Just did PT 40 Game 2 ... finished in 11:40 despite having done it last night and having made a bunch of deductions quickly up front :?:

Did this game take a while for anyone else? I think maybe it's because I just woke up, but I really feel like I was doing the problems very efficiently, using my deductions etc. yet still finished way over the time I feel I should've got

Old games (1-39) > modern games. And the REALLY old games like 10 just have some complete mindfucks thrown in there.

Okay, definitely an uplift today.

I made a 171 yesterday, which was a mental blow, so I took yesterday as a total LSAT break.

Took PT 58 today with an experimental from PT 51.

I took it in a windy busstop with no desk or table, so I was scribbling, hunched over a bench. I looked like a homeless, crazed person.

Ex. LR: -0
LR1: -1
RC: -0
LG: -0
LR2: -1

180/180

This made me feel a lot better after crashing on Wednesday. Still frustrated to be missing LR section, because I consider it my best questions, but I'll live.

I don't have any clean tests unless you count PT 67, but I can say with confidence that I didn't remember any part of that except for part of an LG game. I'm still taking it with a grain of salt.

Preesh, buddy.

Oh yeah, for anybody taking old tests and wanting a comparison of how they are to modern ones, well...my average for the old tests (15, 14, 13, and 12) was a 174.25 and my average for the new tests (56, 57, and 58) is a 179.

Granted, I have one extra old PT but I thought the old tests were harder, and it definitely showed in my score.

So who all is taking PT 67 tomorrow, who is taking it Sunday, and who is opting for Monday?

Nice recovery, I'm in a bit of a slump myself...lost dat consistency. Hopefully I can hop back on like you.

I'm actually considering taking PT67 this weekend instead of next. It's probably better to find out where my weaknesses (repeated mistakes) are now rather days before my retake.

Ok so I'm probably doing PT67 in which case I'll do it Sunday morning. I'll use Saturday to drill myself into semi-peak shape so I can it a legit effort.

If you guys wanna review together, I'll be down anytime after that or Monday.

BTW: Lena you seem to be pretty thorough in monitoring your conditions, any idea what caused your test-day drop? I score decently on PT's as well and I'm trying to cover all my bases heading into Dec.

Yeah, I think I've narrowed my failings down to a few major points.

Overconfidence: I'd be prepping like a crazy man and I thought I had it figured out. Huge mistake. It bitchslapped me around and left me with a score almost 10 points below my average.

Timing: Pre-test I was finishing LR in 20 minutes, ish and RC is about 28. Test day I finished LR in probably 18 minutes and RC in about 26 (not exact numbers). I blew through it way too quickly, making colossal errors. I remapped my entire attack for LR and RC, slowing each one down substantially. I treat every question like a live bomb, even the "easy" ones, instead of just getting the answer and leaving.

Intuition: I'm naturally good at this test (which led to overconfidence) and I didn't really even have a strategy for LR and RC. I just attacked the questions, living or dying by my intuition; when it came game time, that crucified me. When I say I remapped my LR/RC attack, it's more like I actually created one, not improved upon it. Having an attack for each question on LR and the passages on RC has helped my focus/scores out significantly.

I had the LR experimental as my first section, and I absolutely killed it. I think that set me up for failure by boosting my already overconfident outlook.

Those are the biggest ones that I've been able to figure out.

Also, talking to people during the break that I knew. Big mistake. My worst section was section 4, and I think listening/conversing just threw me off. Come December, I'm going anti-social game time mode. I'm putting on my fuck off face (it's rather good) and not talking to anybody.

Edit: I've really got to learn to be humbler.
