Studying for the LSAT / Re: Focus Strategy
« on: September 20, 2007, 04:27:27 PM »
Umm, when I take an untimed test, I get a 178-180, and I venture to guess anyone with hopes of doing "well" would also score in that range.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's the timed element that makes the test hard.

One thing I did, using the powerscore method, was to create flash cards with about 300 question stems and drill them repeatedly.  I have not mistakenly categorized a question in weeks.

Good suggestion about the flash cards. The test I took was June 1994 and I think some of the question stems for LR are different. I take untimed tests to get myself familiar with the questions and to spot patterns within the test. The untimed practice helps me process the question types and strategies. I figured I need to be sure I knew what I was answering before I worried about timing myself. I do feel I have a firm grasp on the question types and such, now I am moving into timing myself.

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.

I had the same experience Jeffort when I called them. It felt like I was speaking to someone sitting at a desk in some random warehouse. It was not professional. I appreciate your investigative analysis. Hopefully, anyone else that is trying to find out some information on the company will look up these posts before spending that kind of money.

For the record I was seriously asking a valid question about MLIC. I did some research and found nothing on them and that is why I came to LSD to see if anyone here has heard of them. With all the crazy posters the topic has attracted, I think I have found my answer as to the quality of their course, if they even have one.

Thanks Trump. It's funny, because I can stare at a game for hours and not figure it out. If I put it down and then come back to it later in the day, I can zip right through it! I finally figured that game out. The older games are harder...

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

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.
