After you do preptests analyze all of your mistakes. It is very important.

Studying for the LSAT / Twittermania comes to teach you some LSAT!

Seems like this thread is floating around other LSAT forums so this one should have it too!  :P

Twittermania comes to teach you some LSAT!

I think that might be interesting for those looking for occasional LSAT tips and advices. There are lots of LSAT twitter accounts set up by many prep companies and prep forums. However, only few of them really deserve your attention. Want to jump ahead and say that the major companies - Kaplan and Princeton Review mostly advertise their products. This is my list of top 5 Twitters to follow:

1) LSATWorld - Post great tips every day. Also they regularly post jokes about LSAT and lawyers which makes your LSAT study more fun.

2) LSAT Blog - Lots of articles and useful advices. Updated every day. Not only that author gives advices he also posts interesting stories connected to LSAT.

3) Blueprint LSAT blog - tips, advices. Try to talk with many followers personally.

4) LSAT Freedom - does not update as often as previous twitters but usually provides interesting tips and advices.

5) PowerScore - fine twitter from one of the best prep companies. Useful advices, tips, reminders.

I think that anyone who uses twitter and wants to do better on his/her LSAT should follow at least the first three companies.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Conditional Statements --Help me out!

Mary will go to the Shop or watch a movie --- M ->S or W;
Mary will either go to the shop or watch a movie --- M->S or W
Mary will either go to the shop else she will watch a movie --- if Sm(mary shops) -> no Wm (Mary movie), if Mm -> no Sm
Mary will go to the shop but she will not watch a movie --- Sm; no Wm
Mary will go to the shop and she will watch a movie --- Sm and Wm

If Mary will watch a movie, she will not go to the shop --- if Wm -> no Sm; if Sm -> no Wm
If Mary does not watch a movie, she will go to the shop --- if no Wm -> Sm; if no Sm -> Wm

Could you help translate these sentences into "or", "and" or conditional statements
> M = Mary, S = Shop, W = Watch movie


Not sure about the third one but others should be correct:)

One man ones said: "We all WANT to be the best, but only few are ready to sacrifice to BE the best".

Unfortunately, LSAC does not care about your job, girlfriend and family problems. When I was getting ready for my first LSAT I had to drive about 2-3 hours a day and I really wished that there was something like an audio LSAT to practice it in a car. If you want to jump from 143 to 160+ you need at least 4 hours a day. And these hours should be spent wisely. Practice tests and go over your wrong answers. Read some guides. More importantly remember that arguments are 50% of your score so in any talk you have with your friends, or in any statement by a politician look for flaws and assumptions. These makes preparation more fun and allows you to prepare while you are busy doing other stuff.

First of all, what did you receive on your most recent practice tests?

To concentrate I heard that some people start by reading the test aloud. What they do is they start reading and "doing" the test aloud, which gives them nothing else to concentrate on, and by the end of the section your mind gets tired of reading it aloud and almost automatically you stop reading the test aloud while maintaining the concentration and making less mistakes. After just a few tests your concentration should be better.

Never tried it, but heard that really helps:)
