It used to be that diversity/minority passages were simple. 1st paragraph, critics of Miles Davis -- oo I KNOW the author is going to defend Miley boy like crazy and talk about how he's so great. Oh asian americans need to strengthen ties to the homeland. Native american basket weaving rocks.

Now its Noguchi in PT 59 with questions that aren't straightforward and closely worded answer choices...

RC is just getting ridiculous. Thinking about doing PTs consisting of just five RC sections M-W this week

LG from PT 56:
game 2 or game 3 (not sure) took me 5-6 minutes
game 4 took me 13-14 mins :shock: ??
Thankfully I still finished in time, score: -1

game 4 wasn't hard. I don't know why it took a while...I'm feeling a little burnt out from LSAT today so that could be it, or that it's late at night.

I just realized I hadn't done the RC on PT 56, -2 (#13, Kinship and #24, parallel reasoning, French Women's Education), not great compared to the 30's and 40's, but better than I had been doing.

Can anyone confirm if PT 56 RC is easier or more difficult than most recent PT's? If it's on par, my improvement plan is working; if not, I'm scared of what might happen on October 10.

I went -6 on PT 59 RC and -5 on PT 55 RC. That's not acceptable.

LG is my recurring weakness, and RC was supposed to be my great firewall.

I went -0 on PT 60 RC and -3 on PT 59. PT 56 RC last night -6
The passages weren't bad in PT 56 except kinship but I had done it before so the PASSAGE didn't throw me. The questions/answer choices in PT 56 were pretty tricky in my opinion though.

On the topic of PT57:
People keep saying Cather and fractals...went -1 combined on those today.
Dinos I'll concede was tricky, but I went -0 in 9 minutes so it's not impossible to do.

I usually enjoy the science passages because they strike me as interesting (-0 on strawberry mites, fractals, etc.), but liberal artsy passages generally kill me...they're just so boring. :shock: The Naguchi passage wasn't terribly difficult in itself, but the A/C's had some very subtle nuances. That subtlety plus the sheer boringness of the material combine to make it one of the more difficult passages I've encountered.

Did PT 55 RC just now. -2.
Got -4 when I did it a year ago.
Surprisingly didn't miss any on talk-story this time.
Thought it was easier overall than some of the other exams in the 50s but some questions/answer choices definitely show some weirdness (comparing cloth to language mixing)
I also had to consider answer choices closely on purple loosestrife and speculative bubble.
Also, it took me all the time to finish while I usually have 2-3 minutes left over to check through RC (PTs in the 40s).
