on pt39 sec1 lg2 #6 it says "max number of session attended by at least one cap employee". Doesn't that mean how may times one employee can be attending?

thanks


I don't have 39 in front of me, but based on what you said (and assuming there are multiple different sessions) it seems like it would be the maximum number of sessions that could have at least one cap employee at it. For example, if there are 5 possible sessions, is it possible that a different cap employee could be at each at the same time? Or only 4? Etc.


I remember this game. 3 employees, 3 days, 3 sessions per day, two of the employees can't attend any session on investing, one can't attend any on the 3rd day. And yes, the question is asking what the maximum number out of the 9 possible sessions can be attended by at least one employee (I believe the answer was 6).

PT 41-50

PT 1-6, 8, 17, 39, 40

I like to buy them in booklet forms because I don't like flipping back and forth on RC sections

175 with 2.5 months to go! Congratulations, that's great! And those LR scores are so solid.

I'm having a similar issue- when I focus on LR/ RC, I feel my LG skills decrease a bit. Glad we have some time left.

Thanks weathercoins! Let's all hope we all do as well on the June test as well as we are doing on these Pts. I've heard so many stories that ppl were PTing like mid to high 170s then get a sub par 160s :/

Yeah, that's my worry. I have been doing 4 section PTs lately, but really need to start with the full 5 section ones soon.

Getting my study materials in the mail Tuesday. Hoping to have the Manhattan books read in the next week or so. PT 52 is going to be my cold test Wednesday if I remember correctly.

Yes sir- you are going to have those written by June? I was thinking it was more a July/August activity?

oh fuck no, i am going to write them this summer while i do research for my UG. i just know there is a solid group of poasters ITT that could provide valuable insight rather than just poasting in the general PS forum of TLS

My tentative plan is July for PS, and Weekly in August for targeted Why X essays. Definitely in.

Unless retake. bleh.

Checking into this thread. Long-time TLS lurker, here. I've been studying on and off for around six months (mostly on weekends, as I'm working full-time). Last five PTs have ranged from 169-178, so consistency is definitely a goal going forward. Took PT 57 on Saturday and scored a 172. Oddly enough, RC is consistently my best section (typically -1 or -2). LR is certainly my worst at this point, especially Weaken questions.

Looking forward to contributing more to this thread as we approach June.

I've been reviewing RC mostly as it was my weakest section. I was touching on LR a little bit, but it's time to start the Powerscore Bible on it. Will try to get through as much as possible this week before doing my first real practice test Saturday.

Time to get to work...I have to stop being lazy and procrastinating.


Edit: What would be the best plan for getting more practice tests? Buy them off amazon or is there a website that offers them?

Getting back at it hard. RC has been the most difficult section to get down but with reading and drilling I think I'll be okay. I am going to focus more on drilling again during the week and take a preptest during the weekend. Stay on it everyone! I'm already at 163, which for an AA male is almost 3 standard deviations above the mean, so I know with practice and diligence, 170s are within my reach!

IIRC, this non-bro got banned after Dec for question discussion or being an insufferable douche. Don't remember which.

If you are applying this cycle, why are you here?

I've come across him before too. He is insufferable with the occasional hint of not douchebag. He seems like he could be alright if he removes the stick from his ass.

They're available on Amazon, but if you prefer PDF versions (to download instantly, print multiple copies, etc.) you can get them here:
