Really don't understand the sudden drop in scores. It's almost ridiculous.  raw scores went from 90s to 86 87s.

only explanation for a decline or incline, suddenly, is the amount you are guessing or "leaning" correctly or incorrectly...

if you take a a handful of preptests with 5 sections and use your lowest scoring section and preclude your highest scoring section (worst case scenerio) when scoring yourself then you shouldnt be more than a 4-5 point range.

I can't tell you how many times people tell me they scored a 170 on a preptest then go take the actual test and get 155. Sometimes luck is on your side and sometimes its not by why ever leave it up to fate?

^ That.

Ease off the PTs. Give yourself a break. Breath deeply and resume.

More is not necessarily better. I learned this the hard way for my first sitting.

Thales is right.  Take a few days off.
