Studying for the LSAT / Struggling with Logical Reasoning
« on: May 22, 2011, 09:11:57 PM »
I'm taking the LSAT in ~2 weeks and am trying to squeeze a couple of more points out of the test.  I've taken 11 practice exams so far. I originally was scoring a 158 but am now in the mid-160s range (my last score, and highest, was a 165 on Test #42.  I've read all of the PowerScore Bibles but have not taken any LSAT prep courses.  Ideally, I'd like to get around a 170, if not better. 

My biggest problem child is Logical Reasoning. While I'm only missing up to 4 questions on each section of Reading Comprehension or Logic Games (sometimes I only miss 1, 2, or don't miss any at all), I've consistently missed at least 10 questions between the two Logical Reasoning sections.  Parallel reasoning and assumption questions seem to be my biggest issue. Do you guys have any general tips for the Logical Reasoning sections? Or perhaps some more specific advice for the 2 question types mentioned?

At this point, what would you guys recommend I do? I purchased Kaplan's Logical Reasoning course, but have not completed it because I've not been convinced after completing almost 2/6 sessions (not completing the 2nd yet so I stay within refund range). If anyone has experience completing this course, would you suggest I finish it? Perhaps I would benefit more from a tutor at this point? Or should I continue taking as many practice tests at possible (taking 2 a day for these last two weeks) and try and learn from the explanations?

Any help is hugely appreciated! And if anyone is in the Las Vegas area and wants to tutor, let me know  :D. Thanks guys
