164 diagnostic--LSAT prep help?

Postby jstanhope14 » Sat Jan 28, 2017 9:38 pm

Hey guys,

Although I've dabbled with some individual untimed sections, I finally got around the taking my first timed practice test, and scored 19/24 LG, 18/25 LR, 26/27 RC, 19/24 LR, for a score of 164. Any advice on how I should prep for the June test? Shooting for mid 170s. I'm leaning toward LSAT Trainer and self study with prep tests, and maybe 7Sage for LG. Ideas?

It seems like you have a pretty common diagnostic breakdown (except for the baller ass RC), so I'd just prep based off of the normal threads. Had the same diagnostic, and I jumped 10 points, so just shoot for a 180 and don't take the test until you're ready.

Use Powerscore LG Bible. I started in a similar place with LG and using their book/practice, I haven't missed an LG question in the past 12 sections I've done (all sub 30 minutes too).

As for the other stuff, like Tort said, just follow the general prep advice - find a method that works for you as far as LR goes and prep until you consistently hit mid to upper 170s on PTs.
