I told my parents how important this test is. They understood so I have no obligations whatsoever apart from giving my siblings rides to school.

That's TTT reasoning, bruh.



I am actually considering doing the same 6-8 hours a day, but I also have a full time job, unlike some people.... :wink:



I have no job, no obligations.

All I do is drop off my brothers at school at 8am.

Then after that I eat breakfast 8-9am

Then i head to the library.

9-1pm

take break

study from 4-8 pm

or sometimes I do 8pm - 12



What do you do for those 8 hours? I assume you don't just sit there and do PT's, do you? Or do you Drill, Read Prep Books, Drill more, Read more Prep Books, then PT? or what? I just dont understand how you spend 8 hours doing this stuff.

Do you review your drilling as you go along? Meaning, do you Drill Nec. Assumption, then review then continue drilling Nec. Assumption? Or do you Do all Nec. Assumption then review them all, then go on to Point, etc?

I don't have a consistent time. It depends on the problems I review.

Qs for everyone:

1) Are you taking in June? (I assume yes for 99% of people in this thread, right?)
2) Is this your first take? If not, when did you take it?
3) How long have you been studying?

And for the retakers: have you been retaking PTs, or do you still have fresh material?


1. I am taking in June.
2. Yup!
3. I took a peek at the test around May of last year, bought the Powerscore bibles and read them over the summer. Then I didn't really do much until my Testmasters course started in March, I believe. I regret that now, I should have seriously started at least a couple months sooner. Anyway, my "cold diagnostic" with Testmasters was a 163 on the first day of class. 2 hours a day during the school year and 6-8 hours a day since summer started has brought me to an average of around 170.

I only do it because it builds endurance. Every time I go for that amount of time, I am able to last longer and stay more focused.

Also took 65 today and went 99/101 for my first 180. Amazing feeling. Great confidence booster for the final week.


Question for NoWorries and SteelPenguin are these first takes or retakes? Either way, quite an accomplishment.


Unfortunately it is a retake. However, when I first took this PT in November, I didn't review as thoroughly as I should have. I haven't seen it since then. Although the score may be slightly inflated, I'm still excited about it. My few fresh PTs have all been scores in the low-to-mid 170s though.

1) Yes
2) Retake, first test was December (165, was PTing 166-170)
3) Studied from August to December, and mid-February to present. Roughly 8 months. 154 diagnostic.

I've mostly been retaking recent tests now, but I took some old PTs early on where I had seen some questions, but not entire tests. I've saved the 4 or 5 untouched PTs until this month though. They fall in the same range as my retake practice tests, although I haven't had a fresh test in the high 170s.

Between a 5 section PT and an in depth review that includes videos, you can get up to 6 or so hours pretty easily.



Ya for sure. Thanks for the motivation Dre.

Congrats on the 180! It is not easy to be able to select all of the answers with that accuracy, even with a retake. It shows you've absorbed the material.

I hope so too. If I got a 171 on the test I would probably cry until I died of dehydration. You all are fucking brilliant.
