wow i fail

Postby goosey » Sat Jan 30, 2010 2:07 pm

I just took dec 09--the last test I haven't taken yet--and got. 162. I was practicing at 167 before getting my 161. This test seemed SO hard compared to what I've been practicing. And timing killed me too for some reason. Got one week left. What should I do!?

seriously though, it shouldn't be a cause for concern. do a few problems or sections if it helps you feel better, but if you've worked that hard it's only a mental game for you at this point.

I received a low score for my range before I went in for the Sept 09. I ended up testing at average.

Dec. '09 was a killer, and it was really 100% the LR (got a 165 on this test AND also had trouble with the timing). The LG and the RC were much easier than the Sept. '09 test. I took another test (I think PT51) since and got a 170 and spent today working on difficult LR questions. Review the questions you got wrong, do a bunch of difficult LR problems and it should help.

I'm also re-doing the LR sections from this test the next few days to see if there is any improvement.

There was a reason Dec. had a -14 curve.

Yeah LR1 I got -7 and LR2 I got -4..-4 is more my range but -7 just took me by surprise. I found RC much more difficult than what I had been practicing.

Games were not bad but I ran out of time and couldn't do the last 3 so I got -6..I wound up missing 3 of the questions I completed.

I have no idea why I found that RC so difficult--its usuaally my best section but I got -7 on it :-o

Killer, killer test.

I just did that test and for me the LR section kicked my ass too, no worries, I have been scoring like 171-174 and then I took that test and october's and I was like fuck me, LR burn in a fire!
