Score well untimed but not so well timed

Postby Cheyenne » Sat Aug 26, 2017 4:34 pm

On my timed PTs I score in the low 160s. When I do a blind review of the PTs my score is always in the mid 170s. So basically I'm taking this to mean that I understand the questions when I have endless time to answer but once I add the time factor it's another story. On average I skip about 4-5 questions in each LR section; I barely make it to the 4th passage in RC; and I pretty much always finish the LG section (sometimes when there's harder games I might not get to 1-2 questions). Any suggestions for what I can do? Should I drill more or take more practice tests? I take 1-2 PTs each week. I'm planning on upping it to 3 per week for this final stretch.

You don't necessarily need to do full PT's to improve timing. You can do timing sections individually of LR or what have you so you can improve solely on timing without burning through many PT's if you please.
