I am in law school now...there were nights were I was so stressed or my mind would not stop thinking...then a friend suggested hypnosis CDs. They are not the circus act kind of CDs!  ::) They focus on getting you relaxed and they have ones that talk about exam anxiety. I purchased some from amazon and also from ebay. Some are better than others.

I use them on a regular basis, I listen to them and follow the breathing and relaxation exercises and before the CD is over, I am asleep.

When I took the LSAT, I took some Tylonol PM the night before the test. That helped too, but make sure that you try it at least one time before test night. I know somebody who had an adverse reaction to the Tylonol PM and felt very groggy the next day.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How does my plan sound?

Overall, your plan sounds good, but keep in mind that one of the important factors is that you review your tests in detail after you have taken them. Just taking more and more tests is not going to increase your score in the most effective manner.

You need to take time to review each LR question, each game and each RC section. I always recommend that you just circle the question number you got wrong and to work the test a second time, just focusing on the ones that you got wrong...this time try to answer them correctly.

Once you have done that, you need to review to see if you got the answer correct. You need to be able to articulate why the correct answer was the correct one and why the incorrect answer that you chose initially was incorrect.

Doing this will help you improve your score. Taking more and more tests without taking time for reviewing the tests in a detailed manner is not going to help you as much.

Best of luck to you,

Vera :)

It looks like you will end up in the mid 150's. If you know that you can do better and you have time (check with the schools that you are intending to apply to) to take the test in December, then you should cancel your score.

Best of luck... Vera :)

You have forwarded or responded to this message.      

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You are being watched you know. Giving people fake advice.

You get a life you freak. Posting a 1000 times on the LSAT when you are 40 years old.

I reported you to the moderator of this board. I consider your messages harassment. You need to STOP.

JoeGibbsRedskins - I have been busy with law school and working...I have not been on here in a week until somebody emailed me about your comments about me, that are absolutely uncalled for.

For the record, you were kicked out of the yahoo study group because you were calling another girl on the group names, such at B**ch and other choice words that were uncalled for.

That was unacceptable behavior and as the moderator of the group I kicked you out.

I will be reporting you to the owner/moderator of this group. By the way...I think that he attends the same law school as me. So feel free to slam him too.

Another recommendation: Get a Life!

Yes - you need to focus on all three sections consistently. I recommend that if you are weak in games (for example) that you add a game section as an experimental section. But make sure to practice similar to the way the test is, 2LR, 1RC, 1AR, plus one section of your "weakness".

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Get Prepped v Kaplan Teaching
« on: August 25, 2006, 12:08:40 AM »
Personally, I would not teach for a company unless I was at least familiar with their materials and way of teaching. For example, if you personally took Testmasters and responded well to their techniques, you cannot teach TM's techniques even if you do not agree with "your company's" technique.

Also, if you self prepped, then you probably used a combination of techniques...picked the best of what is out there in terms of strategies...if you teach for a particular test company, again, you can only teach THEIR method.

Just a thought or two... Vera :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: so frustrating
« on: August 25, 2006, 12:04:40 AM »
The main thing that you need to examine is if you understand LR? Did you study anything to prep yourself? Like the Powerscore LR Bible? Are you analyzing your mistakes? Are you marking your incorrect answers (without marking the correct answer choice) and attempting to come up with the right answer the second time around? Can you reason out to yourself, why your answer choice is incorrect and the other one is correct?

That means that you really have the ability to score higher...just review and review.

The reason that you should do timed tests is that you don't want to lose your pacing. Just imagine not being able to finish a section because that would plummet your score downward. Taking older timed tests are for keeping your pacing up to par.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: for those that have taken the LSAT before
« on: August 19, 2006, 11:38:55 PM »
The week prior to the test, I took two timed tests and reviewed them. I reviewed the games that I had found difficult during my practices.

The day prior, I took off. However, the morning of the test, I did 1/2 of an LR section, 2 reading passages and 2 games in the car in the parking lot...just to get my brain going.
