Using 5 Section PTs

Postby gatorbait » Wed Jun 16, 2010 2:20 pm

Simple (maybe dumb) question...But does everybody pretty much just pull a section (or sometimes 2) from different PTs to add on to the 4 sections and provide for a true 5-Section PT? Is that the preferred method for increasing endurance? ...do you just kinda see how many you get wrong on the "add-on" section, as it wouldn't be factored into the score?

Thanks

Honestly you get so pumped during the test that endurance isnt a problem (it wasnt for me) and I only did a 5 section PT once. The rest were four.

I felt like this was equivalent to practicing bleeding so and I didn't want to waste PT's so I waited until there were 2 weeks before the actual test to start doing this. I was worried that knowing which section was experimental would make it less realistic so in order to force myself to focus I broke a full PT down and used one section from it each time I took a full prep test. That way I could score it after 4 tests and it helped me to not cheat myself. I definitely don't think this is worth doing throughout the entire length of your prep. I would wait til the test is within a couple weeks then start this.

Endurance isn't usually a problem. Adrenaline can be.
