You surely need to see if you are familiar with the patterns tested and basic concepts.

I guess brushing up the basics before attempting to do practice tests helps retain confidence.

yeah, more details would be good here:

* what is the difficulty level of the problems you're having trouble with? the 60% statistic you've given offers little insight without that information. more specifically, 60% on low-level cr and rc problems is a performance that needs improvement, but, if you're getting 60% of problems correct at the 700+ level, you're in good shape, to say the very least.

* which tests have you taken? are they adaptive? are they from a company that offers analysis of the results?

* do you have weaknesses on any particular problem types? especially in critical reasoning, where there are clear distinctions among different problem types (find the assumption, weaken / strengthen, etc.). much of the advice that can be given is restricted to particular problem types, so we need to know where you're having difficulty.

Can you share with us more information on your prep? Are you having problems with any specific types of problems? What material have you reviewed?

This forum would be glad to help you.
