Incorrect answers on practice tests

Postby Barack Zuckerkorn » Wed Oct 25, 2017 5:26 pm

Hi :)

What should one do with the incorrect answers when one completes a practice test ?
I know that its best to save them, but what then?
Is it best to re-test oneself under testing conditions or work through them carefully to seek out the errors

Thank you :)

Ideally you should be blind reviewing. After taking a timed PT I have another blank test copy that I use for blind reviewing where I go through the whole test without any time constraints so I can really understand why each answer choice is correct and why the other 4 answer choices are wrong. At this point I haven't looked at the answer key or graded my test to see how many questions I got right/wrong.

Afterwards, I keep track of all of the LR questions that gave me trouble and make a drill set of tougher questions for that PT. I keep track of hard logic games that I want to redo later. RC is my weakest section so I redo timed RC sections later on.

Damn, that's a lot of patience. I can't wait to check the answers after I finish. I jump the gun. :)

Yeah, the blind review process is pretty brutal. With that being said, it's really helped my PT scores since I'm developing a strong understanding of the test after going through each question that I struggle with both during and after the test.

I took PT 46 on Saturday and just finished blind reviewing today. I took Sunday off and didn't get nearly as much studying on Monday and Tuesday as I usually would. Typically the blind review process takes me a day or two. Got a 172 on the timed test and my blind review score was a 179. From what I've read on the internet, this test seems to be one of the easier PTs but it still feels good to score such a high BR. My breakdown was actually 26/26 on RC, 24/25 LR Section 2, 20/26 LR Section 3 and 22/22 LG. I thought the section 3 LR was actually pretty difficult and I definitely learned a lot after blind reviewing this section.

I took PT 46 today as well. I thought the test was comparably easy, but I think the curve was pretty harsh. LG and RC were the easiest for me for this test.
