I've been pretty much drilling LR because its my weakest point and have yet to touch LG because I'm already fairly good at it, just need to nail down timing a bit better. Definitely feel behind the eight ball seeing all of you already going PT after PT.
You definitely need to do at least one PT every week starting the last week of August. You cannot go into the test without at least 2-4 PTs under your belt. I didn't when I took last October and it definitely hurt me.
Do PTs themselves help with timing?
Yes, PTs will help with timing in that you're doing a bunch of timed sections. PTs reinforce your fundamentals and develop time management and stamina skills. The latter skills are why you really need to PT before a test. Certainly timed sections are relevant and worthwhile, especially while drilling, but they're not replicating the intellectual stress of a full-length test with scantron.
Definitely see that in the 3 PTs I've done. Completely DEAD by the end of it, and they are only 4 sections. What about drilling with the earlier PTs? More than likely I would just use them for experimental sections anyways, any experience with just drilling full sections at a time? Or would it be better to use them as experimentals.
