But then I never really got how or why to prepare for these standardised tests - I mean given that they're just supposed to measure your aptitude for studying a certain subject and memorising vocab for a month doesn't automatically make you a better lawyer. In retrospect I could probably have practiced some faster techniques for the logic problems rather than just stare at them for a while, but I just don't see how you can reasonably bump up reading comprehension levels with a few weeks of studying. Memorising vocab just seemed horrendously inefficient to me. Decisions I hated waiting (and actually still waiting) for - mainly because it's just annoying not being able to get started on just looking for apartments and planning my life in general for the next few years.
You think people memorize vocabulary for the LSAT?
