So I was really afraid of Pt 62, so I originally skipped it but I decided today I would just do it section by section throughout the day rather than sit down and do a full PT. I basically did it in two sitting but checked the answers after each section. So I'm not counting this obviously- but:

RC: -4
LR: -6
LG: -2
LR: -2

For a scaled score of 170!! I probably wouldn't have scored this in one sitting but I'm happy regardless- I've yet to score a 170 on a full PT. I'm considering this a victory because I know this one was supposed to be pretty tough.

That's still pretty fucking awesome for a test so many of us disliked. Nice work!

im content with missing 4-5 now. i rarely get less than that. its like there is always one q in 3 of the passages that is like stupid retarded. then its like oh ya huh when reviewing. so its like ya.

then im like ok since im dumb, let me bubble in the wrong answer choice two more times for a nice -5, or a -6.

if somehow the stars align and i get -2 in rc. i swear i dont care if i get a 145, that shits cash.

I'm really good at remembering long strings of numbers. The most useful thing about this is dialing from memory and typing in the codes when I do self checkout with produce at the supermarket.

The arm thing is like... I can reach around and grab my hands being my back (one over my shoulder, one under, like that stretch) and then keep going until they're in front of me. Hard to explain.


Oooh, I know what you mean. Seen that before. Never fails to impress (and also make a little uncomfortable).

I like the first talent. You and Colonel! I wish I had more of an affinity for numbers.

I was just going to bring a Luna bar. Honestly not understanding how PTing makes people hungry. I usually have a handful of nuts or chocolate raisins only because I'm bored waiting in my kitchen to start the PT back up.

I think I'm going to take Bill's suggestion and bring a five-hour energy, just in case. I usually just have three cups of tea before a PT, and that holds me over, but better safe than sorry.
