Finished BRing PT 45 from yesterday, which was going over the RC section.
RC is my major weakness and analyzing my BR from what I got wrong timed I can see spot my problems. When I blind review I KNOW which problems I am having trouble with. (This goes to LR as well). SO it is not coming out of left field. I can tell which questions are 10000% accurate and which ones are off. That is one positive at least. I know what I don't know
The questions I could tell were wrong I got right. Blind reviewing RC I got -1 wrong and timed -10. I completely misinterpreted the author's point in the 2nd passage going a whooping -5 on that one passage. So untimed I understand what is going on and I understand the questions. I think under the pressure of time I do not allocate my time correctly. I also do not go back enough to confirm the answer. Author's opinion questions give me the hardest time because I often miss the minute details of what the author's opinion is. Also I find organization questions to be tricky for me. I need to work on understanding the structure AND the details. Especially because recent tests (I feel) focus on detail a lot more.
My overall BR score for PT 45 is 175 (I didn't include the mistakes I fixed for LG). I need to translate this into my TIMED pts. I understand the concepts for MOST, but the hardest questions, just need to be cool and logical under pressure. So timing it is...
