need your advice

Postby shane0515 » Thu Apr 01, 2010 9:42 pm

I was wondering if you had any advice on LSAT Prep? I'm trying to get a 165.

I've been studying since October 2009 with the powerscore bibles. In the summer I'm going to do about 30 practice tests. Hopefully, I'll be ready for the September 2010 LSAT.

How hard do you think it will be to get a 165. I'm horrible at standardized tests.

My Practice test scores right now are in the 160-163 range.

Thanks

I got 165+ and if I were in your shoes, I would consider the following:

1. Treat every PT like the real thing. Strict 35-min limits or even reduced limits, <1-min pauses b/w sections, only 1 15-min break, and so on. Fatigue can be a real deal-breaker on test day. To simulate the real thing, I practiced in a quiet section of the library where people were moving about - I wasn't sitting in my room in my PJs, I wasn't wearing earplugs, etc.

2. Review every problem you had to guess on or that you missed. Understand exactly why the credited response is the correct answer. This will pay off immensely.

Good luck and make sure you use the search function - this question has been asked many times before.
