I really liked this method, it takes a long time but you really get a chance to see where you're going wrong. It's also a really big confidence booster to see what you're capable of, for example I know that logic games is a work in progress, so seeing what kind of scores I can get if I master the games section is a huge motivation.
Hope everyone's studying is going well, 85 days to go!
mickey, this sounds like a great idea! From the practicing that I've done, it seems like confidence in your skills plays a huge factor in your performance. So not only are you going to improve from seeing those little areas where you made mistakes, but recognizing that they were small problems that you can catch with a little more focus/time will help your confidence, too!
I haven't started PTing yet. And I work FT+grad school. So... I have been reluctant to commit to the slow redo of the PT after I complete it because of timing. But now I'm thinking I might do it!
