I agree. Definitely ask for your test to be hand scored.

I would recommend a prep course like Princeton Review. If you're not breaking 150 on your own after continued prep, you really should take a course. Or maybe get a tutor.

PR wrote the questions, so no, they're not official questions. The questions in this book are TOUGH, so it's great practice.

The Hyperlearning course is a great course, so I'd still say go for it. TM and PS are great, but Hyperlearning is definitely on par. Intense schedule, but it's good.

Yeah, seriously. Plenty of people blow their first LSAT, but trying to create a second account in a vain and unrealistic attempt to cover that up isn't overly ethical or mature.

Several schools are starting to take your highest score, so I would get the PS bible and retake.

Princeton Review does. I don't know about Kaplan.

LSAT horror stories / Re: Not Again

Some people get test anxiety much more than they do everyday anxiety. But, just because you take meds for it, doesn't mean you'll always have such bad anxiety or that it will limit you in a law career. Part of dealing with anxiety is getting therapy and learning coping skills, so that you either consciously change your reaction to things that make you anxious, or avoid them if that isn't possible. I know someone who took anxiety meds for a while to get through the worst of it, then learned coping skills and gradually tapered off her medicine. I agree that there's a chemical brain component to anxiety, and some people will always need medicine for it, but so what? Some people need to take allergy meds their whole lives. Big deal.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: is it POSSIBLE????????????????????

Entirely possible!

Great advice. When I took the GMAT several years ago, I was relatively new to the area I was living in, and drove out to my testing center in advance. It was very helpful to know exactly how long it took to get there in similar traffic, where it was and what the building looked like. I'd recommend going inside as well to see where in the building the testing room is. It's not always clear, and if you're taking the test at a university, it can be hard to find the room!
