I don't think it's in 50-60 but the game with the bus stops and people getting off was horrible. In 50-60 I'd definitely say Dinos and Interns.

This one was from just 2 years ago I think. Some people didn't have much of a problem, but I hated this game, along with Dinos I'd say the it's the most difficult of the last 4-5 years.

Dinosaurs, definitely. I was well-practiced when I did it in PT60, so I managed to solve it, but it hurt my brain.

For the 99% of americans not entirely versed in every shade of the color wheel, an average of 30 seconds per testtaker was spent wondering what the f a mauve dinosaur was and why the hell somebody would choose that specific type of dinosaur to put on a test when the other 3 colors were green, red, and yellow.

Dinosaurs wasn't on PT60? not trying to argue just wondering if you meant to say a different game or different PT

Dinosaurs was easy for me (on a PT not the real thing). I think it will really depend on what type of game YOU find hardest. I always thought the non-traditional games were easiest but that the advanced linear games were the hardest/most time consuming for me.

It's all a blur to me at this point... I meant whichever one it was on.

Yeah... 57... I hated that whole test.

YES! Exactly. Mulch, Dinos, etc. were EASY. But anything that requires lots of writing and complicated diagrams is so hard.

I especially like conditional games like the courses game in PT 59 because they don't require any diagramming at all, really, just drawing arrows. They don't test my (inability) to draw straight lines.

I hated that game. It's from PT 31 (June 2000).


I took that PT a couple of days ago. Ran out of time on the LG (which NEVER happens) because of that stupid question.

Don't remember which test but I thought snakes/lizards was pretty tough. If PT 60 was the June '10 test then I got lucky and didn't struggle with those games (missed 1 on mulch for the whole section), however, if the experimental games section I had would have been the real deal I would be applying to different schools. I remember one game about air travel that really threw me off. Hope you guys don't get any of those or attack them better than I did.

From one of the games in the 30s -- the stupid birds in the stupid forest. WTF is a shrike and why can't the stupid G birds get along with anyone?

I actually found the games in PT 61 to be really really easy. They didn't give me any problems at all on test day. Games are ususally hit or miss for me - interns raped me, dinosaurs was okay, school busses was terrible, mulches was easy.

I actually really liked the dinos game. I took it before I knew it was supposed to be terrible, and it didn't give me any problems.

I did, however, have massive issues with the one about movies- not sure it was 50-60 though. Harvest, Greed, Limelight or something?

I just did that 1 for the third time a few minutes ago! It was June 2007, and I didn't have too many problems even the first time. Game 3--about the Guadalupe, Trinidad, Martinique, and Jamaica--on the other hand....hate!

The invisibility game was the hardest I've ever seen.

I found dinos to be really easy but what I make up for in games I lack in RC. I would say be prepared for the rule replacement question types. They may only have 1-2 of these but 1-2 questions can make or break your score.

These types of questions are certainly more challenging than most.
