Sentence Completions
Without practice, you won’t master Sentence Completions. You’ve learned quite a bit since you picked up this little book, but now comes the hard part—you have to apply it to testlike items. You’ll find several practice sets at the end of this book. Here are some tips for getting the most out of these items:
  • Do not time yourself on the first set. When you begin, don’t worry about time at all. Take as long as you need to work through each set.
  • Read the explanations for all items, regardless of whether you got them right or wrong. This last part is critical—always read all the explanations for each set’s items. The idea is to develop skills that will help you get points as quickly as possible. Most important, just because you got a point doesn’t mean you got it in the most efficient manner. The overarching goal is to apply the methods you’ve learned. Whether you get all, some, or none of the practice items right doesn’t matter.
After the first set, you may want to start paying attention to time. Certainly, by the actual test, you’ll want to give yourself about a minute or so per item.
