I was hoping that I would have trouble with a specific type of question that way I could drill and review that type of question in the LRB
Any advice? I have taken 7 or 8 Pt's and reviewed and I am still getting between -5 and -7

Chances are you have lack understanding of certain fundamentals.
Also, if you're getting Main Conclusion questions wrong, you may want to review your analysis of the relationship between premises and the conclusion. Since most of the question types focus on this relationship (Assumption, Flaw, Weaken, Strengthen, Main Conclusion, Role of x, Agree/Disagree, etc...) it might be the crux of your problems.

. See what happens. My guess is that you problem is actually timing. Though a few things to look for:
If most of the questions are the first fifteen, and upon review you feel stupid for having missed it (as in the right answer is immediately obvious to you) then likely you are going to fast through them and are getting cocky.
If most of them are the last ten, then it's likely an issue of difficulty level.
Try what I just told you to do and see if it helps. Also, when you read the arguments for argument based questions always repeat it back to yourself as (conclusion) because odd (evidence). It cuts down on mistakes from reading too quickly.
