PT 66

RC:-5
LR:-4
LG:-9
LR:-5

Scaled: 162

My LG is just out of control. And I have studied so hard for them. All I have done for the past couple weeks is take PT's and drill LG (in addition to spending the entire month of August on LG). This is the lowest I've scored on a PT in about 2 weeks. I am now considering taking my last available PT (65) tonight in hopes of restoring some confidence before Sat. Of course, there's always the risk that I will do poorly on that one as well...

Any advice?

Recent June

LG: -0 -5
Raw: 96/100 89/100
Scaled: 177 169

A few disclaimers. First, I took this in June but haven't looked at it since. I put the June score side by side with the retake. Also, and I don't know what effect this had (I'm going to guess a negative one), I haven't slept in about 35 hours due to working graveyard last night and studying for a test this morning. I took it in the group study floor of the library, as well. I'm sure those two factors would mitigate any advantage I received from an un-reviewed retake. Last five tests? 178, 178, 177, 178, 177. Dat consistency. Oh, and this was also after a history exam... Feeling really good.


Good job, Noodly! I loved squishing 64 between my fingers when I retook it. Cathartic, no? I may just do that again tomorrow to boost confidence.

I forgot about the 2x2 photo....

I have 1 section of each type left... do them now o leave them for tomorrow?

I thought it was common knowledge you weren't suppose to do anything the day before the test but I see so many people that plan to drill tomorrow that I just don't know what to do.... I thought of doing half LG and RC tomorrow and do 2 games and 10 LR questions 7am before the test... what you guys think?

My last PT ever!

RC: -2
exp LG
LR1: -1
LG -4 (ah, finished with time though so I feel good about that, -4 is not normal and that was an easy game so I feel confident for Saturday)
LR2: -1

Scaled: 173 :D

Much better than my 168 June

Just what I needed going into Saturday. Going to review this tonight or tomorrow, and see how my incorrect responses differed from June.

Almost D-Day guys!

I figure if I get a 180, I'll consider myself to have the superpowers equivalent to that of Mike in Suits.

Y'all have been awesome. I've been lurking and keeping up w/ everyone. Took PT66 tonight and did fairly well RC -2 LR1 - 1 LG -3 (dumb mistakes LR2 -6.. 169.. Seems a lot of people here didn't do well on the 2nd LR on that one.. wtf? Do y'all think it was because it was the last section or was it just trickier/more difficult? I haven't had a -6 in ages.

Also, that foul shots parallel is money. Just muscle memory at this point.

just finished PT66(6!)

RC: -3
LR1: -1
LG: -1 (easy one too, on wayne's solos.)
LR2: -2 (changed an answer from a correct one ><)

93/100 - 173

when i started to grade LR1, around 15 my eyes drifted to the section 1 answering column and i was like "WTF i got 5 in a row wrong!?" before i realized what i was doing.

the most frustrating one is LG just because i should be better at them. it's not that they're too hard, it's just that i find a good answer that seems to work with my diagrams and i go with it too quickly without double checking sometimes. i'm lazy/worried about time. gah.


finally, usually i go blind on time, and in all my PTs i just set a 35 minute alarm and on drills i set it for 7m30sec. i decided to buy a small analog wristwatch (since mine is digital) but i found that the ticking was terribly distracting so i threw it across the room early in the test. glad i practiced this before i actually was tempted to throw my watch in the test center.

Last full PT(58)

LR:-1
RC:-2
LG:-1
LR:-5

171

On the last LR, I unfortunately ran into 3 questions that I remember, so I missed them on purpose. Those happened to be the ones I missed the last time I took the exam, and thus I had reviewed them and remember the correct choices. In this case, I'm not completely sure if I would have guessed the correct answer otherwise, so I didn't want to give myself those points.

Either way, it's okay, I think I perform better after I do poorly than than after I do well. Tomorrow, just some timed LR sections, and logic games, maybe some reading passages, then chill.

PT 66 yesterday :) (old scores)

LR1: -0 (-0)
LR2: -1 (-1)
LG: -1 (-6) :evil: still pisses me off
RC: -2 (-4)

Raw: 97 (90)
Scaled: 178 (169)

Wish I had pulled this off in June.

Anywho I averaged up my PT scores for this round versus last time.

Avg:

LR1: -.6 (-2)
LR2: -.9 (-1.9)
LG: -.4 (-1.8)
RC: -2 (-5)

Raw: 97 (90)
Scaled: 178 (171)

In June my score dropped 2 points from my average. Avg: 171 and Actual score: 169

So if I follow the same trend Avg: 178 and actual Oct score: 176

I would be happy with a 176 :)

Still visualizing a 180!! :D

Well later today I am driving 2 hours to the college where I graduated to take my test.
I will post one last time there.
Good luck today guys! Either studying or relaxing! We got this!

Anyone else excited to see some new games? I haven't seen a new post-PT40 game since June and I'm itching to redeem myself for missing a, "Which of the following would be an acceptable order?" question. When I saw that, it was an immediate *facepalm*.

I'm not going to wish any of y'all luck, either. Some of you I know from the June 2012 thread, so to you, and everyone else in here:

Go in there tomorrow confident that you KNOW how to do this, that you don't NEED luck, and that this is the last time you're going to take this motherfucker.
