Starting at the end of the section?

Since I have been barely finishing the LR sections in the allotted time, and get a little stressed toward the end of the section when the questions tend to get longer and/or harder, I may try starting at the end of the section. Thankfully, I still have time to practice, increase my speed and abandon this strategy if it doesn't work for me. I am just curious about whether anyone else has tried it or wants to chime in with reasons why this might be a bad idea?

    I find that doing the easier questions first boosts my confidence, and confidence is really important (in anything in life, really).

    Personally, I wouldn't like doing the end of the section first because it would likely throw my confidence off.

    But do what works for you. It's worth a shot to experiment on a PT or two.

    I think doing the harder questions first is only going to lower your scores. I think getting the easy questions completed first would be the best strategy (like the low-hanging fruit that JY discusses in one of the lessons). If I spend too long on a question I skip it and move onto the next one and make a note that I will go back to it if I have the time. I believe it's more important to get, for example, 23 easy-medium questions completed rather than getting 17 medium-hard questions completed in time. For my past few PT's I've made sure I get those easy questions and I've seen improvements in my scores.

    I've typically gotten to the harder portion of the section, typically 16-21, then jumped over to the easier ones at the very end of the section. I work backwards until I get back to where I started. This means I get the easy ones at the beginning and the easy ones at the end, too!
