Okay I think I've identified a major problem I have when it comes the the multiple choice Identifying Sentence Errors.
When a sentence is suppose to have "No Error," I'll usually just mark one of the words as wrong because I think it sounds funny and therefore I'll trick myself into believing it's a diction error. This accounted for 2 out of my 3 errors on my last practice test!
So my question is that how often do diction errors usually appear on the SAT? (Because obviously it's a lot less than I think) My guess is about 1; is that correct? Can anyone point out any diction error problems in the Blue Book or know any common ones on the SAT?
Also, any tips on how to be confidently put down "No Error" on this section? I for some reason am too wary of their being an error and so I will try to justify one!!! This is a major problem of mine! How many times do No Errors usually show up on the Ident. Sent. Errors Section?
