Congratulations on your score! I have some follow up questions about your SC, CR, and RC experience.
When you intially looked at the question did you feel like you "instantly" saw the error in the original question during the test?Or did you have to go through the "internal checklist" - is it testing subject/verb or parallelism ora verb tense, etc.
I stopped doing the instant identification thing because it was a bad habit for me. I forced myself, by practice, to identify the type of error, if any, in every question and then look at the answer choices. In the answers, I was able to eliminate choices based on the MGMAT rules for the most part. Even idiom-based sentences had 2-3 clearly wrong answer choices based on one of the MGMAT rules or clarity/concision principles. I had the same strategy for evey SC question, whether the first or the 40th.
I read your post about using official LSAT material. Did you finish each CR section within the prescribed time - 26 questions in 35 minutes? How were you doing? What was your strike rate like in first 15 questions. The last 10?
I was able to finish LSAT sections after doing some 6-7 sets and failing to complete each of them. My hit rate was always between 21 to 25 (85 - 100%). Towards the end, I made 1 mistake at the most.
I struggle to go with a 2 min per question pace. Did you see any "syllogism" type of questions in the GMAT. I hate the "logic" type of questions. A --> B and A ---> C so in order for conclusion to be true, etc, etc.
GMAT does not typically have the LSAT-type Hard Logic/Deductive questions. The nearest GMAT equivalents are the ones where you are given statistics and then asked to infer something. The correct answer choice here is the one which can be directly derived numerically from the question stem. I'm talking about the ones where, for instance, it says - "Between 1979 and 1984, Croydon County's total income rose 4% while its manufacturing sector grew by 2.7%. In neighboring Cook county, ..."These ones are easy because you can quickly eliminate the answer choices which attribute causality or make generalizations such as "Manufacturing jobs are an important source of income..." etc.
How was your timing for RCs in LSAT? I average at about 2 min per question. Feel okay with the strike rate. How did you handle the "EXCEPT" type of questions. I struggle with these and would like to pick your brain on how you handled these questions? Would you mind using the following as an example to demonstrate your "methodlogy" for these questions: http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=18739
For LSAT RCs, I averaged something like 10-13 minutes for a 60 line passage with 6 questions. So 2 min per sounds about right. As far as the "except" questions, it is just POE. I usually start with Choice E because most of these EXCEPT Qs tend to have the right answer near the end or so I felt. I'll try to take a look at that thread in a bit.
