First LSAT Practice Test Administered
« on: October 02, 2003, 11:05:54 PM »
I have a detailed question:

I would like to know what was the first score you ever received from the test under actual conditions of the LSAT, (like a diagnostic or at a place like Kaplan unlike at home on the PC) given that you didn't really study previously (strategies and the like).

However if you have stuidies I would still like to know how you did initially, but I am mainly concerened becasue I hadn't studied beforehand, so that is what I am interested in.

Also if you would, how well you did or have been doing on the latest practice or even the LSAT itself? I didn't do so well so I am frustrated although early in the game still panic stricken a bit.  :-/

I really appreciate the feedback very much, thanks.

Don't know how much this will help you, but I have not taken any courses...... I have been "studying" for a long time, but it has never been anything very serious, and it has never involved any strategy.  I usually just practice problems from the "Master the LSAT" book.   When september rolled around I started taking practice tests from the book "10 actual, official LSAT preptests" under the proper time limits.

First score I got was a 159.  

Since then I have taken many more tests and it appears my score and the whole test procedure has improved (I am more comfortable, and I usually finish with time to spare).  Practice seems to have really helped.  Sometimes even when I am not sure why an answer is right, somehow I just know that it is going to be the answer.  

Anyway, we will see tommorrow (October 4, 2003) if it has been worthwhile.

1st - 136 (home pc)
2nd - 143 (home pc)
3rd - 152 (PR proctored practice test)

i'm not satisfied with these scores, hoping to get atleast 160. i'll probably take PR's hyperlearning for the June04 test. I like the 8 students max idea.

1st test: 158
6 mos of studying on own, actual score:164

I was happy with that improvement, but disappointed that I was also able to score 3 170s and one 171 on LSAC practice tests, yet only 164 in real life. Oh well.

FWIW, I scored much worse on Princeton Review and Kaplan designed "practice tests," anywhere from 148 to 158.

1st test: 169, but it was a Kaplan test so it might not have been accurate.

After two and a half weeks of VERY intense studying, I got scores between 172 and 178, and my actual score was 176.

By intense, I mean I went through about 28 tests from LSAC, the LSAT 180 book, and Master the LSAT.  I would do 8 sections non-stop just to build up my endurance.

The books I used are here:
