I will stop telling myself a 170 is impossible, even though I have gotten exactly 162 on 5 of the last 6 PTs. Despite that consitency, my idividual sections are all over the place, except for logic games, where I always crap the bed, getting somewhere in the 55% range. Plowing through LGB; hope to post something better here on Saturday.
How many practice tests have you been taking a week?
I had been taking about one a week and then studying with what time I had left. Unfortunately, I work full time and am in my last year of B school, so time is limited. However, I will be taking at least 2 or 3 per for the next few weeks, and one a day for the week leading up to the exam... I am just waiting for LGs to "click." I feel like I have a pretty good understanding, but I am still too slow and have not put it all together yet on the games... in fact I suck at them under timed conditions. a lot.
You sound like you're stuck in a tough spot. My advice to you to help you get through your trouble with games, and the inconsistency in other sections, would be to STOP taking full length practice tests and start doing sectional work. This may be too scary because we're getting so close to test date, but taking PT after PT without really correcting the errors in between is about as productive as banging your head against a wall. I would say, take this next week and do not do a PT, instead alternate days working on RC and LR with LGs every day ... they will click but it takes concentrated effort.
