What does everyone else do?
I have always read the question stem first. I don't know why, but I feel that it just gets me in the best state of mind when I'm reading the stimulus. However, I'm in a Testmasters course now and they are so against this as is Powerscore and the LRB, mainly saying that it takes your focus off being able to fully understand the information in the stimulus.
Now I tried reading the stimulus first one time (on a diagnostic) and I couldn't even finish the section. I've never not finished a section. Not only that I missed more questions than I have ever missed.
Does anybody think it's really that important to read the stimulus first? Is it even worth me trying to change at this point?
