From seeing this thread and all the positive replies praising the performance and utility of this product, one might think adding 35 to a number from 0 to 59 was actually a hard thing to do, for people over undergraduate level. :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's been almost 6 weeks and I haven't received my watch yet. Starting to lose faith.

Thanks for this update. Was thinking of buying the watch, but am leaning otherwise after your bad experience.

I am going to remove the hands on an old watch with a chronograph (they get in the way of chrono's little dial). Pushing is still more convenient than rewinding.

Stellar invention, nevertheless :)

I would recommend not using a watch. Supposed you look at your watch fifteen times per section for about 2 seconds per look. Not to mention the fact that it would force you to lose concentration each time, pardon the pun. If you were to lose ~2 minutes in a section thinking about the time, you are put at a fairly large disadvantage. During those ~2 minutes you would be better off answering questions that might stump you, or look back at questions you were unsure about.

I don't think these are safe assumptions. During the first 30 minutes of a section, I look at my watch maybe 3-4 times, and it's more like .5 seconds, not 2 seconds. And there's no loss of concentration, since it's between questions, not within questions. The last 5 minutes of a section is when the watch is really helpful, knowing you have exactly 30 seconds to do the last question is great.

Which is why you get a 5 minutes warning. I noticed it distracted me during prep, so I didn't wear it to the exam. The way I see it, any time not spent focused on a particular question is time wasted.

To the OP's credit, I have received a response and they are working on a quick solution.

I appear to be the victim of bad luck, moreso than bad business practices.

Hmmm I ordered mine on the 12th of July before seeing the posting on her website about July and August being a slow processing time. I've sent two emails and have yet to hear a response.

When you place an order there's no confirmation, just a paypal receipt.

I think the answer to this depends entirely on the individual. I'm considering buying this watch, but I'm afraid that I'm going to be one of those individuals who just checks his watch after every question. Timing isn't really an issue with me, so I think this would do me more harm than good. However, I can see how this watch would be useful to the disciplined mind.

How long does it take usually for the watch to arrive? 2-3 weeks? More/less?

I typed in "LSAT Watch" on Ebay and I got this:

Think Ebay's trying to tell me something with that first one? :| :| :|

If you can't have the self control to not keep looking at your watch, how can you expect to have the self control to remain cool under pressure?

Not wearing a watch is just plain stupid. Prepping for the LSAT is not only taking practice tests, and learning approaches... it's training yourself psychologically.

FYI: I just got to Florida after a 28 hour drive yay!
I'm the person who makes the watches and wanted you to know my fiancé is doing the moving so I can make watches. I have orientation Monday but Tuesday & Wednesday are for making watches. Should be caught up soon but then I'm getting married on august 28th so any orders that come in that week will be about two weeks to get.

Please note I now use Casio watches as the watch base and the feedback is excellent. (I had some watch supplier issues in the past! Glad to be past that!)

ok time to go unload the 22 foot penske!!!!!

Because having self control over the former doesn't necessitate the latter, or vice versa.

Theoretically, all a watch tells you is how fast/slow you are performing. Experience alone should tell you this anyway. Thus, looking at a watch only affirms that your feelings are accurate or inaccurate. If you find that you have to ration your time, knowing exactly how much time is left isn't necessarily helpful.

Hi everyone,
I'm the one that sells these watches. Just wanted to let you know that effective Sunday when I return from Indy a freshly-married woman, all watches will begin shipping out within two business days of the order date again. Thanks so much for your well-wishes and patience during this time, I appreciated it so much. Its great to be all moved in, (almost) married, and in law school!

Off I go to get married!
