LSAT jump increase within a month

Postby jkaur86 » Tue Aug 31, 2010 12:11 am

I scored a 146 on my initial practice test and started getting in the low 150's but Im taking the Oct LSAT next month and was wondering whether it's realistic to expect a 10-15 point increase within a month? I work full-time so I am usually able to study for 2-3 hours on a weekday and about 8 hours on the weekends. Also, do you think it's efficient to hire a private tutor or to study on your own. My sister is taking a Kaplan class right now so I have access to all of her review books including PT's. I'm nervous about the time constraint. Thanks guys!

Get the LR and LG bibles from power score.

If your worst section is games, then its possible. If not, its going to be really hard.

Then definitely get the bibles. Totally worth it.

This.

LG moreso than LR. Games responds more to prep than any other section, and the PS bible is the gold standard.

Get the bibles, but to really answer your question, no it's probably not realistic for another 10-15 point jump in the next month. You may consider holding off till the december test.

+1

If I were you I wouldn't jump into a score that doesn't fully show what I'm capable of. It's better to lose a couple more months than to rush into the October test with inadequate preparation.

Take 20 practice tests before the last day you can register for whatever test you want to take.
