I think you can easily be ready for the February test.
First, I would take the June LSAT which I believe is still available at www.lsac.org.
Once you see how you do then you can make an educated decision on what (if any class) to take. Classes defiantly appear to work well for some people and not as well for others. Generally I would say if you have a lot of room for improvement then the class might be a good idea. On the flip side I started studying for the September test in July, didn't take a class, and scored 175+ so classes aren't the only way to score well.
Basically it all depends on where you're starting and what your study habits are. But no matter where you're starting I think you can defiantly be ready by February even with your work schedule. The real key to studying is just to do a little bit every day, even if it is only one section. Just make sure you go back and TRULY understand every question (not just the ones you got wrong, but also any you may have guessed a little to get right).
Thank you for your insight. My other post was directed at the first reply i got. Question for you. If I get these all important books tomorrow and study them rigorously until Feb, would it be redundant and stressful to take the class or would i simply have a good head start? i am having a hard time deciding which is more likely.
As far as taking the June test as a guide. I feel that may be a bit unfair because i have no experience with the LG and would simply fail with a time limit.
So basically what it boils down to and what i am asking is if i am better off getting both bibles. study study and take as many tests as possible.
OR, get bibles and get head start before powerscore class. Remember I work FULL TIME
