Hi everyone,

If I get a practice question correct e.g. on a linear practice drill within the book and the template I have is a replica of what the answer sheet says do you guys suggest still reading the lengthier explanations to the answer choice ?

Hi Leslie,

Thanks for the post, and yes, we do recommend reviewing questions you get right! Even if you got a question right and completed it correctly, there still may be more to learn! Please refer to the below blog topics that discuss this very point. :)

Thanks a lot for this Stephanie!

I see the importance of reviewing but now that I am on mini-passage drills for reading comprehension is the same method also suggested?

I ask again because I can see a learning process outcome occurring from reviewing LG and LR but since reading is testing your comprehension on very selective passages I'm wondering if it's worth spending time on reviewing all the answers even if you got it right since the review will analyze your comprehension of that specific section (not sure if I'm making sense)

Hi Leslie,

I still recommend reviewing all the answer choices in RC because you aren't really using it to learn about the passage, you are using it to learn about your own brain. You want to figure out why you might have left something as a contender, even if you didn't select it. You want to think about if there was a way to do the question faster than you initially did. Was this one you should have jumped back to the passage for? Where? Was it one that you should have known from VIEWSTAMP? Were there specific notes you took while reading the passage that helped you in that question? Would tracking something different in your notes be more beneficial? Practice tests and drills aren't about getting questions right or wrong--they're about helping you learn as much as you can about yourself and the test before your exam.

Hope that helps!
