Yikes! None bad, but none great. This was, I think, a classic case of being behind the airplane as I tried to juggle things and kept leaving things out. First, don't do the save-all-energy thing unless I don't have power; if I have it, then fly a normal pattern with flaps at the numbers & on base. Second, get to know RPMs better with & without window, empty & full, etcetc to know when to bump 'em up vs when to pull back a bit. Third, it's really about the stabilized approach at the right airspeed, so make the RPMs work for that.
My last, I think, was finally the nice that they should all have been :-)
