Is it OK to burn a PT like this?

Postby MarkyMarkChez » Tue Apr 03, 2012 11:44 pm

I decided to take my 3rd PT and was cruising through the first LR section and then toward the end of it I just lost interest and went 2 minutes past the time limit. So I decided to just do the rest of the entire thing untimed. Except that I only got past the next section- LG and decided to just quit. I got the first 14 questions right in the LR section then I started getting a lot wrong at the point where I lost interest and couldn't focus on the stimuli.

Is this normal? Is it OK for this to happen every so often? I feel like I just wasted a perfectly good PT.

What does this even translate to?

But OP, yeahs thats ok. Just try not to do it because, yes, that is a PT "wasted now" Just break up the sections you didnt use and use them for drilling

What PT was it?

This definitely happens, don't sweat it too much, but don't make a habit of it.

I wouldn't put TOO much stock in the earlier PTs. I think that once you're at Pt 30+, then start worry about "burning" them.

Also, it is highly recommended to re-do PTs that you've done, that way you can solidify your logic and ensure that you know whats going on. If you miss questions the second go around on a PT, that you've previously missed, you need to find the error that still exists in your reasoning.

Good luck!
