161, I'll own it. Quite the fall from the 167 a few days ago.
Had a really crappy LR performance. Really going to assess what happened tomorrow and regroup.

18 more PTs scheduled. Congrats to everyone else. Everyone seemed to do very well for themselves.
I'm going to take another one in a few days so hopefully I'll have a nice redemption story. Haha

your using the multiple people who said they did relatively well and drawing the conclusion that we all did well... watch your flaws bro (for I did not do very well)


Way to be looking out for flaws, Jgoods!

Dropping in your score like that is disappointing... but my life motto has become: "When you're pushed down, fight harder." You're dedicated enough to ensure that it'll all go uphill from here.

My goal at this point is to get a 165 by Oct 25, otherwise I might just decide to switch to Feb. If I can hit a 165 by then, hopefully I can pull off a 170 by test day.


:shock: Damn. That puts my measly 40 LR and 1 LG to shame.


Jgoods... your positive energy makes me happy :).

What smoothies? :shock:

So LG #4 on PrepTest 31 is a hater. Got everything correct but in 17 minutes =,(

ETA:
#@^&%#*##^#%(%Y Just realized I misread a major part of the question. :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x

ETA2: So glad that apparently LG2 on 31 is known to be a difficult one. Now I don't feel AS bad about my 15m34. But seriously... need to cut my timing down.

I don't really care which one. I have so many to do. I still haven't done the free 51.5 so I'll try to do that during the week.


Im good with 56 or 58 or any other test really. I don't mind retaking a test. I just liked the accountability knowing others were testing, too.

I can do 58. Taking 60, 62-65 with BP. And I will sprinkle PT's 66-73 in between in November/first week of December.

Had an "ah ha" moment in RC this morning during my BP workshop. A lot of the question prompts are must be true, soft must be true, must be false, or soft must be false. Once I recognized that I was easily able to eliminate wrong choices. At first I didn't get why BP was drilling those questions so much, but now I get it! I finally think I can get over my RC hurdle!

Can somebody explain what "soft" means in regards to this?


BP classifies strongly support questions as soft MBT's.
So Questions like Must be True are fairly restrictive when it comes to answer choices where it must be 100% proven.

Whereas soft must be true (most strongly support) answer choices can be reasonably inferred from the stimulus, but not necessarily 100% backed up.

Oh, I've got it now. I thought I was out of the loop on some big RC secret.


haha. It's just an easy way to classify Q-types for us.

The important part is if you see either of the prompts your answer should have weak language in it. You are looking for words like some, may, can, could, few, certain, etc. if you see words like all, will, every, always, most, etc. ou can cross those off 95% of the time because the language is too strong.

That helped me a lot. Prior, I used to always narrow down to 2 attractive answers with one being strong and one being weak. And then I would blindly guess 50/50. But I think the class is def worth it, I got my first 20 right on a section (LR) past 2 PT's!

MSS is basically MBT and to overthink it can be a detriment
