I thought the puzzle section was more difficult and the other sections were comparable.  I scored a few points below my practice average 159, but was luckily still admitted to one of the schools I was planning on applying to anyways.... just not the top ones.  Did anyone else have a puzzle question dealing with a binary on/off switch?  I remember freaking out on that question because I hadn't seen that caveat before.

Yeah, that was a strange one.  I couldn't figure out exactly how you'd classify that game, but luckily I it wasn't hard to figure out, just a little hard to conceptualize.  Once I figured out the rules I think I was able to plug-and-chug.

This test. Oct 2005, was the lowest score for my last 10. The RC totally killed me. I must have not been paying much attention because when I went back and looked at the questions I missed, I was really surprised I got them wrong. I also ran out of time (which was a first, I usually finish RC with 2 or 3 mins to spare).

HOwever, I think my crap score had more to do with me than the test.

I found the test to be difficult, too. I scored much lower than my usual.. messed up on the LR sections and even t hough I only got one question wrong each in the RC and the Games, I still ended up with my worst score in some time. It MIGHT have more to do with me than the test itself but still.
