i thought it was really demanding but it really helped by just reviewing all the concepts and i got a lot of little tips.

I just took a full-length test and I got a 22/23 on the games. It has somehow become my easiest section.  ???

I have no idea what happened. I used to ace all my other sections and do horribly on the games. Now I get near perfect on the games, but consistently miss 6-7 on every other section.

I ended up getting a 163 right now, which is my best score ever. It's a shame I had to get a 22/23 on the games to achieve this score though.  >:(

Games just randomly "clicked" with me last Friday. I was consistently getting 12-14/23 on every games section and last Friday, I got an 18/23 and after this weekend's Testmaster course, I am confident I can get 20 +.

I don't really know why. I guess they just seem easy to me now.  I think it's pretty much all the setup and the rules. Also, I learned some helpful tips that I wasn't really aware of before like the:

A <---|---> B

"active reading" is the key for rc (asking yourself why the author is telling you a certain thing, where a new fact may lead, why is the topic at hand important to you, how does it affect you,) and if you read slowly gaily i think that will be of more help than harm, but then that's just me.....i had to learn to slow down

Yeah, I've taken a Kaplan class and have a Powerscore tutor and have heard every single piece of advice regarding how to improve RC and to an extent I think it's a skill that you either have or you don't.

My reading speed is fine. It's the figuring out what the question's asking, finding the right piece of the passage, figuring out what the author means in that spot, then figuring out what the answer choices mean and how they stack up to what the passage is saying that takes so damn long for me.

Hey, I think you might be over-analyzing problems sometimes. I kind of have your problem and what really helps me is if I go into the questions really confident and like totally sure of everything I answer. Don't stress too much about it - just put the answer and move on.

That's just how I approach it...

No, it doesn't.

The only thing that helps me is going over the problems I did wrong with the tests that have explanations on each answer. I often mistake something in a diagram or don't think of a possible deduction and that's usually what gets me. I just keep going over what I did wrong and try improving that way.

That, and I've pretty much accepted games as my weak point and try to just nail as many as I can.

This is how I'm trying to look at it:

Most of the work is preparing for the test. If I put in the time and effort now, I will have done the best I could.

On the test, I plan to come in fresh and just do the best I can.

Also, I'm happy with where I am scoring right now on my avgs. I am getting anywhere in between 157-162 and that is exactly the score I need for my top choice. So barring a disaster, I should be fine right??

Plus, I will be so happy once this whole process is done in 3 weeks.  :)
