when I get to them. Surprising result, but can't argue with the facts.
Yep. Magic bullet please come our way lol. I've only -0'd LR once.
Really tho? That's surprising.. I tend to skip the harder ones if I take too long on them and then depending on how I feel, I may do like 3 questions then go back to it OR I may just finish the section then go back. It's definitely just the really hard ones I get wrong, although when I end up going like -3 on the section it is most likely due to a slip up on an easy question which does happen once in a while.
I guess I haven't conclusively proven that for myself, but on the last PT I did, I skipped the parallel flaw/match the reasoning questions and saved them for the end. Normally I get all of those right (but it takes more time than other questions), but when I skipped and came back to do them at the end of the section, even though I had about 2.5 minutes per question, I missed both of them.
I think my brain was just done with the section at that point and decided it wasn't going to follow any reasoning patterns.
