I would greatly appreciate any words of advice/wisdom.
I took my diagnostic test back in the early part of February when I started the Kaplan course I am currently enrolled in. As the course has progressed, I have increased my studying time to pretty much any free time I now have. (on top of a full time job + 2hrs total commute). I plan on taking the test in June.
My initial Diagnostic for the course was a 144. We just took another practice test in the course, and I have only improved by 3 points to a 147.
From the breakdown:
In LR I significantly improved with Assumption type questions, and I seem to be "flawless" with the flaw questions, however MP, Method of Arg, Paradox, and Inference are my largest weak points. I was able to answer and complete roughly 17-18 of the 25 total LR questions per section, and seem to range about 3-5 wrong out of the 17-18 I tackle. (In practice on timed LR sections I am scoring with the same range of 17-18, and 3-5 wrong answers, occasionally only 1-2 wrong)
For LG I tripped myself up with the setup on one game, for all the questions I did tackle I got correct, but I missed an entire game due to time. I feel with a repeated run through of games I will not have too much of an issue in this section, I am finding in practice I do not have too much issue with the Logic Games.
As for RC I appear to be an incredibly slow reader, or I spend too much time second guessing/ensuring that I have the information correct, and then only end up with enough time to tackle 2 passages. I seem to not do that poorly on the questions, (answering incorrectly on only 1, or 2) however I miss a great deal of questions due to not even tackling the 2 other passages.
In all honestly I feel I have only really begun a dedicated and disciplined study plan about 3 weeks ago, initially I was failing to dedicate enough time after a full day of work, now I go directly to the library after work until it closes. I now average about 20 hours of study time per week.
I welcome any and all advice on what to do to improve my scores. Also, with the June test roughly 2 months away, do I have enough time to improve adequately enough on the test to score above even a 160?
