Just took PT 75:

Score: 169
LR1: -0
LR (experimental): -1
RC: -5
LR: -2
LG: -5


I'm pretty mad at myself for RC and LG. 4 out of the 5 RC questions I missed were on the final passage, which is (always) science. THIS KEEPS HAPPENING. I'd really appreciate any and all advice on how to fix this.

The LG section just threw me for a complete loop. I've been doing old PT's, and it seems like those LG's were way easier/different.


This should've been a 175+, just too many stupid mistakes.

how do you do the order of the passages?

for approaching science passage, i find that its helpful to not get bogged down in understanding processes. often the processes introduced in the passage are really only evidence, so maybe just remember to loosely relate it back to the concl that its being used to support and then refer back to it later when the questions ask you. it too much to remember all up front.



I just do them start to finish, which inevitable leads me to struggle with timing on the 4th passage, which is usually/always science. Science is my weakest RC type, even though I drilled it non stop a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I should flip to the science passage, do that, and then do the rest of the sections?

i changed up my strategy to go for the passages with the most questions first and it helped a lot, so i would at least recommend that. i tend to think that they make p4 a very dense passage, even if its easier, just to force people to struggle.



OK, so a good plan would be to do the passages backwards? Bubbling really isn't an issue for me, so I don't think it would mess me up in that regard.
