Title: Is this a good start?
Post by: hanmail39 on July 27, 2011, 10:49:38 AM
Hi, I'm an LSAT newbie who just recently began seriously studying for this blood-sucking, frustrating test.

For the last several days I took 8 practice tests (really old ones) UNTIMED (or timed but inadvertently went Over-time), and scored around 165-169 range.

I know some ppl say that untimed practice tests don't really mean anything, but I just want to know if I have the potential to break 170 by

drilling 30-40 PTs in a period of two months or more. I'm really serious about this, so please don't curse, hate or ridicule. I would appreciate any solid advice.

Thank you.

Congrats on the great scores! (Untimed/timed is impressive)
Untimed I'm in the 160-165 range.

I think untimed is important because we get to work on our raw understanding of the test.

I guess you could do more recent tests (PT > 40-ish) and compare your scores. In my limited experience, PTs in the 19-28 range are a bit different (harder/easier depending on section) from later PTs.
