Studying for the LSAT / Re: Cannabis and the LSAT

I don't know about getting stoned on test day, but I know it will help me get enough sleep the night before!

BTW, aren't the dope laws in America kind of harsh (excepting California, of course)?  That would suck, getting busted for "intent" while you and your buddies "distribute" a joint in the parking lot moments before your LSAT...  :'(

Another thought... I don't think you are allowed to take munchies with you to the testing room  ;)

I just took #22 a couple of days ago, and I didn't notice any mistakes in the answer key... what was the specific question you found a mistake in?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Sunday, June 13th; Study or Rest?

I've always taken a rest during the 24-hour period before a major test throughout all my schooling, and I don't think I will abandon that strategy now.  I always think that if I'm not ready by then, then nothing that I do in that time period will make me ready, so why not sit back and enjoy the ride?   ;D

That's just me, though...

Coming from the perspective of someone who tutors students in a variety of subjects, it is definitely the case that people will only get out of a tutorial what they put into it.  One must realize that there is no such thing as a course that can guarantee you an improved grade, because it depends so much on what the individual contributes to their own studying.

And also, there are many factors which could adversely affect one's grade that are completely out of the control of Kaplan, such as physical health, bad proctoring, panic attacks, etc.

For the record, I'm not taking any course; I just bought several books to study from, because there's no way that I can afford $1000 for "any damn LSAT course"  :D  And I really think that the strategies that you can learn from any course can also be learned from a book...

Yes, and thank you Windflower for that...

Remember how I was saying that they charge $17.95 + GST (CDN) per individual LSAT in Canada?  Oh, and to give you an idea, all the "10 more Actual, official" series of books have been costing me $72 CDN a pop!

I think those LSAC bastards are making quite enough... ;)

Man, I also just want to get it over with.  But I do have the option of postponing until October, which is fortunate because I have had the flu for the last three days, and even though I have been taking days off work to get better, I'm still not feeling too great.

Not only might I be sick on June 14th, I'm also missing precious days for studying, and I'm just not feeling like I can do it right now... but then again, who wants to take the LSAT in October??

Oh man, can I relate... my entire family has been sick with a bad flu, our doctor just ordered my dad to stay home for the second week in a row, with temps over 103.  I've just started to succumb, and I'm praying like hell that I'll get over it... Cold-FX, please SAVE ME!!!

PS, does anyone know the last day that one could postpone their LSAT if one is registered to write June 14th??   :-\

Hey everyone, about preptests out of "10 Actual", do you think that it is just the games that are easier, or are the other sections easier as well?

I've been working through "10 More", and I think I need more work on all 3 sections, so I've decided to purchase the older book and work through some of those, but I'm worried that they might be drastically different from the test in June...

Your thoughts?

Studying for the LSAT / Are more recent LSAT preptests "better"?
« on: May 31, 2004, 11:48:18 PM »
It's coming down to the crunch, and the LSAT is only 12 days away.  I have been working through the official preptests #19-#28, and I'm purchasing the "10 Actual" preptests tomorrow, which I think includes #9-#18.  Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone knows whether the preptests have changed drastically between these older ones and the most recently available tests (ie: #30-42).  I would purchase a couple of these if I thought it was really worth it, but they are going to cost me almost $20 Cdn per test- a little steep if you ask me!!

Any thoughts on this?
