I just didn't get any of Noguchi. I actually found basins and Dutch agriculture fairly easy, but Noguchi owned me.

Yeah, I redid PT70 LG I realized that it was not at all the difficult I felt in the room.
I couldn't sleep after I got my mark back and got -2 in ~30 min at 3 am that night. Not as strong as your showing, but nowhere near the disaster I went through.

I also went through my answer sheet and found that I changed my mind 6 times in my LR sections (2 of them saved me, 4 of them I actually erased the correct answer and went with the trap answer).

there was only one hard q in dutch agriculture, but it was actually so bizarre that it's still emblazoned in my brain--the one asking you to compare weed killing to newspaper editorials designed to destroy an opposite political party


like how high do you have to be to come up with that shit

Dat blackmail and tintype photography passage....OMG.

I would love something similar to October's RC. Straightforward passages that were actually engaging!

Basins was not too bad for me.

Dutch agriculture killed me both times I PT'ed it. There is something about the way that article is written that I cannot connect with, it's beyond just dense or boring, it's when you try to imagine X Y Z plot being changed and it almost reads like a possible logic game combo.

Noguchi bored me too much when I read it because I couldn't imagine what he's producing and how it is special, so I couldn't answer the questions about the implications of his art or whatever ideas the questions tackled.

I would say that Dutch agriculture questions were more straightforward to answer, but Noguchi's questions were tricky as hell.

Ya, I found the content of October's RC quite readable, and I've actually done some research on the relationship between money and happiness so the one passage was very relevant to my interests.

Same

My friends and I were debating the $75K: is it the magic number (wage-life balance) articles and other related ideas during the summer.

The consensus is no given our jobs but generally it would be if we moved out of our city.

That could be the hardest question ever in RC. Tough passage for sure, but that question in particular....

What I find interesting is the strong evidence of some magic number in terms of happiness, but not in terms of health. The positive impact of money on health is apparent even when comparing a group of billionaires to multimillionaires; it seems as if there is no point beyond which increasing wealth isn't associated with better health.

Mo money, mo health.

Yeah, what a strange phenomenon. Income inequality might be the number one determinant of health outcomes and life expectancy.

What I find interesting is that fact that the relationship never ends. It's quite obvious that someone who cannot afford decent medical care, for example, may generally not live as long as those who can, but when you get to the very high levels of income you're dealing with similarly educated people who can afford practically any type of care, nutrition, etc.

I scored 173 and I'm not retaking. I just came into the thread to give my opinion on RC strategy and somehow ended up posting a bunch of times on other matters. If anyone asks for LR or RC advice (-5 on LG, so you don't want me giving you advice on that section) I'll probably pop in to give my opinion.

PT65 is the hardest RC section that exists. I took it 2 days before the test and it fucked up my confidence real bad
