Title: Post-LSAT Class Advice???
Post by: Ruhling24/7 on September 23, 2011, 04:19:44 PM
Hey everyone, I really really need some help/advice with respect to prepping on my own following the completion of an LSAT class.

I just finished the course and have October and November to prep before the December exam. We had 4 PTs throughout the course. I received the following scores: 142(diagnostic), 150, 149 and 153.LG and RC have been clicking for me lately, so I am not as concerned about these areas. It's the LR that has been crushing my performance. There are times when I get anywhere from -7 to -13 and I feel its the lack of concentration hurting my performance there. I just cannot seem to focus!! Has anyone else had this issue? If so, how have you overcome it??

What would you all suggest/advise for the next two months? Take as many PTs as possible? Should I start out doing sections individually to build up stamina? As you can see, I really need some direction.  how did you go about prepping on your own??

I would really appreciate any input, thank you!

What prep course did you just finish? Yes, PE until you get tired...I'm surprised that you finished so soo. I plan on finishing my prep in November and taking like 30 PE's or so before December

I took a Powerscore class leading up to the October exam for next week. I knew I wouldn't be completely ready after just two months. That is why I'm taking the December 2011 exam.

I will probably take around 20-30 PTs as well. I've just really been struggling with LR. I'm pretty accurate when I do sets of questions based on specific types but struggle once timed. I feel like I get bogged down often and just constantly re-read the stimulus/answer choices.

What course are you taking?

Do what I did.  Lock yourself in a room every day and take a practice test.  Do some timed and some not timed.  Make sure that you review all of your answers to understand why you got something wrong.  You have a lot of time before the test.  You score will improve if you practice.
