Studying for the LSAT / Re: I cried uncle and postponed my test date
« on: June 08, 2004, 10:20:30 PM »
I'm probably going to postpone.  If I do end up taking it, I'll always wonder want I could have made if I put it off and studied more.  Besides, I'm not scoring where I need to be right now.  But, I still have a bunch of tests I can do till October...but that school-thing might get in the way... 

Like Keating said, Take melatonin.  I love the stuff.  During the school year I often take it Sunday nights so I can get to sleep at a reasonable sleeping habits get out of whack from the Thurs-Fri-Sat weekly partying. 

It works great though. 

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What type of pencil to use?
« on: June 05, 2004, 09:54:51 PM »
Hobby Lobby has a variety of mechanical pencils with different thicknesses of lead.  You could get one that is a little thicker than usual... 

I don't know anything about the Evelyn Wood's program.  But, I took a speed reading class at my high school 4 years ago.  It seemed to help RC, etc. but I'm sure it had something to do with having to read every day.  The class was a semester long.  We tested our speed/RC at the beginning of the class.  Then did the "techniques" for the semester taking a quiz (reading passage w/ questions) each week. 

You basically learn how to skim effectively. 

My speed went from 275wpm to a little over 900wpm on the weekly quizzes. 

What was interesting though, is that at the end of the semester the teacher had us take a quiz (reading passage) and we were supposed to read at our normal comfortable pace instead of the hurried-speedreading/skimming.  I read the passage at what seemed to be amazingly slow, but read the passage around 400wpm. 

The class probably couldn't hurt.  But, it's probably better to just do a lot of the old RC sections of the preptests. 

Hope that helps. 

Studying for the LSAT / Re: October 2nd LSAT

I think the last day is June 13 if you change it online.  I'm probably going to move my test date...

You don't really have anything to lose by taking it then.   I'm in a similar situation (not scoring where I want to and an economics major)  as you.  I'm graduating next May as well.  I know a couple of guys that took the LSAT last October, they're going to various law schools in the fall...

Good luck.

I think Brazil Boy and Jacy are right. 

Something along the lines of that reasoning:

The only people in Mrs. Smith's 1st grade class are children, but they were tall children.  So the only people in Mrs. Smith's 1st grade class were tall people. 

Studying for the LSAT / Re: RC horrible...any improvement?!?!?!?

Well, I've improved a little 19/26 today.  That's still not where I need to be, but I got all the answers right on the last reading passage.  That's a first for me, so I'm still optimistic...

Okay...I'm off to buy some magazines and newspapers.  Thanks for the responses. 

I'll keep you guys informed. 

Studying for the LSAT / RC horrible...any improvement?!?!?!?
« on: May 25, 2004, 08:06:00 AM » first practice LSAT I scored an 80% on the RC.  Not bad, but I'd like to improve it.  BUT, on the last 5 tests (taken 6 so far) I've scored 50-60%. 

Is anyone seeing an improvement in the RC similar to games? 

Thanks for your time.
