To be completely honest - although i have gone through the lgb and i am finishing up the lrb, its very difficult for me to use the lrb concepts efficiently. That is - after a lot of practice untimed (in lrb) i'll start getting questions right, but not necessarily because i understand the concept or question - its because i start recognizing what the right answers tend to be.
when i'm working through a timed test i just kind of try to figure each question out one by one, and i never conciously apply the concepts.
i could probably be doing better if i had started really preparing a long time ago...but oh well. my recent jump in score was encouraging, and now i know what i'm capable of.
i think the trick to everything is just taking a million practice tests timed, and sections timed or untimed, and going over all the questions you got wrong. i havnt noticed a huge difference from test to test but i see that from most test takers, they usually break their plateau around the 10th practice test, using these methods.
don't know if that helped any but theres my 2 cents.
i don't know man. i don't know if doing a million tests is really gonna do the trick. personally, i started out reading a lot about the theory and getting background on each section and ever since then, i have been pretty much taking a practice test/day and then going over my answers. it helps in terms of feeling comfortable and knowing what to expect with each section, but my score is constantly around 157-158. i go over my answers, but nothing seems to work. maybe i need to put more time into games or something.
i just need 3 more points!!
