Re: Does LR get tougher near the end or do I get dumber?

also called a false dichotamy ehehe

the logical reasoning bible talks about this. the 3rd set of pages has the hardest questions. the last few are hard in that they take a long time to solve and there's some hard ones in terms of logical structure...

so it gets harder. most likely, you are not getting dumber.

you don't get dumber, you just get fatigued.  Its a very common problem!

The questions in the middle are definitely more difficult, intermingled with easier ones. Toward the end they usually get easier again. I do #s 1-9 then #s 20- the end first. Then I do the ones in the middle. Usually this leaves me about two minutes per question for the hardest questions.

That's sounds like a good strategy. I personally think the middle ones are harder that the end sometimes. I'm going to try this method today.

But, then I was thinking.... What is questions 20 and up has the parallel questions that normally take longer than usual, would this strategy still work??

I think it's fatigue!

I always skip PR and come back to them, no matter what # they are.

Same here.  I always get the first 10-12 right, and then trail off from there.  I don't believe it's fatigue, because even when I go back and do corrections, they stand out and require my special attention.

I tried the strategy, and scored higher on the LR section with time to spare. Amazing.
