LR PTs 52-62 - More difficult/challenging? Or is it just me?

Postby justbubbles » Wed May 25, 2011 7:47 pm

Also, usually in LR, q's 21-25/26 are more challenging, but from PTs 52-62, the LRs have some really tough ones from q's 1-20. :shock:

Is it just me? Or am I just slacking?

That's really point of this thread. ie: to get some TLS consensus.

I know 52-62 are generally considered more challenging, but I was under the impression that it affected RC/LG more than anything else.

Yep, given the stats on curve, yes, 52-62 do appear to be more challenging.

Having said that, personally, I didn't have much difficulty with the LG (some crazy ones like the dinosaur game being an exception) and RC was so-so.

But usually in LR when I scored about -1 to -3 wrong, PTs 52 and above I'm maintaining more or less the same score card (-2 to -5 wrong), but it is taking me way too much time to figure out the right answers. :|

Well that's strange because I've actually watched my LR scores take a dive while my RC/LG has remained relatively consistent.

Agreed.

What's scary is - on LRs PTs 52 and below, I'd pretty much get all LR q's 1-20 perfect, with some mistakes on q's 20-25/26.

But in the PTs 53 and above, I've been getting quite a few mistakes on Qs 1-14. :shock: :shock: :shock:

I believe around that time LSAC had begun to jitter the linearity of LR difficulty

I did very well on the PTs 52-54, but today I took 55 and got dominated. I did much worse on RC and LG than normal.

PT 55 was my lowest practice score ever (162). Did -5 across the board, except LG where I missed 3.
