Hello everyone,
I'm here in hopes of getting some advice.  I took the lsat for the first time at the beginning of this month and received my score a couple of days ago.
I have a 2.72 GPA and I scored 143 on the LSAT. I really didn't study at all, I really wish I did.  It was just really difficult to find the time with my busy work schedule.

I plan on retaking the LSAT again in October.  What are some tips and pointers to improve my LSAT score? I'm aiming for 160 to improve my chances of getting into more law schools.  As of right now, my chances of being admitted to law school is very slim.

I've been reading around and this is what I plan on doing, I'm not sure if this is good enough. I can't afford to take classes therefore I plan on studying on my own.  I've managed to get actual tests from previous years and also preptests from lsac. I plan on spending around an hour each day working on one section of a test and then review my answers and focus on the answers I got wrong.  On the weekend, I would try to take the entire test. I plan on doing this from beginning of July up until the end of September, right before my LSAT on October 1, 2011.

Will this method be enough to improve my score up to 160's? Even if it's low 160's I would still be very happy.  I have read that the powerscore logical bible helps a lot. I have a copy of the book and I plan on reading it.  What are your feedbacks and opinions about the book and how helpful it is? I would like to focus on techniques that will help me most at improving my score.

Thanks for reading, hope you guys can help me out with advice, opinions.
