i am happy and thankful that i am good at one section of the lsat but at the same time, i am kinda pissed off that its wasted on the lowest scored section. i missed 2 questions on my first diagnostic lsat on the games section. ever since then, i have not missed a single games question and usually have about 5-10 minutes to spare after double checking my work.  i know or at least i would like to believe that this is at least some what of an indicator that i am not a total idiot.

but i can't master RC for the life of me. i miss 12-14 every single test. i was thinking of just skipping the last passage and blind guess it and just spend all 35 mins on the 3 passages w/ the most questions. has anyone tried this and achieved good results? and LR, that is a total flip flop for me. sometimes i miss 4-5 a section (which i consider great) and sometimes i miss 10-12... which happened to be on both sections in the september lsat... i just bought the Logical Reasoning Bible and it should be coming in the mail tomorrow so i am going to start on that but anyone know of any good techniques for RC?

and i am one of those "Logic Games"-minded people if you know what i am talking about and for those of you who are kinda like me... how did you attack the RC? is there any way to kind of formulate the test into the same method you use for LG? thats just of an odd question but i am curious if anybody knows the answer.

Studying for the LSAT / 6 weeks until retake! don't get down
« on: October 20, 2007, 09:31:46 PM »
I was very disappointed in my score but very relieved also. These past 3 weeks have been hell. And I am glad I finally got my score. I did way worse than I thought I did. I thought I at least broke 160... I was averaging a consistent 160-162. I got a 154. But I am not going to let that bring my down. The way I see it, I am lucky enough to have 6 weeks to retake it. Those people taking it for the first time in December are not so lucky.

Whats very disappointing is I haven't scored below a 159 in like the past 15 prep tests. I guess I am going to take all these prep tests score with a grain of salt because although they are good for confidence and all, it is really nothing like test day. And another thing I am kinda relieved about is I wasn't in a borderline situation where the decision to retake or not would have killed me. Now I know that I must simply retake. Whenever my friends asked me what I got, I just told them I did horrible and that I will tell them my score once I get my new score in December after having improved. I've hit rock bottom in my abilities so the only way is up. Good luck to everyone else retaking it or taking it for the first time in December. I am going into my own self-inflicted LSAT boot camp. Quitting my job Monday and giving up my PS2 and the hardest thing of, alcohol, until December 1st. And I will giving up these LSAT forums and all too. Bye!

Studying for the LSAT / what experimental section would you like to have?
« on: September 23, 2007, 03:14:59 PM »
I know a lot of people say its never good to go into a test dreaming about your ideal experimental section, but I am curious as to what everyone else thinks?

I personally love the Logic Games section. I usually finish it with a few minutes to spare and never miss any. I hate the Reading Comp section more than anything I've hated in this world. So I am praying to whatever God is up there to spare me a Reading Comp experimental (or even a LR exp b/c that would mean 3 LR sections- Geez!).
