Writing the October 2010 lsat
« on: September 05, 2010, 11:28:39 PM »
I've done one untimed prep test so far. It took me three days and my score was 159. Is it realistic to be prepped and ready to score 165+ by october?

Probably not since it was untimed. When I first started prepping, I could have gotten a 170 untimed but was getting a 159 timed. See my point? Time is the hard part because of RC and LG. LR would probably be somewhat easier with a bit more time but RC and LG would be way easier being untimed. I would aim for the December test and not waste your time doing untimed tests unless you're getting accomodations where you get extra time. No pun intended.

Okay yeah I'm writing it in December. Hopefully that'll give me sufficient prep time.

Take a timed prep test and see where your weaknesses lie and work on the main ones and then refine the less significant issues. For example, for me, LG and lack of time, meaning I took too much time to complete them, was my main weakness. I then had some issues with reading comprehension time. I did pretty well on logical reasoning from the beginning, but I still felt I missed too many so I worked on that too.

Is there actually some sort of consensus on whether the October, December, and February tests are harder/ easier than one another?

As a general rule most people will agree that whatever date they they took the test will be the hardest ever... :)

On a more serious note. From what I have been able to deduce, they really do seem to make a strong effort to ensure that the standardized test really is pretty close to standard. Good luck with preparation and test.
