My LSAT study plan

Postby 10second » Mon May 10, 2010 6:20 pm

I have started studying for the LSAT. I plan on taking the October test. I am putting together a study plan and was hoping to get some input on it.

At the moment I have the 3 Powerscore Bibles and the "Traciela grouped by game/question type" books. I also have the "Next 10 Actual, Official LSAT Prep Tests" book en route as I type. My plan is study one bible book at a time and then after I am done with the book, I will do the "Traciela grouped by game/question type" book. When I am done with the three bible books, I will do the prep tests from the "Next 10 Actual, Official LSAT Prep Tests". I plan on having this done before the start of my July 12th Testmasters course. I would also like to do as many prep tests as I can before the actual LSAT and was wondering what the best source is for the most recent prep tests? I have 3 different periods this summer where I will have between 17 and 22 days off. So I have plenty of time and so far I have been dedicating about 4-6 hours a day on studying and I seem to be picking the stuff up OK. If anyone has advice or criticism, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

amazon has a deal where the most recent exams are 4 for the price of 3. works out to $6/exam instead of $8/exam

yes, the amazon.com 4 for the price of 3 deal is great! but seeing as you are going to take testmasters, i would assume they would provide all the most recent preptests in their course materials. i think you should check with them first.

I am have been doing the exact same thing for a 1.5 months and I've just finished the Logic Game Bible and the "grouped by type" book for the games. Let me give you some pointers.

Firstly, and ironically, the grouping of games in the "grouped by types" book is inaccurate. Use the grouping in the back of your LG Bible...I've made it table that includes the page number in the groups book....I hope this helps.

PrepTest, Game #, Type, Page in Grouped, Q #'s
1 1 Circular Linearity 30 1-7
8 2 Circular Linearity 99 6-12
3 4 Grouping 71 20-24
4 2 Grouping 72 7-11
5 2 Grouping 56 7-11
5 3 Grouping 57 12-17
6 1 Grouping 73 1-6
7 3 Grouping 62 13-18
8 4 Grouping 74 18-24
9 1 Grouping 75 1-7
9 2 Grouping 58 8-13
11 1 Grouping 76 1-6
11 3 Grouping 59 12-19
12 2 Grouping 63 7-11
12 3 Grouping 77 12-17
13 1 Grouping 64 1-6
14 1 Grouping 78 1-6
14 3 Grouping 79 13-18
15 4 Grouping 65 20-24
16 1 Grouping 66 1-6
17 2 Grouping 80 6-12
18 1 Grouping 81 1-6
18 4 Grouping 113 20-24
19 3 Grouping 67 13-19
19 4 Grouping 68 20-24
20 2 Grouping 60 6-12
10 4 Grouping/Linear Combo 89 19-24
13 3 Grouping/Linear Combo 47 12-17
20 4 Grouping/Linear Combo 91 19-24
1 2 Linear 40 8-13

14 4 Linear 48 19-24
15 1 Linear 26 1-6
15 3 Linear 36 14-19
16 2 Linear 103 7-12
16 3 Linear 49 13-18
17 1 Linear 27 1-5
17 3 Linear 50 13-17
17 4 Linear 90 18-24
18 2 Linear 37 7-13
19 1 Linear 28 1-7

13 4 Pattern 111 18-24
16 4 Pattern 112 19-24
20 3 Pattern 114 13-18
2 3 Pure Numerical Distribution 70 13-17
1 3 Pure Sequencing 14 14-18
2 1 Pure Sequencing 15 1-5
4 1 Pure Sequencing 17 1-6
6 2 Pure Sequencing 18 7-12
10 1 Pure Sequencing 22 1-5

Also, a few times in the LG bible it says something like, "at this point you should re-do the whole chapter to solidify your understanding." I found this tidbit to be very helpful. But it is hard to do if you have already written in your book. Therefore, I recommend making one or two photocopies of all the games and exercises in a given chapter before you begin, that way you can re-do the chapter without the distraction of your own, scribbled notes.

Also, you may not be able to implement this last piece of advice, but I have access to a unlimited free copies. So I made copies of every single logic game in the traciela grouped by type book, so that I could re-work the games, in the space provided, without having to erase pencil marks. Only working on photocopied pages and never writing in my books has helped me tremendously because I can simply re-work a game or chapter or whatever, whenever I need to.

I hope this helps.
