What to do with last 10 PT's ??

Postby gaud » Thu Aug 25, 2011 2:46 pm

So I have about 10 pt's left (each with experiemental sections added) and a few spare sections on the side.

I'm debating whether or not to just continue to use the spare sections just on their own OR add them to tests and have 6-section PT's (not counting the writing sample)....

Anyone have any opinions or experience with 6-sections pt's and how it may or may not improve your performance.... anyone have positive or negative results with 6-section pt's that they could share??

Thanks

Why are you looking into 6 section pt's as opposed to the normal 5? I wouldn't do more than a couple of 6 section ones, and then only if you have a test fatigue problem.

I've done a few 6-section practice tests and they have helped me iirc, BUT I do tend to have a focus problem towards the end of the test. I've been doing 4 sections/break/2 sections and I have improved a lot on the last few sections regardless of what they are and am not making as many careless mistakes.

I feel like I sometimes miss questions toward the end of the test due to lack of focus and I think that 6-section tests may force me to focus more. Would you recommend otherwise in my case? If you, can you explain?

Thank you, I have sort of the same problem so that's kind of what I am wondering.
