Hey 610man,
I am going to take the June test as well. I think that you should aim for as much exposure to LSAT questions as possible. Yet, you want to make sure that you understand why you answered a specific question wrong or right. One could do all available PTs, but without taking the time to analyze why one had the right or wrong answer, improvement will be minimal. I, for example, made the mistake of wanting to take all the logic games that I had. After going over ten tests, I didnít see any improvement. I realized that going back and doing a number of games multiple times (Test 27: reptile game, 31: music store game, 40: airline game, etc.) to get an understanding of how the games work, was much more effective.

Julie, yeah real practice tests, old ones, and kitz, yeah thats what I have been doing working on some problems and taking pt's and looking at what I am missing.  I am getting close I know I have the ability to get into the 160's, I have gotten a 161, stuck in the mid 150's, but because the games.  I am working to get better and hoping to close that gap in the next 2 weeks.
