Anyone else get that?

yeah, process of elimination is a must on these newer PTs.

hrrrrmmmm.

I always play Skyrim or something to relax before a PT, I think it actually helps.

are these fresh tests or been taken before for oct?

I took all of the recent ones before October (unfortunately :( ) the only fresh ones I have are the reeeaaalllyyy early ones, so I'm just using those to practice sets here and there. I didn't remember this one at all, luckily.

Just finished 73, took it Sep 16th and got a 173, today I got a 176 (before br)

RC: -3
LR1: -0
LG: -0
LR2: -3

I'm ok with this performance. :)

i usually try not to diagram as it takes time, but there are some that become clear when diagrammed

So, I've only been drilling the highest difficulty LG and RC stuff from the Cambridge packets. Should I be worried about timing if they're taking about 9:30-9:55 to finish, or is that just due to the difficulty?

I've never diagrammed a LR question.


Really? Holy shit it can make some questions unbelievably easy, most notably MBT, SA (sometimes), NA (very rarely, I personally never use it for these but some do) and P/PF/F sometimes.


Disagree. I no longer have to diagram MBT or parallel q's because I've seen them so many times. The reasoning is instaneous. SA I still diagram, but that's only when I don't understand the question fully. Generally the first LG I have very minimal markings on as well.

I woulda tied you but I made a really dumb error in LG.


I half guessed on the rule substitution LG question, so that was just luck on my part lol

Does anyone else really struggle with undetermined assignment? I keep drilling it, only to reach the second or third question and realize, "Huh, I missed some fundamental inference/I graphed this wrong."

question for those who don't miss much on LR: for the first 10-15 questions, do you check every answer choice? Sometimes I do and think it's just a waste of time on the easier questions and takes away time I could spend on the parallel flaw question I never have time for at the end lol.
