Studying for the LSAT / Re: Time Is Not On My Side...
« on: January 16, 2008, 07:53:34 PM »
Hello Everyone,

  I am going to be a first time LSAT taker this February and I have been studying daily for the past two months by going through the LG Bibles and going through timed sections of actual LSAT practice tests. My diagnostic is around a 160, but I'd like to do a heck of a lot better, and I have heard from many on here that you can basically expect to score a little less than your diagnostic...so I'm a little worried.  The one issue on the LSAT that I can't seem to overcome is the timing issue - 35 minutes per section is just not enough for me, especially for the Games section! I just don't know how to overcome my limitation in this area and was wondering if anyone here had any tips for how I can speed up without sacrificing accuracy.

   BTW - I am s-l-o-w at everything I do, just so everyone knows. Whenever I took a test in college I always scored high, but I was always the student who stayed at my desk until the bitter end (while all the other students long since handed in their test and left early). Any flashcard always gave me pause.  For some reason I can't really process something I have read the first time through - I always like to read it again -and then again! Obviously on the LSAT this isn't going to fly - b/c there just isn't enough time to read a stimulus, re-read it, read the answers, re-read them, check your work, etc.  This is all psychologically messing with me.  In my general "type A" test taking nature I have always maximized my time and never left a spare second unused - however I am finding that when it comes to the LSAT I don't have any seconds to spare.  Is it just a matter of taking practice test after practice test after practice test? While I may be able to get down to the wire on LR or RC, I find I make a few stupid mistakes because of a lack of time and not being able to double check my work. When it comes to LG - the LG Bible has been a godsend in terms of learning to solve the games, but nothing has helped me with the time factor. If anyone has any suggestions on improvement in this area I would *GREATLY* appreciate it. Thanks! :)


You should already know this, but in LR read the question before you read the question stem. That way you will know what q type it is and what to look for. It will save you from  reading the stem twice. Overall, it will save you lots of time....seriously.

batman and robin....

that movie should never have been made

No, but it was.  I wish I really could give you those precious minutes of life back, but I can't.  Here's a quote from a much better movie, for 10 points:

X: "I like your nurse's uniform, guy."
Y: "These are O.R. scrubs."
X: "O.R. they?"



Rushmore

Correct - these are too easy I guess


Next Question: Name that movie for 10 points

"They're gonna need some more FBI guys, I guess."

44
Correct!


Next Questions: Name that movie for 10 points

"If they want to drink Merlot, we're drinking Merlot."

The Rules:

2. The player with the most points wins


First Question: Name that movie for 10 points

-"You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you."
