Reading by far. Hooray dental carries.

A normal RC score would have put me at 170, but I'm still not complaining because I feared I did worse.

LR2, weirdly. If it was going to be either LR (and I didn't even anticipate that), I thought the first one was more difficult.

I actually did very well on LG, missing only 3. They were all on the first game too because I was running out of time. Eat it, stained glass!

I somehow bombed RC. I normally only get a 3 or 4 wrong, so I was dissapointed. Had I done as well as usual, I would have done better than my best practice.

I somehow bombed RC too. I thought it was my best section of the exam and I missed 11 on it. Ridiculous.

I rocked RC and did surprisingly well on LG. The first LR crushed me though.

Bombed RC. -14. My worst section.

Shitty on games, and rocked both LRs.

-5 on LR1 and -5 on RC. I knew that RC wasn't going to go so well but I was surprised by the LR. I thought the RC was one of the hardest of any PT I had taken, and I took nearly all of them.

I felt like RC was my worst section and I ended up with -2. I think the questions are the vaguest in RC so luck plays a bigger role. My RC scores fluctuated wildly during my practice tests as well.

To my astonishment, my sections were pretty even. -6 to -8. I wound up scoring a 161 which isn't bad for my first try @ 83 percentile, and considering the difficulty of the test. I was really expecting like a complete clusterf*** with LG and to do decent on RC, and great on both LR's. Weird how it worked out. Just goes to show you that it's extremely hard to gauge how you did after you leave.

I ended up with a 152:

Logical Reasoning:
-9
Reading Comprehension:
-8
Logical Reasoning:
-8
Logic Games:
-18

I got 18 wrong on LG (not too surprising, although i usually got more like 12 wrong in practice tests), and also got 8 wrong on RC when I normally never got more than 2 or 3 wrong on practice tests. Pretty brutal.

Can I just say though, the Powerscore Bibles gave some awesome advice that really helped me out on this test!

Had to blind guess the last seven question on the first LR section and the last three questions on games. Put E and A respectively since those were the statistically higher numbers to hit at the end of those sections, and 5/10 of them hit! Glorious.

RC: -6
LR1: -6
LG: -5
LR2: -3

LR was harder than anticipated. I'm not happy with a few of those questions.

That said, 172. A tad lower than I'd hoped, but I'll take it!

Definitely LG. Got a -7 though I thought i had done worse. It's really irritating because I know a lot of people aren't good at logic games, so it doesn't matter much (in fact it might help) if an LG section is particularly ridiculous like it was for this test. I'm quite good at LG though, if it's pretty straight forward I won't miss a question. So this hurt. I'm just happy I got -7 instead of -10 or -11.


RC was VERY tough this time. I somehow pulled off a -4 which I'm pretty happy about (especially since I missed 3 of those on the very first passage, FU radioactive carbon).

RC: -5
LR1: -4
LG: -4
LR2: -4

168

Just about what I was expecting. So happy that the first LG I did was experimental, not only b/c I did bad on it, but I think it was a nice warm up. In LG I got -3 on stained glass, and -1 on conferences on the only question that was a pure guess.

I had -9 for a 174 or something heading into LG. LG was -9. Fuck LG, ended up with a 167 which im stoked about but missing half your wrong answers on 25% of the test sucks.

LG was my worst section by far. I had it last and by that point I was so mentally drained that I couldn't concentrate on the stupid windowpanes. It's frustrating because I normally do pretty well on LG, and I rocked the rest of the test... coulda had a 170+. Still not complaining though, since 169 is well above my highest PT and I'm definitely super happy to get it.

Score: 169
LR1: -2
RC : -2
LR2: -2
LG: -8

I missed more on RC than I did on the other 3 sections combined.

Pretty much this. I missed 1 less on RC than all the other sections together.
