So Im currently drilling games from high 50s/low 60s numbered PTs and wow do they feel easy compared to the more recent PTs. LSAC must have seen an upward trend in scores and decided games would be a good place to make harder in order to lower the score average. Only reason I can think of for the harder games.

Where in Europe!! I was abroad for a couple months last year so I can send mad recs if you still want/need ideas. If you're not planning on stopping in various parts of Portugal and eating allllll the natas for at least a 4-5 days, you're doing Europe wrong.

Well I have a Eurail pass that will take me pretty much wherever I want to go in Europe and absolutely no plans. Just gonna kinda show up at the train station every day, look at the big board of destinations, and pick one that looks cool. Any recommendations would definitely be welcomed! Send me a PM

Thanks! I have been finishing LG with ~10-12 min left per section going -0 with no real ball-buster of a game, so im banking on that extra time to just sort it out. Ill let you know how it goes tomorrow.


That's pretty much how you should go. Kill on the easy 3 in whatever order they're in so that you have as much time as possible on the hard one.


Ended up -2 in total on PT 72 LG. I swear that that section was my exp before on an actual take (at least the last game). That last game was brutal.. I went into it with ~13 min and I still didnt get to one question which was the last one and only one i got wrong on that game. The other question I got wrong was on Game 2 and just stupid mistake-- I split the game board into all hypos at the beginning and my hypos proved my answer was wrong lol

Also, for those that BR - do you BR on the same day that you took a PT or following day?

Brute force isn't doing it for me and I want that point



Honestly, it's a gut thing for me. If it's a rule that gets combined with others via inference, I draw it out again next to the question so I know what i'm looking to accomplish. I read through the answers, if something is obviously wrong eliminate, pick which one I think is the best option and test it. Somehow via instinct I'm able to pick the right AC within the first two if I can't eliminate any ACs. It's something you develop over time, I forget if it was the trainer or 7sage that said that but it's definitely true. When I started doing LGs I had no idea which one would but as I worked on them I started to go this one sounds right let me check it first and got there.

I guess, but then I felt like their passages and LR were harder than the ones with harder games. You know, how like 75-80 usually had a harder games section but the LR was easier, at least it felt that way to me in comparison.

Depends on how I'm feeling. I can usually BR LG an hour after taking. The rest, I need at least 2 hours before I think I can deal with it... Then again, because I test under RA I've already been going for 5 hours as it is...

I'm wondering if they did this because they normally release their scores a day early and they just wanted wanted their projected score release date to be accurate.


I don't know who you are but I think we should be best friends.
