What should I expect for the Lit test?

<p>I have been taking about 1 test a week from PR trying to improve my score, and my scores have been 690, 700, 730, in that order. What score should I expect from the actual test, and any suggestions for bringing my score up?</p>

<p>I have trouble with the NOT/EXCEPT questions, sometimes tone as well. I have a hard time finding that stuff in the passage.</p>

<p>P.S. Would taking a couple from Barrons help? I hear it's super difficult.</p>


<p>Expect a beatdown. I failed Lit.</p>

<p>Lit is a pretty difficult test for most people since it can be very counter-intuitive. Look over old English and memorize all the rhetorical strategies / names. Read some poems from a couple hundred years ago, and then look up their translations. Read a couple each day. </p>

<p>I'm prolly not the best person to ask since I didn't take lit, but I did plan to take it and did some review. Like every other subject test, practice and practice. Do lots of review tests, as much as you can so that you can get used to the diction. Good luck.</p>

<p>Aquawater, are there specific books with old English that are helpful to review?</p>

<p>I'm also wondering how close PR is to the actual test.</p>

<p>Anyone else?</p>

<p>The PR book is a bit harder than the real Lit test. I got the exact same scores as you did on PR tests and on the real test I got a 760.</p>

<p>Whoah really? That's awesome! I would be SO stoked to get 750+</p>

<p>Does anyone have an opinion about what book I should use next? Kaplan or Barrons? I hear Kaplans is similar to the real thing and Barrons is harder.</p>
