#### SC: Practice questions by group of how many?

Sat May 03, 2008 8:04 am
Hello all,

When I practice SC, I tend to do 5 questions and then correct/review my answers. I proceed that way because, during the correction, I can remember what my reasoning was for each question and compare it with what the books says. However, it does not "simulate" real test conditions because I have to remain focus only 10 min.

My question is: how many questions to do at the same time? Is it best to proceed by large (20-30 questions), medium (10-20) or small (5-10) groups? Why?

Thanks

I recommend larger sets, 30-40 at a time. The reason why is that it can help you get used to the pacing/length of the verbal section.
