What's the earliest prep test useful for study?

Postby ams212 » Fri Jul 06, 2012 5:03 pm

Above ^

I am going to have 5 months to study. I was going to get tests 1-65 in a bundle for 230 bucks. Is it worth it? Or should I be focusing only on more recent ones. Just curious. TIA

If you have the time and dedication, you might as well start at 1. Of course, when the test gets closer, focusing mostly on modern tests would be best.

Perfect advice.

While the early PTs are slightly different than the modern ones, they're not so different that they're not useful. They generally have the same question types, and they rely on the same logic. You won't get comparative RC, and some of the LR questions (and a handful of games) will seem a bit wonky, but for the most part they're still good practice.

Thanks for the advice! I was just curious because I had seen many posters say that they start in the 30s and 40s. I was wondering if there was a reason. Staying motivated will be tough, but the payoff is worth it.

Most start in the 30s and 40s because getting through 60 PTs with most people's schedules (and proper review) just ain't gonna happen. If they're going to only do certain tests, they might as well be the most recent ones (which is solid planning).

I bought the ones you can get in books of 10 and then the most recent 10 individually and found that those were more than sufficient.

All of them will help (except some of the mapping games and processing games are basically irrelevant now). Just a matter of how much time you have...
