There's a lot of buzz on this topic over on TLS...  ;)

For me?

Logical Reasoning #1: 7
Logical Reasoning #2: 5
Reading Comprehension: 3
Logical Games: 3

My strengths lie in the games section, and I was able to finish with about five minute left.  Reading Comprehension usually gives me the most problems, but I didn't get hung up on the first passage (which usually happens).  As for my first Logical Reasoning section, I don't think it was difficult as much as it was my first section of the test.  I'm not accustomed to doing PrepTests that early in the morning, so it took a while for me to get started.  That, and I was SUPER nervous!  I had to rush through my last couple of questions, and I actually ended up leaving one blank.

Even though we have yet to receive our scores, I'm proud of my performance.  Aside from the nerves early on, I felt prepared and was about to get into a grove about midway through my second section.

I share a lot of the same sentiments as the above poster.  I finished the games blazingly fast... hopefully not too fast where I made stupid mistakes.  For LR, I never remember there being questions where I got really hung up on and had to either skip or guess... but who knows, I could have been overconfident when choosing answers.  Reading comp was the very final section for my test, and by then I may have hit the wall... but limped across the finish line anyway.

I feel good, but also have an uneasy feeling that I was overconfident, so I am keeping fair expectations.

If I had to rank, for me:

games - 3,  lr - 5, reading - 8

but, i almost always crush the games, and reading is a hit or miss area for me that really depends on luck.
