Old tests vs New tests and LR

Postby bchirco » Tue Aug 07, 2012 10:47 am

Hey All,

I'm planning on taking the October test and I'm finding a lot of weakness in RC and LR but destroying games (0-2 missed on average). I am going to focus on LR for the next 3-4 weeks but I wasn't sure if I should steer away from older tests.

Any suggestions? Also, would you suggest doing 35 min sections is the best way to build stamina for LR? I find that I am barely able to finish the section. :(

I like newer tests because it is more true to what you will see on gameday.

General consensus though is old LR is older (well, different really) older LG is easier, older RC is easier

I've always heard old LG is harder as well. In my very limited, recent PT experience (PT's 54 and June 07) , I've found LG's to be significantly easier. Can't dispute you about LR though...

Me too. Never heard anyone say this. Care to explain why?

What do you mean by the RC questions being more "more straightforward"? Thanks!
