Studying for the LSAT / Question on LG
« on: June 09, 2004, 11:22:17 AM »
I want to take an old test with as difficult of a Logic Games section that I could possibly see (granted I'll never know what to expect from those sneaky bastards).

The newer ones are probably a bit more accurate, so around Test 30 (?) or later would be ideal.

If any of you can conjur up anything I'd really appreciate it. I plan on taking it tonight so if you have any ideas just post 'em up...

Studying for the LSAT / Desperately need advice

I really need some advice...

I am registered to take the June test (1 week). I previously signed up for the February test but, due to extraneous circumstances, never studied and making the decision to postpone required little thought.

I started at a 155 and always said I'd be content with above a 160. Though I signed up for Kaplan, I've only used it for self study, taking as many practice tests as possible for the last month and a half. My scores in the past 6 days (1 test/day) go like this (from yesterday back): 161, 162, 155, 160, 161, 156.

Obviously, what scares me are the 155 and the 156...those are scores I would be unsatisfied with, mainly bc that's where I started.

I've consistently scored around 83% LR, 72% RC, and Games has always been the X factor. The highest I've hit is around 62%, but when I do poorly it throws everything. At this point, I feel like I'll know my fate, should I take it next week, solely based on the games I'm given.

My thought process is this...throughout my studies, I can't say that I've really developed any new strategies except to move quickly. For logic games I learned about diagramming and that stuff...but nothing really new. When I do poorly in a game its nearly always bc of time and time becomes a factor when I have to correct very careless mistakes (whether they be from diagramming, misreading a clue, or skipping a clue). On the flipside, though I never really worked hard for the Feb test, this would be my second time postponing.

Should I postpone? Does it sound like there is much I can do to improve my score? Moreover, what kind of committment would it take from now until October? Will the studying I've done in the past 2 months even help me in October?

Feel free to post, but please also email me with a response)
