Timing with Logical Reasoning

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone had on advice of how to best practice logical reasoning with a mix of questions? I'm fine on accuracy and timing if I focus on a particular question type like on the drills, but I'm loosing accuracy once I take the timed practice tests. Is there a good method anyone has figured out to practice the mixed questions that minimizes taking out sections from the practice tests? (I don't want to use too many sections LR of the practice tests, since I want to save them for use as practice tests).

    Hey Michelle, there are so many PTs (1 - 69) are you sure you can't spare a few for mixed review? I would definitely save the later tests (50 -69) for practice but I think you should use earlier ones for practice.

    I hear you on the switch from drills to mixed questions; you get so used to approaching one sort of question, and it throws you off to adapt to another type. You need mixed review to practice switching modes of attack (" What's the question stem? Necessary assumption: look for the bridge or how to protect the argument. Circle answer. Cool, next question: resolve/discrepancy. What's the paradox? Ah. Answer choice A answers resolves both mystery 1 and mystery 2. Next." )

    So many different LR types with different approaches for each of them. Don't fret; you'll get in the zone! Just think of yourself as a mixed martial artist whose attack strategy depends on your opponent.

    @Quinn great advice! @Michelle, use the earlier prep tests (1-35) to use as practice.
