Don't mean to be controversial but this goes against every piece of advice I've seen on LSAT prep on all the LSAT boards.
I found it took me more than ten prep tests to get to grips with the LG (I'm taking it in Dec)and the common advice is to get as many prep tests as you can - especially because they change in difficulty and scale (older LGs are harder, newer RCs are easier, new scale is tougher). One reason people's scores can be different is that they don't practice all the sections together and manage to train themselves out of the fatigue that 2 1/2 hours of logical reasoning can produce. So they get in and make silly mistakes due to tiredness.
The vast majority of people use prep material also and I can't see why 'studying without them' is all that's necessary.
You seem pretty happy to judge all the people around you. You think that wanting to be as prepared as possible and delaying means 'they didn't fight for their score'? That is so ignorant. LOL - are you one of those people who thinks everything has a personality? Or maybe they just made a rational decision and that is pretty key in both the study and practice of law, I've heard. So if you go into the test and you freeze up on a section, maybe due to anxiety, maybe if something just stumps you and you decide to retake, that you are somehow gonna make a bad lawyer? Interesting. This seems to suggest that LSAT performance is the greatest indicator of how good a lawyer you'll be. If that's the case, I'd feel very uncomfortable about only doing 10 prep tests. Wink
