Studying for the LSAT / Re: Should I Time Myself on First Practice Test
« on: February 06, 2006, 05:17:19 PM »
Thanks for the advice! I did time myself, and ended up with a 148. I'm not beating myself up over it; not too terrible for a first try. I really messed up 2 of the RCs and most of my other mistakes appeared at the end of the sections. I think with timing and practice I can improve.

My course begins in April-- I'm going to keep taking practice tests and now that I'm through with the LG Bible, I'm going to start on the Nova LSAT book.

Thanks again!

Studying for the LSAT / Should I Time Myself on First Practice Test
« on: February 03, 2006, 12:24:47 PM »
I've been reviewing the basics and doing drills-- which I plan to continue doing on weekdays. But I want to start taking practice tests to get into test mode (plan is to test on Saturdays and then grade myself and analyze errors on Sundays).

I'm taking my first practice test this weekend... Should I time the sections or just take it? Thoughts? I'm inclined to time it... after this first one, I would time them all to get a true sense of test conditions. But this being my very first one... not sure how to approach.

Thanks for your advice!

Studying for the LSAT / New to the Forum: June LSAT taker
« on: February 01, 2006, 06:01:17 PM »
Hi! I found this board today and I wanted to introduce myself.

I'm a 2001 college grad from Florida and am currently living in Houston, Texas, where I am a marketing manager for a mid-size company. After much soul searching, research, etc., in trying to determine what to be what I grow up, I abandoned the MBA track and have decided I would like to be a lawyer.

And I'm taking the June LSAT! I just started studying at the beginning of January.

Today, I registered for my LSAT exam AND enrolled in the April PowerScore course (Testmasters can't go by the name "Testmasters" in Texas, but it's the same company.)

I started working through the Kaplan prep book in January, but wasn't really satisfied that it was teaching me anything. I am working on the PowerScore logic games bible and I am so happy with it! As soon as I'm through with the book, I plan to begin taking practice tests. I'm  fairly comfortable with the other sections of the LSAT, as I took a Veritas GMAT course and the principles are much the same; just refreshing the concepts and practicing.

I'm going to buy the Silent Timer, but I read recently that some LSAT proctors don't allow you to use the Timer on test day. What are some good back up timers to bring with me?

Thanks!
