Re-taking old tests

Postby overunderachiever » Sat Sep 18, 2010 5:52 pm

I took PT's 59-56 during my prep course, which ended about 3 months ago. Now that the October test is nearing, should I retake those since they are the most current PT's I have, or should I just take PT 49 (I used up PTs 50-55 recently) and work my way down?

Do 40-49. I hear they are pretty similar to 50-59.

I would take the 40s I think its important to take in as many new questions in as possible before test day.


Sorry to hijack this thread but wanted to throw another question out there that is sort of similar....

I was having a hard time doing logic games and was did days were I would just do game after game. As I am taking prep tests I am getting many games I have already done before. Not that I remember the answers but is this not helping me in terms of being prepared when it comes to test day?

Take 44-49 and then 57-60.

I would definitely put a higher priority on taking older, unused tests than I would on taking newer, used tests. Although it might not be a bad idea to re-do the LGs and comparative reading passages from PT 56-59.

RC is generally tougher on the 50's. Also, the LG sections from the 40's are a freaking joke. IMHO, of course.

+1 on the LG part. I don't really remember the RC (doesn't seem that bad in the 50's), but the LG's seem slightly tougher (not sure if it's just me, but it seems like PT's <20 and >50 have the toughest LG's).

I would take 45-49 and 60. If a particular section type (e.g., LG) troubles you, I would repeat all of those sections from the 50's exams.

No no, no no.

See, the magic formula is PT's 18-23, 46-53, then back track to 24-30, then do 54+ in reverse order and mix in broken up sections from 30-45...

If you don't do it like that in that order you are doomed! :P

Seriously, what is up with this type of thinking? :?: Prepping to build the skillz to do it with any test form or not?
