Studying for the LSAT / how long are the breaks between sections
« on: May 12, 2011, 11:16:19 PM »
How long is the break between the 3rd and 4th sections?  Also, do you get any kind of break between sections?  I have just been turning the page and restarting the timer to simulate real test day conditions.

Is there anyway to determine which one of the sections is not scored?

you should read the powerscore logic reading bible.  After reading that you will be scoring 15-20 everytime.

arc, its always good to hear from both sides of the argument.  Frankly I think that weather you need to speed up/slow down depends on what side of the spectrum your coming from.  I know Ps recomends that you read it in near 3 minutes, with 3:30 being the absolute most and i was taking near 4 minutes.
Also, PS states that only 60% of RC questions are global, for the remaining 40% you should return to the text anyway.  So reading with a global reference mindset makes sensse.  We seem to agree on this topic

Thanks for the tips Mike, i have reread the reading comprehension bible and took a few pages of notes.  I think this bible is probably the least helpful, but i did come away with some new thoughts.
I like the idea of not marking the passage too much also, although i still have to test it out on a few preptests.  I can read the passage in around 2 minutes if i dont mark it up much, and i might even become a more active reader.

sorry,
i meant reading comprehension, not logic reading.

Studying for the LSAT / Help with the Logic reading section (17/27)
« on: April 10, 2011, 03:19:08 PM »
I normally score around 20-22 for the 3 other sections, but for the logic reading section i have to slow down in order to answer the questions correctly and then end up not being able to complete more than 3 of the passages. 
The test i took last is a perfect example: I finished 3 passages and scored a 16/21 and then had to guess on a passage and got just 1/6 for a combined 17/27
I already read the LR powerscore bible and will be rereading it soon, but does anyone have some advice on how they spead up through the LR section?
I have until the June LSAT to study

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Curse you logic games!
« on: March 31, 2011, 10:06:02 PM »
The logic games section is probably the easiest section to improve on.  I read the powerscore bible for it and went from getting 10-12 per section right to getting 18-23 every time.  It's also easy to get nervous when taking the whole test and, as a result, perform much worse than you do in practice by rushing.  If you avoid getting anxious and get more involved in the game you will become much better. 
Some times it can be better to only try 3 games.  I do this commonly in reading comprehension, and every once in a while i dont complete the LG section but still get a good amount of questions right. 
My advice is to slow down for now and get a higher percentage right.

im not familiar with their classes, but their books are great.  Also, that course looks like a good deal at just $400
