Re-taking in Oct....need advice
« on: June 25, 2005, 04:09:21 PM »
I need help. I did horrible, 153, almost 10 points below my average. I need to starting prepping for the next one right now....I need suggestions on books, methods anything you have to offer.

For this one all I used was the 10 Official LSATs book. I'm thankful for any info you have to offer.

Going into the lSAT, Games, but I did almost perfect on the games, abeit they were easier than normal. I'm confused, I guess all sections, I had about 10 wrong in each of the others.

Well, the Logic Games Bible and the Logical Reasoning Bible are both always solid choices. For RC, all you can really do is practice them more.

If you can afford it, Powerscore or Testmasters courses can help significantly.

i would suggest getting the logic reasoning bible from powerscore...if you're not going to take a class, you should work with it.  i didn't use it, but i was in the powerscore class and their methods on LR helped me tremendously. 

also, doing back-to-back sections of your weakest areas (like 8 reading comp passages in a row) does wonders.

good luck!

Stay away from Princeton Review...their prep book stinks.  I didn't realize this until a few days before the actual test.  Then I went and got the Superprep book from Lsac.  I found that it helped me more then anything esp. with having the offical explainations after each of the practice tests.  I wished that the "Next 10 Actual Offical..." test had explainations cuz I like to know why I got something wrong.

Alright, so I scored lower... much lower than I expected/scored on previous tests and will likely enroll in Testmasters.  Anyone know if you can take 1/2 of the course at one location and the other 1/2 at another?

testmasters and powerscore are really very similar.  the guy who founded powerscore was originally one of the 2 founding members of testmasters (with robin singh).  for whatever reason, he split off...but since they developed their techniques together, they're pretty much the same. 

and yea, testmasters is the one you mentioned, not testmasters.com
