Last Test before PT 60?

Postby Confused&Pissed » Fri May 28, 2010 7:55 am

When are you taking your last PT? I am thinking the Friday before the exam, is this cutting it too close? It seems like the more days I have off, the harder it is to get into the swing of things. Also, is your last test PT59?

I'm taking my last PT (PT 58) the friday before the real deal on Monday. I'm treating it just like test day. I'm going to add a 5th section, and I'm starting it at noon. I'll also be taking it in the building where I'll be taking the real test. Saturday, I'm going to do a timed RC and LR section, Sunday I'll do a timed LR section, Monday morning I'll do like 4 LR problems as a warm up.

I'm taking pt 59 today with a big group administration at my test center through Kaplan. I never took a course or anything, but for a small fee chose to participate in Kaplan's "LSAT Experience." Wish me luck.

Oh and I'm taking PT's 56, 57, and 58 next week.

Yeah, I'm 59 also on Friday, some extremely light review Saturday and then catching a movie or something Sunday to unwind.

I've already hit my plateau so friday seems to be the consensus and I agree. Timed test, would love to do it at the center I will be writing the test but I live in Canada and am writing in Buffalo so thats impossible. Sat and Sun going to just do some RC and LR and maybe a game or 2. Sunday not much, going to relax. Monday Going to do 9 LR questions, one of each type, 1 game (hybrid) and 2 RC passages with 1 being comparative.

Oh yes, this reminds me, I have saved a few LG games, a few LR q's and a RC passage for morning of test day to do a few hours before to get my mind thinking the way it should be for the lsat - plus since they are problems I enjoyed and did well with it should boost my confidence.

Thanks guys, I'm excited but nervous. I'm checking into a hotel near my testing site on Sunday night. I hope I am able to sleep in an unfamiliar place. Any plans for after the test?

Plans for after, I don't drink but I am going to LA on the 9th-11th then driving with my brother to vegas for a few days (turned 21 may 23rd). Going to gamble and have some fun staying at the MGM Grand 8)

Also when I get back to Canada, going to call a couple of my buddies, roll a massive joint and smoke away my stress. I smoked up last month and tried to do a PT the day after, did not go well could only get through the first section lol but I'm 100% now definately looking forward to being done have a 15 month vacation before law school

I figured, I took a look a the curve for the test, something like 81/101 was a 165. If you dont mind me asking what was so hard about it?

Whoa: that curve is absurd.

Before: Last PT on Friday. A few games untimed over the weekend. Catch up on some video games. Watch a few movies. Work.

After: Get fucking drunk. I already went to the liquor store. A 1.75 of Crown Royal is waiting for me.

I plan on taking my last PT Memorial Day, they doing a few sections throughout the week and nothing Sunday. Working from 6am-4pm and taking tests is starting to burn me out and that is the LAST way I want to feel test day. :roll:

I'd doing 5 PT's next week (1/day), so the last one on the Friday before the test. I'll do a few LG sections from older tests on the Saturday before and take Sunday off. Maybe a few more LG problems for warm up morning of.

And after the test, a cold six pack of shiner bach...

No kidding. I just bombed it. If it weren't for being in the flat land of Indiana I would throw myself off a cliff. I was pting in the high 150's and landed a 147. I hate myself.

Same here. I'm planning on figuring out the route to take, the building/room my test is in, and where the nearest starbucks is. What is your gameplan?

Edit: And btw, in response to your title. It ain't no PT anymore gentlemen. This is the real deal!

PT 59 on Saturday before the test. I work on Friday. I'm going to do everything I will do the day of the test, including eating a protein-filled lunch, drinking a Red Bull, doing some practice problems, and starting the exam at 1:30pm.

I changed my mind, not doing preptest 59 as my last before the exam. If it is as difficult as everyone is saying it is then I wouldn't want to have a bad result as the one most fresh on my mind when I walk into the real thing. Probably will switch 58 and 59 around so I can study my mistakes from 59 before I write the last one

59, 58, 56 MWF of next week respectively. I live over an hour from my testing site, and have a little one at home, so I'm checking into a posh hotel for the night. The last time I took the LSAT I took it after literally getting zero el-sleepo. I hope to come home after the test and twirl in circles with the freedom of knowing I have absolutely nothing to do.

On a side note: My reading comp has gone from -4 to like -6 and I'm super pissed. I think I am stressing about it and making myself wig out. Luckily my LR and LG have been near perfect. I wanna seriously shoot somebody.

I just hope I get my 170 so I get to burn all of my LSAT prep materials and never ever think about this ridiculous test again :twisted:

Taking 59 on Saturday, taking June 2007 on Sunday. I need the prep everyday or else I'd lose focus. I don't think I'm going to do all of June07 though, just the LR and games.

You couldn't pay me not to PT on Sunday. Four months of studying has shown me that only bad things can happen when I take even short breaks...

That said, I'm probably going to do about a 1/5th of a test (A little LG, LR, and an RC passage) Monday morning...

Maybe you should consider not even taking the night before off. PT the night before, then wake up early and take a full PT again. Go take the LSAT, and what the hell, PT after too!
