I will definitely look into the resources you have mentioned, and give the studying a solid chance the next few weeks to observe improvement. I can always back away from the test if I feel like progress hasn't been satisfactory.
I think you are on the right track. It is probably premature for you to make a decision whether or not to retake the LSAT at this point. You won't know how much more you can increase your LSAT preptest scores or how consistant your scores are until you renew your LSAT preparation efforts.
If I were you, I'd dedicate as much time as possible to LSAT prep over the next several weeks. Treat it like a full-time job. Work your ass off for a month or so, then reevaluate. If you still aren't consistently scoring in the 165+ range by that point, you'll have another tough decision to make.
I will say this though... you've got something like 7 weeks until the June LSAT. It seems like you already have a fairly strong grasp of the basics, and you are just having a difficult time getting to that next level. YOU CAN GET THERE in time. If you really focus on your LSAT prep, and spend alot of time between now and the June LSAT not only working on problems but also reviewing & analyzing your LSAT preptest performance
to figure out what your weaknesses are and why you are losing points... if you really take these next 7 weeks seriously then I have little doubt that you will crush it in June.
Proceed over the coming weeks as if you were DEFINITELY taking the June LSAT. If you go into this in a wishy-washy manner then it is much easier to make excuses and convince yourself that it is ok to put off the serious LSAT prep work that you need to do. I'd try switching up your study methods ASAP... I hit a plateau somewhere in the low- to mid-160 range that I wasn't able to break out of until I started working with the powerscore bibles, and I suspect that you might have a similar experience as well. I'd especially recommend the Logic Games Bible
, given your performance on the LG section of your LSAT. If you work through that book and really focus on Logic Games for a couple of weeks, that section should be much more manageable. I went from missing something like 5-8 questions per LG section to consistently missing 0-2 questions after working with the bible for a couple of weeks. I wrote a lengthy post a couple of years ago about how I used the LGB which you can find here
It also seems like you are struggling with timing, at least on LG and RC... How many full, timed LSAT preptests have you taken? If you are the type of person who struggles with timing on the LSAT but is already scoring fairly well, seems to have a solid understanding of the material and answers a high percentage of the questions correctly if they dont run out of time... then you might want to consider spending the last 3 weeks (or so) before the LSAT taking around 6 or 7 full-length, timed preptests per week. If you already have a solid foundation and good understanding of the material, you should really be able to get a much better feel for the rhythm of the LSAT. I honestly cannot explain the sort of zen-like state that I began to feel in the final couple of weeks before the LSAT, but I only got that feeling after a couple of weeks of taking at least 6 or 7 preptests per week for a couple of weeks straight... at some point things just started to click, and click, and click, until I was hitting in the 175+ range on every preptest during the week before my exam.
Let me know how things go and what you decide to do... and if you find my advice to be helpful, I've got a bunch of posts that I'm continuing to release on http://www.lawschooli.com
that might be useful to you.
