#### Analyzing CR questions

Sat Jan 05, 2008 4:50 pm
I think there is no point in analyzing the answer for CR questions which you correctly answer .. I have seen that if my answer is correct the explanation doesn't say anything more than what i was thinking. Also the ones i got wrong were because of my misinterpretation of the argument because the problem was hard and the time was insufficient.. So what is the point in analyzing an answer explanation which i got wrong because of not enough time...

Anyone else think the same ?

I think the only thing one should focus on is increasing speed while maintaining or increasing accuracy !

There have been times when I got the correct answer but I was just lucky because the reasoning I used did not match with the explanation.
