Bus: 12:00 - 2:30
Arrive at airport in Mexico City at 2:30/2:45
Flight: 6:15 AM
Arrive in Dallas at 8:30
Flight: 9:45
Arrive in Little Rock, AR at 11:45
Then another couple hours to my final destination via car :-P

It's going to be a long two days.


My bad - I assumed that you were back. That is a brutal itinerary, especially because the plane change makes sleeping hard.

Safe travels!

What other studying have you done today? Were most of the incorrect answers on one or two passages, or were they fairly evenly distributed?

I haven't done that much today really. And it was 4,4,3,6 which is pretty even I guess....this literally has me in shock...I don't even miss that many in a WHOLE TEST.

It was PT 70. I actually felt good on it too. I tried a new technique so maybe that had something to do with it. A part of me is convinced that the answer key is wrong, or that my .pdf is off. uhhhh idk but this is bad.

Convoy,

You said it yourself: this is worse than you ever do. Crazy shit happens -- this test is OBVIOUSLY not representative of your testing abilities.

I'm taking PT 70 tomorrow, so I can't speak exactly to the test. I know that Xylocarp just took it, so maybe she can chime in.

Edit: And to echo Zhenders - this has no bearing on your actual abilities. It was one bad section, and has no bearing on all other good work you've done.

Alright thanks everybody. It didn't even seem too hard, maybe I'm just burnt out or out of it today

Also: PourMeTea, you disappeared from the thread way long ago. Did you hit your score on an earlier write, or have you just been silently around?

I'm gonna do 71 RC tonight and let you all know how that goes.

What is everyone doing this week in terms of sleep schedule? From taking the December one I think I prioritized prep over sleep too much the week leading up because I overestimated my ability to get good sleep the night before....this def backfired but i'm interested in everyone else's approach

I'm doing 8 hours per night, slowly working my way back to waking up at 5:45 on test day. I woke up at 7:30 this morning, will do 7 tomorrow, 6:30 Wednesday, 6 Friday. No idea if this is the most beneficial way of doing it but it's the only way I'll manage it I think.

Wow, that's early. Fortunately I live really close to my test center (which has a cheap adjacent parking lot), so I don't have to get up until 7:15 or so :)

Going to start waking up at 5am on Wednesday so that I'm fully alert by 8. Using melatonin to alter the sleep cycle.

I didn't put enough weight on sleep before Oct/Dec and didn't sleep a wink the night before either take.

I have a tendency not to be able to fall asleep before big days, so I might knock myself out ridiculously early with some sleeping pills. I'm definitely worried about nerves' effect on my sleep the night before. What do you think caused your lack of sleep?

Wow so jealous haha.
I live 30-40 minutes away from my test center, but I also want to plan to get there 30-40 minutes early just in case something crazy happens. I'm also giving myself time to make breakfast not in a rush and fully wake up.

Convoy, I swear we are on the same study wavelength or something. I bombed an RC passage on Saturday, IDEK wtf happened but I took the rest of the day off and felt a lot better. Maybe same???

I had a question about 71 but then just figured it out myself anyway. I feel like the entire test was just hard >:( but such a generous curve.
