Do u people find, that after doing many of the Logical Reasoning questions you are able to narrow the choices down easier and you also begin to see the right answer easier?

I have definitely found that to be true...for instance I have learned how to identify a lot of the "traps" much more efficiently.
eg. for the mood questions, anything that is too extreme is usually wrong.
Also if a choice for a "which of the following uses a similar line of reasoning" I know that any questiion that uses similar language is probably wrong (i.e. question asks about cars and answer talks about cars).

I don't agree with your remarks about parallel reasoning questions...I wouldn't make the generalisation that any answer choice that uses similar language is wrong...I would just look for the correct answer choice by categorizing the conclusion of the original argument (i.e., is the conclusion a recommendation? A prediction?) and then looking for the answer choice that has the same type of conclusion.
