LR 1: 0
LR 2: -1 (Time)
LG: -2 (one time)
RC: -6 (-3 time)

Raw: 92 Scaled: 173. I remembered a couple of the LR I had trouble with the first time I took it, but didn't remember the answers to some other harder ones so was pleased with that. The plan was to re-do PT 63 today, PT 62 tomorrow, and PT 66 Wed, but now I'm not so sure I'l have time for 63. May just do one of 63 and 62 tomorrow and then 66 Wed. Still have LR sections for 49, 50, and 55 and would like to get through at least one of those before game day.


Nice work! Work on that RC timing over the next 5 days and you will destroy it on the 1st. I find that when I am short on RC time, its because I spent too long on one challenging question. I often get it wrong anyways. Don't get hung up on answer choices. IMHO its better to half guess a question after one minute if can't puzzle it out than spend 3 minutes on it, forcing you to rush your last passage and putting 5-7 questions in jeopardy due to a hasty, panicked read of the text.

Superprep A: February 1996
LR: -0
RC: -1
LG_ -2
LR: -3 (yeah, I know)

174 on a tough scale.

The LG was, as are all these old tests, really hard, and I took forever on the third game, leaving only four minutes to do the last game. I attacked it and ended up answering 6/7 of the answers correctly through some hypo's and mostly intuition. Either way, it made me nervous as fuck, and I found myself blanking on the last section (LR). I ended up going back and basically starting over because I wasn't really reading the answers, falling back on my old intuitive habits. This caused me to run out of time and end up missing 3 out of the last 4 questions. Tough score, but I know now that after failing hard (or feeling like I did) on one section, that it's time to regroup and destroy the next. This was a case of the third section basically destroying my fourth section because it psyched me out.

Buddy, if you score a 174 on a test that you feel like you shit the bed on, you've got nothing to worry about.

I went to a restaurant with my friends this weekend and got (shared with everyone at the table) fried pickles, mac n' cheese, and fried chicken and pancakes. I didn't eat much on Thanksgiving so I guess that balanced it out. So tasty.

Come on, Lenehan, I don't need everyone thinking I order like that on my own. I have an image to uphold.
All in all, the 6 of us ate half of the food and were stuffed. Biggest post-thanksgiving meal ever. I still feel kinda gross.

Just finished PT 57.

-1 LG (stupid mistake on game 4 but I owned the dinosaurs)
-4 LR (17-20: maybe my brain took a mini vacation. WTF?)
-4 LR (the correct answer was my "other" choice for each question.)
-4 RC (-2 in the 2nd and 3rd selections.)

Scaled 168. I found the RC more difficult than usual on this one. The comparative reading killed me on time and I pretty much always hate the humanities based passage. I didn't miss any on the fractals section, but it was TEDIOUS. The first passage was easy, though.

Yes. Also, LR is where I need to focus most this week. I'm really analyzing my mistakes and trying to nail them down. That, and utilizing my time.
