Going to try to stay away from this site until after Monday, for the sake of my nerves. Just wanted to wish everyone good luck! I have reached the point where I am really excited for the actual test, but dreading the two or three weeks of anxiety that follow.

So best of luck to everyone on Monday! Time for our months of hard work to pay off. See you in the waiting thread...

This will be my last post here. I took PT59 today at a study hall near the testing site to gain familiarity.

PT59

LR1: -5 (wow)
LR2: -2
LR(exp): Havent graded yet
LG: -0
RC: -2

Total missed: -9
Raw: 92
Scaled: 174

Wow! Great way to end my studying on a strong note. I hit my goals for RC and LG. This RC was VERY difficult IMO, but I still manage to only miss two with 3-4 minutes left to spare at the end. The games were somewhat difficult, but not the hardest I've encountered. LR1 score surprised me. Overall, I'm thrilled that out of the 5 PT's I've taken in the past three weeks, I've scored below a 170 on only one of them (169 on PT62). The others I scored 173, 172, 170 and now 174. These are the most recent PT's too: 57, 59, 60 61 and 62. So I'm just really confident now and I wish you guys all luck. I'll definitely be around after Monday, one way or the other!

Also, thanks so much to those who helped in this thread.

Raw 84 Scaled 167

One of my best LG ever and by far my worst RC. I've never missed more than 4 on RC, even on the new prep tests. Its funny because on the older tests when I first started out studying I would get -15 on LG and -0/1 on RC, guess I've reversed that now.

Although I'm not terribly disappointed with my score (it's right around my average) I was really hoping to break 170 one last time before the test, and felt pretty confident I was going to. I have one prep test left, should I take it before Monday?


As you can see above I just took the same test and I totally think it's one of the hardest RC sections I've ever done. Put it out of your mind and keep it moving

PT 61

RC -3
LGe -1
LR1 -2
LG -3
LR2 -2

Raw 91 Scaled 171

I am so mad at myself because 2 of the RC, 2 of the LG and 1 of the LR errors were simply from not ready closely. This is not very encouraging...

It's probably a bad idea to rush through a test because you can't sleep. And that's reflected in the score.

PT 51
LR 1: -1
LG: -0
...and then it goes downhill
LR 2: -4
RC: -4

Raw: 91
Scaled: 172.

Not a confidence builder. Not a disaster, but I should've stopped after a 178.

Did the second half of an LR section (-0), two Logic Games (-0), and 2 RC Passages (-1). Really great day-before warm-up, keeping me sharp but not tiring me at all.

Got my warm-up for tomorrow set to be one unseen game from PT 61, 1 unseen RC passage from PT 61, and about every fourth question on 1 LR passage of PT 61.

Feeling really good, let's kick ass!

Haven't been able to sleep much the last few days (I'd say nerves, but it's probably Starcraft 2), so I ran 10 miles on the cliffs here and worked out like crazy in general. Got like 10 hours last night. Feeling GOOD.

Game time.

Appropriately, this got bumped to Reddit's Front Page this morning. Article about a book on choking at critical moments, with exactly one practical tip. Might be worth a read.

Just took it! I didn't get killed, so I won't be canceling. I'd post section-by-section predictions, but I don't know if that's allowed. Not that any of you care. :P

Yep, just took it. Definitely not canceling; definitely not feeling great about it; definitely have no idea if I got a 160 or a 170.

I'm not canceling, but I have the feeling that I got utterly manhandled by that thing. At the break I probably could have been diagnosed as clinically depressed. Ugh. Time to go check in for October.

Just got back from taking it too...didn't feel like I totally owned it but don't feel too bad either. :? Probably won't cancel...

I know I got an experimental RC, now wonder which one it was...I totally zipped through one of them and nearly ran out of time on the other (answered like 6-7 questions in 4 minutes, bleh). Fingers crossed for a good curve, I guess? =)

Haha I'd like to hear it soj. I felt like the LR and RC were pretty easy, but I still couldn't say what I'd predict as a score. I don't remember any sticking out as super hard, but there was a feeling of "meh" for a handful in each. But I had an LRX so I liked that because I'm an LR nerd :)

There was an LR section that was pretty hard. LG/RC were okay.
LG/LGe: -0 to -1
LR1: -0 to -2
LG/LGe: -0 to -1
RC: -0 to -3
LR2: -1 to -4
Raw: -1 to -10

I'm kind of scared about the scale.

Didn't do well. I left a number unanswered (guesses) since I ran out of time on the LG and LR2. During the break, I realized the right answer to the last LG question, but did not want to illegally correct it since it is not allowed. Maybe, I will cancel.
Eich, did you take the test today? I thought you moved to Oct!
Anyone run out of time on LG and LR2?
