This forum has been an excellent resource so far for me in preparing for the October LSAT--I definitely have learned a lot from the various FAQs and topics here. I am looking for a little bit of advice, however, on my specific situation.
I know that taking more recent preptests is important. I am pretty happy with where I am right now though; my very first unprepared, timed LSAT was a 165, and I have improved to the point where I am averaging approximately a 173 on timed tests under simulated conditions including experimental sections.
The problem is that all of these tests consisted of samples from the first and second compilation of the "10" books in addition to the 3 tests found in the Superprep, so the newest test I have taken is the February 2000 test. For what it's worth, Games is by far my strongest section, whereas I lose anywhere from 2-5 points on LR and RC because of lack of speed/endurance (but not comprehension). This worries me a bit since the FAQ and other posts around here seem to say that games has gotten easier and RC has gotten longer, whereas LR has stayed relatively the same. Obviously, there is the comparative reading section, too.
Does anyone who has more experience with the evolution of the tests in the last 8 years or so have any advice as to whether it'd be necessary to spend the money on 1-day shipping and order the last 3 or 4 preptests (or buy the third "10" book and go through the last 5 of those over the next 5 days), or are the changes not drastic enough to really be a concern?
