Ya don't spend any more time than that on writing.

I am still really struggling to finish RC in time. I've identified the problem as me taking too long to answer the questions (choosing between two choices and wasting time referring back to the passage and thus rereading parts). When you guys/gals read the passage, do you actively take 10-20 seconds after each paragraph to summarize it to yourself? I don't and I am wondering if maybe that time invested upfront will help me on the back-end when it comes to answering the questions more quickly.

PT 68

RC -8
LR -5
LR -1
LG -5

165, it feels good to get my highest score on a fresh PT :)

-5 from LG all came from that last game which, in my opinion, is so much easier than the 3rd game. My only -1 in LR2 was question 22 which is a stupid parallel reasoning question.

PT 46

RC Exp: -1
RC: -7 (-5, 2 omitted ran out of time)
LR 1: -2
LR 2: -3
LG: -0

Raw 87
Score: 167

holy crap curve guys. -12 was 167. Not an ego booster in number BUT I'm pretty happy with each section total minus that stinky RC.

bro that sounds brutal. I think I'll try that tomorrow.

I spent so much time fine-tuning LR and cranking out RC that my LG skills have atrophied just a touch. Accuracy isn't a problem, but I'm not finishing them as fast as I used to, which leaves me with less time to potentially brute force tough games. I'm PT and reviewing today, but I think tomorrow I'm going to do some crazy LG drilling, along with Chill Out's 4 RC sections baq2baq.

Spoiler alert for PT 68



Passage 3 was such a pain. That question about the author being indifferent or receptive was stupid lol. (#20 as well.) How much info did you guys retain while reading it? I felt similar to how I felt after reading !Kung (unclear about some things but solid on structure) but I still managed to go -2 on time. Is this a thing for these recent passages?
