First and foremost it is what works best for you. I originally did Kaplan and had a tutor for a limited amount of time. And did this from sept. to dec...got the 149 on dec. 22(?) studied on my own for a month at a very laxed pace and then got that fantastic 161 in feb....what is crucial in understanding this puzzle is that i had gotten accepted to cooley before i took the second test...meaning that the pressure was off...I am almost certain this is why i did well, but keep in mind that i had already studied for 4 months and had gotten to the point where i did not really need to study strategies that much anymore. I'd say during the month of February i was just 'keeping fresh' by doing a section every other day.
OH yea, i almost forgot...i put a STRONG emphasis on reading material that was COMPLETELY UNRELATED TO THE LSATS and LAW...while you may say 'big deal', i think it helps you stay on point and also helps your ability to 'whip' through ALL sections of the LSAT...be a VORACIOUS reader, it helps...Fiction, Non-fiction, Science, anything you like, just keep the pages turning...but again, know thy self...what works for me may not work for you...my main problem was time, NOT figuring out problems, so my style may not fit yours. Hope this helps
