According to their forum, I'm supposed to read the question before the stimulus. Is this solid advice, or is this the mistake that the OP made before getting dropped into a TTT?

Studying for the LSAT / Pre-PowerScore Preparation
« on: April 05, 2010, 05:14:46 PM »
After over two years of not-really studying on my own, I've cracked and decided to just pay $1,300 for the PowerScore class, and take the June LSAT.

I've studied all 3 Power Score Bibles, and worked through real LSAT questions. Despite all this, I still suck. I always run out of time, so I've been practicing untimed, which can take an hour per section (and I STILL miss questions).

The class starts next week. What should I do to get the most out of the class?

I have Talbot's Big Fat Genius book, several practice tests, and the PS Bibles at my disposal. I haven't read BFG, and I'm sort of reluctant to, because I am worried that it may confuse me. I'm also wondering if I should go over the practice tests, because I don't know which ones they use for the diagnostic tests, and I would like accurate results.

June isn't far, so I would like to get started now, but I don't want to screw anything up.

Pre-Law in high school / What's It Really Like After BIGLAW?
« on: December 02, 2009, 09:59:54 PM »
Until recently, I've been really wanting to be a lawyer, because it seems like it seems like something I could do. But upon doing more research, I'm really having doubts. The "best" jobs are at "BIGLAW" firms, where, although the money is good, the jobs themselves seem to be really, really crappy. People say that "BIGLAW" jobs are just starting points, but fail to specify what sort of jobs are out there, how much they pay, and how difficult it is to get one.

Studying for the LSAT / Best GRE Prep Materials/Other Sites

What are the best study materials for the GRE?
Does the "practice only with authentic questions" rule apply to the GRE?
Are there any other websites that have boards dedicated to the GRE? I don't want to make the same mistake that I did with my LSAT preparation; I had wasted lots of money on Cliffs, Princeton Review, Barron's, etc...before I discovered you guys (thanks, EarlCat!), and learned the formula of PS+PT=171.
I've discovered that PS doesn't make a GRE Prep book, but they do offer tutoring and weekend courses (they don't offer full courses). Does this mean that a weekend course, while not helpful for LSAT prep, could help with the GRE?

I've done a little googling, and this is what I've come up with so far:

GRE Practicing to take the General Test, 10th edition (actual GRE tests).

Barron's GRE 2009 (I'm a bit skeptical of this, considering how crappy their LSAT prep is, but people seem to swear by it).

Any others?

« on: May 22, 2009, 12:14:38 PM » have these message boards (filled with helpful, knowledgable people), but you won't always get consistent feedback.

Yes, I find it particularly helpful when people write every "test be hardest"!

You welcome. Me and Julie here for you.
