Studying for the LSAT / Re: When can we view Oct 2004 Test?

Oh, I didn't realize you get the questions too.  Sweet.

Studying for the LSAT / When can we view Oct 2004 Test?

The June 2004 test was posted on July 2.  The LSAC didn't release it until late July though...I believe someone from Testmasters or Powerscore posted it. 

Where and how soon can we get a copy of the fun test we just took?

I think Master the LSAT is the best one I've seen for this.  I'm going to buy the LR Bible when it comes out though...

Studying is the last thing I want to do when I'm overseas.  I'd take the powerscore class for the October or Dec test.  There is so much to do over there besides study for the lsat.  Then again, I would rather study for the LSAT in Germany than over here...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: I cried uncle and postponed my test date

I'm probably going to postpone.  If I do end up taking it, I'll always wonder want I could have made if I put it off and studied more.  Besides, I'm not scoring where I need to be right now.  But, I still have a bunch of tests I can do till October...but that school-thing might get in the way... 

Like Keating said, Take melatonin.  I love the stuff.  During the school year I often take it Sunday nights so I can get to sleep at a reasonable sleeping habits get out of whack from the Thurs-Fri-Sat weekly partying. 

It works great though.

If you can study leading up to the test in October, then you should propably postpone it.  It sounds like you don't really have much to lose by postponing it.  But if you do postpone, draw up a study plan of some sorts and stick to it. 

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What type of pencil to use?

Hobby Lobby has a variety of mechanical pencils with different thicknesses of lead.  You could get one that is a little thicker than usual... 

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Hiring a LSAT tutor... any advice...?

I finish my Princeton Review class next tuesday as well.  It was a large waste of money.  The class went at a snail's pace. 

My PR teacher did offer free "office hours" help though.  He met with some people just about every day.  I met with him just once though. 

You should check before or after this Saturday's practice test if your instructor does that. 

I don't think the tutoring helps me any.  I just have to sit down, put the time in, and figure it out on my own.  Oh well.  I've ordered a lot of the preptests to go over and will probably take the LSAT in October.  The only time I improve is when I study the LSAT on my own.  The Princeton Review class time didn't seem to help me except for the group-therapy-type atmosphere.  It was nice knowing a group of people going through the stress of the LSAT.   

If your dead set on getting a tutor you and you think your PR teacher is any good, you could hire him/her. 

Good luck.

I don't know anything about the Evelyn Wood's program.  But, I took a speed reading class at my high school 4 years ago.  It seemed to help RC, etc. but I'm sure it had something to do with having to read every day.  The class was a semester long.  We tested our speed/RC at the beginning of the class.  Then did the "techniques" for the semester taking a quiz (reading passage w/ questions) each week. 

You basically learn how to skim effectively. 

My speed went from 275wpm to a little over 900wpm on the weekly quizzes. 

What was interesting though, is that at the end of the semester the teacher had us take a quiz (reading passage) and we were supposed to read at our normal comfortable pace instead of the hurried-speedreading/skimming.  I read the passage at what seemed to be amazingly slow, but read the passage around 400wpm. 

The class probably couldn't hurt.  But, it's probably better to just do a lot of the old RC sections of the preptests. 

Hope that helps.
