How much harder are the more recent practice tests?

Postby 179orBust » Thu Jun 11, 2015 1:59 pm

Making a PT schedule for October exam and I think it's best if I take some of the newer tests earlier in the schedule instead of right before the exam. Is this the right approach?
Almost everyone says that the recent practice are more difficult and I want to review those tests properly, without feeling rushed.
For the people who have taken the test already how much harder are these newer exams (65+)?

I didn't notice a significant increase in difficulty in exams from 56 -> onwards. But those were the only ones I took. I drilled with 1 - 50 for months and the real increase in difficulty I noticed between those and the actual PTs I took was the individual LR Qs were slightly more complicated. Also RC seemed to have a little more nuance to it.

I agree with vulpes--save the latest few to do last as they will most resemble your real test.

As far as difficulty goes, it really depends on your strengths and weaknesses. I find them harder because, although LG is more predictable (easier), RC is much more nuanced, and this change, along with the comparative passage, affects my score more than the increased LG difficulty. I also think LR has gotten a little more difficult, but I don't have anything to back that up.
