Any value in the TRAINER for a retake?

I've definitely seen this a few times, but can't remember if it was in a book/online/on TLS. I know for the most part (it's pretty obvious going through a test/based on drills), but I want a list ranking them.

Assumptions 15%
Flaws 15%
Strengthen 8%
Weaken 8%
Principle 8%
Analyze the argument 15%

Hello December Takers!
Just started studying a couple of weeks ago. I was supposed to leave with the Peace Corps next month but thanks to a military coup, I'm stateside and law school aimin'. I took my first practice last week (June 2007) and was at 150. Naturally, logic games was my lowest score but did very well in reasoning. I have a pretty rigorous study schedule planned (30 practice tests between now and then, Logic Games Bible, and now you guys!). Anyway, I would really like a 170 so that's what I'm shooting for. I've read the stats and they're not promising in my arena, but aim small, miss small. I said all that to say, any advice those of you with more experience studying might have, send it my way.

But first section was LG at 7:30 AM here. Only got 16/23 but shaved off some time to 40 minutes while eating my cereal. :lol:
In the process of relying more on inferences than brute forcing. Initially started off LG with 50-55 minutes...

Will have to do the other sections tonight after my parents leave!


Yes I'm quoting myself. Parents trolled me and told me they were coming 2 hours later...so I decided to the rest of PT 56 back-to-back-to-back to compensate for the break after the first section. Got a 154 again. In line with my recent improvement.

Taking PT 61 as a diagnostic for a Blueprint course this sunday and will lay off the recent PT's and use the 40's to PT once a week while going through the prep course.

Just finished grading PT60 which I took today

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

Scaled score: 175

This is my highest score to date and has bought back some confidence that I'm actually improving after my terrible performance on pt72 yesterday. Still withdrawing from Saturday's test though.

Finally back to studying, was going to take this Saturday but life seriously got in the way.

Feels like a failure in and of itself that I pushed back my date but time to get to work.

Already worked through the LG bible, so I'm working on the LR Bible and then drilling my life away.

Damn. Puts my 154 to shame. I'll get there soon. :3

So many people withdrawing from Saturday! Wish I was there with you (please no one respond with a "then withdraw!" I can't do that for various reasons I'd rather not get into).
