What I mean is in one passage I got 4 "d's" in one section (verbal) and I was pretty confident that I answered them all correctly.

Can anyone shine some light on whether or not there is a maximum for how many answers can be in a row? I thought three was the maximum.

-thanks

the maximum is however many questions there are... it's ok to have 4 in a row

I'm not sure if there have ever been 4 in a row...but statistictly speaking, it should happen occasionally.

Kaplan review book says there will never ever be more than 3 of the same in a row.

NOT TRUE
Kaplan is full of B-S
There were 4 C's in a row on the Oct. 11 SAT1 verbal

but were they right? i can put 20 C's in a row and 10 of them will probably wrong.

whew! Good thing I didn't fall for believing that there couldn't be just "three in a row," because when I got 4 in a row TWO times, both on verbal sections in the test, I started second guessing myself, but fortunately I changed kept them how they were (I felt confident I was right on those questions), and I scored 38/40 on the CR last test.

Wutdeh, I had 4 Ds in a row for the analogies. On the last section with the 2 passages, I had 5 Es! (#6,7,8,9,10) and I also had E for #13. I was pretty confident with my answers, though! Gaaah kind of scared. Actually, really scared. Don't know if I should cancel or not.

otterpop, on the last section with two passages in the woods I think I had "4 d's" in a row, in th same area that you had yours - not five though. SHould be nothing to worry about if you were confident. I shoudn't have tried second-guessing my abilities - and I'm glad I didnt change my answers even though I was paranoid.

Take it from someone who got 38/40 CR on october 2003 test. Dont fret about it, I'm sure you did fine.
