+1. I really wanted to break 170 though.

169
LR: -2
LG: -4
RC: -4
LR: -2

Damn that last game panic. It made all of the difference.

ETA: Score and post number match. Coinkydink?

Ugh so frustrating. I only needed 1 more question right to reach my goal (got a 169 wanted a 170) and I can where I changed it from a right answer to a wrong answer as well, but two of my right answers I originally had wrong so I guess if I had the "first instinct" set in stone I would've ended up getting even more questions wrong. Oh well

I was hoping to improve just a few points from my 166 from December. I left two questions blank and changed 1 question from the right answer to the wrong answer. If I would have filled in those two questions; which, I had the answers for and left that question alone I would have improved my score by those few points. That was my final retake so I am left with my 166. Needless to say I am incredibly frustrated.


If it makes you feel better, I counted SIX...yes SIX times on my score sheet where I erased the correct answer choice and chose the wrong one. Would've bumped my score up 4-5 points

I keep getting a lot of "oh my gosh jumbo that's so great!" from friends and family. I'm not really sure how to take it which I think is somewhat related to the fact that I'm not sure how I feel about my score personally.

Yeah, brutal. It's just so close. Is that your first time taking?


Yeah it was. I'm retaking in October. Trying to plan out my study schedule as we speak

+1. I feel good about where I am based on that data. Was really considering a retake but looking over the questions I missed finding it really hard to see where a dramatic improvement could come from.

On the subject of retake or not, is there a consensus about if retaking a low 170s score could lead do a decrease since you are operating with so little room for error?

Studying starts tomorrow for me. I used TPR, which is what I think killed me for the June test.

7sage, last trainer, powerscore, Manhattan prep.
What do you guys recommend?
I'm good with LG, LR & RC are my weaknesses. Especially LR.
