Was PTing consistently between 168-170, scored 162 on October - I wish I could say LG killed me but it didn't, only went -2 and I'm almost always -0; I got more wrong on LR2 than I've ever gotten wrong in a section before, which is what did me in. I had it as my last section, following the frustrating LG, so I'm hoping I can contribute this at least partially to being flustered/tired at that point? Cherry on top of it all, was I found out last Thursday that I had strep throat hours before the scores were released, so I wasn't physically able to start studying until Monday. Took June 2007 yesterday as a starting point after only reviewing RC Monday and Tuesday, scored a 165 which I suppose isn't a horrible place to start, especially considering I was a little out of it - I live in Seattle, so there was a lot of celebrating to do Tuesday night. Anyways, looking forward to getting through this with you all!
Haha yup I'm roughly in the same situation as you in terms of PTs to real score. LR is what did me in as well. I'm just trying to work on being more systematic with LR right now instead of relying so much on intuition. I'm 1/5 of the way through Cambridge's LR guide and I think it's helping a bit in terms of teaching a process for thinking through LR.
I'm also interested if anybody learned something helpful from Manhattan's review tonight.
