RC -3
LR -5
LG -2

I've been hitting 168-171 on PTs, aiming for a 167+ on Test Day.

Any tips to combat potential dips this Saturday? That killed me in October. I'm taking one more full-length PT today and will probably go somewhere with distractions.


I've heard meth keeps you from being sleepy. You could try that hot/cold shower thing to wake up, but meth is more reliable. :) Also, DON'T PANIC. A lot of people seem to think skipping around doing easier sections first is a good strategy, but that is fucking stupid. Do shit in order and stay calm.

I'm right in your boat. Been averaging a 169 for the past five tests and would like to stay above a 167 on test day. October and June were both substantially lower (-9 & -7 respectively) than my PT averages going in.

I'm hoping my routine this week (getting up at 7:00 and going through all of the motions I would do on test day, then actually taking a full PT) will help. Also, this is the first time I've been so consistent with scores. I'm hoping that's due to my recently-discovered understanding of the test's trends.

Planning on taking PT 59 spaced out over the course of today. Already went -0 on the first section (LG). LR1 on deck now. Then gonna do a dress-rehearsal tomorrow morning with PT 55.

Great work on the -0! I think that routine should definitely help. I'm debating whether or not to study at all tomorrow. Might just review some tests and drill.

Good luck!

That does sound pretty cool... guess I'll stock up on AnkhsPhoenix Downs before saturday (Forgot we had an established FF circle jerk here)

You can be our party's Priest if we play FFT. That's my one weakness on these games: too much offense and never enough D.

I'm always obsessed with def. I can't bring myself to use anyone besides crono + frog + marle for the group heals + haste.

I'm pumped for Saturday.

Took one RC section, one LG section, one LR section this morning and went -1, -1, -0
I feel like I should be -0 on LR by now but oh well. Feeling pretty good.

I'm basically the exact opposite. I used to like playing multi-player games like Baldur's Gate with my brother because I would be this offensive-minded cannonball and he would run around healing me. So fun.

thanks pickled :]
Except I was extremely dizzy for around an hour after waking up. I think my body is rebelling against my lack of sleep. So hopefully that doesn't happen during the test.

On break from PT 63.

LR 1 was a cakewalk, LG went really well. LR 2 chewed me up and spat me out. I'm not sure if that was because I was getting fatigued and looking past the section to the break, or if it was legitimately harder than LR1. I'm expecting -1/-0 on LR1. Probably -4 or worse on LR2. Fuck.

Sitting in my testing room right now.
Surfing at the Boalt Hall website.
Just called my mom and she told me how awesome I'm going to do.
Trying to make positive correlations here. Haha.

Someone please explain to me not only why B is right for PT66 Section 1, Q12. BUT WHY THE FUCK I KEEP CHOOSING A!?!?!?!!?

I put B as a contender but it just feels like a leap. RAOR!!!!

/ragequits to the gym

took the test this morning; its one of the roughest PTs ive tried. peat moss? i had a in as a weak contender, but chose b.

the conclusion: the belief that the practice is environmentally sound is mistaken
then there's some sciencey bull about some effects of the practice on oxygen levels.

A- "may be" is too weak to straight up claim the belief is bollocks. also doesnt connect with the latter half of the argument, which is the part that needs justifying.
B- yes, this links up the science with the concept of being environmentally sound.

on another q, the wording in B might make me shy away, but with a justify question it hits the mark.
