It's not bad advice. However, keep in mind that there are 50+ tests available. There is not a shortage of games to practice with.
Yes but in the course weve already abused quite a few tests for practice. So I have a list of, and access to, all the tests that PS didnt compromise.
Here's my game strategy... I'm doing one practice test every other day for the next month. Today is October 2001 and I'll finish on the 27th with June 2007. My idea is to use the most recent test as practice chronologically up until T day. Then for, the week before the test, do 4, 1 a day Monday - Thursday, taking Friday off to meditate, play frisbee with the dogs, jump in the ocean, anything I can to keep my mind off the Test.
Anyway on the days inbetween the tests I want to do about 8 games/ day to work on timing/ set up and after all the practice I've already done I'm about 40 fresh games short. I figure I'll try and recycle a few, the hardest, and use fresh ones the last two weeks before T day.
Is that more than anyone needs to know? Sorry thinking outloud/ looking for avice.
Also keep in mind that there are many games that have minimal set-ups to them. Whether or not you come up with the 'optimal' set-up, you need to practice applying what you do come up with to the questions to get to the filling in the right bubbles part.
Yes I figure I will eliminate the easier games early on and end up redoing some of the harder ones until I get my setups accurate and quickly.
You can add deductions to your set-up that you realize when you tackle the questions. You have to find the right balance. Even with the 'perfect' set-up and deductions there are questions that you need to extrapolate from the set-up to solve.
Thanks yes I'm aware of that. The thing I've noticed is when you get all the setup and inferences before you start, usually, about half the questions fall very quickly, then some of those will help answer other questions, or at least eliminate some ACs, and then youve only got 2-4 that require real "extrapolating."
Thanks very much. I appreciate all the input. If anyone sees any way I can improve my final month strategy please by all means let me know.
