Studying for the LSAT / Advanced techniques in LGB
« on: June 02, 2006, 10:14:25 AM »
How many people use the advanced techniques from the LGB when doing timed games sections?  I am a big fan of the basic LGB techniques, but I find it hard to incorporate the advanced elements like identify the template/possibilities, numerical distributions, etc.

Are these techniques really necessary to be prepared to do the games section?

I have 37 PrepTests and am planning to do about one a day until the exam.  I'm currently about halfway through...

What about the rest of you?

Game 4 on PrepTest 34 (June 2001) is ridiculously misleading-- 1 of the conditions is that if L is at Souderton, then both N and P are at Randsborough, yet 2 other conditions make it clear that N and P CANNOT be at Randsborough at the same time.  Essentially, these conditions contradict each other.

Are any other logic games this confusing (with misleading and contradictory questions)???

Studying for the LSAT / Practice scores go down with stress?
« on: May 09, 2006, 11:29:56 AM »
I've taken about 15 practice tests, from the 10 Actual and 10 More Actual Preptests books, and my scores over time have risen slowly, peaked very high and then started falling (my most recent score yesterday was ten points lower than my peak score). 

I've been taking the tests under slight pressure circumstances (public library, timed, no break between sections).  I'm starting to get bored and tired of taking so many practice tests--should I work through my boredom in order to build endurance, or should I take a break from studying to refresh?

Studying for the LSAT / Food and drink at test center?

I've gotten conflicting reports about this.  On their website, LSAC maintains that you're not allowed to bring food or drinks into the test center, but it seems like most people do anyway.  I can't imagine not being able to eat or drink anything during the break--but 10-15 minutes isn't enough time to run to a vending machine or car for a snack.

Are food/drinks allowed?  Thanks!
