Day 18 - Kaplan Data Sufficiency
Today I reviewed Kaplan's Data Sufficiency, chapter 8, pages 193-211. I also looked at the data sufficiency lesson on the Kaplan CD, and took a practice DS quiz at the end of chapter 8, pages 212-239.
Like yesterday's material, Kaplan didn't reveal any useful strategies for tackling data sufficiency. It hammered in only 2 main points: be sure to read each DS statement SEPARATELY, and don't waste time doing calculations. Just skim this chapter.
But man, I got my ass kicked when I attempted the DS practice quiz. I scored about 75% right, but made far too many careless errors. For some reason, I can't get myself to read the question stems carefully. I simply do not feel confident when I'm working through these types of problems.
But I'm glad that I'm identifying this area of trouble now. It will serve to guide my more targeted studying that will happen later.
