Hi All,

My weakness is in verbal, in the 23 to 27 range. As we all know, the best way to improve is to do questions and learn from your errors. I've started to track my mistakes; however, I'm still not sure if I'm doing the right thing cuz it's not really working for me.

This is what I have done:

For RC, I'll take the questions I got wrong I fit it into one of these types: Main Idea, Infer, Detail, Attitude....

For CR, I'll do the same and fit the errors into one of these types:
Support, Weaken, Infer, Paradox....

For SC, I'm having trouble identify the types of errors. Am I suppose to figure out what each choice was testing on? for example, Modifier, S-V agreement, Tense.... How do I identify those? Usually each question test on more than one area.

After tacking down these errors, I would go over the concepts and do them again. Is that the most effective way of using error tracking?

What do you guys do to learn from your mistakes? Please share...

Thanks!

I tried to identify my weak areas but quite honest, I think I'm weak in all verbal areas, and they are pretty even. On a good day, I'll get about 6/10 verbal questions right in each sections.

I've done hundreds of Verbal questions (OG10 + OG11, 1000 documents...) and always felt something is missing.

Please help.
