Why is BB#2 ridiculously hard?

Why is the second practice test in the new BB so much harder than the first one? I have the new BB with the 10 practice tests and the 2nd one seems infinitely harder.

Ex. I got a 2010 on the BB#1 but I'm on the course for a <1800 on the BB#2. Any input on this, I'm freaking out.

    Um... do you mean the second edition of the Blue Book is harder than the first edition or do you mean that the second test in the second edition of the Blue Book is harder than the first test in the second edition of the Blue Book?

    Either way, they definitely should not be harder. Maybe you just weren't in the "test mode" or something. I usually score 2200-2350 on those tests, regardless of whether it is test one or test two.

    I have the 2nd edition, i meant the second practice test is harder than the first. I don't know, the critical reading + math sections seems significantly harder, I'll just have to wait until i take test #3 to determine anything :/

    I actually thought that it was much easier than the first on.
    I got a 2180 on the first one and a 2350 on the second one .
    IDK just my two cents
