Studying for the LSAT / Parallel reasoning strategy
« on: February 22, 2005, 09:08:48 PM »

Ok, I admit.... I dread parallel reasoning questions. Mostly because it takes me "forever" to complete each one. Are there any good strategies for attacking this question type? I have the LRB and have read that chapter.

Studying for the LSAT / RC Questions...
« on: February 22, 2005, 08:44:07 PM »
Not long ago, several LSDers were recommending The Economist for RC prep. Does this recommendation still stand? What do Feb. test takers think of this in light of the infamous Bach passage Iíve read so much about?

Also, how does the Nova RC book compare to The Economist?

Studying for the LSAT / Easer Games? Or LGB effect
« on: February 20, 2005, 08:16:04 AM »
Is it possible that games are not getting easier but that we are experiencing a LGB effect? Imagine if games on the recent tests were tested in an experimental section prior to availability of the LGB. As a result, many test takers do not score well. However, since the release of the LGB, which allows many to make significant AR score increases, the comparison of the difficulty as judged by the old test takers is no longer accurate. We may be experiencing the disruptive effect of the LGB on the test. There would be a disconnect between what the only testers thought was difficult and what we think it considered difficult.

This may not be the only reason for the recent ďrelatively easierĒ AR sections but could be part of the explanations. Now?

Ok. I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 10. Anyone care to guess?

Studying for the LSAT / Boston / Providence - PS Instructor Suggestions?
« on: February 16, 2005, 05:38:33 AM »
Ok. Iím taking a PS course for the June test in May/June. I need some suggestions concerning the Boston vs Providence course. I also would like some suggestions of ďgreatĒ instructors.

In terms of convince, the Providence course would work best for me. However, if I can get a better PS instructor in Boston, Iím more than willing to make the trek up to bean town.

Have you had an instructor in either city you felt was absolutely great? Ö or would recommend I avoid?


Studying for the LSAT / Feb '05 vs. Dec '04 v.s Oct '04
« on: February 13, 2005, 12:14:20 PM »
Anyone with enough knowledge about these 3 tests to rank difficulty. I'm interested in a raw score comparison. In other words, a difficult test + lenient scale = difficult test (disregard scale).

Are you studying now? What are you doing for LSAT?

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT PrepTests
« on: January 13, 2005, 09:08:40 PM »
So I have the 10 Actual, 10 More Actual and Next 10 Actual PrepTests books. I've worked backwards and I'm now using the 10 Actual test. I've noticed that the games seem "old" and different from the newer tests and the LR sections especially in PrepTest 7 and 9 seem rather like the stuff PR, Kaplan and others make up. Not like the "real" LSAT.

Are others practicing with these older tests? This is of interest because I've been doing timed tests from the 10 Actual and Next 10 Actual books (I alternate) and there is a significant difference in my score based on the book. Luckily I'm scoring higher on the newer stuff.

Studying for the LSAT / Help! What do I do?!?
« on: December 28, 2004, 02:04:29 PM »
Ok. Hereís the deal folks. Iíve studied my butt off during the last few months and worked my (self diagnostic) score up from low 160s to low 170s. I had planned to take a TM or PS course this January for the February test but Iím now having second thought.

The Jucy Details:
Iím having second thoughts about the prep course because of the improvements Iíve made (160s->170s). On the one hand, I think if I continue studying, Iíll keep improving thru Feb 14. However, I also wonder if a prep course would be a more efficient way to spend January. Perhaps an instructor will enable me to improve faster than self study? Iím bound to learn at least a few new things from someone else. No? But themÖ Iím concerned that taking the full length TM or PS course and the associated homework will leave me with little time to study!

So what do I do? Iím leaning towards self study augmented by the weekend TM/PS course.

OhÖ things are complicated by the fact that Iíve been scoring very well on the games section. And from what I understand, the games section is the section that is most improved by the prep course.
