I hate angle ranking

    I was the same way. Up until a couple weeks ago I would also get around a 6/15. I never really liked the rapid glance technique, but now I use it and just trust my gut. When things get tough, I'll cover the two angles with my thumb down to the vertex and see which is better with rapid glance. Give it a shot. I haven't missed a single angle question on full length test 1,2, or 3 using these methods. Haven't done laptop or hill for any of these tests, only the methods I just told you. Other than that, I just say practice practice practice.

    EDIT: You cannot touch the screen on the actual test so nevermind

      I would be careful with that. Touching the screen is warned against by the ADA... you may be able to get away with it at your testing center, but it sounds very risky.

        I thought we aren't allowed to cover up or touch the screen during the actual exam?

        Also, I have the exact same issue, I am doing pretty well on all other sections but for angles im getting like 5-9/15 right lol. I've tried different techniques but nothing seems to work when all the angles are rotated in different ways

          Since you can't touch the screen, do you all think you'd be able to do an air-thumb thing? I'm talking like a foot or so from the monitor so that you're not that "I'm not technically touching it" kid. Tried it on a few angles just now and it kinda works... might be good for a pinch
