Thou Shalt Sometimes Eliminate All Five Answer Choices

Just because you have to read all five choices on Logical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension doesn't mean you have to like them. As a matter of fact, you should probably hate most of them. If you don't occasionally dislike all five answer choices, you're not being critical enough. High scorers are super-critical of everything they read on the test, especially  the answer choices. (Four out of five of them, after all, are wrong by definition.) Don't settle for an imperfect answer unless you've already eliminated all five. When this does happen, you'll have to lower the bar a little bit, start back at the beginning, and choose the best of a bad lot. It's a hassle, but if it doesn't happen once in a while then you're doing it wrong.
