Studying for the LSAT / Focus Strategy
« on: September 20, 2007, 04:12:43 PM »
When I take an untimed test, I can score in the 170's. When I take them timed, I score significantly lower. I feel that my problem is that I loose focus under timed constraints. When I read the questions, I am not digesting the information and picking apart the argument. Are there any strategies out there to curb this discrepency between timed and untimed tests, specifically, how to maintain my focus on the question at hand and not the time it takes to answer them? Do I just need more practice? 

Thanks.

Please watch this movie, it will seriously piss you off and force you to question reality and the current state of our governmental affairs. You have to watch it on your computer and it is about 2 hours long. Let it download for a couple of minutes before you press play. Let me know what you think.

Studying for the LSAT / Prep Test 9 Section 3 Game #3
« on: September 14, 2007, 10:13:04 AM »
I can't wrap my head around this game. Are there supposed to be three pairs of partners per dance? It just does not make sense to me yet. I guess I am asking if anyone can shed some light as to how to set this game up. Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Old Prep tests vs. New Prep Tests
« on: September 12, 2007, 03:51:30 PM »
I have started practicing with the older 7-18 preptests. I have noticed some significant differences between the older LR qestion stems and the newer ones. Would it behoove me to practice my timed tests with the newer prep tests since they are more like the real thing? Is the consensus that the older LG and LR are more difficult? Some of the LR question stems I had a hard time decifering which type of question it was?

Studying for the LSAT / How to proceed with studying..
« on: September 11, 2007, 09:06:10 AM »
So here is the deal. I am not taking the LSAT until December. I have about 20 tests left to study with. I have been through both bibles as well. I have taken an initial timed diagnostic and scored a 156 about two months ago. I am scoring in the 170's untimed now. I know that is not indicative of my timed performance, I just use the tests to examine each type of question. I am beginning to feel comfortable with LR and the question types. RC is a breeze for me and the LG are kind of a hit or miss.I can do well on LG untimed. I have not mastered each type of game yet but I can get them right with all the time in the world. How should I proceed with studying from here? I have about 12 weeks left. Should I take a timed test every week until the real thing? Should I focus on one section until I fully master it? Should I not take another timed test until I have mastered LG? I guess my question is when should I begin to take timed tests consistently?
Any suggestions would be helpful.
Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Prep Test #30 Dec 1999 Section 2 Q22
« on: September 10, 2007, 08:15:46 PM »
I can't seem to figure out why "E" in the correct answer. I would post the questions but I am not sure if that is allowed. If I can get some clarification, I will post it. Also, since E is thw right answer, how do you negate it?

Studying for the LSAT / Flaw in Reasoning questions..
« on: September 06, 2007, 06:17:35 PM »
I seem to have trouble with these questions. I have reviewed the LRB and understand the different types, but I have trouble recognizing them in the questions. Is there any other method to employ with these types of questions?

Thanks

Studying for the LSAT / Which to master first?
« on: September 04, 2007, 10:14:36 AM »
I would like to know how people approach studying for the different sections of the LSAT. I feel like I need to completely master the LR questions before I move on to the LG sections. I do not have a problem with the RC section. Do you concentrate on one section before moving to another? Do you mix up the studying? What works best for you? I am not taking the test until December and applying for Fall of 09 so I have some time left.

Thanks

Studying for the LSAT / "I'm hot for teacher"...
« on: August 30, 2007, 09:07:34 PM »
What am I looking for when I am assessing the quality of a prep course teacher. Has anyone had the opportunity to interview a teacher before taking the class? Is a high sore enough? Thanks!
