To those of you getting crazy score fluctuations -- have you thought of whether it's because you've started practicing on mornings?
After getting a ridiculous -6 wrong on one LR section a few days ago (I think it was June 05), I was ready to throw it down and burn the damn thing to all hell. But I took back to back LR sections (Dec 05) last night before bed), and score: -0.
For me I think I've figured it out...I am not used to using my brain in the morning, let alone using it for high-level logic LSAT stuff. I think it partially explains the crazy scores -- all my preptests up to this point had been done after work (at night), all my studying had been after work (at night), and my preptests started going down after I started doing them at 8 am in the morning. It also probably explains why my first LR section is almost always lower than the second (and that -6 LR was my first section of the test/day). (And throughout college I'd never had a class earlier than 9:30, let alone 8. Further corroboration?)
Maybe you guys getting crazy scores should consider the time difference as well...
So now I guess I have a new problem -- how the f*&$ do I solve this? I'm thinking of waking up at 4:30/5 test day, coffeeing myself up, exercising, doing a section/logic game before heading out to the test so hopefully my head's up by the time I get there. Any suggestions?
