"Jeffort Price Worth Dou-chebaggery III"

The best part about that name is that there had to have been at least 2 others before you with that same name.

Incorrect. 

It is and always has been me!  Same account and all.  Look at my profile stats including registered date and total time online with this account.  I'm the original and the one and only!  I may look new because of my low post count but am not.  Before my year+ long hiatus from the LSD LSAT board I used to have around 8000 posts with this account but had to d-dub them last year for reasons I will not specify. 

When I registered this account on May 17, 2006 my original avatar was:





LOL. Dude, reread my post.

I'm not doubting whether or not you're the original Jeffort on LSD.

Yeah, I just realized that after Earlcat explained it to me in a gmail chat.  lol

With the sudden temperature drop out here my brain was frozen for a few minutes waking up with the morning cold while I searched for my hoodie!

(not like it's REAL cold, but it's Socal cold, meaning low 60s!  lol)

Found hoodie, put it on, brain warmed up now!

With a name like "Jeffort" I envision a churchhill-esque looking guy with a monocle and tophat.

Do you have a post-nominal following your last name per chance?

lol, no.  I look nothing close to a churchhill-esque guy.  I'm at a total loss about how my name brings that visual to mind.

Yes to your question.


LOL. That was a total stab in the dark.

You should really look into the avatar suggestions that EarlCat posted.

ehh, I'm kinda fond of my current avatar and have been using it for several years.  I tried to find a picture of a child wearing a monocle but failed.  Maybe some photoshop magic could fix that!

Does anyone have a suggested order to tackle the LSAT Preptests?
I am taking the December LSAT and have finally aquired all the preptests.  I'm looking for a good regimen to propel me through the next few months.

Thanks in advance!

A rough order of older to newer along the lines of what All Star said is a good idea for doing full length timed practice tests as part of your prep routine to measure progress leading up to test day and for ONCE you are ready to focus more on timing and taking full timed tests more regularly.

To start your prep routine since it sounds like you are just getting going, aside from doing one initial full timed practice test ASAP (and you should use a pretty recent one for this, like say the June 2007 LSAT) to get a baseline indication of your pre-prep starting score range, DO NOT jump right into just churning and burning by doing a bunch of timed tests prior to learning and studying the concepts that are tested.

After taking an initial baseline practice test you should go through the tests un-timed/in slow motion with the focus of getting familiar with the various repetitive concepts/patterns/question types/game types/etc. as well as learning and practicing good logically based techniques to apply. 

Work the problems slowly and carefully at first.  Study and practice with older materials during the majority of your prep time making sure to spend a lot of time reviewing mistakes and concepts you are weak on.  During this time, which should be the bulk of your prep time, bouncing around through the tests to organize your use by concepts and question types is better than basing it mainly on the age of the test.   Lather rinse repeat while slowly moving into the phase of mostly taking full timed tests shortly before test day. 

Save a majority of the most recent tests for OCCASIONAL timed practice to measure your progress as you go along.  During your untimed prep/study and learning time it is better to organize your use of the materials around question types and such than by the chronological dates of the preptests.

Pretty much, especially for popular test centers in large populated areas such as parts of New York, Southern California, Chicago and others.  If you want to insure that you get a test center near where you reside so that you don't have to drive really far you should NOT wait until the last minute to register.  Many test centers fill up long before the registration deadline.

Business is a boomin.

Should set up a stand outside the ztesting center as folks go in, you'd make a killing.

Matthies, it was probably a typo but you got me laughing in a good way to start the day.  I read your post as 'zesting' center, like the soap. 

http://www.zest.com/

Their slogan is currently "Zest cleans life's dirt"  and I thought it fit what test day is all about pretty well!   :D

When I sat for the LSAT I didn't even bring a sharpener. Instead, I had nearly 50 presharpened pencils.

Nice, that's one pencil for every two bubbles you fill in or alternatively a good supply to conduct a quick and profitable pre-test swap meet while waiting in the check in line.  A couple of bucks a piece per pencil from people that forgot to bring enough or brought a mechanical pencil instead and you could have recouped part of the test registration fee.

That could really be a profitable venture. 

According to the LSAC test day rules:

Quote
Items Allowed on the Desktop

Test takers may only have tissues, ID, wooden pencils, erasers, a pencil sharpener, highlighter, and analog (nondigital) wristwatch. No electronic devices are permitted. No timers of any kind except analog wristwatches.

Noting the plural use of 'pencils' it appears that the rules allow one to bring in as many pencils as you can fit into a one gallon ziplock bag and one could make a killing selling more during the break.

-  Cuz the SAT and other standardized tests banned them cuz a bunch of cheating HS kids wrote out cheat sheets and stuff on small strips of paper they rolled up and stuck inside the tube of a mechanical pencil a number of years back to get into college.

 


Your shitting me, seriously if people are smart enough to come up with these ways to cheat, then just study, I mean it seems like finding a new way to cheat takes more energy than just studying. I know for the bar we had to take all the lables off of any thing we brought in to eat or drink (or we were supposed to, but half the people did not seem to read the directions and only about half the protors enforced it). I guess maybe people put answers on the isnide of the lable on sosda or something. but geeze, too much work, just study!

PS OP great post thanks for sharing and welcome to LSD as a poster!

Not shitting you, stuff like that happened with the SAT and other tests a number of years ago.

No kidding about simply using time and energy to study. I cannot understand the cheating mentality.  All the time and effort creating such schemes has to be much more than what it would take to just learn the stuff to perform well, plus the offenders get the guilt, fear and anxiety about getting caught and trying to keep their lies straight.  That is unless the offender is a sociopath.

They really have a bar exam rule in your state banning labels on snacks and drink items?  That is preposterous!  Peeling the label completely off a beverage bottle can be tough (How the heck would you glue it back on unripped after writing microprint stuff on the back?), plus, who wants to eat a stale dried out energy bar that has been out of the wrapper for a while? 

What's next? Naked testing?  Make everyone strip down in one room, then proctors issue each person a few pencils and a towel to put on the seat of their chair as they are herded one by one into the testing room? 

Just like in grade school, it only takes a few jack-arse hoodlums to spoil things and get everyone punished.
