That was me yesterday morning. Well, then again, it was Thanksgiving. Haha.

Right now, I'm torn between thinking "OMG IT'S THE LAST WEEK" and "OMG I JUST WANT TO GET IT DONE ALREADY."

Just feeling burnt out lately, and starting not to give a fuck. Damn the decentish but underperforming score that I can still get manageable outcomes with.

LR has been clobbering me, at least the LR between the 40s and prior to 52. And since LR was where 9 of my misses came from in Oct, it's discouraging. I've been doing good on the L4 Cambridge packets and on retakes of 52-70 tests though. I have difficulty making sense of it.

Quick question- I know we're a week away but what do people think of Manhattan RC? I've read the Trainer and a few other books and blogs and it's been pretty useful. Is Manhattan RC worth the buy just for a quick read to see if it'll help for some perspective on RC?

I go anywhere from -1 to -4 on RC and it's a bit frustrating since it's the only section right now giving me that range. -____-


Just want to repeat my question! I'm considering grabbing it from Barnes & Noble real quickly today. Is it worth the buy?

Just as an add - I already generally have been reading for structure. The questions I've gotten wrong have been ~MBT type questions.

If you're getting inference questions wrong, then it's probably more worthwhile for you to drill MBT questions from the Cambridge packets. But also, focus on why you're getting these wrong. Are you not linking things up right in the passage? Or is it more a matter of you falling for the trap answer choices that go a little too far with their logic?

Edit - I think you mean MSS questions, since there are rarely, if ever, MBT questions in RC. The same applies though; just replacing MBT with MSS, though MBT could help too.

Haha yeah that's what I meant.
And for RC - I think it's trap answer choices. I can always get the answers choices down to two main contenders, with one being the correct answer choice and the one looking more like a trap.. and then I've picked the trap choices. -___-

So drilling > getting a whole new book?

I really liked Manhattan. It's a quick read. I'm probably re-reading it this week sometime.
I get a lot of MBT questions wrong, too. In my case I forget to fact-check each answer. Are you eliminating first, or searching for a right answer? Manhattan recommends you eliminate first . The thing about RC I always forget in the moment is that all the questions are provable by the passage.

Ooo that last sentence. Thank you for reminding me. And yes I eliminate first. I forget to fact-check answers, too. If Manhattan is a quick read - then it wouldn't hurt to look at it yeah? If anything it would probably just reinforce what I already know?

PT 63 Retake, LR 1: -0, LG: -0, LR 2: -1, RC: -0. It's a retake, but it's my first 180, so I'll take it! Confidence = restored.

Manhattan goes very quick and it wouldn't hurt. You said you already read for structure so much of it won't be anything new to you. That said, they do go over in-depth ways of eliminating wrong choices in RC, so that could be very helpful for you.

Taking today off, possibly tomorrow, besides drilling a few games. I really don't want to get burned out or get sick at this point. AND Bee, seems like our study plan is going well, LOL.

OMG, FIRST 180! I'm so excited. but I doubt this weekend will be productive :/



Congrats on the 180!!! Perfect time to have it. :lol:

I did 63 yesterday as well but ended up missing 3 on games.. :evil: It was easy and I auto-piloted. Finished in 25 and decided (stupidly) not to double check.

I thought the RC was pretty tough on this PT. I REALLY hate the fiction/novel one. Sea Otter and seafloor spreading aren't easy either. :(


I really didn't like the sea floor one. Anything geology related is the bane of my interest in science passages. That's some speed for games :D

We'll probably have an easy linear game, a basic grouping game, a very open grouping game ( takes the most time), then a stacked linear game.
