Studying for the LSAT / Re: so discouraged and need some advice
« on: January 19, 2011, 04:33:15 PM »
Did you analyze the preptest to see what you are doing wrong??

I had a similar situation but I have not study for so long and I'm not taking the test anytime soon.

I took my first diagnostic in my finals week and scored a tragic 146 but I did not answer 10 questions and I had the language barrier.

I took a second preptest about two weeks later and  I scored 153 , thats a 7 point jump with almost no studying but choosing the right material.

Studying with stress is not going to take you anywhere , postpone , relax and start all over again.

Don't time yourself yet ,concentrate on understanding the technique in how to solve each type of questions after you understand them , practice .

After you finish a test, check why the answer were wrongs .  The lsat is about acquiring skills , not about learning a material it will take a lot of time before you see the results.

Thanks for the answer , since I have such a long time to prep. I was really concern on  making sure I don't run out of material.

Even if I have around 45 preptest.

I will do a new one and if I run out ,theres still a couple of new test I don't have and by that time I could reuse the others. I doubt I can remember the questions for 45 tests.

I want to do it again to 1) answer the whole test and be focus on it , 2) be able to know what are my worst parts.

I don't feel like the first one was a correct assessment, plus I need to know what I'm doing wrong in order to fix it.

So I started a diagnostic test last month. I could have not chosen the worst moment possible. 

It was studying for some big school projects,when I decided to do it. This was a horrible idea.

I  did the test while I was doing other things and stopped doing it way to many times. I did not answer about 9 to 10 questions, because I was not really taking it serious and my head was elsewhere.

I threw the exam away right after , and then I realize that I should have keep it to see what were my worst part.

My score was around 145 or 146 , I'm not sure since I was tired and like I said I threw it away without reviewing it.

I don't want to waste another prep test , my questions is should I do the same preptest again ?

Because I would like to know if what I have been learning has been of any use and what are my weakness .

I have a long time to study and I don't want to waste prep material.
