I struggle with IR - it both a bit of quantitative and a bit of verbal, but first I spend too much time to understand IR particularly tables and graphs my average time about 4 minutes per question is which too long and even although I spend a lot of time the score on official EA preparation is 40-60%, where really 40-50 % is about graphs... Going through IRs drains me mentally and I can't understand how I can improve it. Acquired additional questions pack, but what else than practicing I can do? Problem is that practice questions won't be repeated....

Hi Erjan_S! Happy to help :-)

First, I'd recommend checking out this article, which has tons of tips for IR questions :-)

When you review the problems after, are you able to figure out why the problems took you so long. When you say that it takes you a long time to understand the IR questions, is that an English/Reading Comprehension issue? If this is the the case, I'd encourage you to read actively every day.

Or, are you focusing on the wrong details? Perhaps you need to look at the questions first to help you focus on the information. Answering questions multiple time definitely isn't a bad thing! Analyze each question afterward to figure out how you could have approached it better. Keep an error log. That's really the key to success -- recognizing your own patterns and learning to think like the test makers.

Finally, you'll find a lot more practice questions and strategies by going through the articles here.

I hope that's helpful! :-)
-Carolyn
