### Re: 166 Diagnostic

My diagnostic was a 165. Test day was a 169.

I took a Kaplan course, did all the PS bibles, and did about 30 preptests. Average was 175.4 going into the test.

What happened, you ask? This one RC passage did me in. Took me like 15 minutes and I missed 6 questions on it. Yup. 6. On one passage. RC is normally -1 or -0 total for me.

So, prepare. That should set you up for success.

But its not a guarantee.

If that happens though, you can always simply retake and move on with your life.

I finished logic games with three minutes to spare. It's so easy if you just understand the rules and scribble a quick diagram on a nice piece of paper.

Ahhhh that's where those -0s come from. Now if I only I can find a way to sneak in a nice piece of paper on exam day...

Seriously though, you're in a great position and it's very likely that you can break into the 170s with some work.

So tragic.

Oh screw that. I'm writing on the exam if I'm not allowed to use paper.

You're allowed to write on the exam

You're not allowed scrap paper so you will have to use the test booklet. Learning to fit diagrams in the margins isn't bad though.

I just thought "nice piece of paper" was hilarious.

Am I allowed to wear cool looking shades for the exam?
