Studying for the LSAT / Re: June LSAT vs. October LSAT

I should probably add that I plan on being ready to send out my applications as soon as I receive my score.

Studying for the LSAT / June LSAT vs. October LSAT
« on: April 03, 2008, 10:12:08 AM »
I'm sure this question comes up quite frequently, but I'm debating whether I should take the June or October 2008 LSAT.  I'm currently registered to take the one in October, but I am thinking about re-scheduling and registering for the one in June.  The reason for this is that I've been reading a lot regarding the importance of submitting your application early.  I've been studying hard for about a month or so, but I still feel that I have a lot of room for improvement in the Logical Reasoning sections.

So, I guess what I'm wondering is whether or not taking the LSAT in October puts those test-takers at a disadvantage in terms of submitting "early" applications.  Any insight is greatly appreciated!

When do guys think I should register for the Oct. LSAT?  Should I register for the LSDAS at the same time?  If not, when is a good time?


I would register early as soon as you can, although I don't know if registration for the October LSAT is open yet. If you will be applying that fall, you might want to register for the LSDAS early as well so you can start working on getting your letters of recommendations and transcripts processed.

Registration is open - I registered a week or two ago.

Panera Bread Company seems like it's the only place I can get a serious amount of studying done.  I'm there at least four, usually five days a week just studying.  As a far as the music there goes, most of the time, I don't even notice it.

Studying for the LSAT / Reading Comprehension
« on: March 12, 2008, 10:32:48 AM »
I know that the Reading Comprehension section is probably the hardest section to improve you score in, but I was wondering if anybody could recommend any good books or strategies that have helped them improve their score.  I just took my first dianostic test and, predictably, I bombed the Reading Comprehension section.  I'm looking to improve as much as I can, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Although I haven't taken the actual LSAT (I'm signed up for the one October 2008), I can recommend the Powerscore Logic Games Bible.  I bought both Powerscore books, and I've already been through the one pertaining to the Logic Games.  It really breaks down different (yet, effective) ways of attacking and going through the Logic Games.  Check it out!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Kaplan's LSAT Practice Test Events

Thanks!  I assumed that, at some point, they would plug their course.  I've also read that nother is comparable to old LSATs, but I'm trying to find the closest thing to a simulated test environment.

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan's LSAT Practice Test Events

Has anyone ever been to one of these?  I just signed up for one that's being held on 03/22/08, and I just wanted to hear some experiences.  Thanks!

Powerscore Logical Reasoning Bible and Powerscore Logic Games Bible.  Also buy a bunch of preptests.

I just started practicing about a month ago and bought both of these Powerscore books.  I've already gotten through the Logic Games Bible, and it was pretty thorough and helpful.

I'm in the same boat.  I work from 7:30 - 4:00, and after work I head somewhere (a Barnes and Noble, Borders, Panera, etc.) and go through my Power Score books for 2 to 3 hours.  I tried taking a practice test after work once, but I was too exhausted from the day that I decided that I should reserve the weekends to go through old LSATs.
