I'm in the library and I just finished erasing the marks from my first take of PT A. I'm sweating, out of breath, and probably have a blister. If my score doesn't increase I'm gonna be PISSED! :)

A black leather fossil watch (inexpensive but classy) he loves it!

I agree, I keep reminding myself that this job is not going to matter much in a few months.

I've been studying since 7am, going to take a break to watch Games of Thrones, so excited :D

I was wondering where you were! I hope you're feeling better! Good move to take a break and rest, but we missed you! ;)

Why do you say next year? Do you not think scoring better in June will get you off the wait list? One of the major reasons I am retaking is to get off my wait lists, and attend this fall...

PT 50 on Wednesday if anyone's interested in taking/reviewing together. Today's review section went really well!

Why don't you intersperse both from here on out? That way, you get a good combination of unfamiliar and recent tests to take.

Have any of you all ever taken a PT very early in the morning...like around 3am?

I want to do 2 PTs on weekends (Sat and Sun) and 1 PT during the week @ 3am and use evenings/afternoons for review/drilling during the week as I work full time.


Does any one have any experience taking PTs so early in the morning?

Really! Did it take you a long time to get alert/awake (assuming that you took a nap and then woke up to take the test).

Has anyone taken PT A recently? I know it's like #18.5 and LGs were messed up back then but do you guys know if game 4 from that PT is relevant at all?

Major milestone for me today. I took PT45, a test I've never before seen.

LR1: -1
RC: -1
LG: -0
LR2: -0

Scaled 180

I've never 180'd a fresh test. It feels good.

But... I only took four sections. I took a break between sections two and three. And I got lucky on a few answers. Before I scored the test, I was guessing low to mid 170s. It still feels nice to get a 180.

Nope straight after working my job as a third grade teacher. I was going to beg off a family trip with the inlaws and study the next day, but changed my mind. Just stayed up and took it.

Eh, ok. Feel like I'm hitting a plateau right at the 170 threshold:

PT 47 - 170 (4-section)
PT 48 - 171 (5-section)

My weakness seems to lie in some of the most difficult Flaw and Weaken questions, so I've been drilling those types with some interspersed RC and LG sections.

PT 44 today.

RC: -3
LR1: -1
LG: -0
LR2: -2

-6 for a scaled 174

Pretty disappointing, especially considering the high I was on yesterday. I think the 174 is definitely more representative of where I am right now, but I want to get as much as possible out of these last couple months. Going to review hard.

Also, I don't know if you all feel this way, but I'm definitely studying less intensely than I did for October. And I think it's helping. I took a whole week off last week, and have been really productive this week. I haven't had any burnout or issues with bad scores. It's going really well so far.

Any other updates out there?

Awesome study group tonight! If you still need help with LG after watching the videos, let me know. I'll be reviewing/drilling and then Saturday is PT 51 for us.
