Averaging -2 in RC drills over four passages. This is an improvement over pre-test's -4 and test day's -6.

No idea what I'd scoar on a PT.

Damn, need to try of that new legal CO good. Been drilling cambrige LR - did flaw and assumptions.. sooo many but doing well. I'm actually starting to eliminate each answer choice now instead of just finding the right one and seeing good results there. I'm going to take my first full PT since the test either tomorrow or friday. Anyone recommend a fairly easy PT to get me back in the groove? Preferably one w/ a good curve.

Just got done with PT26. I thought I did a lot worse. I didn't do that well, but the curve was generous so I ended up with a 175. I'm gonna have to focus on LR a bit more than I planned, but oh well. Break down was as follows:

LG: -0
LR1: -3
LR2: -3
RC: -2

Retook PT54 in a semi-noisy library:
RC:-4 (Ran out of time)
LR:-0 (3-4 mins left)
LG:-0 (5 mins left)
LR:-0 (6 mins left)
Scaled Score: 177

Awww yea. This place wasn't as distracting as a B&N, but I didn't notice any of the distractions my PT partner did so I feel like this focus-training is definitely working. I actually had 9 mins left for final RC passage, but realized I'm absolutely useless in the last 2 minutes of a section. I'll try to push my pace b/c even having a tiny buffer buys me huge peace of mind/calm.

Now that I feel I've shaken off the rust, its time to switching gears to solve my RC woes. I'm coming for you bitsy, mrizza, hawk...December 1st is mine!

Chad, I used to freak out at <2 minutes too, but then I realized that we're only supposed to use 1 min 30 seconds on a LR question, and the RC's generally require a lot less reading than LR (if you don't have to go back and reread the passage!!) so you can actually get probably 2-3 questions answered correctly at the normal pace with only 2 mins to go if you don't panic.

This is a really good point.

I'm useless in the last 2 mins of a section for a different reason. I always have to go back through the section and make sure every answer on my scantron matches the answers I circled in the booklet. One mis-bubbling accident in Middle School traumatized me for life.

I wonder if anyone else does this. I've yet to find an answer transferred incorrectly so maybe I should consider stopping.

I actually think that's probably one of the best ways to spend the last minute or so. A bubbling error could fuck your whole section, and going over it is worth it. If you have 2+ minutes I would check bubbling then review your tough questions. FWIW, I spent time checking my bubbling as well.

This. I check my answers every section, given enough time. I'd rather take a chance at missing one by relying on my skills than missing the last 15 questions because I mis-bubbled.

four 35-minute sections with -1 on three and -0 on one?

that seems really good and consistent.

I usually spot check as I go and tend to only fill in 2-3 at a time. Idk, I've never had a bubbling error before, so I'm not very paranoid about it.
