155 Diagnostic - Possible to break 170 on test day?

Postby Er6297 » Tue Sep 28, 2010 11:58 am

So I started back in June with a 155 Diagnostic then took a Princeton Review Course and got my score up to 166. Since then I've done pretty much all the PT's but I always score 168-170. Obviously, I am happy with my improvement but a little disappointed that I can't break into the 172 and up club. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to improve my score. I know it seems trivial but it could mean the difference between NYU and Fordham and I do notttttt want to go to Fordham.

My score breaks down as follows:
LG = 0-1 average incorrect
LR = 1-3 average incorrect per section
RC = 4-6 average incorrect

I always refer back to old tests to see what I got wrong to learn from my mistakes but my score still has not moved, even after like 20 PTs.

Please any advice will helpp, I just need to move my score 2-3 points.
Thanks!

Don't do whole PT's all the time. Drill, drill, drill RC and, to a lesser extent, LR.

I've noticed I always stagnate when I take full PT's in a row (-0-2, LR and RC, -3-9 LG), but spending a few days just drilling LG (my weakest section), and then doing a PT leads to real increases.
