I just posted a giant load of prep books on Ebay.  Some includes Blue Print, Kaplan, Powerscore, and LSAC materials.  Don't miss it if you're actively looking for some high quality prep materials.

dactylion,

First off, I think you're score is amazing.  I agree with jmb and I really don't think you should submit an addendum explaining your LSAT score.  I ran into a similar situation and consulted with my undergraduate law school counselor and my private consultant, and they both said providing explanation on something that is not really a weakness can come off as "bragging."

How come a person from Delaware has to come to Baltimore to take the test while a person from Baltimore (me) have to go up to University of Delaware to do the same?  That's LSAC for ya.  I wish I could trade my spot with yours.

I probably won't study every single day this week, but maybe every other day to keep myself in shape and mostly work on fine tuning timing rather than accuracy.

i think you misread...im in the same boat as you, i live in Baltimore and will be driving up to Delware for the test. I was amazed at how fast the other centers filled up...i registered back in Feb!

You're right, I did misread.  Let's hope this doesn't happen on Monday.  Yea I registered in February as well and was surprised to see UM and Johns Hopkins all filled up.  Best of luck to you on your test.

I'm certainly not an expert at this, but I am in the same boat. I'm scoring well on preptests, but I still feel pressure to keep working at it up until the 11th hour. Im going to do a preptest/review the answers each day between now and saturday. Saturday I'm going to do a final review and some practice questions, and thats it. Sunday im going to relax, drive to Delaware from Baltimore (only test center left when i registered) and stay there overnight.

IMO, I think you should keep taking tests this week if it will make you feel more confident and prepared, but give yourself at least the day before to relax and decompress. You dont wan to go into the test center on Monday feeling burned out and drained from a test the day before.

good luck!

I think everyone here made some good points.  I have to agree that WSJ or The Economist are considered to be difficult or dense reading.

From my personal experience, reading some regulations or other legal materials (you know those documents that are really dense?) prepared me for the RC.  I work in the financial sector and I keep myself updated with things like memorandums issued by the Fed and other regulatory agencies.  After reading through some of those boring and convoluted documents, RC passages were more enjoyable to read, which ultimately resulted in a better score.

those tests were all non disclosed, so unfortunately the only people with those scales work or have worked at a building in Newton, PA.

the only reports a ND test taker sees are: scaled score, and writing sample.

no item response, no scale, no raw score.

Thanks for the response.  I thought that February test takers don't get everything, but they did get the scale applicable for them.  I guess I'm mistaken.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: 166: To Retake or Not to Retake

I think there is nothing wrong with retaking if your other score does not reflect your true performance.  On the other hand 166 with 4.0 GPA is pretty darn good in my opinion.  That being said, if you're actually planning to retake, I'd finetune your study strategy.  At your current level, I'd say it's an overkill for you to blow through 2-3 PTs a week.  I'd also not waste time reading the Bibles because your PT scores are above 170, which indicates that you know how to tackle the problems.  In addition, if you're only getting 0-2 problems wrong on the RC section, RC Bible won't be so useful for you.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Preptest 52 - Scale - (September 2007)

72 = 158

86 = 167

I'm searching for scales for recent february exams.  Preferably the ones from 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008.

Been taking yr 2000 and above PT. Started 167, and gradually going down. Have no clue why this is happening. I hope I spike back up tho. Any experiences?

If I may contribute from my own experience.  The declining score can be attributed to several factors.  One of the biggest factors would be fatique (being burnt out).  Perhaps you're pushing yourself too hard before the exam.  You might want to take care of yourself and find a balance between adequate level of study and stress relief.

I've also experienced the so called "roller coaster effect."  For June 2008 exam (which I postponned), I was scoring 170-175 and started to drop as I got closer to the exam date.  Heck, my score dropped to 162 two days before the exam.
