Studying for the LSAT / Re: reading comprehension
« on: August 29, 2005, 10:29:22 PM »
What we all need is a very long overdue Powerscore Reading Comp Bible.  Why won't they write one!?  With the reading comp sections getting harder and being worth more on the LSAT, the need for one is increasing. 

I guess it's because there isn't really a "correct" way of reading...It all varies with people.
I think the only way to increase your score is to just go through all the RC passages as much as one can.  I'm still so inconsistent with my RC but i think that's the only way to improve.

If you need help with this, then perhaps you should reassess whether you should even be taking the LSAT.

believe it or not, a lot of people actually do end up misbubbling on the real LSAT.
I suggest that if you can't give a proper advice, don't even bother replying.  Trolls like you are just annoying.

Thanks for the help guys.  However, I can't use this approach for LR because I do the questions in waves, and not in order.  I think this is what causes me to misbubble once in awhile, but I want to stick to this strategy since it's been really effective for me.
Somehow I have to find a balanace and not mess up on the real LSAT.

I just went through the feb 1996 preptest I took and I noticed I misbubbled one of the LG which could've gotten me up a point from 157 to 158.  This seems to occur frequently for me, especially on a LR section where I hit the questions in waves and not in order.  Does this happen to others as well?  This is kind of a concern since 157 and 158 does actually make a difference.  Is there any specific remedy?  Thanks.

Yeah I got the same as you on RC, but got killed again on LR, 28/51. I think I'm going to go over these questions and look through the Logical Reasoning Bible and see what I'm doing wrong. If I could only improve back to what I was doing before on LR, 36-37, I'd be in the 160s right now...

I hear ya brother.  I'm pretty inconsistent right now as well, doing as good as 21/23 on LG and doing as bad as 15 on another.  I guess the thing we both need to do is to go through as much as LSAT material as we can before October 1.  I really think that the inconsistency comes from lack of doing all the materials, and I'm sure that you'll find that consistency again when you do more of the materials.  I started ta 8/27 on RC to getting about 18/27 on RC.  Obviously it's still not where it should be, but I think i've improved drastically just because I've done so many of them thanks to all those TM hw.  I hope I can improve or maintain consistency for my LR and LG as well.  Anyways, Good luck bro. ;)

The Feb 96' was the first diagnostic I ever took and I scored a 149.  I got butchered by all the sections.  Had the opportunity to review the test with my friend this past weekend and had no problems with any of the games.  But it's a difficult games section.

Yeah it's been awhile since I've seen a section where there wasn't really any easy games.  They all seemed either very hard or very hard to diagram.  Oh well, I'm gonna go over them in about 30min to see what I've missed. ???

Well I decided to take one timed today instead of untimed like I was planning to and scored a 157. I was thinking of just doing one untimed on Wednesday and seeing how it turned out. A couple of answers really got to me as either I didn't read the argument or passage correctly or I was down to 2 answers and picked the wrong one. At least I got 21/24 on the games so I'm consistent there...

Yeah I received a 157 on today's exam as well.  I got 38/50 LR, 18/27 on RC and 15/24(!!) on LG.  I totally bombed LG which I normally get 3 games completely right.  It was pretty brutal but I guess I just need to keep studying.

P.S. You're scores are like identical to mine so far in terms of progress.  Hopefully we can still score respectably...4more weeks left. :-[

The third game from February 1996 was tricky, particularly the last two questions.

didn't u find the RC hard as well? I didn't find this RC any easier than the 2000s RC did you?
As well I couldn't finish LG...I got stomped on the third game, so i couldn't get to the fourth one.  I gotta figure out a way to do all 4 games...

I took one of the TM's diagnostic today on my own (february 1996) and I scored 157.  I'm pretty disappointed but I felt I did a lot worse when I took it.  I did it under strict time condition and took break after two sections.  I can't believe this had such a brutal curve (160 being 77 correct answers) since I did not find this exam easy, especially the LR and LG.

Pretty disappointed but my goal is to secure 158 so I guess I just need to suck up and stick to all the lessons. :-\

I just took a test(June 1997) and ended up with a 155 after improving with 159 and 162 on my last two. Quite frustrating, I got slaughtered on the LR with 28/51. There's still 5 weeks until the test so hopefully I can get this all figured out...

LSAT is a real b**tch ain't it?
They tease you in to thinking you've improved, to only crush you on the next one.  It happens to everybody and hopefully all of us can gain soem consistency in 4weeks.(yes we only have 4weeks left!!!)
I'm planning to write one preptest on monday and if I don't score around 156-160 I'm seriously going to write a suicide note.
I think the best thing is to always do the preptest early in the morning, like the time you would normally write the actual preptest.  Only then do you really know if you're improving or not.  A lot of it has to do with fatigue and conditioning anyways.  Good luck.
