How to continue LSAT studying after taking every LSAT ever?

Postby Life2good893 » Mon Dec 15, 2014 12:16 am

Yes, under timed conditions. I've done every LSAT except the first prep test book released but I feel that it's outdated.

I screwed up on the Dec LSAT and blanked. Before that scoring consistently in the low 170s. So I need to take it again. How do I keep my mind in LSAT mode after taking all the tests?

Would anyone recommend a company (Kaplan, Princeton Review) that creates its own versions of the tests......

After I finished all of the tests I just started retaking them to stay fresh

I retook them from like 2007 onwards once I finished them all. You won't really remember much, especially if it was months ago.

The consensus is that you shouldn't both with third-party tests. More likely, they'll throw off your game. Just re-do old ones, but aim for 175+ every time.

I just want to drop in and say that I have never seen these and this is so cool! (I'm such a loser :( )

the Indian LSAT is meant to be SAT-tier difficulty. (i.e. significantly easier)

just take the same tests again. the taking the exam itself isnt the important part. rather reviewing the answers you provided and understanding why they are right or wrong is what is important. can easily do that with PTs youve already taken

Keep taking the recent tests, and pay no attention to your final score. I took the last 30 tests three times each, in addition to taking all of the other ones once each. I was getting 180s regularly but of course that meant nothing. If you are worried about your mental stamina, start taking 6 section tests. At this point you know it's not going to predict your score accurately, but it's just as valuable in terms of sheer drilling with the questions. You want to train your intuition so that answers become automatic.

Damn. Guess I'm an underachiever.

Take them again, then take them again after that if need be. I've taken every PT from 36 onward three times.

This should probably be in the LSAT Prep Discussion Forum, by the way.

I may not be as hard-core as some of the above respondents, but I've done my share of re-taking PTs. What I ended up doing was just retaking everything again from around PT40 on. Not surprisingly, you remember a lot of the passages, you remember where you made your marks and checks and whatnot, and you may even remember that you got a particular problem wrong. But pay no heed; if you remember that you got a particular problem wrong the last time, tell your brain the exact process it should take in order to get it right this time. Your per-section speed will naturally increase (I was doing 25-27 minute LR sections, getting about 1-3 wrong on average) so let your mind take its time on the difficult questions. I let myself take 2-3 minutes on difficult questions (under timed conditions) and told myself exactly why wrong answer choices were wrong.
