PT 32: 165
I did a 5th section LR and scored -5. So pretty consistent with where I'm at right now.
I found this games section to be very difficult. Part of the difficulty was that there was a double layered sequencing game that gave me absolutely zero space to work, I scored -3 on that game alone. Very frustrating. I reviewed all of the sections. I completed each section with time remaining, for LR I was accurate in doing 15 in 15. My wrong answers came within the last 10 questions. I need to slow down after the 15 in 15, I have a hard time shifting pace.
For RC, the questions that got to me were mostly "inference" based questions. I think I have to take a look at the scope of those questions. For inference, my understanding now is that the correct answer should be broader in scope, looking at the big picture of the passage. Correct me if I'm wrong.
The next couple days I will spend re-doing the RC passages and games that I didn't go -0, and drilling flaw/weaken. I will also take a couple more full sections before taking another PT on Saturday. 170 here we come!
I'm pretty much the opposite in regards to the bolded. I need to slow down a bit on the first 15, I'm usually pretty good with the last 10. LR is definitely my weakness.
Anyways, a 165 is still a pretty good score, especially since you have room in LG. Just keep drilling, and I think LG will improve. Double layer sequencing games are pretty tough, but conquerable.
For RC, I found that slowing down in the passages really helped. My understanding is that Inference questions are essentially MBT questions. If the author (of the portion of the passage in question) wouldn't agree with it, the AC is wrong.
