On a more serious note, if you do score lower on the tests with more generous curves, then you're probably only in command of the basic concepts on a surface level.


If you score lower on the tests with more stringent curves, then it's an issue of focus probably more than anything.

It's probs better to take days in-between anyway (at least it is for me...hahha) I just did PT 57 (see below). My schedule for the next 1.5 weeks is probs gonna be:

This week - PT 60 Sat, PT 61 Mon (no work)

Next week - PT 62 Wed, PT 58 (my original test) Fri, just for fun/to see if I do any better.

Anyway, today's PT:

57 -- 05/25/11 ----- LR: -2/1 ; RC: -1 ; LG: -0 ------------ 97/177

Y'all, I cannot DESCRIBE how ecstatic I am over this score...not even because of the raw/scaled, but because I got -1 ON RC!!!! I'm hoping this is not a fluke, but rather an indication that the RC guide has helped in some way.

I was a little nervous going in, since this was the infamous 'mauve dinos' test, but the LG was pretty easy given all the hype (I did have to take an extra minute over my usual 30 min though, so it was definitely more time consuming, since I usually finish LG in 25-30 min). LR was a typical score, and though I didn't -0 either of the sections I'm still glad to be consistent. RC is fucking....sdlkfjlwejfwe IDEK. I think if I had gotten another -5 or -4 after doing the RC guide it would have destroyed my confidence, so...I'm glad for this test. Really, really glad.

Now to maintain (or improve!) this through the next 2 weeks!!! I'll go through the answers I missed later, I just want to relax and enjoy the score for now (:

:oops: I know, I suck at sleeping on time and shit...but it's only 2 weeks vs 2 months so much more sustainable now. I figure if 10 hours is what I need for my brain to give me a 175+, if I want to get up at 9 on the day of I should probably start sleeping at 11 every night. So....3 hours earlier than I sleep now >_<

This is not qualified as falling apart!! You will be fine. Review 62 tomorrow/today before you PT. You will rock it I'm sure. (:

God damn. Yes, I went -12 on RC and I think -11 on LR2? on PT60. Spectacular meltdown compared to my PT average to that point
