Studying for the LSAT / Re: Read all rules and THEN diagram?
« on: June 07, 2004, 09:34:07 PM »
I can see the logic behind PowerScore's recommendation, but in practice, it slows me down too much. I just read enough to get a sense of what type of game it is (i.e. what diagram/approach to use) and then I start drawing. I think taking a few seconds to modify a diagrammed rule when there's new info is ok; having to erase your entire setup because you thought it was an advanced linear game when it's really a grouping game is NOT ok.

Studying for the LSAT / I cried uncle and postponed my test date

At first I thought I was just having last-minute jitters, but after much soul-searching, I finally allowed myself to admit that I'm just not ready for the June test - despite two months of hardcore studying. I've gone through the LG Bible (twice), a bunch of prep books (Nova, Kaplan, PR, though most of it is crap), 15+ prep tests, AND a weekend PowerScore course, but I'm still stuck in the low 160s. I scored 164 on my first diagnostic test back in November, I just scored 162 yesterday on my latest practice test, and I've been scoring 159-164 on all the tests in between. Maybe I'm just dense, but obviously I'm missing SOMETHING and I have no clue what that is. I really underestimated the LSAT (or overestimated my abilities). ARGH!

So what's the final review for the class?  Was it worthwhile?

Definitely yes. I wish I could've taken the full-length class too. Keep in mind though that a lot depends on both the quality of the individual instructor *and* your classmates. M2 and I lucked out on both fronts in our class.

Hey, don't be so doubtful!  There may be quite a few women on this board.  Just because we don't have pictures of ourselves up or don't actually state we are women does not mean we are not here!  ;)

That's right, M2. Remember what we learned in class: just because you can't prove the existence of women on this board does not mean that there aren't any!  ;D

Ack, I've been outed!!!

This is the (former) lurker here.

As to how I id'ed M2, let's see:

1) I knew that M2 would be in the NYC weekend class
2) M2 was the only boy in class whose name started with an M
2) M2 introduced himself as a comp sci major from Florida (both well-known facts on the board)

Am I Sherlock Holmes or what? 8)
