I plan on spending around an hour each day...Will this method be enough to improve my score up to 160's?
I've managed to get actual tests from previous years and also preptests from lsac. I plan on spending around an hour each day working on one section of a test and then review my answers and focus on the answers I got wrong. On the weekend, I would try to take the entire test. I plan on doing this from beginning of July up until the end of September, right before my LSAT on October 1, 2011.Will this method be enough to improve my score up to 160's? Even if it's low 160's I would still be very happy. I have read that the powerscore logical bible helps a lot. I have a copy of the book and I plan on reading it. What are your feedbacks and opinions about the book and how helpful it is? I would like to focus on techniques that will help me most at improving my score.Thanks for reading, hope you guys can help me out with advice, opinions.

This is a very flimsy study schedule. First, one hour a day is weaksauce. Bump that to 3 or 4 at least. (No, really. You've got 24 hours in a day like everyone else. If you're serious about going to a good law school, sacrifice something and find the time to study.) Second, you need to do more than focus on whole sections. Split everything up into categories, e.g., games by type, LR questions by type, and RC passages by type (journalistic, argumentative, multiple points of view, split passages). Each night pick a category and focus on it for several hours. Learn it backwards and forwards. Find a good prep book that uses REAL preptest questions to give you instruction on attacking each of the categories of material. Near the end of your prep, start working in whole sections and whole preptests, focusing on pacing.17 points is a tall order, and it's going to be very difficult without a solid plan of attack and LOTS of repetitive practice.
