PT 42 LG = -3
PT 43 LG = -1 (O yea... I'm getting there alright)
PT 25 RC = - 9 (I ran out of time but still would have had a -8 had i completed it in time)
PT 22 RC = -5 (Ran out of time for last question, would have gotten a -5)
I seem to have the most trouble with Generalization/Principle, Function/Role, and Structure (according to LSATQA - which, side note here, is fucking phenomenal). How do you recommend I focus on these types of questions? I have MLSAT LR and RC books, i could look over the LR chapter on main point i think, but idk how effective that would be. Any help is greatly needed/appreciated.
What the hell do i do about my RC? I have the MLSAT RC book, but i havent read past part 1. Do you recommend i look over that book before i do anymore PT's? I have 2 PT section RC scheduled for sometime later this week, I should read the RC book before completing them right?
Did you miss a question on the artists' painting game? That game was a bit tricky, and the wording on some of the questions seemed funky/ambiguous. The student newspaper review game was also in this vein sort of.
Ya I did. And it was the first Passage too...
How did you improve your RC? just by taking timed sections? I need to work on question type. Is the RC book helpful for that?
I wouldn't stress the artist game that much, the big take away is just to be diligent in paying attention to what the question is asking you.
I wouldn't say my RC is fully improved yet. I am capable of getting a good score on it, but often times I fuck up and go -10 (usually dropping an entire passage). So now I'm just working on consistency. Mainly I just do untimed drilling. I read for structure, take note of author's opinions, and keep a general awareness of what is being said. What I mostly try to take away from the drilling, is how the question stems are tripping me up. As far as the books go, I have Manhattan RC, and took testmasters a year ago. I don't think either approach is very good because RC seems very personal, and notation seems to take too long and confuse me. But, YMMV.
