more people take the october test, so the scaling can be more difficult than other administrations. Also, one has to wonder if a few points( especially in the mid to high 170s) higher in october and applying in November wouldn't be disadvantagous to a slightly slowly, albeit great score, right away. Everyone I've talked to has said that applying ASAP is one of the biggest determinants of admissions.
on grouping games, the one pointer I can think of that saves time is during your set up label all the deductions you can make. For example, if you look at the the fourth game on the October 2004 test, if given a clue that says something like Webnesday is bigger than Friday and you lable Webnesday as not being able to be the smallest variable, that already answers one of the questions. often times, those type of simple deductions are questions. Hope this helps.
Where are you thinking of appling?
