Studying for the LSAT / Re: Improving on a 165
« on: May 20, 2011, 10:03:39 AM »
By the way, I scored a 165 on 5/19/08.

I went on to get a 177 on the June 08 exam... so you are in pretty good shape... you just need to drop everything and really focus these lsat couple weeks!

Have you made any strides since last week?

The LGB is great, but are you using it properly?

See: How to use the LGB to improve your AR Score

The Logic Games Bible has an appendix that breaks down each preptest by game type.

If you don't have access to the LGB, I'd highly suggest buying it... but if are looking for a list of a specific game type (eg. basic linear/advanced linear/grouping), you can also try asking for the list by posting your question here: Ask:

I took at least 1 preptest each day leading up to the exam, and reviewed with the bibles. If I needed to work on a particular section, I would drill individual LG games, RC passages, or AR sections.

See: How Can I increase my LSAT score in under 30 days?

No, you don't know which order the sections will be in until you run into them

However, the experimental section will be one of the first 3 sections... the 4th and 5th sections are always scored.

Check out my post here -

I went from 151 to 177. I do not understand why anyone would tell you not to review your first exam. That is awful advice.

Why take the exam if you can't learn from it?  At the beginning stages, you should be much less worried about _how_ you do.... and much more worried about _how much_ you learn from the experience. If you don't review the exam, then you have just crushed your confidence and you have no reasonable idea WHY!

scenariosolver could not be more wrong. Sad that they are selling LSAT prep materials... scary.

Its been a long time since I've been back, good to see that this thread is still getting views. Hope the new class of LSAT candidates finds this as relevant today as it was when I wrote it a few years back. Enjoy!

well, i DID search for the SEARCH function. this is not the first time i am using a forum. i could not find it. will someone guide me to it. will help a lot for the future.

btw. it is raining. not a spec of blue. :)

On the left side of your screen you'll see the headings Pre-Law, Students, & Site. Under Site, click Home. Then you'll see the search function. It would be better if it said 'Search' under the Site heading.


Note to Admins/Andrew Sinclair: Include a search link in the left hand navigation or at the top of every page. People don't know to navigate to the home page in order to search. I guarantee you will increase page views (and theoretically ad revenue) instantly if people have a more intuitive way to use the search function.
