That makes me more anxious than pumped up.

This is what I'll be humming to myself during the break.

Does LG get harder in the newer tests?

I remembering reading on here numerous times that the more recent LG sections are easier than the older ones. I might be wrong, but I hope I'm right.

I've heard 59 and 60 were really hard. Maybe that trend is reversing?

That's kind of funny, I ordered PT60 on Friday and it shipped Saturday even though I didn't preorder.

Burn LSAC down IMO.

I went to Vegas over the weekend and was worried that I wouldn't do well today on PT 35.
Luckily, as long as you refresh yourself and don't take too long of a break (I went two days without any practice) you can still do well!

I did a section of LR last night, some LR by type, some games, but no RC. Was kind of scared about tonight, but I got a 178. -2 LR -2 RC -0 LG -0 LR. It's nice to see some consistency, but can't slack up!

PS Good luck on your PT tomorrow! Try doing a warm up before you do it though :)

Doing a diagnostic this saturday so I'm hammering down for that. Reading comp has been kicking my ass lately, but I've been getting -0 on LG lately also. Logical Reasoning is something that I could always improve and I cant wait to see how things will be for the diag. I got a 160 on my last diag and I'm shooting for a 165 by october. I feel good guys, especially considering my original diag was a 144 :)

Has anyone considered doing the LR sections backwards? Maybe I'm nuts, but since the harder ones (and the ones I'm more likely to miss) are at the end, wouldn't it make sense to start there and work backwards? I usually finish, but if I'm short on time, I'm more like to be able to answer question #5 in 50 seconds than question #23, right?

Then again, if you are having time problems, you would have those either way, if you started from the end, this time you would have no time at all for the first few, presumably.

Way too counter-intuitive for my taste. I work forwards, in order, usually. Lol.

Do not do this. Suppose it takes you 30 minutes to do problems 6 through 20, whether working forward or backward. With your first five minutes, you can do problems 1 through 5 or 21 through 25. Suppose the earlier problems only take you 0:45, but the later problems take you 1:15. If you started from the beginning, you could do all five of the first problems in 3:45 and have 1:15 left over to do problem 21. If you start from the end, you spend 6:15 on the last five problems and don't even have time to complete 6 through 20. Beyond this, the last few problems aren't the hardest; ~17 through 23 are tougher, or so I've been told.

And it doesn't seem worth the increased risk of bubbling errors.

Yoga pants, tank top, and pumas. Will take a hoodie in case I get cold. I'll probably eat at Einstein Bros. that morning too - always treat myself before any kind of test.

I'm wearing yoga pants too. And probably an Alabama sweatshirt because #1 It's cold in Illilnois in October and #2 It's gameday. =)

Layers. I can't stress this enough. You never know if the air conditioner will be broken, or on way too high. Try taking an LSAT when you're shivering. It sucks.

Question:

I took October 08 test yesterday and did surprisingly well time wise on the LRs. The first one I finished with 3 mins extra, but got 9 wrong; on the second one I finished with 7 mins extra, but only got 4 wrong. It seems that the more time I spend on a section the more I get incorrect. Is this normal or am I just a freak?

You guys know that hoodies/ anything with a hood is forbidden in the testing room, right?
