    There's a few tactics out there such as grid method. But it really comes down to practice and getting your mind accustomed to visualizing it. One thing I've been doing that helps is taking a Post-It note, drawing a 4 x 4 grid on it and using it as a practice aid, sometimes while sitting on the toilet lol. Half punched holes are a problem no more!

    PRACTICE!! On my first 2 practice tests, I have like 7-9 corrects on hole punching, but after 3 or 4 tests, surprisingly 13-14 corrects. Use your fingers and hands to keep track of the holding and always look back at the initial fold. I have Crack DAT (most expensive version) that has load of hole punching. If you have one, then practice and practice.

    Yea, I just picked up some post-its. I too have CD PAT Royal Flush. I'll just keep hitting hole punching harder. Thanks.
