Studying for the LSAT / LR Question Difficulty Ranking
« on: August 12, 2007, 07:10:14 PM »
Is there a website or something that tells you the difficulty of a particular question from 1-5 sort of similar to the 3 provided by Official LSAT superprep or are those the only ones?

I ask because I want to get familiar with what a 5 (most difficult) question looks like to avoid falling into traps that most likely won't be there on a 1 or 2 question type.

I can tell what types of questions seem harder b/c they take me longer to do and there are usually 2 or even more answer choices that both seem right. However, they could be easy questions that I simply am bad at.

There's a book by Nova that a lot of people recommend.  PowerScore is releasing a Bible for Reading Comprehension but not until sometime next year, I believe.  Other than that, read the ENTIRE passages over again and go over each question, untimed, explaining to yourself what they are asking and why each answer is wrong/right.  Familiarity is key.

Heard that the Nova book pretty much just copies everything the Official LSAT superprep book says on RC. Can anyone confirm this? I am going to buy superprep for the 3 tests and the LSAC official ranking of questions (to know whats a 5 type question and what are 1 type) so I'd rather not have to buy 2 books.

I wont be taking the Oct. Lsat but I could sign up for a TM course that starts next week to prepare for the Oct. Lsat.

Should I wait and sign up for the Dec course if I will probably be taking the Dec Lsat?

Or should I sign up for this later course (which has 3-4 class sessions each week) and continue practicing till Dec?

I'm sure they transfer around from CA to NY from semester to semester. Have you had him before?

The credits wont transfer to my undergrad though because they wont take classes taken at a HS. Does it still count though?

Should I send transcript from University of Albany to LSAD which gave me credit for classes taken at a high school and not at the college itself? Do you think they'll give me credit since I got A's for 2 classes taken.

Well if the hardest ones and the easiest ones are worth the same points, why run the risk of rushing the easiest ones and getting them wrong?

I should probably choose a better word but what I meant was that you shouldn't try to do a lot of work the day before because it could hurt your brain and if you wake up with a headache that would be horrible.

I guess it really depends on what gets you up and focused during test day. Some people listen to music, some sweep up the cobwebs of sleep with some practice. I think the week before the test is very crucial in that if you piss away that week your score might suffer. But the day before I think you should relax because cramming really hurts more than it helps, unless of course you cram for every test and you always do well.
