RC section on older PTs

Postby HuskyHopeful » Tue Jul 10, 2012 9:41 pm

Are these harder or is it just me? All of the PTs i have taken prior to the 2000 mark have been shit shows. Just random variance or are these questions/reading sections harder in difficulty?

IMO, recent RC (52-present) is more difficult. Just based on how bad I was at them...

I find the current RC sections much easier as well. It went from being my worst section in the earlier tests to my best one somewhere around the 40s-50s.

Definitely my worst section, I also wonder if my stalled progress and even recent disasters is because they are older and thus harder for me for some reason. I think besides the wording, one passage in particular really confused me. For example, PT 39 and it was about the internet and pirating. Given that the article was written in the mid 90s (it said so). It seemed to have some ideas that conflicted with what I see in the pirating debate.

For example, there was a question asking about what would be a compromise BOTH SIDES could agree on (according to the article). The right answer was something along the lines of 'everyone pays a small fee for downloads', which is clearly not something that is agreed upon by everyone now-a-days and was pretty hard to interpret from the article because as far as I can remember it never said that the internet community would find that acceptable. Then again, I think the reason it was the right answer was because neither side would object to it, not that either side was supporting the barring of other means as well, still was a confusing passage though.
