7sage suggests cutting them out and reviewing them every so often, but I've heard of others typing them out in word documents. Would appreciate the reply!
Write out the answer to the following 4 questions about anything you answer incorrectly (or get a lucky guess on):
1) Why is the right answer right?
2) Why is the wrong answer wrong?
3) What about the wrong answer made me think it was right?
4) What about the right answer made me think it was wrong?
If you can phrase the last 2 as a flaw in your own reasoning, bonus points.
Answering these questions will help you both understand the logic and how LSAC is tricking you (into eliminating correct answers and picking wrong ones).
When you're doing PTs, retake the questions you got wrong (or had down to 2 and guessed) the next day without checking the answers for those individual questions (so score a PT, write down the list of questions you got wrong, and use that to retake the next day). Concentrate more on things you got wrong both days, but review all of them as above.
I'd probably also go back to early PTs in your extra study time (time you don't have earmarked for something else) in the weeks leading up to your exam. Anything you get right this time will be a confidence boost; anything you get wrong you should concentrate on since it's something that hasn't improved since your early PTs.
