6th - no idea - some mix of Hawaiian culture and history, I'm sure
7th - Hawaiian History
8th - US History
9th - Global Issues (I really don't know), but now it's MT history here
10th - World History
11th - US History
12th - 1 semester of US Govt, except for AP - for us, the full year but on alternating days of the week

Which reminds me, I took Indep. Study Spanish those other 2 days of the week, and I just got a card in the mail from my Spanish teacher (I think I had her 3 yrs in hs) congratulating me on graduation. It was really sweet :)

Anyone else watch "La Catrina" in Spanish class?  Greatest video series ever.

Hells yeah.  It had a rocking soundtrack.  I just remember that anytime someone said "La Catrina" they were, apparently, obligated to say it in an appropriately weighty and dramatic tone ("La -- CATrrrrina"!)

Beats all the Fellini I had to watch in college Italian.  You cannot convince me that anyone actually likes 8 1/2.

Lol...whenever we would talk about it, we would say "La Catrina" in that tone.  And yeah, I have the soundtrack on my ipod.

Lamar is a loser.

Should we call him "La Loser"? (Dodgeball reference)

And does that mean he's not on facebook?

Lamar, are we friends on facebook?  I'm the one with the "Ocean Vista" sign up my ass in my facebook picture.  Friend me.  ;)

My school system was really weird:  K-5 (elementary), 6-8 (middle), 9-10 (high), 11-12 (senior high).  Theoretically to allow for more AP classes, but I think it was all about getting as many juniors and seniors together for the Varsity Football Team.

What did I take...

7th:  Texas History
8th:  American History through the Civil War
9th:  Humanities plus accelerated post-Civil War American History
10th: Humanities plus accelerated world history
11th: Government (1/2) and Economics (1/2)
12th: European History

Humanities was the ish.  We built Greek polises and warred with the rival factions, wore togas during the unit on Rome, dressed in Medieval garb and paraded across town for a Crusade, carved the David out of soap...

I was supposed to take geography for a year, but never felt like it, so I ended up taking it by correspondence but not finishing on time so I didn't get to graduate.   ::)

I went to a toga party last year.  I bet my toga experience was very different from yours.  At least I would hope so.

Nope, but we watched Toy Story in Spanish :P

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is this enough LSAT studying??

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.  ;)

My district was elementary school K-6, and then 7-12 was all in the high school - no middle school

For social studies, we did US history 7 and 8, World history 9 and 10, US History again in 11, then senior year was economics first half, U.S. government 2nd half.

We never did state history, which still seems kinda weird to me.  But the way they did it in my district seems pretty strange too.  Basically 3.5 years of U.S. history vs. 2 years of all other human history.

Oh man, replies when I was posting....

Jeffort - as for deleting, don't worry, I basically just deleted smiley faces.

Ghost - I was just kidding.  Don't take me too seriously.

In regards to your original post, I still think what Jeffort says pertains to you.  You said you were gonna do TM stuff or whatever, then take a test per day for 2 months, going over the questions you got wrong.  If I'm understanding correctly, you might be focusing too much on taking the tests, and not enough on reviewing.

So you have about 60 days in August and September.  Instead of taking 60 tests (a lot of which would be repeats) and then going over only the questions you got wrong, as you say in the OP....I would instead recommend something more like, taking a test every other day (30 tests), and then really really really looking at each question in depth, trying to understand why the right answer is right, why wrong answers are wrong, identifying common mistakes you made, etc.

I took a few practice tests over the summer, but 95% of my preparation happened in September last year.  I basically did like 20 tests in 4 weeks, looked over the questions I got wrong, and then moved on to the next test.  This was a bad strategy - don't do this.
