Anyone else find PT 54 & 55 RC especially difficult?

Postby snowoman » Fri Dec 05, 2008 1:51 am

Just took PT 54, and still the RC is really holding me back. -5 on both LR, -2 on LG (these numbers are typical for me) but the -10 on RC brings me all the way down to a 160. I want, I neeeed above a 160 (aiming for 163-165) and I've worked to hard to still be getting so many wrong on RC! :x

With less than 2 days til exam time, not sure if I should keep plugging away or accept that those were especially difficult, relax, and hope for the best. I was hoping this would be my last PT, but now thinking I should practice more tmw, at least on RC if nothing else.

I really recommend you to STOP taking the PT so close to the actual exam. As a two-time taker, I would recommend absolute relaxation from this point onward for your best performance. If you are still worried, look at some RC's few hrs before the test.

I think the RC for 54 was unusually hard (others may well disagree) as that was my absolute worst performance on RC ever (I have taken ALL the diags...all of them), but I don't think Dec. test will be hard on RC. My bet will be on some ridiculous LR questions.

Best of luck.

Man I got exactly the same numbers as you on 54. I'm probably going to do 55 tomorrow, but not sure if I should.

Really? What score are you goin for on Saturday? And what's your average or range?

I also dont know whether I should practice some more RC tmw, apparently others say it's best not to... but I don't know if I can stop myself! :twisted:

And I'm a woman, not a man. Hehe.

I didn't say "man" for it to address you, just sort of like "man I did so bad on this test"....but anyway! I am trying to score high 160's...my scores really fluctuate a lot, from 160-172 so I don't really know what to expect...I usually don't get a crazy burn out anyway, so I probably will do the test and review it tomorrow early morning and take the rest of the day to relax.

I was just joking about the man thing, I understand your phrasing. My scores fluctuate a lot as well, but are in a lower range (159-167) so it makes me feel better to know that you hit the same numbers, in a strange way. I think my plan tomorrow is the same, just studying some RC and maybe LG sections in the morning for a couple hours and chillllllin out the rest of the day.

Good luck!

Can someone explain how #18 (Cakewalk passage, PT 54) is A and not C?

Lines 45 ("remarkable success at popularizing") and 53-54 ("refining the cakewalk" to win over an audience)... Doesn't that support C?
