I've been practicing the angle ranking on Crack DAT PAT for over a week now and I find that the tests are not that hard but the practice questions IMPOSSIBLE to do. The questions with 6 degrees and 5 degrees difference are manageable but doing a 3 degree difference for difficulty is nearly impossible for me. So far the practice that I've had with the angle ranking has not changed how I often just do not see a difference in the angles at all. In fact, I can't even get my mind to wrap around how some of the angles are bigger than the others when they look smaller to my eyes! I'm gonna post a picture as an example.

Now my question is what should I be practicing for the DAT? Which is the most useful, the practice tests 1-10, or the practice mode angle ranking questions 3, 4, 5, or 6 degrees? I'm not sure which difficulty the actual DAT will be testing on.

Also any tips on problems like the picture I posted? Angle 2 looks like a way bigger angle than angle 3 yet it's supposedly smaller. I feel like 3/4 of the questions that mess with my mind like this lol.

That question looks extremely easy....
I think DATBootcap angle ranking might be more difficult in my opinion.
You have to play with the answer choices.

For example, you can see that either 1 or 3 is the largest. Clearly looking at it, 1 has a larger angle. Choice B eliminated. Next, look at A,C,D, notice that lowest angle is either 2 or 4. Personally, I can clearly see that 4 is smaller than 2. Choice C eliminated.

Now you are down to A or D. 50/50 chance if you can't tell the difference. Find a method that works for you. I can just visualize it and see that 3 is greater.

What i would do is visualize an invisible right angle and I see which gets most closet to it
