Studying for the LSAT / Re: Junior In College, Ready for LSAT?
« on: June 10, 2011, 09:11:57 PM »
junior as in just completed your second year of undergrad?

not happen unles experimental.

I am guessing that I am misunderstanding you but I only had one RC section.

Of course we are only speaking in hypotheticals since Mr. cvntstscrty isn't clarifying his position of no discussion, but it would really suck to have a very difficult reading passage as the first one. I would think that it would suck up too much time if you weren't watching the clock and then make you rush through the rest of the questions.

I think i was F  :D

So can I ask if anyone else found the first reading comprehension passage particularly challenging, or would that fall under prohibited discussion?

Recommendations / Re: Trying to figure out what LSAT score I need

How about Phoenix Law?  You could always try to transfer after 1L if you get good grades and still want to go to ASU.  Granted, that's a gamble, but worst-case, you can get that Phoenix Law degree and practice.

Do not do this.

I think MikePing is about right. You need to be in the 170s and the higher the better. If you check out lawschoolnumbers.com, there was apparently a non-URM admit with a 168 and a 2.76 GPA. I think that's cutting it pretty close, but that should at least give you a general idea of how you need to do. Good luck.


why not? I am in just about the same boat as bigs5068 and I am planning on going to Phoenix college before transferring.

Hi marcdagr8,

Can you give us an example of what you consider a difficult question?
We might be able to help you by uploading an answer to an specific question.

You are totally right on the logic games part. Practice makes perfect, so keep going! If it helps you in any way, we have uploaded on our website logic games from pretests 35-62 and we are continuing to build on. In the videos, you will find a full explanation on how to solve the game. If you have any games in particular that you are finding difficult to understand, we might have it up for you or you can let us know.

Good luck!

I actually found your videos on youtube. They have been very helpful on a couple of games where I missed important inferences. My biggest issue with the logic games is time, but I guess that I am not unique in that respect.

When reviewing my reading comprehension and logical reasoning questions  source of most of my errors seems to arise from two factors: incorrect determination of a main point sentence or missing a word that subtly changes meanings of the answer choices.

I saw a recommendation on another board of physically cutting out missed questions to allow for side by side comparison.

Once again thanks for the videos on the logic games, they rock!

sorry i meant the logic games bible haha, they teach you how to diagram and approach all the games

All over that one. There seems to be quite the consensus out there that the powerscore logic games bible is the best. I just took PrepTest 12, October 1994, and got 19 on the games section I have definitely improved significantly in this area.

I read on some board out there, perhaps this one, that you can use this website to simulate the LSAT with a real test supervisor:

if it is correct, then you have been studying appropriately.

I considered the powerscore logic reading bible but since I am only missing 1-4 questions on each logical reasoning section I was sure if that book was a good investment. I am concerned that with less than a month before I take the LSAT my time might be better spent with a resource that dosen't start from the beginning.

Are you saying that the test is a joke because it is easy?
