Question ?? [#permalink] New post 09 Apr 2009, 05:52
My weakness is verbal as I am an international student.
My plan is to study 5 RCs, and 30 questions of CR and SC everyday.
However,according to my error log, whenver I'm done with
one question type and move on to other one,e.g. from CR to SC.
I always got wrong answers from the2-3 first questions.
Sometimes I do not understand the question even I can know all vocabs.
I noticed that I focus on different things when I read different types of qustions.
So in a few first questions , I get the wrong answers.

How to solve this problem?

Thanks,

Thanks,



Very interesting observation - so it is almost as though your ear/mind is learning a pattern to one type of questions and it takes a little while to switch back and forth.
Have you tried just focusing on one question type for a few days or a week instead of mixing them?

Finally, what books are you using?

My 2 cents..I useed to have a similar problem initially as I am an international student too and struggled with Verbal a lot..My suggestion will be to give it some more time and practise is the key her..practise as much as possible.
