That sounds awful. Did they reschedule the exam for your group?

I took it at George Mason and the power went out.  Worst testing conditions ever...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: i hate RC
« on: December 27, 2005, 10:13:21 AM »
Yeah. RC is always the determining factor in my practice test scores. I consistently get one or two wrong in each LR and LG section - up from 4-6 wrong/section a month ago. With enough practice, I think it's possible to ace the LR and LG sections - only a limited number of formulas, you just have to get used to them. RC is just brutal. I get anywhere from 2-10 wrong per RC section! So it's going to be the difference between a 160 and 170 for me. I have found that I do best on RC if I've gotten at least eight hours of sleep and had some exercise in the morning. It's all about focus for me, and if I'm the least bit groggy, I can't concentrate on passages about the role of women in 14th century English law or the mechanisms that allow plant cells to fuse. Those LSAT writers are tricky folks.

Thanks. How early did everyone get there? I have to switch metro lines to get there, so I wouldn't get into Van Ness until 8 a.m. And the ticket says 8:30 a.m. I think it should be fine, but I just wanted to make sure that I won't have to rush to get there in time.

Studying for the LSAT / February LSAT takers applying for fall 2007
« on: December 19, 2005, 11:12:44 AM »
We have less than a month and a half left to study. Not really crunch time, but the holidays sure take away a good chunk of time that could be spent studying. Is anyone else tempted to put it off until June? I'm still leaning toward February, because it will be nice to have it out of the way early. But an extra four months of studying is tempting.

I've been curious about whether the test date makes a difference. If you're standardized against all the other test-takers, then aren't you at a disadvantage taking it in, say, June, when the most competitive students are likely to take it? Would taking it in February be more advantageous?

Studying for the LSAT / Question for former TM students
« on: December 14, 2005, 04:34:01 AM »
How much of the homework did you do? I've been doing about half of the LR and RC problems and all of the logic games. That's about all I've had time for. It starts to get repetitive, because they group similar LR questions together, and they give 70-80 per homework. I'm wondering if you found more value in spending your time doing timed practice tests than doing all of the homework. Thanks.

Yeah. My nightmare is getting two RC sections. Even though one will be experimental, so much tedious reading will likely cause my score to plunge at least a few points. I pray for two LG sections, preferable first and third. That will help break up dense reading.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How's everyones prep for the Feb LSAT going?
« on: December 12, 2005, 10:27:39 AM »
I highly recommend the Logic Games Bible. I got it on Friday and worked through the first few chapters over the weekend. It's already made me much more efficient on games. It's kind of pricey - almost $50 - but well, well worth it.

I just took my diagnostic for my prep class and got a 157  >:( but I totally bombed the games section, I missed 13 so I hope that will improve.  Through the first two sections (rc and lr) I was on pace to get a 170 and then the last two (lr and lg) I missed half of the problems.  I think this might be due to test fatigue, and the fact that I suck a** at games.
