The game required the use of at least "three features" which I originally interpreted as needing to use at least 3 of the 4 different kinds of pieces which was not the case, three individual instances of just one of those game pieces would be satisfactory.

As far as I can remember, I've not come across a game like that where they've been so esoteric in labeling the game pieces like this.

This is exactly what got me, I was looking at one question for probably 4 minutes thinking "there's two right answers, wtf!" and finally realized this when I gave up and moved onto the next question. Not a tough game at all knowing that, but prior to that... it had me lol.

Yeah once I figured that out I flew through it. Had they called the types of features like "genres" or something and referred to the individual stories as "features" to make the distinction clear, it would've been a 5 minute game for sure.

yeah....during the real June test, I had maybe 6-7 minutes and the wording paralyzed me...straight up guessed on all 5 questions. Luckily managed to get 2/5 but man...I was not in a good mood for the rest of my sections.

So, PT 75 tomorrow is my best bet for this week right guys? Most people are telling me not to study on Friday.

Humanities was rough since it's my worst subject but I have been doing them fairly regularly since early July. We'll see if it helped at all...

I had to apply for a new passport and got a pic a month ago. When I took it, the guy told me not to smile, bc you can't in passports. The pic legit looks like a mugshot. It'll probably be the worst pic they see all day on Saturday.

I'm taking PT 75 tomorrow and reviewing it, doing some drilling on Thursday, and Friday will consist of relaxing and prayer. Good luck in these final days folks!

Last time I just took a picture with my phone and printed it out at home, had no problems with it so I'll just do that again most likely.


It's like $8 to get it done at CVS or Walgreens or whatever drug store is near you. I wouldn't risk it! I got regular passport-style photos.

I feel like I've been getting more wrong by trying pick answers based on anticipations.

Is it odd that my strategy is generally never to anticipate? I feel like I never do LR by the book but I rarely miss any.

I wholeheartedly practice this approach. I feel like trying to anticipate an answer opens you up to sneaky tricks in the choices.
