I have recently finished my first read-through of the LGB and am working heavily on the LRB in preparation for the September exam. What is troubling is that, after working with both these books for three weeks and other methods for two weeks before that, I have yet to see an increase in my score. I am slowly getting the hang of LG setups, yet there has yet to be that "AH-HA" moment - that moment when I can classify the game quickly and accurately and get all of the pertinent inferenced. In LR, I still miss some key things and am really waiting for the same sort of epiphany.
Is there a tendency to "snap into it" at some point, or does progress come very slowly at first and exponentially as preparation goes on? I am starting to think that I do not have enough time to raise my score to the level I would like before the exam in September.
Does anyone have any tips on how to best integrate the material learned in the Bibles? What should my ratio of timed/untimed exams be and at what interval is it suggested that I test my progress with another timed, test-condition exam? I have read all the links provided in the "Liz's LSAT..." thread and still find myself confused as to the best way of proceeding.
I have approx. 20 untaken prep-tests remaining and will be purchasing another 10 (the oldest tests) in the next days. My fear is that I will run out of prep material before I have sufficiently grasped the concepts.
Also, is there an amount of time per day more than which is counterproductive to study?
I am sorry for so many questions - I am just starting to freak out and know that there are many people on here who really know their stuff.
I am SO GRATEFUL to all who will help!! I am sorry for the rambling nature of this post. I thank you all in advance for your kind words of help and encouragement - perhaps I can return the favor someday.
