What about PrepTest 23?  It's an older test, but it's the one with the ridiculously easy scale.

I've gotten the exact same raw score on my last 8 PrepTests, regardless of scale or number of questions.  Hmmm...I don't know whether to be relieved that I'm consistent, or disappointed that I'm plateauing.

I don't think all the reading passages are that much more difficult, but they are long.  Expect to read more per passage--up to a paragraph or so.

Also, the RC now has more questions (27-28 instead of 26-27) and the questions are more conceptual, with more "likely to agree" and "this can be inferred" rather than factual questions.

Are you practicing at the level you want to score at?

I've tried both bubbling techniques, and I'm a lot more comfortable bubbling after every question.  It gives me a sense of accomplishment that really motivates me to continue, and I've noticed that I tend to misbubble more often when I save up a whole page to bubble at once.

On RC though, where I struggle with timing, I tend to bubble every 2-3 questions, in order to save a little bit of time.

In the past, LSAT scores have sometimes been released prior to the official release date.  Does that mean that we could get our scores even earlier than the 29th?

Does anyone else think that PT 45's LR was really hard?  It's been about three weeks since I took it, but I remember the second LR section being a killer--lots of very complex and time composing questions.

Maybe I'm going to the wrong place...this is what I see:

Score by E-Mail For online account holders only. No additional charge.  July 3, 2006, 10 A.M. (ET)

Telscore 215.968.1200 $10.00 fee  July 3, 2006, 7 P.M. (ET)

Score Report Mailed  Additional charges may apply.  July 10, 2006

To get there, I logged into my account and clicked the link for additional information about the Item Response Review and scrolled up a bit.  Are there other methods?

In case we're all going the same route, a geographic and last name break down would be interesting.  I live in South Texas and my last name is fairly far from "A."

Hmm...I went on LSAC, clicked on Account Status and selected LSAT.  It pulled up a page with separate sections for Testing Staus, Test Information and Test Documents.  Under Test Information, there is a chart with a column for Score Email Date and under that, 6/29/2006.

I'm hoping the 6/29/06 date holds, so we don't have to wait the weekend.

I had an absolutely hellish spring semester (I had several ridiculous historical research courses at the same time) and had to leap immediately into LSAT prep when it finished on May 9th.  Because of this, I plan on taking a rural vacation within a few days of the 12th.  I am looking forward to that a great deal.  Since you guys have given me the idea, I might just bring my LSAT prep stuff to burn in a bonfire.

Oh yeah, has anyone else had problems with the "10 actual" series of books?  By the time I finished doing four tests, they would detach from the spine and fall apart.  Cheap junk, I hope it burns well.

Yep, my SuperPrep fell apart after a couple weeks. The "10 actual" books seemed to be more durable but the 2nd one just started losing pages.

My More Actual (#2) book is also falling apart, but #1 and #3 are holding up pretty well.

I'm going to hold off my post-LSAT celebration until after the LSD post-mortem.  Then, it'll be a vacation and some traveling so that I won't have to be miserable waiting for my score to be released.

October 2002 test for me --

2 wrong LR
2 wrong RC
1 wrong LG

Score: 177

I don't know what makes the difference in my scores.  Several times I've gotten scores in the 170's only to be followed by a score in the high 160's.  I think it has a great deal to do with how tired I am, my mindset, and how much pressure I put on myself to score highly (ie: more is worse for me).

Congrats on the 177!  This kind of fluctuation has happened to me too.  I think you should take a day or two of rest, but keep in mind that learning to work under pressure can be beneficial.  Many people have horror stories about not getting any sleep before test day or freaking out during the test, so if you're able to work through those difficulties in practice and get a great score, that'll improve your performance AND give you a confidence boost.
