PT 61 LR, for those who took it

Postby niederbomb » Mon Dec 06, 2010 11:07 pm

Was the LR unusually difficult, or was it just me? I only missed -5 combined on what are usually my weakest sections (LG and RC), but I missed -7 on LR and, very uncharacteristically, ran out of time on one section.

This is scary because, previous to this, 4 of my last 6 LR sections were perfect. I was counting on LR for my score.

I wonder if it was just me, or if there was something with the test. I know I didn't sleep well last night or eat the morning of the PT, but these are likely to be factors when I take the real thing also.

I also haven't done LR in about 5 days because I was working on LG. Could this be a factor?

170 is only barely high enough for where I want to go.

I had a really rough first section of LR (-6) really good second (-1) a great RC (-2) and a disappointing LG (-5). This was a 5 section test FWIW.

I thought that first LR was rough but not totally brutal...

I had an ok RC (-2), an outstanding LG (-3), a disastrous first LR (-5), and a slightly less disastrous second LR (-2).

RC: 2, 11

LR 1: 11, 13, 15, 18, (25 omitted)

LG: 15, 16 (17 omitted)

LR 2: 24, 25

This is coming from someone who went -7 LG, -5 RC and -0 LR on PT 57.

There were a few tricky questions, but overall LR for me wasn't remarkably difficult.
LG got me with nurses taking me like 9 hours to complete for some reason.

I guess everyone's different. I skipped runners to do nurses then ended up going -3 on runners and -0 on the rest.

I missed some sort of deduction regarding the relationship between U, Q, and S. I'll look at it again after work.

...I actually found the LR sections surprisingly easy. -6 combined. The LG and RC sections felt about average.
