nice. but how did you ace that last game in 65? That game was confusing as hell.


simple linear game just a little different with the timing. the block of gg should help + the w t thing should constrain it pretty well.

gj chimera.

After the week from hell at work, I decided to nut up and take PT 70, which I took for real nearly a year ago.

Oct 2013 - 165
S1 LR1: -2
S2 RC: -8
S3 LG: -6
S4: LR2: -2

PT70 - 175
S1 LR1: -1
S2 (PT33 S3 LR2): -0
S3 RC: -3
S4 LG: -2
S5 (PT 33 S4 LG): -0
S6 LR2: -0

In general, I'm very happy with the score jump. I've really improved on my LG and RC skills from a year ago and my decent LR has remained consistent. Not happy with the RC or LG scores in the PT retake - one of the LGs was a CR I changed to a wrong answer in the last 30 seconds. I really just disliked these RC passages in general. As others have said, the recent PTs seem to have tricker RC questions.

Two year anniversary with my girlfriend coming up after the LSAT...would a TCR anniversary gift be BR clothes? She doesn't wear jewelry that much and is working on increasing her professional wardrobe.

We'll at least go to the city for dinner and an evening, but I'm thinking about getting a hotel room and recreating Clive Bixby from Modern Family because we both love watching that show.

I don't really know what to do about RC, I usually get -2 or -3, but on maybe a third of all PT's I end up with -5 or more. Just yesterday I got -0 on an RC section, it was an older one, but still I finished with time to spare, and on today's test I got 6 wrong and didn't finish. My LR is not completely out of range for me, though slightly lower than I've been scoring most recently. My LG is pretty standard as well.

My score is fluctuating wildly and I do not know why, PLEASE HELP.


I empathize. I got -2 on pt3 RC last night w 5 min to spare, today I got freaking -6 on 62 RC.

Just finished PT 68. The games section starts super easy but I found the second half to be hard as fuck - I breezed through the first two games in 8 mins total or so, but struggled with the third game, and struggled even more with the fourth. I missed only 1 question but finished with 30 secs left on the clock.

For me RC is the section that suffers most from being tired/bored/unmotivated, as you need to stay focused for much longer than for LR or LG, where you can just approach the questions one at a time and (assuming your LG set up is OK) don't need to keep more than one or two bits of info in your head. So that might play a role. Also the RC questions on the recent tests are harder in my experience; the "which statement would the author agree with" often seem a stretch for example, and the "what sort of proposal is most similar" as well (I mean, they sometimes ask you to compare the construction of a car to a social policy or some shit like that)

My ideal section breakdown would be RC 1st LR LR then Lg for this very reason

That's what my June test looked like (w/ exp. LG as the third section before the break) and I must say I'd much rather start w/ one section of LR, which for me is far and away the most comfortable part, to warm up, before either RC or LG.

ETA: having RC last would be pretty much the worst
