Studying for the LSAT / Hello everybody! Tell me what I'm doing wrong.
« on: August 08, 2008, 06:35:49 PM »
Hi everyone, as you can tell I'm just another pissant n00b. I've been lurking for the past couple days when a friend of mine informed me of this site. What a great resource! Thank you all; I don't think any of you realize how much help your advice gives to peons like me.

Now, I've only read through the Powerscore Bibles (LG and LR) within the past couple months and have taken six PTs so far. It's extremely frustrating because I seem to hit around 165 and have not improved. Tomorrow (8.9.2008) I'll begin taking the Powerscore (full-length) classes, although I'm worried that perhaps I've started too late. On top of this, I work a demanding full time job as well, so I only manage to study 2-3 hours (1 PT) maybe two or three times a week.

I've really lost a lot of hope since I've yet to improve my score. I'm keeping a log of the LR (my weakest area by far) questions that I've missed. It seems like I have the most trouble with Must be True and Flaw questions. LG and RC I can handle with two or three questions missed per section, but LR just murders me. I'd keep plowing through more PTs, but I think I'll only manage to familiarize myself with the questions without actually improving upon them.

I'm looking for some study guidance as well as just a reality check. Am I being pessimistic in my outlook or just realistic? Of course, my goal is to obtain a 170+, but that goal feels utterly impossible now. Would it be wiser to give up before I invest even more time and money into this endeavor? What do you guys think? Thanks again!
