I'm still irritated I got -9 on my strongest section, but Trainer's LR lessons are helping me like it again.

I just couldn't get a good set-up. I had never seen anything like it and was lost on what to do.

I don't have the best frame of reference, but I don't think anything (bar a few specific questions maybe) from test 70 deserves enshrinement in a top 10 most difficult list.

Certain LR questions could be up there. But it mostly was just a very tough section in general- no killer questions, just some nearly-killer ones next to each other.

Def not LG. Prob not RC, even though it fucked me

The RC was just awkwardly formatted at times (think the comparative q with the functions on top of each other).

Just saying. My score was on me running out of steam at the end. I'd take the same difficulty test in December gladly.

I agree. That LR didn't have any killers, but I'd call the section as a whole one of the toughest I've ever done.

eta by which I mean LR 2


Have barely looked at it. All I know is I got the stars q right and I recall some people yelling about that one, but I missed 6 in the 26q section alone, and noticed 2-3 misses were bunched together. I might've been exhausted since it was the last section but I've been exhausted on a PT here and there and have still done respectable.

What I thought was most notable about the LR was the stimuli length. To me the questions seemed similar to PT 1-20 questions in terms of having a lot of reading to do.

Other than that I found both sections fairly straight-forward, though the wording for some of the right answers seemed more awkward than usual imo.

It just didn't feel like a 60s test to me. The LG felt 50s, the RC felt old, and the LR felt old.

Retakers, how many days before the test did you take your last PT?

What's up with the extended December wait? I just registered an hour ago and saw a Jan. 6 release. Brutal.

Idk if it was jitters or freaking out because I did it fine after reviewing, but I totally bombed the movies game on 70 and made some sick and distorted diagram that Ive never made before. Pretty much did 3 categories on the bottom for each screen and split the 1st and 3rd in half with a 7 and 9 time on each. Helped me make 0 inferences. In hindsight it was pretty easy, but did anyone else mess up diagramming this?

LR def felt like 60s to me. if it was similar to 40s i would have gone -20


I agree it didn't feel like 40s or else yes...it would've been about that.
