So I've done two pts since last posting.. the first of which was pt 56 and i got a 165.. second was pt 57, and I took that yesterday, and got a 171!
During pt 57 I tried some 'positive thinking strategies'--like thinking all preparation is but a problem at a time, and while only the dec. 6 problems 'matter' all of the problems matter because they improve your reasoning skills which is good not only for law school but for life. With that I took to each problem as a sort of duty-bound hurdle--like a bunch of BS is fluffed around the problem and it's up to you to cut through it. I also took a playful attitude to it, rather than a brooding serious attitude to it, which, I think can be harmful. Also tried smiling at parts and stopped to close my eyes and take a deep breath at others. Anyhow the neurosis aside..
LR exp. 24/25
LG exp. 22/23
LR 2: 22/25
I think I will have to drill RC for the sake of RC and focus on the numbers/loans/percentage/just-too-many-conditions-esque LR Qs before next PT. Overall I am stoked and ready to push on! Cheers!!
