Studying for the LSAT / Re: June test vs. Sept test
« on: June 30, 2007, 04:13:17 PM »
I guess that would mean the Sept test will be even more brutal since most people will have the entire summer to prep.

No. They do the scale before hand according to powerscore. They assign difficulty to each question like super prep does.  So i guess the easier the test is the harder the scale.

I took Powerscore. My score went up 12 pts from first diagnostic to test day. The course is not exactly like the bibles. I had the bibles first, and I might have been able to do it myself in LR, but not games. The LG Bible does not have enough examples.
Honestly, I needed someone to walk me through it and then pound it into my head--that's what you get from a course.

Plus, you get soo much more material than is in the bibles. The design is the same, but you get more--and you get people to interact with and help you analyze your mistakes.

I hear testmasters is just as good...but do take a class!


I have looked at the 3 major test books. Kaplan, Powerscore and testmasters. They all seem the same to me. The methods. The bibles seem the most detailed.

So i guess it depends on the teacher.


I have the kaplan explantions for their test online. The same methods as powerscore. I think people think Kaplan stinks because the books they sell at bookstores stink. Like Kaplan180 and their workbooks.  Fake questions.

hey so if we want to take the June test before september (for the purposes of practice) is there a way to do that? is it "against the rules" for someone to send a copy of the test to a friend?

i wish they would just publish it so i can buy it, then there wouldn't be any issues. anyway, whats everyone's thoughts?

Just download the powescore bibles online. The course is the EXACT same as the bibles.

If you like it take them. If not take testmasters.

There is no such thing as RC tutors. You just have to focus.


The sections  you can get help on are diagramming for LR problems and logic games.


Maybe taking a speed reading course.

Every poster could not be getting a 178, 172, 175.

You are telling me the 1 percent of people who get these scores all post on LSD?



Some may be lying, but it's also self-selection.  The high scorers are more likely to report their scores.

And people who obssess about the LSAT are more likely to 1) prep hard and 2) post here.


I doubt it. I have talked to three people on aim. They all admitted not scoring any where close to what they have posted.  I think the majority of people are in their boat.


I am not sure what their motive is. I think ego. Maybe they got a 162 and they are happy. But they know a 162 on here would look like a 152. So they pump up their score to have LSD cred.


Well, we have to take your word for this.  However, it seems easier to simply not post your score if you're embarrassed by it.  


They are not embrrassed. A 160 is a good score. They are proud. And they want some props. But you can say i got a 160! On LSD people will say sorry.

But i am sure some are not lying like the guy who posted above.


So they're proud of their 160, so they're going to claim 170 to get proportional props?  Doesn't add up.  I think it's more likely they just stay quietly proud, and don't post their score.  Which is why we haven't seen many 160's. (Though we did see one.)


LOL. They are lying. One guy did a prank last september on LSD. He emailed everyone their score. I think he emailed a 159 for everyone. Then everyone came on LSD and claimed they got different scores. Most in the 170s.

And they all found out it was a prank.

172!  A bit below average, but I'll take it.


Why would you retake the LSAT if you are going to Chicago?
