I'm not sure if it'll help you with your reading comp, but I'll share the advice that I give my middle schoolers.  When you are reading the passage, imagine that some very attractive person that you would like to spend some time with is really, really interested in whatever you are reading.  You're going to see them later tonight at a party, and you need to pick one thing out of each paragraph and jot it down so you can discuss it later.  That technique has improved their standarized test performance quite a bit, but they were pretty low to start with.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What should I do to prepare?

I live in Louisiana and either Baton Rouge or New Orleans would be within commuting distance from my house.  I was looking at LSU or Southern because I can afford the tuition.  There is no way that I can pay Tulane's tuition, and I don't want to get out of law school $100,000+ in debt.  Thanks for your suggestion.  I will definately pick up that book and work it.

Studying for the LSAT / What should I do to prepare?
« on: September 12, 2009, 04:08:11 PM »
I'm currently teaching middle school mathematics, which as it turns out, is not the job for me.  I decided to take the LSAT in December and apply to Law School in January before the 2010 deadline.
I took the June 2007 practice test.  Under timed conditions, my scores were as follows: Section I - 15 correct.  (I ran out of time, so I actually worked 16 and of those I got 14 correct.  I guessed on 7 and I got 1 of those correct.)  Section II - 18 correct.  (I did a better job pacing myself and I answered 23 questions with 16 correct and guessed on 2 and got 1 correct.)  Section III - I finished all the questions and answered 23/25 correctly.  Section IV - I finished all the questions and answered 22/27 correct.  My raw score, 78, converted to a 160.
Questions 1: 
What books should I buy/study to prepare for the LSAT?
Question 2:
I'm planning to apply to LSU law school in Baton Rouge Louisiana and Southern Law School, also in Baton Rouge.  I have a BGS with a minor in Mathematics and a Minor in Humanities from Nicholls State University.  My undergrad GPA is about 3.3.  What LSAT score will I likely need to get into either of those schools?
