I just finished my slow preptest.  Going at a deliberately slow pace i finished each section in around 55-60 minutes and scored a 169.  This puts the whole test in perspective and i now appreciate how difficult it is to score an 88% on this test, as i did on the 56th preptest.  I also realized how incredibly boring this test really is haha.
ill further review the exam tomorrow

Clearly there are fundamental things you are missing.  Post some questions that have you stumped and your reasoning in picking your answer.

section 1
I got 2 questions wrong in the logic games that were just really sloppy mistakes, not really worth mentioning.
section 2
ive already gone over this in depth
section 3
Q10- i choose B instead of C, thinking that popularity was relative and that similar concerts would be the only base for that popularity
Q15- i thought D was more of a main point than a strengthen, i thought that B would logically follow
Q21- i thought D was wrong, the inro of similar dances was account enough for the revival, i went with C
section 4
Q17-Answer choices C and D were to similar for me to distinguish
Q21- i was not sure if the passage stated that the affects were negative on the minority group.

After reviewing the test a few time i understand most of the mistakes i made

about 3 days after my slow exam i took preptest #13.  I took this test at a speedy but comfortable pase.  I would mark where i was at 35 minutes on each section and then tally my score assuming that i guessed E on every question left unanswered.  I would then continue to finish the section at the same comfortable pace. 
This resulted in 2 scores: a timed score and an untimed score (although the untimed score was still at a hurried pace)
The result was good i got a 164 timed and a 170 untimed.  Im preparing to take Preptest 14 now, hopefully i will score mid 160s again, either way i think i improved from a calmer approach and more "prephasing"

This is great, but still room for improvement.  Try slowing down even more on a test (take two days if you need to) and see if you can nail a 180.  I will try and address your earlier questions later this evening.
