Studying for the LSAT / A Great S-N Question - Part Deux

D.A.R.E. / A.J,
What's the test number for this LR question?

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT PrepTests
« on: January 13, 2005, 11:08:40 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, 04:04:29 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.

Studying for the LSAT / LR / RC Improvement
« on: December 26, 2004, 01:09:06 PM »
to those who took a TM or PowerScore 80 hr course... Did you make significant improvement in you RC or LR score? I think many/most agree that the review courses can improve AR/games but my interest is LR and RC.

Studying for the LSAT / Re-applying..
« on: December 24, 2004, 08:48:12 AM »
Do the top tier schools put applicants who re-apply in a second year in a *special* pile? Is it a disadvantage to apply in years 2 with new/improved stats to school A after a rejection in year 1?

I'm curious. Have not been rejected "yet" but would like some info.  Thanks.

So who's America's finest news source? I've been agitating about my fair and balance coverage so I'm considering news from people I know I can trust.

Are there advantages to taking the June '05 LSAT vs. Feb '05? Excluding the extra study time.

Studying for the LSAT / Dec '04 LSAT Difficulty

I think there are too many people running around saying "Wow. I just aced the LSAT. Watch me get at least 174 if not 180". How many of you really believe this?

Studying for the LSAT / Remembering answers
« on: December 02, 2004, 09:44:48 PM »
I find that once I do a preptest, even if I wait for two weeks and try to redo the test, I remember many of the answers. Oh well..

Studying for the LSAT / Writing Sample
« on: November 28, 2004, 08:32:50 AM »
So. Is anyone out there studying/reviewing for the LSAT Writing Sample or is it just me? I'd like to know if I'm wasting my time. Especially if colleges tend to disregard it. I've heard it said (written?) that because the application package includes the personal statement, the colleges tend not to value the writing sample too much. True? Agree? Maybe?
