Such as misreading questions, mostly on math.


I look back on questions and I see that conceptually, I know how to work the problem, however due to just careless errors I get about 50% more wrong than I should.


Even though I go into the practice tests totally aware I need to be careful, this keeps happening, any tips?

same thing was happening to me in the math sections.

1) read the question more carefully.
I noticed that i would compute something other than what the problem was asking for.

2) try writing more on the paper...
