Ok i'm sure theres has to be others in my same situation on this.

 Every dam diag i've taken, i've compared the answers i marked on my test with the score report and there has always been 1-3 errors. Is this really me miss-bubbling? No way...could it?? or is it maybe from TM's end? This 1-3 question difference can have some substantial effects on scoring. The only way to know for sure is for TM to provide us with our answer sheet, either the original or a copy. I emailed them about this so i'll let you guys know. Its probably just miss-bubbling, but I want to know for sure. Anyone else with me on this??

This is a great question.  I honestly believe that TM does make random mistakes..
This happened to me on the 2nd and third test, and i honestly don't think i could have misbubbled that much.  On the third one, i can confidently say that TM made an error because one of the lr was supposed to have 26 questions but TM stated that there were 25 questions. 
I wouldn't worry about this so much, just because it's something we can't control.  Just make sure you circle extra carefully on the real thing.

I just self-scored my diagnostic #4, and I received a raw score of 79!!
that's the best I've done even when taking the tough scale in to consideration!!  I'm so happy because I rarely broke 160 up until now and was just praying for 157-158 range!!
I always do the same on the RC, whether it's older version or newer one, scoring around 18 (just completing 3/4, guessing on the scientific passage), and then went on to score 18/25 on the first LR, 22/26 second LR, and 21/22 on the LG!

I just hope I repeat this on the real thing next saturday! ;D

Studying for the LSAT / Does this ever happen to you in RC?
« on: September 22, 2005, 05:01:18 PM »
I've just timed myself for the RC section from TM supplemental material, and I noticed that one of the passage was extremely tough.  When I was going through them I felt like I totally failed this portion of the RC, but ended up getting 6/7.  At the same time, there are events where I feel like I totally understood the passage and the question and end up missing majority of the questions.

I seriously hope this doesn't happen on the real thing. :-\

I just finished the February 1999 exam and got a 152. I have been scoring consistently in the 156-158 area. This is a tremendous blow to me. I am taking the test next sat and need a 157. I missed 15 games. OUCH!!

Games were very tough on that preptest.  However, I noticed that the RC was fairly easy and that LR was about the same as usual if not abit easier.

Good soil is a prerequisite of good farming.

In a MUST BE TRUE question, can I infer this as GF---> GS??

Thanks in advance.

The heights by great men reached and kept / Were not attained by sudden flight, / But they, while their companions slept, / Were toiling upward in the night.

--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Read this quote everyday and watch Rocky and Hoosiers back to back on LSAT eve.

On the morning of the test, drink a few red bulls, do some shadow boxing, then cruise into the test center parking lot blaring "Eye of the Tiger." You'll be ready to kick some A$$.


This is such a great quote.  Thanks. ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: *during* the LSAT: how NOT to freak out

Whoever suggested yoga is on to something. Although I didn't take it up intentionally as a way of calming during during the LSAT, I did happen to start practicing Bikram (hot) yoga a month or so before the test.  I think the meditation benefits that you get during the class certainly seep into the rest of the parts of your life. Plus, it's an amazing workout.

I've suffered from anxiety attacks ( at random times in my life, not constantly) since high school and I was really worried that I would have one during the test. Deep breathing--sounds cheesy, like Jack Handy advice, but it really works wonders. Oh, and I don't think the idea of a talking to a therapist is far-fetched either, you could only benefit from it.

Good luck.

Hey brooklyn, how quickly did the proctor move on to the next section?  Do they atleast give us 30seconds or so to reset our timer?  That's my biggest concern.
As well, how long is the whole LSAT in total? 5 hours?  Was the test condition any different from how powerscore/Testmaster proctor?  Thanks.
