Okay, I took it! As tempted as I am to score it, I"m waiting until I BR it. I can never do a BR and test within several hours of each other, and seeing as how it is already 7 PM my guess is I'll be doing it tomorrow. Below is a list of my impressions.


[+] Spoiler
1. First off, practicing on old tests did not really help prepare me for this at all. There were a ton of Justify questions, which although I understand have not had exposure to. Prior to this the highest test I've worked on was 45.

2. I got through the games only not having time for 1 question, which is pretty uncharacteristic of me...I took a quick look at the end and realized I graphed them all pretty ineffectively and was able to solve the unanswered one within 10 seconds. Sigh. Still confident I went -2 or so.

3. RC answers are BEASTS compared to the old ones! Man, it really made me realize how terrible I am at RC. DIdn't even get to the last one at all. On the bright side this should be some easy improvement, but still discouraging.

4. Burned out baaaad on the fourth section (I didn't do an experimental and had a 5 minute break between 12 and 34.) I'll blame it on the library that was 87 degrees inside Next time if I don't do experimental I'll do 123 / 4. Thinking about it, I'll probably just do an experimental..

So yeah, I'm hoping you guys all had a better experience than me! :D the good news is that I felt significantly more confident on the first section (LR) than I usually do, so I feel like that studying is paying off. Gonna do a BR tomorrow and work on my PS, then evaluate what I need to work on based on my shortcomings this time around and make a plan for the upcoming week. We should all test together more often, because it really got me motivated to get up and out of my apartment! I"m going to try and take two tests a week from here on out and finish all of my LR drills (only made a dent in Flaw and assumption). Not to mention RC!

Sorry to hear that man, my condolences to you and his family.

Finally felt comfortable enough to take the 15min 15 question approach to LR. Eneed up going -8 in the first and -5 in the second. -_-. I was also cocky with the LG section again and missed 4. RC -8. 161. While doing the test I thought I was finally in the midst of a 170.

Took PT68 today. Felt so out of it. I haven't BR'd it yet but...I don't know, maybe I've been pushing too hard in preparation for my last shot. I don't want to burn out. I probably did alright but I like, could barely get myself to finish it.

I dont know what's with me and LR. I re-read manhattan Lr book and I think I get it. But I'm missing so many questions, especially point at issue, paradox, weaken. hmm pretty much all types. lol I don't know what to do. Drilling doesnt seem to help much :(

PT66: 15 wrong, with BR -12

So original score is 167 ugh ugh ugh
I also found out I got a lot of the questjons that I didn't "circle" and therefore did not do a blind review.

Planning on not doing a PT tomm but probably doing drilling and timed sec

REALLY WANT TO GET TO SAFE ZONE- 170 or higher!

Only taking Feb test but this thread is more active so...

Best techniques for RC? I'm extremely inconcsistent here.

I keep switching between taking zero notations but just memorizing between paragraphs (similar to 7sage memory method) and trying a notation system similar to voyager's with underlining/boxing/writing shorthand notes in margins... Can't decide. I guess I should just keep experimenting and see what I like.
