I'll read yours if you read mine...send me a message or just post it if you're comfortable with that.
If you can sneak a peek at the ordering of the sections before you begin, you may be able to find the experimental
What about Amstel light? It digests pretty good.
truth be told, i'm not 100% sure if i can make the 6 or 7 point jump i want to make. for what it's worth, though, i'm willing to sacrifice my social life for another two months lolz. anyway. in response to your questions..Given this response, I would definitely suggest taking the December test instead of the October one. If you've been preparing for less than two months, I think the extra two months will allow you to reach your goal. More importantly, if you're already scoring low-170s, those two months will give you a legitimate shot at 180. Make sure to use only Actual, Official LSAT questions...
1) i started studying near the beginning of August (i know, kinda late. i was taking summer classes to boost up my gpa )
2) problematic particular q type: LR must be true qs that involve formal logic, and effing long parallel reasoning qs (grumble)
3) i started doing timed PTs about... two weeks ago? i've only done 6 so far. (i know, i'm lacking in the full-length PT practice area.)
4) improvement is slow, but then again, i is a slow learnerrrr
5) so i definitely don't have a 4.0, but my gpa puts me in the median range. (hence, i need a good lsat score.) and i'm not an Ivy student, either. but my (overpriced private) school is fairly well-regarded, i think. well, i hope.
I usually do not mark the passage, however, and just slowly read through it once (usually takes about 2 mins), then spend the rest of the time on Qs. I have come to realize marking generally slows me down and isn't too helpful, as I can usually keep in mind where cause/effect, author's perspective, and all that jazz is.
