##### tips for improving timing?
« on: August 14, 2004, 08:16:18 PM »
i just took my 2nd diagnostic today and got a 161. besides the games that i know i have to work on(i got 2 perfect and basically blew all of the other 2), i had the most trouble with the time limit on the logical reasoning sections.

i ended up missing 6 in the first lr section and 7 in the other, if i would have had time i would have only missed about 7-9 total if i wouldnt have run out of time(i looked at the last few questions after the test and got the right answers easily).  so i will almost cut the amount im missing on lr in half if i can get increase my speed.

so for those of you who finish the section early, what did you do to get the timing down while maintaining your accuracy?

skip around. Do parallel reasoning last. Do the double questions first. I usually do the first ten in order first though.

Shaz,

When you skip around, when do you bubble your scantron?  I've been bubbling as I go, but when I skip a question I always seem to screw up my scantron.

Skip Parallel Reasoning, they take up the time you can do 2 questions... after you do the first 15, skip to the last 5... then go back to 16 and do the rest... then go back to the PR questions.

I have not taken test Masters or power score. So, don't know which one is parallel reasoning. Is this the same as circular reasoning? Could anyone point out a question from preptests for me to identify a PR qustions? thanks
