Reading all answer choices

I know that this issue has already been dealt with before, but in JY's live commentary videos, he says that for certain question types, such as SA or MP questions, if you are sure, you should just be confident and move on without reading other ACs. Anybody else doing this??

    Actually, I found this
    https://7sage.com/discussion/#/discussion/7447/reading-all-the-answer-choices-vs-stopping-after-you-ve-found-the-right-one... which is really helpful.

    But if you have anything to add, please share! Thanks!

    Ok good, glad you found that! I was reading your post and was like man, we had a really great thread on this a while back.

    When JY says "if you are reviewing wrong answer choices, even after choosing the right one, that could be a symptom of under-confidence", is he referring to going back to ACs that you've already eliminated, or is he referring to wrong ACs that are obvious, due to your certainty of the right answer? He says that he didn't "even bother reading the other ACs" (question 3 PT 77 S4).

    @guitarnara - JY mentioned something very similar when I asked him about this on a BR call. In your case I think he meant all ACs besides the correct one, not just those you have concretely eliminated. Some LR questions should be as straightforward as LG - when you have decidedly arrived at the answer, you can consider all the others as wrong, even if you haven't read them!
