Studying for the LSAT / Re: mechanical pencils are the way to go

Not really, i usually blacken in the answers after every full page.  The time it takes to switch your pencil then switch back takes just as much time as using a microsecond longer it might take to fill in your mark with a mechanical pencil.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: battle of pencils

mechanical wins hands down in my opinion.  Its not even a battle sort of like the germans invading poland in 1939.

You should just take it man.  I was contemplating actually maybe taking it feb with mor practice time but i don't think it will make much of a difference.

Practice is important to learn from your mistakes and I wouldnt have been able to score in the mid 170's without it on my practice tests but I dont think you can make a real significant improvement by studying for another 2 months or even 6 months.  By significant I mean like a 10-15 point jump. 

The way I see it time is money.  The sooner you get into a law school and start practicing law the better.

Good luck to everyone taking the test sat.

Studying for the LSAT / mechanical pencils are the way to go

Ok, after thorough testing and analysis I have reached the conclusion that mechanical pencils rule.

I was taking practice test with pens for about 3 months then last month I switched over to pencils to try and simulate actual test conditions.  The standard pencils suck...after about 6 aruguments or 1 game my markings would become smudged.  Ink is the best way to mark text but with the other two remaining options for the test I would go with the mechanical pencil.

It never needs to be sharpened and everytime you mark or write with using it it's just like using a sharp pencil.

I'm taking the test on sat.  I picked A just because it relates more to the conclusion of the stimlus in the first sentence. 

I know what you mean though i have gotten others wrong when I just didnt read carefully enough or lost interest.  Its aweful to prepare for but just use the techniques in the books.  Focus on ever stimulus because they usually hinge off of one word or phrase.

Whatever though man lets just take the damn test and goto law school.  This test in the long run is essentially irrelevant to whether you become a good attorney or not.

I was scoring in the low 170s just taking the test at home with nice long breaks between sections and sometimes breaks within a section especially RC. Now on full lenght with just the 10 minute break after section 3 i'm scoring in mid 160's I'll probably get a 160 or so.  I dont really mind thats in the top 80 percentile so the hell with it.  Sorry Harvard I guess I won't be giving you 50 bucks for the application ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: older tests vs. newer tests... your opinions
« on: December 01, 2004, 10:59:25 AM »
I find the newer tests easier.

The older test seemed to put more of a preference on formal logic questions.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Writing Sample Graded
« on: December 01, 2004, 10:57:50 AM »
Ok first off how can you're writing sample be graded.  Yes i'm sure they can make a determination of whether you can write and present an argument for an against whatever lame examples they give you but come on. 

I'm not even wasting time on this section.  As long as you don't really screw it up by not presenting any type of a case i'm sure you will be fine.
