Huge question on a tip for studying
« on: November 01, 2008, 04:12:11 PM »
So I want to span my LSAT study for a year and I wanted to know what would be the best approach.

Exclusively and exhaustingly studying for each aspect of the exam then moving onto the next.
For example, do all the sections of preptests on LR, review, etc. then move onto doing all the sections of preptests on LG.

Or should I mesh studying all of them in together? Like doing each preptest as a whole?

If I do the former, exclusive and exhaustive section studying, what order would you recommend me doing it in? At the moment I was planning to do LR, RC, then LG if I chose this path. What do you guys think?

Well..let's say you work on Logical Reasoning & get some strategies/methods down..does it make sense to NOT continue working on those for the sake of memory and consistency? Do you think you'll return to the section after a couple of months and be as sharp as before? If so, great.

I would suggest doing lots of research on this board. Read lots of past threads, even if they're old. After hours of reading you should be able to get a feel for how people have approached their prep, then you can use that information to formulate a method for you. Adjust when appropriate.

BTW, your order is off, do RC, LG, then LR.  ;)

Why LR last? It is half of the test and the skills on LR carry over to RC and LG nicely.

You should start your prep by working through LSAC's SuperPrep. Then you should buy all three of Powerscores LSAT Bibles and a bunch of Prep Tests and work on your weaknesses and refine your strengths.

Good luck! The LSAT is a daily struggle.

On the left top of your screen you should see SITE/Home. Click it and a search bar comes up. :)

Hi Stranger, I was just trying to be sarcatic, thus the 'wink'.

I think you should study each section on a regular basis throughout your prep.

SEARCH: yeah it is a little tricky to find. On the left hand side of the page under Site it has Home. Once you're there you'll see you can search LSD. That'll be a big help..good luck.

 :o

uhhhhhh...I would start with 'posts that can help me'

Ok, I'm an a'hole. Come on, wake up!!! You can do it!

How about...'study tips' or 'study plan'

Or...see the page numbers at the bottom of the screen..like up to 861, I think. Just go from page to page & spend a bunch of time perusing threads.

Hey, do you text message a lot? Because I have this theory...
