Studying for the LSAT / LG is killling me....
« on: August 12, 2006, 11:44:25 AM »
Ive gone through the LG Bibles twice and understand much of the concepts.  The trouble seems to be that sometimes i will see key inferences/deductions right away, will plug em up, and get anywhere from 80-90% of the LG section right, which will take me into the mid 160's (what im shooting for fo rthe Sept lsat).  However, sometimes i just wont get some key inferences on the LG, and wont finish, maybe get to 2 and a half games, and end up with a 40-50% which would then result in a mid to high 150's. 

Therefore, Ive been devoting most of my studying recently to LG's hoping with time that it will just becoming more intuitive.  I guess what i wanna know is if anyone else has had this problem and what has worked to overcome these obstacles or perhaps facilitate progress.  I hope i can get this down since all other things being equal, if i do fairly well with LG, i should be in the 160s.

Studying for the LSAT / Question about a LG question...

Preptest 42 Section 1/LG Question number 12.

Why is the answer C. Four and not E. Six? 

If you know that for P to be 4th, M needs to be first, F next, and thus G seems as if all 6 spots r completely determined

Studying for the LSAT / When scoring past LSATs what scale do you use?
« on: August 10, 2006, 07:58:22 AM »
Do you use th emost recent conversion scale or do you use the scale that was used for that particular test?  For example, I got a 163 using the scale that came with that particular exam, but using a more recent scale, I would be at a 160 ish.

I would think that one should use the scale that was used for the individual exams, but it seems as if some peopel on here use the most recent ones?  Kinda curious as to why...

Hey all.  Im preparing for the sept 30th LSAT and have been taking a Kaplan class.  Despite all the bad things ive been hearing, my experience has been helpful and maybe a bit mundane/irritating (pace of the class that is) at worst.  That being said, Im only 2 weeks into the course, which is scheduled to end rigth before the sept lsat.

After hearing so much good stuff about the Powerscore strategies, Ive considered taking a look.  However, will this be confusing for someoen if they have been "indoctrinated" with the "Kaplan Method"?  Just curious whether trying to learn both will confuse me. 

Thanks for the help.
