PT dip from 169 to 164 - Cause for concern?

Postby hellojd » Fri Feb 05, 2010 4:05 pm

Hey guys,

Studying for the June LSAT. As the title suggests, my first diag, taken about 2 weeks ago was a 169. It was the first prep test from LSAC SuperPrep. The breakdown was -3 RC, -5 LG, -3 LR.

I just took another PT today (PT 19, first in the 10 More series), after going through a fair chunk of the LG bible and some of the LR bible. I realized that a 169 diag is pretty high so I was just hoping to match it, maaaybe bump it up to a 170. Instead, I got a 164: -6 RC, -6 LG, -8 LR. Down across the board...

The main difference felt like my timing. I am sure I missed 1 or 2 questions per section just because I ran out of time, which for some reason wasn't an issue on the first test.

Have any of experienced this dramatic of a drop before? What helps you guys stay consistent? Is there an acknowledged disparity of difficulty between SuperPrep and the 10 More series?

I am in a mild state of depression haha, after having grand ambitions of hitting a 175 with a couple of months to spare.

Thanks for advice / tips.

I think you just need a larger sample size to judge exactly where you stand. Scoring a 169 cold is great though, and you've still got months to work out the kinks.
