For those who have taken it and done well, how did you know you were ready? I went through LGB at the beginning of the year but attempting to learn LR questions by type and drilling just confuses me. I'm planning on going through PTs 52-67 and keeping track of the question types I miss, then going over those chapters/drilling those types in older PTs if necessary. So far, I've gone 171, 176, 173. Has anyone gone this route in their study? If I were to hit my target score (mid-high 170's) on all of those 25 recent PTs, should I go for February? I'm currently debating February vs. June for next cycle. I want to get this over with but also want to do my best.

Great PT scores OP, keep it up! For me, towards the end and close to the exam, I intentionally gave myself handicaps. I made myself do 6 sections (one and a half tests) in a row, and counted my score with the lowest 4 sections. I worked near a library lobby where there was some level of ambient noise. I gave myself 33 minutes per section. I intentionally drank too much water so that I really needed to pee towards the end of sections 3 and 6. And once I intentionally sleep-deprived myself the night before a PT. I considered myself ready when I was still getting close to or even at my PT averages even under such adverse conditions. Some people thought I was overdoing it, but all that "training" actually came in quite handy because I came down with the flu a few days before the real exam, so was definitely not 100% on the test.
Best of luck!
