lol. Thanks for cooling out the thread. I'll try not to take anything said here personally. Btw, thanks for the advice you provided earlier in the thread. I'll definitely try to focus more study time on reviewing questions (both right and wrong) and trying to identify why correct answers are correct, why incorrect answers are incorrect, etc. Your post was the best post in this entire thread.
See, if your first response to Jeffort was more like this, I never would have said anything.
Can someone please tell me what this abbreviation stands for? (titcr) Much obliged.

Thanks. If I've already hit my potential for this exam, should I just stop studying? Or just study enough to maintain that same score?
Hmmmmm...I don't really know how to answer that. I wouldn't even know how to know that you've hit your potential. My LSAT studying was so rushed, so my experience was different than most. I would say generally speaking, the more studying the better, but don't go so crazy that you burn out. One test a day every day for two months, would probably cause you to burn out. But if you do 2-4 a week, then go over them thoroughly, I think that's the best option, like others have been saying. I did almost a test a day for about 4 weeks, and the last 3-4 days I was just kinda sick of it, whereas before that I actually enjoyed the test.
One of the things I don't like about prep classes...is that you've seen every single LSAT question, but you've only taken 14 tests under real test-like circumstances. Even when I looked through the Powerscore Bibles a couple of weeks before the test, I ignored examples from tests I hadn't taken yet. Whether it was wise I don't know, but my biggest concern was taking as many tests under real conditions as possible (Of course my other biggest concern should have been going over them much more thoroughly) Not saying this applies to you, but so many people I know start off their LSAT studying by taking a class. I think that's generally a bad strategy, because you should be very familiar with the test before you start getting taught how to take it, at least in my opinion.
On a side note, related to your question about whether you should stop studying....I think sometime soon I'm going to take the December 2006 test, just for shits and giggles. I took the Sept. 06 exam and haven't looked at an LSAT since. I'm curious to see how an extended break from the test affects me. I'd say probably not that much, just because of the nature of the test. I would guess I'll do about the same on LR and RC, but games I'll probably do a little worse.
Wow, at some point I got away from your question and started rambling.
