I studied daily for about 3 months, and would regularly hit the mid 160's in practice tests; I ended up with a 160 on the actual LSAT. I was bummed because I KNOW I can do better. The test started at 9am and it sort of threw me off. I didn't get much sleep and my mind wasn't 100% clear.

I started making my own and found reading, case briefing, outlining, & creating flash cards to be to time consuming. I purchased Bar Cards and now just make my own cards for areas not covered by Bar Cards or where I want additional practice.
I stopped briefing cases about 3 weeks into law school.
If you don't memorize the black letter law, how the hell are you gonna know what issues to spot on the exam? The first key to any of this is knowing the rule (black letter law) in the first place. You can't analyze what you can't spot.
Hmm, are you sure this is the test the professor offered? We just did the case with the chair being pulled out, and for us the test wasn't whether a reasonable person would find the act to be offensive, but instead whether a reasonable person would have known that the offensive contact would occur.
Well, I said her back becomes bruised, hence the "harm." I don't know the case. I have just heard it referenced. I'm just using it as an example.
I'm confused about your phrase "most likely." As I understand it, the child doesn't have the intent to create harmful contact, just to be funny. The reasonable person would see pulling the chair out from under someone as being offensive, which is the lesser standard to meet. It was probably a bad example.
