Is it enough to just only do the problems in TBR and review what I got wrong/right? Or should I spend time reading the text as well?
I just received my TBR ochem, chem, and physics.
whens your test...thats alot of material to study....it took me a while to get through it all....
Have you seen a lot of improvement in your scores?
I don't feel like reading it because it's so dense compared to TPR and EK...
So I was just wondering if I will get enough out of it by doing the problems only...
I wish I could find the thread, but someone actually counted the pages of text in the EK books versus the BR book after you remove practice questions (if you look at the BR books, you'll see about 20-30 sample questions incorporated into the text). I think it came out that BR was shorter by a few pages than EK. So the actually reading of text is about the same.
Where BR materials are useful are the passages and questions, because the answer explanations show how to think your way through questions using minimal information and mostly test logic. Those are what make BR books invaluable (if you ask most people).
It was a conversation between malayna and someone (protacti-something - can't remember) about buying more material outside of TBR practice. Having both sets myself, it takes me longer to go through EK sections for some reason in PS compared to TBR sections. I only do TBR for PS now because they have everything you need.
