### Re: How many were guesses?

I didn't really count. I think like only a couple on one of my logic reasoning sections, but I don't even remember if I guessed or felt confident about it. You know when you answer A for a question and you know time is running out, so you don't take the time to read the rest? About the best way to guarantee you are wrong, but I had a couple of those. Every now and then, though, it really is A.

I guessed on a couple at the end of RC, although I actually read each question, I just circled the first one that seemed to make sense to me.

LG, I realized I had a wrong answer circled right before time. Not much I could do about that.

Dun wanna hijack the thread. Is lack of time the issue here? "Ideally" you wouldn't have to guess.

Yeah I guessed from lack of time except that lr question I narrowed it down to two and had a hard time picking one

As complete guesses? Only 2 on LR. I had to rush through the last RC but I was able to answer every question... but not at optimal accuracy probably.

Yeah i dont know if i should cancel my score or not because i guesssed on all of these from lack of time. Maybe i am ExaggeraTing and i guessed on maybe three less than i posted previously. I really just dont know. Saturday just felt like a major blur. The test for me goes by so fast. I really wish i could go take another test tomorrow because i dont have a problem with the test itself it is just the anxiety before and after the test that kills me. The unknown is what sucks.

Do you know why you ran out of time? For me it was because I was taking extra long on each problem to be extra careful. I was trying to make sure I didn't make careless mistakes. I am hoping the extra time spent would have increased my accuracy thereby offsetting the amount I guessed on.

About the same for me, actually. My magic letter was 'D'.

LG- last 4
RC-2 questions were skimmed and while I didn't comprehend all the ACs I chose the one that was most intuitively salient. 2 more were pure guesses. I looked over my scantron and saw that D was underbubbled lol.
LR~3
LR-3 (I educatedly guessed on the question about color paper vs paint; westnile virus and mosquitos; and the wolves and dog which I'm fairly confident was right.)

I guessed on two LR questions.

One of the guesses was due to my cavalier attitude about the question spurred by a 5-hour energy.

I feel like I had reason to select every answer but question 15 on logic games. And that was because I skipped it and forgot to go back until too late.
