Studying for the LSAT / DC-area testing centers

Has anyone taken the test at Georgetown or Northern Virginia Community College? What was your experience? Was there enough room on the desks? Was it noisy? I'm trying to decide between the two sites, and from what I've been reading about the december tests, the location really can make a difference. Thanks!

Which one is more difficult, Feb or June? I heard curve of June test is very high. Does anyone have input?

I don't think it matters. LSAC has so many statisticians and other very smart people who adjust the curve so that if a test is more difficult, the scoring is easier.

Benadryl will slow you down on the test the next morning (trust me, I still have the lousy calculus grade to prove it).

If you really can't go to sleep, take a little valerian. It's an herb that's available in most nutritional stores. It helps get you to sleep within a half hour, and you don't feel groggy when you wake up.

Anyone else getting an early start on applications for Fall 07 and preparing for the February LSAT? If so, what are you doing to prepare at this point?

Does TM include a fifth section in its proctored exams?

Is that the real testmasters or the fake one?  Testmasters180 only offers courses in Arlington and Charlottesville for Virginia. 

I'm sure that it's the real Testmasters. Testmasters may only offer Virginia classes in Arlington and Charlottesville. But DC isn't in Virginia, so that's probaly why it doesn't show up when you do your search.

There's a TM class for the February exam in DC that starts in the beginning of December and runs through January. It's spread out a bit more. It's not in Arlington, but it's on the metro line.

That's good to know, because my diagnostic is 13 points below your LSAT.  I'm taking the February one though, and there's no options for winter, so it's crammed into the end of December and January.  Oh well, I'll start studying beforehand and January will be like the bootcamp of LSAT training, lol.

I agree with what Typhoon wrote. The book isn't something that can be easily summarized - it gives you a new way to think about the logic games. Obviously, it won't guarantee perfect scores on the games sections. Some people just don't get the games, no matter how hard they try. But I found it more intuitive than the LGB. I no longer waste time looking for every deduction I can think of. One caveat with this book is that you have to be willing to put in the work to absorb all the material. It has a lot of narration throughout the exercises, and you have to read all of it a few times to really understand what the author is doing. Frankly, it's worth the small price. At best, it will help you smooth over the rough spots and bring you closer to a perfect score. At worst, it won't help you and you'll be out $30 or $40. When you think about the cost of law school and the fact that a few extra points can get you a scholarship, it's a pretty small cost.
