Phew just copied and labeled 3 of each Grouping, Linear and Adv Linear games in PTs 1-27. Hopefully this will help. Too bad I can't upload a picture cause the spread of billions of papers here on the living room floor is just lovely.

I am planning to take it just once, but I don't want to be a victim of wishful thinking. Even if I was averaging a 180 heading into the test, shouldn't I at least leave a few untouched in case I completely choke? Or is the difference between 10 new tests and 15 new tests that significant? If anything, saving some would put a little less pressure on me on test day since I won't have to make June the be all end all.

use them all, esp the newer ones sooner (so in case if you find them harder, you have more time to learn from them).
plus, trust me as a retaker, you forget all of the ones you took within a month or two (let alone 3-4months).

Just played a few games of squash, knocked back a 5 hour and ready to take a PT. Debating on 30s or 50s. Probably go with the 56

You don't like? Just think about shooting everclear or something comparable and realize that the 5 hr is way better :wink: . Then it tastes like nectar from the LSAT gods

Haha true. Last week I bought one and I don't think I've had one since finals week last semester. It was like, "hellooo sucralose". However, I just fell asleep on my living room floor for twenty minutes while reviewing a game. Good thing I got a two pack cause I need about 4 more hours in today :|

(these four hours will be sponsored by a 5 hr [ew ew] and the terror that crumpets just instilled in my soul)

OMG.

180 on 46 just now. I'm flying.

RC: -1
LR1: -0
LR2: -0
LG: -0

I've been plateaued in the low 170s (and high 160s, gulp) for a while. Been taking more time between tests to brush up on theory. Developing more sophisticated strategies, and specifically practicing with 30 minute sections instead of 35. This is breaking open my concept of what I can get on this test. Even if I don't keep the gain (or whole gain) for the next PT, now I know I can do it. It's like a handhold on the summit. I'm not all the way up yet, but I can reach it. I can at least see it.

How do you review this test? I guess I need to look at all the questions that could have gone the other way, the uncertain ones. I'm noticing strategies that are becoming more ingrained, fully absorbed. Like 15 LR questions in 15 minutes, and then a natural slow down in response to expected higher difficulty. (Pretty sure that's plagiarized from LRB)

Anyway, thanks for listening. I always read the posts and help when I can. It's nice to have a community to practice with. I have to tell you about this, because no one else in my life understands this obsession.

That's amazing, Hunter! It must feel so good. :D

I'm doing LR repair exclusively before going back to PTs, probably on Thursday. I hope to get out of the slight slump I'm currently in.

Congrats! Awesome to see all your hard work and review is paying off. And your success definitely motivates the rest of us to keep at it, hopefully I can post something similar on this thread, preferably about 3 weeks after June. :lol:

Oh my GOD CONGRATULATIONS, that is seriously so. Fucking. Awesome. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Do you mind if I ask what you did as you took more time between tests? I'm in the 170s range right now (with a few dips into the high 160s) and I would loooove to replicate your breakthrough. Seriously, this is very impressive, you should be SUPER proud!!!
