Studying for the LSAT / MY lsat prep log
« on: June 14, 2010, 04:36:04 PM »
Hi,
I have begun slowly studying for the lsat during this, the summer before my junior year of undergraduate school.  Just over a week ago i took a lsat test cold, with no studying and scored a 150.  This place me in the 50th percentile.  Now, about 10 days and 125 pages of the logic reasoning powerscore bible later, i scored a 156!  This places me in the 70th percentile  8)  I was very happy with the logic reasoning section, which i scored 22/24 correct on, and i still have more than half of that book to go.  I cannot wait to read the logic games bible, i scored 12/24 during this section.



I do have a question for some of the members out there; should i start banking on my decision to go to law school and change majors?  For the first 2 years i majored in business administrations, which plugs into accounting.  However, accounting is a very challenging major that could hurt my gpa and not be beneficial to me if i succeed in law.  However, i would be shy to change to a pre-law major, because of all the classes i might lose.  I will have to look into this more (weather i would lose classes).  Either way, i could stay a business administration major, and my gpa would probably thank me, but if i fail in law, i would not have the advantage of security that accounting offers, this field always has many high paying jobs.  Also, if i cant practice law, i know i want to be an accountant.  Soo, your thought  :-\

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Preparing for the LSAT; PowerScore Bibles

Just giving this thread a quick one over and wow, it has wondered a little. 
Jeffort, dont worry im not going to become obsessed with lsat prep, i want to be able to spread it out over a long time though so i will be in good shape without having to cram.  Also, just because i am starting now does not mean i am going to continue throughout the two years, it is very likely that i will wonder in there.  But, thats okay because i have all this time to play with. 
I got the books yesterday and sat down to take the first preptest tonight and scored a 150.  Obviously i have a lot of work to do.  I was blown away by the speed of the test and ended up guessing on almost a dozen questions.  Those logic games are TRICKY and i have no idea runner G is in, hopefully the bibles will help me out there.

Thank you for the tips,
I am going to take an lsat preptest cold when my amazon order arives and then focus on the bibles.  If i get into my goal range can i take the test then?  Or do you have to complete a bachelors first?  It sure would be sweet to get the test out of the way asap, or have the time to take it multiple times 8)

Studying for the LSAT / Preparing for the LSAT; PowerScore Bibles
« on: May 26, 2010, 04:07:57 PM »
I have 2 years to prepare for the lsat. My current plan is to read through all 3 PowerScore bibles once or twice if i have the time. I will also be filling out lsat prep-tests, starting with the older ones from the book "the next 10 lsat prep-tests". I will fill out the tests slowly at first, and then as he test date approaches i will concentrate more on the prep-tests and take a lot of them at the end. However, i am wondering if the PowerScore bibles are worth the time and money ($150) or if i should be buying a different book instead. I don't have the money for a prep-class ($2,000) but i am sure i have the self discipline to study on my own. So, is this the route to take? Has anyone used the PowerScore bibles as their primary source to study for the lsat? What else should i do, or does this plan sound solid?
Thanks
John Levine
