How should I spend my last 4 days of studying?

Postby guinness » Sun Dec 05, 2010 3:10 pm

Just took PT 61 under timed, real settings this morning. It was my highest PT (despite a blow up on games due to a miswritten rule).

I'm averaging around -3 on each LR section, -2 on RC, and -4 on LG. I wasn't planning on doing another test before the 11th, but instead just drilling games / LR.

Is this a viable strategy or should I do another PT?

do a recent PT on tuesday, unless you have already done 50-61

If you are happy with how you did on PT 61 and won't second guess yourself by not taking another one then I would call it good and do sections. Drill the hell out of LG/LR and it could pay off in that short of time.

just don't study the day before the test.

Yeah I've done 50-61 but still have some of the earlier tests at my disposal. I've decided against doing another PT and will instead savor my PT high on my last PT and drill the living sh*t out of games / LR until Thursday. Friday I'm going to put away all of my books, try to stay of TLS, meditate and take this damn thing Saturday.

If I were you, I'd review my last few PTs and find the areas where I struggle. Do focused work (i.e., focus on those problem types) accordingly. Also throw in 1-2 PTs to keep your mental stamina intact.

dont "study" if you go at it like "I have x many days until the test, what to do?" you will get nervous. You are already scoring well, just maybe look at what is causing you the biggest trouble and go into the test with no worries. Although its echoed a lot on here burnout is real and I would bet the reason we see so many ppl score below PT average is their mentality on test day/the week before.
