Hi,

I have a few questions on verbal practice.

1. do you immediately review the answers, esp. those that you did wrong, after you complete some verbal questions in a book? Or do you leave to check the answers afterwards? I find that after I complete all the questions, I no longer have the energy to directly review the answers where I am wrong. But if I leave them there for the next day, I almost will forget how and why I do them wrongly.

2. how do you learn from the mistakes of CR and RC? For SC, there is something grammatical I can directly learn, but for CR and RC? I can only spot the strategy of how to do CR and RC, but they are all those old strategies that the book has already pointed out. It seems to me that I don't learn anything from my CR and RC mistakes, yet they are the most difficult parts for me.

Thanks a lot.

FOR THIS KIND OF PROBLEM DO THE SMALL SETS, SAY 10 OR 20 PROBLEMS, SO YOU DON'T EXAUST YOURSELF

FOR CR, UNDERSTAND WHAT ARE THE PARTS OF THE ARGUMENT (PREMISE, CONCLUSION, ETC)... READ THE OG EXPLANATIONS AS WELL!!! THEY DON'T EXPLICITLY SAY THE ANSWER IS "OUT OF SCOPE", YET THEY SAY SOMETHING LIKE "THE ARGUMENT IS NOT CONCERNED ABOUT X" -> translation: OUT OF SCOPE

SAME IDEA FOR RC -> READ THE EXPLANATION IN THE OG AND SEE HOW THEY REASON EVERY ANSWER CHOICE, THAT WAY YOU ARE STRUCTURING YOUR THOUGHT PROCESS BY THE SAME TOKEN THAT TEST WRITERS DO.

Thanks a lot.
