I took TPR class and the guy suggested do the first 6 passages really well, and the last passage just guess on all the questions.
I then sat in on another verbal class, and the lady told us to get through all the passages but skip questions that are really difficult.
I just try to get through all the passages and try to answer all the questions because its really difficult to come back to questions b/c you have to remember what the main idea of that passage was.
I don't agree with that first "strategy". Maybe if you're only hoping for a 9 or 10, but if you bomb one passage you won't do better than 10, 11 if you're really lucky. Heck, if you get one or two wrong every passage and then blow the last one you're looking at an 8 at best, if not 7. If going by the AAMC guideline, 4 or 5 questions wrong will eliminate you from 11+ contention, so this strategy settles for being barely above test taker average and only at the mean of matriculants for most schools rather than learning how to attack VR and conquer it. Its a defeatist mentality and its one thing you can never have in life, whether it be sports, your career, or a test... not pushing through to your best possible capability is unacceptable. Anything less than a 9 will absolutely sink your application. I know several people who had great GPA's and mid 30 MCAT scores but a bombed VR section who had to apply more than once or retake.
Try your best on every passage. Its a matter of practice, practice, and more practice to build stamina and to anticipate the types of questions and what these questions want you focus on. Learning how to discern wrong answer choices and bring your options down to two, and understanding the subtle differences in wording will help you break the 10 barrier. Look for the author's conclusions and evidence. Always ask yourself why is the author presenting the material in this way or order, what is the message he or she is trying to get across and why does it matter.
Don't let my first paragraph scare or upset you, I'm just frustrated that any prep teacher would ever suggest such a strategy.
