I do the first 12-13, then the last 4, skipping the PR question. I usually finish that in about 18-23 minutes, depending on the difficulty. That leaves about 15 minutes for the difficuklt batch in the middle, which for me I usually have to diagram and read a couple of times. Even with that, those are sometimes a crapshoot. I usually miss 3-6 on LR, although the first LR on test 48 took me to the shed yesterday...I missed 9. It was the first section, and I hadn't doen LR in a few days (not to make excuses) I think my brain needs to warm up at first, because I usually get better as the test progresses. Taking 45 today, eish me luck.
the tests don't come with explanations aside from the superprep series. that's how you learn ...by reviewing the tests to see why you got the wrong (and correct answers). you can get test 20 for free from lsac.org (or is it lsadas.org?) one or the other. print it out, take it timed, and see where you stand and then go from there.

I'm still struggling to finish all four games on some tests, and it seems like I can never miss fewer than 8 questions when taking a timed test. I'm taking tests from around 2000 now, and I know that the games are shortly due to get easier. I'm wondering, what is it about recent games that makes them less challenging than those from five years ago?
I was wondering the same thing...I'm up to 2002, they do get a bit easier. or maybe i've been doing them so long i'm finally starting to "get it". it's hard for me to get through all four though. i usually get about 3 and a half now.
I thought the October 2002 (#38) RC was pretty challenging. Anybody else agree?
taking it tonight, i'll let you know then. FWIW, I thought one of the passages on 37 was a little dense. It's really all subjective though.

If you are absolutely, positively sure you want to be a lawyer and you really want to go to Univ of Maryland, then go ahead and go to school. If one or both of those statements aren't true, then take the job and reasess in a year.
I cosign this one too. But it doesn't make sense to go through the whole process unless you really want to be a lawyer anyway IMO, although i'd venture to say that most people go to law school because they don't know what else to do. The best advice I ever got about law school was my senior year in college...an HLS grad (who never practiced law a day in his life, I don't even think he took the bar) told me that unless you're absolutely, positively, 110% sure you want to be an attorney, don't go to law school. It took me 10 years and 2 careers to figure out that I want to be an attorney.
Not trying to hihack the thread.

you'd probably be better off going to school and upping your earning potential post-law school. Just a thought from my perspective.
