Studying for the LSAT / Re: Read Question Stem first or after Stimulus?
« on: December 09, 2009, 07:30:22 PM »
I second that method, if you look at the question stem, you'll be able to deduce the type of question they're asking for, so instead of having "the argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that..." or whatever else it may say, you just think, "i'm looking for a flaw." and if you see "which of the following provides more support for the conclusion if true" you just think, "what do i need to link the premises to the conclusion?"

hey, also I'm not sure if you're a morning person, but from what I know, the LSAT is administered in the afternoon for the June tests. For non morning people, this is HUGE. I scored some of my highest scores in the evening, whereas when I wake up, and there's no blood circulating to the head, my focus wasn't as good.

Also, you may want to consider taking ginko biloba and omega 3 for the 3-4 weeks prior to the test. may or may not work, but at the very least i felt the placebo effect.

I actually feel like the 3rd game was the hardest, by far. That fourth game seemed really straightforward, (finished in 6-7 minutes), but that 3rd one took me more than 10 minutes, and i had to make educated guesses for 3-4 of em. It's like the games section from PT 57, in PT 57, the one w/ the dinosaurs was pretty rough, took me a while, whereas the final one took me 5-6 minutes to complete (6 grants awarded to 4 departments).

If I were you, I'd just start reading case books or some academic literature. This way you'll just strengthen your natural ability to read possibly boring material of a higher reading level than your typical novel. IMO, reading comp is the hardest to get better at, because there are fewer strategies, and there is such a big variety of ways to write essays and such. that said, good luck with it

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Has anyone tried this actually on the LSAT?
« on: December 06, 2009, 11:33:17 PM »
yeah, definitely worth the money. I started out doing logic games and finishing 3 games w/o complete precision and at my peak, was finishing practice sections (that i had never been exposed to) in 25 minutes. UNFORUNATELy, i was smoked by the real LSAT's logic game section. But for the most part they give you the general tools, and you'll probably form your own somewhat distinctive strategies on your own to supplement them as well.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What motivates you?

yeah i think anyone who sets a target (a reasonable one too, not too low/high for the individual person) and hits that target should reward themselves handsomely. Obviously the option of going to a good school is a reward in itself, not to mention just the mere accomplishment. and lets face it, you gotta spoil yourselves sometimes
