    Not sure if this is the right forum..

    For VR true/false/can't tell questions, I usually read the question, skim through the passage looking for the keyword, and then answer.. I usually get them done with some time left and get the majority of them right usually. Does anybody have any tips on better ways to do those questions to maximise my marks on them? And for statement questions, I'm not really sure about how to do it.. Do I read the passage first then answer the question or do I read the question then skim the passage (or will i have to read it rather than skim), or something else?

    With AR I take quite a lot of time.. Any good tips for that? I recently got the ISCMedical 1000 questions UKCAT book (haven't really done much), does anybody know if that's very good at improving time management and helping with understanding how to approach the different sections properly?

    Thanks in advance ^^
