Took PT 51:

Before Blind Review (After BR)
LR1: -4 (-2)
RC: -10 (-2) :evil: (ran out of time reading passage 4)
LR2: -8 (-2) (a lady thought the library was a good place to recount her ENTIRE Labor Day weekend over the phone)
LG: -0 (-0)
Score: 162 (176)

For me this was about average with the exception of LR2. My biggest weakness seems to be timing in the RC section, as I usually go -8/-10, and NEVER get to the questions for the last passage. I spend an average of 4 minutes reading a passage (too long) and roughly twice as long answering the questions for each passage (waaaay too long). Of the questions I do have adequate time to answer, I miss 1 for the section on average. I think I just need to speed the hell up.

What are some specific tactics that y'all use to keep things moving during RC?

DYING.


im real serious grey the "targeting certain parts of the brain" is more controversial than tDCS as a whole but i have no problem being a guinea pig w this thing the only thing i wont do is shave my head but that can be avoided by getting sponges n soaking them in saline solution

im really thinking about trying it on my fiance with LGs n seeing if it makes any difference at all i think that would b pretty cool

I'm not going to lie to you guys, 62-64 felt much harder. Maybe it was me and I just wasn't in the best frame of mind for those PTs, but at least 65 was nice.



I accidentally skipped 61, and took 62 last Saturday and got a 172 (my highest score yet). I did the best I've ever done on reading (-3), and did good on LGs even though it felt kinda hard, granted I took an extra 30 second or a minute on LG.

I took 61 yesterday, with the RC from 47 for an experimental, and got my worst score in a month and a half. I got a 165, which I guess isn't terrible, but I'm shooting for a 172+. In terms of RC, I got -9 on experimental and -9 and the real RC. It's just incredibly frustrating, as I think I understand the passage pretty well, but the questions they ask are just so misleading or something.

I hope not. Taking that one in the next hour or two. Did 60 yesterday and finished with my lowest score in my last 10 PTs. I heard 62 is a bitch too. Getting 3 awful scores in a row just might crush my soul. Will report back later today.

ETA - Great 300th post! Only took me 7 years.


What exactly is hard about these tests guys compared to others


PT 62 had one of the hardest LR questions ever (at least to me): LR2 #18. Also, both LRs had 26 questions, which could be a little intimidating for those who check the total # of questions first each section.

OMG, that explains it. I took 66 as my diagnostic and received a 164, then dropped down to 160 for 62 and 64 after studying for a week or two, and was so upset that I cried after I finished the second. A lot of crying was had. Lots.

past few days I have been waking up earlier and earlier, trying to get ready for the LSAT come test day, but today I think I got up way too early: 11am. I'm feeling it!
