Should I do practice tests 1-6?

Postby laww » Tue Jun 11, 2013 3:40 pm

I've taken tests 7, and then about 15 starting from the 20s. I've also done test 45 and a test from #50s.

I heard that the earlier tests are not good for practice but is that true?

Take as many tests as you can... I used the earlier tests as experimental sections

Any available practice test is better than nothing or just drilling and will certainly help you. Choosing 6 PTs from the 50s, or 60s would be preferable though since they would include the comparative reading section (I think it starts at PT 52?). There's absolutely nothing wrong with taking earlier tests. I started with the earliest prep tests initially to not only get use the questions and gain practice but to also get practice actually taking the test in timed scenarios so that I could then focus my more serious prep on the most recent tests once I get the hang of it. Early tests won't hurt you at all, they'll just give you extra practice. However, if, for example, you only have time to do, say, 20 more PTs before test day, you should take the 20 most recent tests as they're typically more representative of what you'll see on test day.
