Embargo is lifted! Lets go guys! What do you guys think about the CR sections this time? I got CR experimental which really freaked me out. And overall I think the curve will be easy since the test is hard :-s

    The fictional passage about the mother asking her daughter to write her life story was from the experimental section. I know this because it had 8 sentence completions. The section with the dual passages on nuclear power also had 8 sentence completions. Since there was no other section with dual passages, the fictional mother/daughter had to be experimental and the fictional roommate passage was legit.

    What did you guys get for the problem asking what it meant when the author said that "art is a detour" or something like that? This was the first long passage in the second reading section.

    The art as a detour one had an answer like taking a break from everyday life.

    what did u guys put for the vocab questions about the scientific research community that should stop being _____ and have better communication. I think i put something with edify and reticence. Also for the nuclear wars tone one, was it vehement? and for attitude of passage 2 to passage 1, was it that the energy usage of the more-efficient products was unjustified? and for the one for the woman biographer, it asked for what "manage" or something nearly means when it was talking about the biographer doing something with the black lady's life and ideas. I think i put "execute" but im like 90% sure thats wrong.

    Santa Claus was experimental.

    20minute was about someone egalitarian woman in history, and writing a biography on her.

    What about vocab? I remember recondite, mercurial, reticence, assuage (as a wrong answer).

    I had the Walden one. Both questions were hard. The second one was something like "based on people." The first had "long and boring" (wrong), "appropriately scientific" (wrong), but I don't remember the right answer.

    Okay. The tone for the second paragraph of the pro-nuclear passage, I put vehement as well. More because none of the others made sense than anything else... Caustic, flippant, resigned, and sanguine all seemed implausible.

    For the attitude of Passage two to Passage one I put that the benefits of nuclear energy outweigh any of the concerns.

    For the biographer one, I think I struggled. For "treatment" I said managed, which I'm confident about. But some of the others were tricky.

    I found all the passages to be very easy to read and comprehend , but I thought the answer choices were tricky. I seemed to narrow down to 2 answers easily, but finding the right one between those 2 was hard.
