How much weight can you put into PTs.....?

Postby CardozoLaw09 » Mon Jul 09, 2012 10:17 pm

That you've already done at least once and score significantly higher the subsequent tries? I would think these scores would tend to be grossly inflated since those that have better than average memory would more than likely remember which answers were correct. Is there some sort of system that can be adopted to make subsequent scores more realistic? For example, you score 10 points better on your second attempt of a particular PT because you "remembered" some of the correct answers - would it be sensible to deduct a few points to provide a better measure of your performance? How would you assess your performance this second time around knowing that you remembered a lot of the answers?

Let it boost your confidence, but don't let it interfere with your studying! In other words, yeah, it's probably a little inflated especially if it's only been a month or two since you last took it, and there's no way to fix it. It doesn't make sense to freak yourself out by subtracting points. Save any completely unused PTs for closer to test day, and for now you shouldn't be too worried about precisely monitoring your progress. A trend is a trend, whether it's on retakes or fresh PTs.
