also, it sounds fucking shitty, but lately ive missed a few main point questions. I narrow it down to two and pick the wrong one. They're so fucking similar its convoluted. Any advice on this as well?

I have same issue on the ones I miss on RC so my advice would leave you In same position

Are you citing text for right answer

There is always a line that justifies an answer

I hate when the names are distracting:
    Kanye (Kayne)
    Spivey
    Your own name
    Your evil ex's name (we all have one)
    Something absolutely impossible to pronounce

Do you remember the game where you're trying to figure out the order of meetings with foreign dignitaries? There was one character named Matsuba, and I just kept seeing "Masturbator" every time I read his name (because I'm a 13 year old boy inside). It was very distracting.


LOL :)

The mirrors passage wasn't even a problem, it was passage 2 and 3 for some reason.


-8 in LR :( is that a super outlier for you? I've had the same thing happen where I go -1 on one section, -4 or -5 on the other. It's a buzzkill for sure- but I mean they do it on purpose.


It is an outlier. Recently, I've been going anywhere from -1 to -4. I think I got distracted because I felt really good after the games section and started thinking (oooh, I just wonder how good I'm going to do here?!) and there were a couple people outside the window talking about how to clear out a hornets' nest. I did it to myself. RC on the other hand I've been very erratic.


That might also be the section everyone calls super hard. What's your current average? I wish I was as solid as you appear to be in LG because our scores seem relatively similar otherwise

Hell no I don't write it out during the test. I'm just saying look to the passage to find something that justifies your answer just like you'd look to a diagram to justify an answer when doing games

Definitely just skip those games and spend your time resting. If you really want to do more studying, go over games you have done and reviewed before.


Whoopsie just seeing this now.

Can you get an extra long run in tomorrow? That's what I'm planning on doing. It actually rained up here today, so I can count on it not raining for at least another few months. That's flawed reasoning generally, but 'round these parts.
