Day 11 - Fun with PR CAT 1 Analysis
I spent the last 3.5 hours reviewing my previous day's CAT exam. For the second time, I filled out this spreadsheet to track my correct answers and errors, classifying each type of problem. Very tiring, but I'm really happy I did it.
The cool thing about doing a Princeton Review test on CD is that you get to print out a nice analysis table at the end. It has cool statistics like the amount of time you spent on each problem (down to the second) and the percent of questions you got right for certain types of problems (problem solving, data sufficiency, etc.).
I found some conflicting results in comparing my second practice test to the first one a took two weeks ago. On the second test, I performed very well in areas where I had previously performed poorly. Unfortunately, on the second test I also performed poorly in areas where I had previously performed well.
This situation is frustrating because I can't readily identify where I am weak or strong. I guess I'll need more data from future tests to determine that.
Until then, I'll assume that I'm weak in every subject. Yes, the glass is half empty for me.
SUMMARY OF DAY 11 WORK:
1. Documented and analyzed errors from previous day's CAT using this spreadsheet.
RECAP OF DAY 11 INSIGHTS:
1. Princeton Review provides great statistics on your performance when you take a test off PR's CD.
2. Analyzing your test is painful but important to do.
