I'm getting to my center by 11 and am warming up with 1 LG that usually gives me the most trouble, 1 RC passage, 10-15 LR questions.

I'm thankful this is 12:30. I'm not a morning person and having to drive to my center during rush hour traffic would mean up that much earlier and that much less sleep.



The June test is always Monday at 12:30

This might be dumb, but do I just go to the address on my ticket PDF. All it gives me is an address but no room number. I know the address is the university's student center, when I head there will they give me a room number?

Wait, we couldn't drink when we are doing the test?! Can't even take a sip or something?

PT 73
172
RC -2
LR -2
AR -3
LR2 -3

Honestly lucky to have not missed more AR. There were 5 or 6 educated guesses in there. Still I've been nothing if not consistent lately. Last 4 PTs: 171, 171, 172, 172

PT 80 just completed. I went to my Uni to take it in a classroom, but I forgot that they have classes in most rooms on Saturdays during the summer so I took it in the library. Apparently over the summer its full of old crazy rednecks who complain loudly about how our country doesn't follow biblical principles anymore and who don't know how to use computers. Needless to say I was pretty distracted.

LR1 -2 RC -1 Exp LR -3 LG -6 LR2 -3 Raw 89 (-12) Scaled 169

I felt like the first two sections went really well, but shortly after the 2nd section started all the yahoos came in and made a ruckus. No excuse but I'm pretty sure the actual test will be a bit more peaceful. I personally felt like the last 3 sections went horribly as I never regained my rhythm.

For LG I don't know how you guys found this test easier than 79, not only did I not understand buildings at all but game 3 was one of the hardest games I have ever seen.

On the bright side, I felt like this test was an absolute disaster but I still ended up scoring within my goal range (albeit on the very bottom end). If I were to get a 169 for real I'm really unsure if I would retake, it seems like that score with my GPA still gets decent schollys at Duke/Cornell/Vandy. But that's a decision I have a few weeks to decide upon.

Game plan is to review after dinner tonight and then do a game section + 7sage review videos tomorrow. I'll be back later with my pre test playlist :D

I will say that when I took this in February they told us they didn't care about this rule. But probably depends on the proctors.

Just finished 80 too. Yeah that third game was a major time sink and I had only five minutes for buildings, on which I dropped three. IDK why the curve was 10/11 for this test maybe because easy RC? I missed #5 (magpies) on LR1. Damn it. I haven't had 175+ in two weeks and was really looking forwsrd to beating my pt average on this test.

PT 80

LR1: -1
RC: -2
LG: -4
LR2: -2

171.

I would be satisfied with this score on test day but I'm a bit disappointed as it stands today because I wanted a boost going into Monday and this certainly isn't it.

That RC was ridiculously easy, and for sure why the curve was -11 despite hard games. I'm kind of mad I missed one, passages were simple plus I had previous knowledge of 3/4 of the passages. Hopefully Monday is a bit more balanced.

I really don't think so. The trend has been towards having one or both of hard LG/RC with average LR. I don't think they could possibly justify a -10 if this holds. I'm feeling -12 on Monday.

Hope so bc I'm averaging 8/9 misses on late 70s tests. That's what, 173 on a -12?

Just took PT 80

Scored a 168

LR1= 5
RC= 4
LG=1
LR 2= 4

That 3rd LG game took me a whIle to solve and made me rush in the last game. Couldn't answer last two questions well


I am going to review the test tonight and hopefully I sure 170+ in Monday. I'm on my way to a flea market right now and grab lunch.

PT 77 today

173
RC -3
LR1 -3 (stupid mistakes)
LG -2 (short on time and failed to make deductions up front on game 4)
LR2 -0

Really thorough review, writing explanations, and visualizing RC (thanks guys!) instead of just testing over the past few days helped a ton. I'll be damned if I actually make my 174 goal for test day. Lots more reviewing tonight and nailing down concepts. Not sure whether I should take a test tomorrow or not.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see a "harder" test with a -12 or -13 point curve. Last couple tests (barring February, of course), have been -10/-11 curves.

For some reason I feel like RC is going to be insane. Like pin factory insane. LG will be three easy games and one weirdo. LR will be standard.

Took a PT today, really wasn't feeling it.
LR1: -3 after changing a correct ac to a wrong ac
RC: -3 because I feel like they were kinda BS questions/answer choices
LG: -0
LR2: -6 lol I was just ready to get it over with.
Score is a 170, 179 on BR. Realistically should've been like a 173, and I'll enjoy my last day being able to make excuses and saying what it "should've been." I feel ok about monday, I'm guessing I'll be between 172-174, was really hoping for 175+ but that shit is hard.

Pretty sure I went -0 on the entire RC section, so that's okay with me :D
