For those who had a score increase

Post by nosleeptillsuccess » Thu Nov 15, 2012 7:34 pm

When you got a score increase.. was it an overnight type thing?

Like did you have a 150 on one exam then 160 or something on the next...

Basically I took 10 PTs and im scoring in 150s and I got a tutor the other day... he helped out a bunch and I'm taking another test tomorrow.. Just wanted to see if anyone out there has had some overnight success

FWIW, my score increases in PTs were pretty much overnight (after some work).

I took Dec 2011 and got a 166 after PTing around that.

I decided to retake in Oct 2012 and didn't really start studying until August because of work. For the first 4-5 weeks, I was still PTing around 167-168 and was really pissed that I wasn't doing any better. I basically went through all the PTs I had taken and made a list of all the question types I was getting wrong. After I realized there were only 3-4 types I consistently got wrong, I spent maybe an hour learning how to do those. Next PT, I got a 174 and never went lower than 170 after that (including test day when I got a 171).

Not a drastic increase, but those 5 points made a huge difference. AND that jump was made in the last couple weeks before the test, so there's definitely still hope if you're taking in December!
