I'll go with lonewolf on this one.  I was faced with the same situation and have decided not to take a prepcourse.  It is starting to look like its working out alright for me.  Additionally, if they are horrible (which both supposedly are) then your taking one is only going to take time which you could better use studying the bibles or taking more preptests.

Book sales, auctions, trades, etc. / Looking to buy newer preptests
« on: January 19, 2007, 05:21:24 PM »
I am looking to buy any preptests from 39 on.  I would be particularly interested if someone had most/all of them and would be willing to pay extra if that were the case.

Thanks,

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Which subjects should I study first?
« on: January 16, 2007, 04:19:02 PM »
I'm going to have to agree with Liz on this one.  To me that first (awful) score served more to motivate me and show me where I needed to improve.  Also, you can always take another diagnostic (and I would recommend it over and over and over, lol).

After that I would recommend studying games because that is typically the easiest area to pick up quite a few points.  Also, in studying games and continuing to take practice tests you will probably begin to understand the patterns in LR because of taking quite a few tests.  This will make the LR bible a LOT easier to digest as opposed to just studying it without having seen quite a few LR questions already.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: about test date change and cancel
« on: January 14, 2007, 09:04:04 PM »
It is possible to move from February to June.  I think that you just have to wait until LSAC updates the website with all of the test dates for June.  I definitely wouldn't just cancel if I were you.  You can find this information if you read through the test date change information located here http://lsac.org/LSAC.asp?url=lsac/test-dates-deadlines.asp#Test-date-change-refund.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Feb test takers
« on: January 14, 2007, 08:19:03 PM »
I'm trying to decide.  I haven't studied near as much as most but am seeing a lot of improvement quickly.  I am hoping that my last test wasn't a fluke and that I can keep up the pace I have set so far in improvement.  Needless to say, if I can keep pushing up my score leading up to feb. I will be retaking right alongside you.  I'd probably have to be getting consistent high 160's though.  If not I'll wait until June.

It is going to be a tough decision for me.  I would like to get it all over in february but I know that I can probably score higher if I just wait.  I'll keep you posted I suppose.

56
Yeah, I saw that page too.  Had me worried for a minute until I found it.  It looks like I'll still be able to change if need be.  Which is definitely a relief.  On a positive note I hit 160 for the first time today on my 4th practice test.  I was so excited I had to say something about it. Hopefully it keeps climbing like it has.

Why can't you go from Feb to June?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Analytical Reasoning???

You want to get the LSAT Logic Games Bible by Powerscore if you are having trouble with the games.  I have been working through it and I feel it is safe to say that it really is the Bible on the subject.

I think you're probably right Theo, as usual.  I will probably end up just moving my test date to June.  I am just panicing because I decided to go ahead and register for february in case I was ready (knowing full well I could move it if need be).  If I have a string of 170's in the next couple of weeks then I suppose I'll take it in February but otherwise I think you're right that June is going to be my best option. 

You also voiced my other major concern.  It looks like LSAC is trying to tweak the LSAT and in the next couple of years it could be drastically different.  I just hope I don't study incredible amounts to get some great score and then end up with it being worthless because they changed the stupid test a lot for the first time in over 10 years.

Na, I knew what you were talking about city slicker I just had to give you a hard time, lol.  We haven't been assigned a specific country yet.  Everything with the Peace Corps takes forever until the end where it sounds like you get an assignment (date, time, place) about a month before you leave.  But it seems like we will probably be somewhere on the west cost because we were told we had to take some french classes.  But that could just be standard issue for anyone they send to Africa I'm not sure.  Should know more in about a month.  We are supposedly leaving sometime in July.  Thanks for the interest though.  That is awesome that you were in Kenya!

And Yale is only a dream.  A pipe dream based on my diagnostic LSATs so far, lol.  Hopefully the bibles will get me up there where I want/need to be.
