What would you do?

Postby washin34 » Sun Apr 11, 2010 3:21 pm

I've been studying for 4 weeks and I can do some games in 8:35 with -2 or less, but not all. I average -2 or less on all games I attempt. Some games still take 20 minutes, but very few. Those that do, range in type and category. Each time I review my incorrect answers, I usually am able to find my mistakes somewhat quickly. Should I continue forward and start on RC and LR? I want to take the June test and my goal score is 160.

I was in a similar situation but with LR. I was scoring nearly perfect on games, so I didn't bother pushing forward with it but for LR I did practice sections of LR all the time starting out missing about 15 in each section to missing no more than 4/5. Don't forget about the sections you are doing great on and focus only on the one section you are having problems with, but I definitely recommend you keep focusing on the section you're finding difficult.

For me the breakdown was essentially this:

For every game practice section I did probably 4/5 practice sections for LR/RC each and reviewed them. Helped tremendously, but everyone has their own studying techniques so you'll have to find what works for you.

Keep practicing on games, but don't let that keep you from LR and RC. It's hard to know what's making you sporadically slow, but it sounds like something that will get better with continued practice and review.

I agree with this. Is there a time constraint that will keep you from studying more than one section of the LSAT?

Logic Games will come with a lot of hard work and practice, but you don't want to leave LR and RC to study only a few weeks.

LR, you'll need more time on to review and RC is prolly hardest to learn, IMO, but you'll want to do due diligence with getting a feel for the LSAT's "ways".

No there is no time constraint.I was told to focus on one section at a time when studying. I don't think I will have a problem studying both or all three at one time.
