I have to chime in here!! If you go to law school you will find yourself answering all the questions and barely understanding why no one else understands the answers! Been there done that lends itself here and for $120.000.00 and serious job competition scratching itches is all about whether or not you can reach the itch and actually scratch it as opposed to finding a career and enhancing the skills. Good luck.. save your money or invest in real estate! However, having said that, nobody could have told me not to do law school. I did it and couldnt continue too many other issues , money, age, interest!The interest waned once I got there. Who is going to be your partner to study with? Thats the very first problem!

I was told somewhere regarding the LR section..."First and foremost always identify the Premises and conclusion for every LR question". Plus keeping myself at 1 minute per question. If you're not sure what the premise is or the conclusions are read up on those subjects in the LR bible. maybe it might save you a year of anquish!

Now that we know for sure that some people get higher scores for their ability to accept certain hypotheticals, and others continue to fight the obvious, should we just accept our mediocrity? My answer to that is nothing is certain until someone has proven it to be a fact!In the meantime, there must be a solution to my stubborn cognitive skills on a test that most score a 155 at least!This board is for that purpose, if you have a solution, that would be great, but if the solution is to accept the fact that some have skills and others don't, well for fear of being cruel more than I should, I can't use that information! Thanks though.

Vera, not after review am I picking the wrong answer. I understand why my answer is wrong, and the LSAT answer is correct. It just that during testing situations I consistently continue to pick a wrong answer. Like there are too many rules or too little time to read everything. In Order to get past the 153 mark, something needs to click about the test. Up to this score is about test management. This test is about patterns and obvious answers in a timed situation, and I am not getting there. I can see the answers on many questions but I guess still on many, and incorrectly answer on many others. I am just going to start over again, and slowly go through the tests again, and start over again with the powerscore Bibles, and the nova reading comprehension section. I think thats all i can really do, and hope there is a light that goes off soon.

vera, thanks for the invite, I registered for the yahoo group. I beleive my biggest problem if I can explain it , is that once the timer starts, the middle of the tests section bogs me down, and the answers do not become obvious, consequently time is wasted trying to figure out what was read, and which is the correct answer. Always, I have one of 2 answers, and I most often choose the incorrect one. This has been written about, and I have followed the suggestions, I just can't get over the hump. Rereading the test and analyzing the test I have done, I just haven't yet seen the patterns or the answers! Thanks for listening to this and your suggestions, everyone. It doesn't get much more demoralizing than this test and my results.

Additionally, I have been studying for this feb. test since Oct. I skipped dec.. I have the timer, I had the tests, oh and i took the test the first time last dec. o4. I think when put to a clock and the real thing I panic, or I am excuse riddled. Nevertheless, do I buy more tests, which is too expensive, but manageable? There is something that tells me I am just about there, but yet faraway.Any suggestions?thanks for the help.

When I say I took the exams, I took them! I study the results, I beleive I understand the process, or the reasoning for the correct answer, but, on the real test, FEB.06, I am not cracking the test. The scores on the practice exams are getting higher however, because I know the answers, not in the 160's though. What should I do? As suggested keep buying the tests and keep taking the practice exams, reading the bibles, it seems this problem is more of a timing issue on the real exam than anything else.

Can someone advise on what to do next...I have done all the practice tests, and need all of them again, to study for the june or sept,. test. I know the questions also, so I am not even sure I should be redoing all these tests anyway, but what else am I to do in order to continue to study? Still need to crack the test to get into the 155 -160 range.
