Quick Write 080911 “Read ‘em all? - Revisited”

In my yesterday’s QW post, I said that you should read all the sentences and passages on the TOEIC reading section to answer questions with accuracy while managing the given time effectively. I reconfirmed this idea after I took the July TOEIC test. On the test day, I solved Part 5 and 6 at a regular pace and finished 52 questions a little before 14:00, spending 13-4 minutes. It is possible to complete Part 5 and 6 within 15 minutes even though you read all the 40 sentences with 15-20 words each in Part 5 and 4 passages with 100-120 words each in Part 6 while realizing more accuracy rate than answered by reading only around the blanks, I guarantee. Actually, it takes you only 20 or 30 seconds to read one 100-120 word Part 6 passage if you have about 200 wpm (= word per minute). Then, at around 14:00, I moved onto Part 7 questions. In 10 minutes or so, I experienced a sudden halt on one single passage with the question which required me to locate skillfully hidden clues in the passages and draw the conclusion from inferences. I reread the passage multiple times and tried to find out the evidence to verify my answer, but it made me off the track of good, efficient time management. In retrospect, I should’ve read the passage with much more attention so as not to reread it many times in the process of eliminating three dubious choices and leaving the correct one out. Recently, there appear more and more questions which require test-takers to read the whole passages with a good deal of accuracy and examine four choices very carefully. I think it is one good trend of the TOEIC test in order to measure test-takers’ reading comprehension skills endorsing that mere techniques or strategies will no longer work on more and more questions.
