i got -3 on my reading comp today for pt 75. very happpy about that! not trying to one up you, lol. very good LR.. howd you do on 76's LR?


Taking it tomorrow :oops:

I wonder if it could be beneficial to take PT 76 in 5 parts throughout the day as opposed to a whole exam in one sitting, and that way if I do well, then I can feel confident, and if I don't do well, I won't have that score looming in the back of my head depleting me of all hope


mhhhh I'm not sure. I feel like taking it as a whole would be good practice. if you feel like you did bad, maybe just dont score it? maybe someone else can weigh in

just finished reviewing PT 75: 167/172 BR. The LRs I missed were in the first 15 which I'm kicking myself for but if I can pull a 172 Saturday I will be extremely happy

RC -3

It seriously baffles me how you guys could struggle slightly with LG and do so good on RC. I got -6 on 76RC and I felt pretty confident about it. The RC felt 10x harder than any of the other sections.

I feel like I'm naturally bad at LG and have put in a ton of work for LG and RC, I guess it just pays off more for RC for me. I wish I could get -0's

-1 and -2 (stupid mistakes) for LRs.

Planning on taking a break and re-reading MLSAT's anticipate approach for RC and doing couple passages untimed. Re RC, timing is no longer an issue for me but I feel like i interchanged timing w accuracy.

RC is just a bomb for me. Some days i go -2 or -3, other days (recently) I go at least -5

youre normally better/much better on LG? could be burnout.


that last game really did me in i think. the newer lg's feel tougher on time. idk i feel like i need to drill some of the older ones or something? obvs don't have time for that if i take dec.

rc is such a throw too. i never know if i'm going -5, -3, or -1. i felt good about these passages too. ugh.

I often find myself on a downward slope for RC. It's like, I start off great...then it all just kind of goes downhill. But I don't even think it's because the later passages are significantly more difficult...I think it's just that I start getting nervous about time and rushing through the passages, not engaging with or absorbing the material.


rc's really taken a turn for the worse. i'm esp frustrated because it started out being my best section. on the older ones, before the 50's i was consistently finishing before the clock and rarely missing anything. i don't know what happened or how to change it.... trying to read faster clearly isn't doing anything for me since i'm still getting -5s.

is there any rc advice out there from ppl who consistently get -0/1?

I was very hesitant to pick the credited choice for 74.LR2.7. anyone felt the choice was odd?
[+] Spoiler
It assumes the flaw that if two events are correlated, so one can "reasonably conclude" that stress sometimes reduces the pain. For all we know, since those who experience less pain and are waiting to find out if they'll receive surgery, they could be bottling up the pain which is leading to uncertainty/stress. So it could be the other way around, where uncertainty is causing less pain, more stress, or not feeling pain is causing more stress. I ended up picking B as it didn't commit a flaw and was in line with "one can reasonably conclude".

The shit show continues: 8 not attempted and 8 wrong for a 169 in PT 71.

You got this! Plenty time to pick up the nuances until the test and you'll be back on that range
