I was wondering what people usually score on their first try.
The initial test is largely irrelevant. I would not review for it nor would I worry about your initial score. What matters is when you begin to study for the test. The first test I ever took resulted in a 145. I ended up with a 172.
Check out my post here - http://www.onlawschool.com/39/what-should-i-know-before-taking-my-first-lsat-practice-testI went from 151 to 177. I do not understand why anyone would tell you not to review your first exam. That is awful advice.Why take the exam if you can't learn from it? At the beginning stages, you should be much less worried about _how_ you do.... and much more worried about _how much_ you learn from the experience. If you don't review the exam, then you have just crushed your confidence and you have no reasonable idea WHY!scenariosolver could not be more wrong. Sad that they are selling LSAT prep materials... scary.
I have taught the LSAT for over seven years - the initial test is one jsut to give you an idea of the hell you are about to face. The purpose of the test is really to scare you into studying for it hardcore.
If you have never seen the LSAT before and you sit down cold and take it, it is really not that helpful to go through the test and figure out what you have done wrong as you have NO idea of any solution strategies at that point. Once you begin preparation then you must absolutely go through the test and understand what you have done wrong. I have taught for three of the major prep companies and I can tell you that a review is not in order for the "cold test".
