In this "Mailbag Monday" edition of The Dominate Test Prep Podcast, we answer the following question submitted by Anne:

"It seems kind of silly but how much time do you suggest people spend looking over questions they got wrong or even questions they got right?"

It's not a silly question, Anne. Quite to the contrary, practice is a key component of preparing well for your standardized test, and a big part of effective practice is reviewing your results and learning from your mistakes. How do you do that? I share three thoughts in this week's show including my "L-M-H Technique" that you can use when doing blocks of practice problems or taking practice tests to help narrow your focus during your review sessions and ensure that you're in a better position to get more right answers the next time around. Enjoy!

Note: If you discover that part of the reason you're getting questions wrong is due to careless errors, be sure to listen to Episode 11 where we share nine ways to avoid making careless errors.
