Being that I'm spending my spare time erasing all the LG sections I scribbled on, I think your advice to use seperate peices of paper is great. Just remember that coming into the exam I recommend doing them on the actual page only because space management is VERY important in many questions. Remember no scrap paper is allowed and learning to be neat and clean with your diagrams goes a long way.
Basically coming into the test you need to work on exactly what you going to be exposed to that day.
Basically I was testing around 164-167 and dropped significantly. Even looking back I can't remember what exactly was the issue (the actual test is kinda like blacking out, if that makes any sense to anyone).
But I know that stress was a major part of it, my strength was LG and my 2nd section was experimental LG which I bombed hard. Then was hit with a brutal RC section so I was all flabbergasted by the time I hit the last two sections.
All I can tell you is time is HUGE on test day. I was doing well timewise before that day, and not finishing was really adding to my overall shittiness.
Otherwise, Testmasters was great. Taking a class forces the LSAT to be a daily activity, with massive amounts of homework. The tips go a long way. Any class is totally up to the instructor, I got lucky with mine. But testmasters only uses instructors who recieved over 172 on the test. That alone made me work because they show you its not that hard, just takes time and practice.
Lenin- Older exams have way harder games.
Things like circle structure (wheel), mapping, and so forth. Things that are not very common today. But if you can crack those in under 10 mins that a great start
Oh and lastly Testmaster teaches you how to "master" games, when/if this skill is down the you can finish most games in 5-6 minutes without error. I'm working on it
