160.
Considering my last pt was 167 and I felt confident during this pt, I'm pissed about it.

I know I'm a slacker I just can't get the motivation to do another full PT and it's been over a week. I'm drilling a little each day but I need to get back in the habit of concentrating for long periods rather than short bursts.

Stuck in the 164-167 range. I feel so close and have gotten perfect scores on each section type but I just need more time to perfect it.

Debating postponing till Sept or taking in June as a dry run/miracle attempt

You still have plenty of time to work on whatever you need to work on :)

Don't give up :)

Have any of you ever tried doing practice problems or untimed sections in a disruptive environment? I'm hoping that the distractions and noise are what caused my scores to plummet lately. (I'm spending the week with my family -- including a 12 year old, 7 year old, and triplet 5 year olds. So much yelling and crying.)
I guess I have this superwoman complex that says I should be able to work in this atmosphere so that on test day I can handle any noise. But let's be real: it's not that loud in the room.

Trying to find a happy medium in the only semi-quiet spot in the house. PT 68 today. I'll report back. :-/

I attempted to take a PT today at Barnes and Noble-it was not a success due to nosy environment. Ughh :shock:

Yeah. Bombed with a 163. RC killed me as usual but worse than normal at -10. Also didn't understand the third game. I'll watch the video on it later. Need to give my brain at least a 24 hour break. I do so much better after a long time off (score a 167 easy that time with like a week off between.)

The 180 watch is a godsend for LG.

Knowing that I finished the first game in 5 minutes takes the edge off.

Knowing that I have ten minutes left for the 4th game is a relief.

Everyone should buy one.

I bought a watch with the bezel, but I thought it was a pain having to manually adjust it every time and it was never precise.

It's amazing what a day off can do when we really need it.

Lol it never works out for me…i gave it a try again, after failing miserably on Saturday-both days i was distracted by couple of people asking me what I'm studying..what kind of law i want to practice, if I'm single etc. Now, trust me i don't mind the questions-im very social and chatty, and thats my problem…i end up answering all of the questions (if i don't, i feel guilty), which causes me to lose 4-5 hours a day because i chat with people instead of study. To get to the point, its not working out. Barnes and Noble has become more of a social place for me rather than a study place...

Logic games bore me to death now. I have switched to listening to jazz music when drilling LG just because it spices my drilling up a bit. It's just so.....mechanical.
