Did decent in LR and LG (viruses got me -2) but RC... man I don't even know what to say. 8 don't care how bad I feel, I should never go -7 in any section ever. I guess I'll try blind reviewing it? Ended up with a 167 and a bruised ego.
I guess we all took hits today. Took PT 75 and got 170. -6 RC. Some answers in that section are so absurd I can't even comprehend them. Take 2.11. How tf is the answer C? In the passage it literally says "Therefore, [answer choice B]. Accordingly, [stimulus]." And yet the inference you're supposed to make is supposed to be from the second fucking paragraph? #22 is another ridiculous one. The passage says that "until
the nineteenth century, [a certain practice was common]" Meaning that the practice continued up until the nineteenth century, and changed during that century. But apparently the right answer is B instead of A?
Also took PT 75 on Friday.
LR 1: -1
LR 2: -4 (including one circling error because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)
PT 14.4 (LR): -3
PT 15.4 (LG): 0
Notes: First time I did PT two days after the previous one (gonna be the last time too). LG: Pretty straightforward. LR: Around 4 mistakes can be avoided. I still think that I was right for 14.4 Q21, but ok. RC: Finished the section feeling pretty well, did BR and was ambivalent about maybe 1 question, checked the answer key and figured I got 3 questions wrong (among which are Q.11 and Q.16). What was that?!
What the hell is that curve?!
I definitely feel a shift in LR for the most recent 70's. Some assumption questions are downright brutal, and the weaken/strengthen questions become more subtle. I don't think they are harder than earlier PTs per se, but there's a difference that I couldn't exactly pinpoint between PT 60s and PT 70s. To get this score after slowly but steadily improving to scoring 175+ consistently makes me want to just burn my LSAT books and give up.
Need to review all the hard LR questions. Could anyone PM me how the LG games in Superprep 1 and Superprep 2 are?
