Studying for the LSAT / After the Bibles
« on: June 25, 2007, 12:55:28 AM »
 I feel like I have pretty good grasp on the concepts presented in the Bibles. Should I start taking the practice tests now? I have a TM course starting in about 2~3 weeks (which I can't finish as I explained the other thread). What can I do before the course starts? I have the Deconstructed LSAT book but I feel like saving it until the end. I also have some books that only have really difficult questions (workbooks made by PR and Krapland  ;D) and I dont feel very confident about RC sections since I didnt do any preparation for it. BTW I love this board! You guys are great!  ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Can't finish the entire TM course
« on: June 23, 2007, 01:29:52 AM »
Since school starts around August 20ish, I dont think I can finish TM course for Sept test because my school is so far away from home. So I will be missing around 1/3 of the course lectures and in-class stuff. Do you think it is ok for me to study on my own after finishing 2/3 of the course or is taking every single class necessary for me to increase my score. I am willing to study as hard as possible. Those of you who took TM please help me out!  ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Principle Q's
« on: June 21, 2007, 10:22:14 PM »
I think I significantly improved my LR skills overall  ;), but I am still having some problems regarding the 'abstract' questions where you have to match the language of the answer choices to the structure of stimulus. They sometimes all sound the same to me, especially the most difficult ones that take up half the page. Can anyone suggest a solution to my problem? I also tried some problems on the book called Princeton Review Workbook, which is supposed to have all the most difficult questions. Is this book good for improving my skills to solve the really difficult problems? I like to thank you all for helping me! *love*  :)

Studying for the LSAT / Reading comprehension sucks!

Why arent there any Bible for RC?  :-\ I wish there were some books that have systematic approach to solving RC Q's.
Can anyone recommend anyting else than Nova's? Also, do you think just studying Nova's methods for RC can be as effective as reading Bibles for LR and LG? Thanks in advance! btw, my LR skills are improving! Thanks for all the great tips people!

Studying for the LSAT / Flaw Questions
« on: June 13, 2007, 06:09:36 AM »
 I am having a lot of problems understanding the wording used in answer choices of Flaw Questions  :-[ I do think I am very focused and I try to watch out for the subtle differences between what is stated in answers and what was said in the stimulus. However, I still get really confused over some complexly worded answers and get them wrong. Is there anything that you people can recommend to improve my ability to understand these answer choices? I would greatly appreciate your help! Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / Studying time
« on: June 06, 2007, 12:21:02 AM »
 I just spent about 4 hours studying/reviewing concepts from LRB and did some practice on preptests. When I got out of the library I felt like my brain was fried and thought there are so much materials to study just for the LR sections. Even though I am very enthusiastic about studying, this test surely requires a LOT of studying to master it. I previously read LRB twice but now realize that skimming throught it doesnt do much for you. So I am trying to apply every concept and analyze them in more details. But I really doubt that 3 and half month is good enough for me to master (by that I mean making every concepts as my second nature) it, considering I have to do the same for LG and RC sections. How do you people manage to do this? or am I wrong in my studying method?  :(

Studying for the LSAT / How-to avoid making unncessary assumptions
« on: June 02, 2007, 03:18:48 AM »
I realized majority of the questions I get wrong from LR sections require a keen sense of reading whats on the passage while not generalizing. (I guess this applies to all the questions) I think my main problem is with understanding the passage as what it is because I continually mix it up with what I think of them personally. As an example, I tend to add some thoughts of evaluation of the passage while I read them. How do you people avoid making generalizations while reading the passage. How can you read the entire passage from word to word without relating to your personal experiences or opinions. I am talking about higher level of reading if you know what I mean. I would greatly appreciate help! thanks in advance!  :)

Studying for the LSAT / I feel so depressed.. help!
« on: May 31, 2007, 11:47:23 PM »
I have been studying for the LR sections for about 2 months but did not see much improvement on my score. :'( Most of the time I get the first 10 questions correct (despite the fact that I have to read some stimulus couple times to really understand it) but the questions 10~20 give me much trouble. I feel the stimuluses and answer choices are way to difficult for me to read through and often have to spend so much time just to comprehend the meaning of the question. I cant even finish 20 questions and still get many wrong answers. I read the logical reasoning bible twice and have studied quite a lot exclusively for LR sections but I do not seem to improve at all. What is my problem? One thing I want to point out is that I just feel way too overwhelmed to face all these dense, confusing questionis in the later half of the section. Could anybody please help me? I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
