I was just drawing up a timetable today, and I realise both the lsat blog and pithpikes guide put very little time into RC. I bought both the RC bible and traciela grouped by passage type book,how much time should I plan on completing both of them?
Also,is it better to study section by section, or study all three(LG LR RC) simutaneously over 4 months?
I am planning on studying section by section.. that way I can fully focus on each section and not worry about the rules/ tendencies of other sections.... For me, I struggle the most with LG- and it seems that this section is easier to learn, as you have to follow rules and the games have simillar structures trhoughout the lsats prep tests.. There are 2 LR sections ( half your score) so spending a lot of time on this section will have abig impact on your test results... Being as there are 13 question types, and ways to attack each question, I am focusing on this section after the games, so I can have it fresh in my mind on test day.... RC is the hardest to improve your score
FOr me, from august to october I will be re-viewing each section to keep it fresh in my mind, and slowly practicing on more than one section to increase my mental staminia-( Do 1 section, then 2 sections and so on) I think it would be wise to get the strategy down first, then work on speed... but maybe others will say differently. Good luck! ( IF you want to work on reading comp- read a lot of informative books/ articles and try to figure out the main point, stance, and id important features of the aritcle- you could, i suppose do this when you are taking a break from lg and lr ..... GOOD LUCK and dont worry- you can always re take if you get stuck... plus with all of the time, if you need to tkae a day or 2 off, go a head and do it
