    So I do the technique where you tilt your head and pretend the angles to be mountains.

    Like 80% were pointing up so I was dizzy after finishing angles.
    I get to question 60 and I have 12 mins left...
    Then that illusion on cube counting...I stare at for 3 mins... then I guess and move on.
    please tell me that is an error...or does it actually have an answer?

    what is an error? you mean the illusion? if so, it's not an error.
    As you can see from my signature, I struggle with angle ranking, too :)
    I think the best way for me right now is not to spend more than 15 sec on each angle.
    The more I stare at it, the more I get confused, and the less time I will have on PAT.

    I don't think so.

    Hehe, I struggled with that stupid cube illusion thing too on question 70. I got all the questions wrong for that particular figure. After the test, I stared at it for a good ten minutes and now the figure makes sense to me. Also, look at the explanation provided.

    Ok, so I finished staring at it and it IS an error.
    There is an extra line that cuts through a square. That line messed everything up. It made it seem like an illusion.
    I got 1 of 3 correct by guessing...
