Thanks for the solid advice. If you don't mind, could you explain what you did when reviewing sections on completed tests? I've been writing down question types that I consistently get wrong, but I'd like to be able to get to the point at which I can easily recognize the tricks consistently used by test makers, particularly in LR. I consistently finish LG w/ like 6-8 minutes left, so I mostly have to work on eliminating careless mistakes in the other two sections. You're right about the need to not neglect RC. I try not to, but it's so painfully boring that it's hard to force myself to review it. It's probably the easiest section, when I actually am able to pay attention to the passages.
When reviewing, ask yourself 2 questions:
am I missing?
Are you missing specific question types? (eg. Must Be True/Assumption/Flaw/etc.)
Are you missing questions with formal logic elements?
Are you missing questions with heavy conditional reasoning elements?
Are you missing questions with numbers and percentages?
Are you missing questions that deal with technical nomenclature?
Are you missing questions that deal with science/economics/law/etc.?
If you can key in on the specific content of the types of problems that you are having trouble with, then you can work on developing an effective strategy for attacking those types of problems.
am I missing this/these question(s)?
Are you having timing issues and only missing questions when you are rushing at the end of the section? (focus on timing)
Are you misreading? (focus on attention to detail)
Are you misunderstanding the stimuli? (focus on attention to detail)
Did you get frustrated? (focus on mental/emotional strength & stamina)
Did you lose focus? (focus on mental/emotional strength & stamina)
Is there a more effective way that you could've attacked the problem? (focus on approach)
Did you misunderstand and/or mis-diagram the relationship between elements in the stimuli? (focus on attention to detail/conditional reasoning/formal logic)
Did you narrow the answer choices down to the correct answer choice and the answer choice that you incorrectly selected? Why did you choose the incorrect answer choice? Why was it attractive? Are you choosing the same types of incorrect answers over and over? (ie. opposite answers, shell game answers, out of scope answers, etc. [pp.225 LRB])
Look for patterns in your mistakes, many people make similar errors time and time again because they don't realize what they are having trouble with and why they are making errors.
