I did maybe 10 prep tests, and a good number of individual timed sections. I also did the PowerScore LG and LR bibles. If I had to take an LSAT cold today, I think I'd probably bomb the LG section.

Well, i was going to say - you should look over old law school exams for the classes we'll be taking in the fall. (you can access them online, along with class notes for classes with some of the professors we'll have in the fall). It's hard to see how logic games directly translates into any of that stuff - a lot of just analysis and seeing how laws apply to facts. LEEWS might seem like a waste of time, but sometimes you just need to actually get into the practice of taking a test before you go "oh...yeah. i can see how X helps" - knowing how vs. knowing that. so i'm willing to listen through the rest of it... we'll see.

Also, I'd heard somewhere that this book was pretty much ready to go a long time ago, but then he ended up doing almost a full rewrite?
3 years/book seems much more reasonable than 6


You mean DWD or the next one? I refuse to look at anything Game of Thrones-related on the web until I've read the entire book. People can sometimes seriously lack circumspection with respect to spoilers.

DWD - this is why I think it took so long. Other than that one, they've been averaging about 3 years/book (and if you count that as 2 books over 6 years, that's still 3 years/book).

I really need to read DWD before school starts...afraid I won't remember what happened in the previous books though.

I'm getting dumped on at work right about now...my progress through CoK has been painfully slow. I keep reading back to refresh, and then by the time I get to new sections, I have to set it down again for a couple of days.

Glad I'm not the only one who is 0L prepping w/ these. Read Game of Thrones on a lark a few weeks ago and now I'm hooked. Books 2, 3, and 4 just came from Amazon yesterday!

Oh, I'm dumb. For some reason I thought it was some esoteric law school prep thing like LEEWS or one of these. Plus I read Clash of Kings and Storm of Swords back-to-back - I can't even remember their names, they're just "the second and third books."

Does anyone else still have the status of the Master Promissory Notes listed as "Requested" on the Bursar E-suite, despite having already submitted them? I signed and submitted them last week, but my E-suite still isn't reflecting that.

They're still listed as requested when I log into Albert, so yeah I'm in the same boat. I think it might take awhile, given that this is NYU.

LEEWS Update: I'm getting close to the halfway point and it's starting to become more useful. I took a lot of business law courses in UG and my grad program, so it wouldn't be surprising to me if my additional knowledge base (not that this will be any advantage once law school actually starts) is helping me to get more out of it than some. That said, I'm not sure this is going to prep me for exams any better than just doing normal reading, briefing, etc. during the semester.

It did, I expected it to be some preparatory thing I wasn't going to do, but when I got a snide response... I was forced to re-evaluate. :D

I'll be there on the 6th, as these people are still working on my apartment apparently. Then... I will actually read Getting to Maybe and 1L Confidential. Should be very exciting.
