Myself: In the words of nina simone..."I'm feelin good"

I've taken somewhere in the range of 8-10 PT's

Studying a tremendous amount of hours.

Roughest section is currently AR mainly because I have not read the LRB(will try and knock that out in the next 2-3 days)

I am nervous, but confident that I have done about all I can do to prepare given my ability.

Probably 25 PTs

2 hours a day

Earlier my roughest section had been AR, but getting it down to 0- minus 4. I am still nervous that I could hit a tough AR game and miss 6, but what else can you do besides study and try your best?

LR/RC tied, inconsistent.

Cautiously optimistic... After enough PTs one gets a feel for the damn thing and the biggest obstacle becomes fate/test day jitters.

2 full tests a week plus 2 LG sections and extensive reviewing.

Taken 23 PTs so far, should top 30 before test day. (The LSAT, it seems, is my girlfriend :? )

Logic games - Sometimes I get impatient and misread simple rules/miss obvious inferences (especially when it's the 4th or 5th section).

Whoa - I'm in Asia (Japan), where they're administering it on June 26th. I didn't realize it was so much earlier everywhere else.

Good luck y'all

How are you feeling?
Nervous but increasingly more confident.

What is your study schedule like?
One full PT a day under timed test conditions with a simulated experimental section. A couple of random LGs every day because my timing on those is so inconsistent. I have done some private tutoring to try and eek out those couple of extra points.

How many practice tests have you taken or do you plan to take?
I have probably taken about 15 so far, I will be taking one every day until the day before the actual test, so that will bring me to what, 30ish or so.

What is your roughest section and why?
LG by far. I can get to -0 on LG...untimed. But my brain has this desire to map out every hypo and waste so much time on a single question until I get it right that I am either leaving an entire game unanswered or having to guess in order to make time. I am just not that confident juggling all of the inferences and with spatial reasoning in general. But this is slowly getting better. I was -5 today on LG having answered all the questions.
