ugh. i hate this damn test. the next week cannot come fast enough.


Q25 I assume? I think that the idea is that that's just the point - these advertisements are not necessary if B is true, and thus the objection to direct mail advertisements, viz., that these are somehow bad for the environment, fails. IT fails because it doesn't even make people buy more shit, so how could they have a detrimental effect on the environment? (The background assumption is that the causal mechanism by way of which they have this detrimental effect is through getting people to buy shit, or otherwise the whole thing makes zero sense.) As the point of the argument is that the objection to direct mail advertisement fails, B strengthens the argument.

I agree that this is a ridiculous question.

Tied a PB. LG was reallllly easy on this one. I understood every single RC passage. I felt so confident. Still missed 5. Unreal. Good thing the curve was very generous.


Screw you! :evil:

OUCH! By gross score, definitely the worst PT I've ever had. I can't believe I missed so much throughout, and I'm especially concerned at the LG scores. What a horrific test. Going to get lunch then review the shit out of this thing. The only victory is that the curved score is close to my average and above my minimum target.

ETA: 7Sage sucks at displaying PT analytics.


Sorry our PT analytics haven't lived up to expectations! Could you please let me know what in particular is displaying poorly? I'd love to make it better, and it would really help if you could elaborate!

Most even split ever? Happy with the score. Made another careless error on LG. I'm gonna be drilling LG the most this week cause its a -0 I would like to be able to depend on come test day.


OMG I AM TAKING THIS RIGHT NOW I HOPE YOUR SCORE IS INDICATIVE OF MINE.

I misread a rule on the third game and it really threw me off. I was able to complete in time with a few minutes to spare (somehow), but feel very shaky about it. Concerned that I might have made mistakes in my haste. LG was not difficult; I was just up in the clouds and couldn't seem to remember any of the damn rules.

Did an RC experimental from 46, though, and loved every minute of it.

ETA: When I'm on dat break and pumped and can't wait to return to my seat to get back to the test.

Checked out my test center today and it was pretty solid. Desk size is good but not great.

PT 71 today and that'll be the last one before gameday.

Was just feeling really grumpy because my PT this morning was awful, and I'm sick, and I missed the bus and had to walk home thirty minutes with bags of groceries.

Bumped into this homeless man I know while I was walking, and he pointed out that it's already starting to get really cold. I realized that my problems are kinda stupid.

71 was what I took this morning and it was basically life ruining, don't worry.

That last passage about mirrors I was like "AM I HIGH?? WHAT IS THIS???"

In retrospect, probably a little high. Thanks, sudafed!

Holy shit the mirrors passage. I'm not a spatial or a science person at all, so trying to figure out what the hell was going on was pretty absurd. Other than that, the passages weren't inherently difficult, but I struggled with the questions. I struggled to get a definite answer on most of them and instead went with what seemed like the best answer. In reviewing the LG, two of the ones I missed were suspension questions. I definitely shouldn't have missed them. The third one I ran out of time and picked the one that worked the best in the thirty seconds I had. Still, 3 questions missed on LG is reprehensible.
