Preptest advice for someone who took them all

Postby nycparalegal » Wed Jun 09, 2010 2:17 pm

So, I'm cancelling my June score and re-taking in October. I have taken every single LSAT preptest. I was thinking of re-ordering the last 15 and doing one every week until October. Anyone have any better ideas of how I can spend my time?

A mixture of things, but let's just say I knew that it was not my best effort.

Here's how I got them:

PTs 2, 4, and 5 are in TriplePrep 1 (out-of-print - cheap in the used-and-new section on Amazon)
PTs 3, 6, and 7 are in TriplePrep 2 (out-of-print - cheap in the used-and-new section on Amazon)
PTs 1 and 8 are in the Kaplan Endurance coursebook (not sold retail, but cheap in the used-and-new section on Amazon)

PT17 is the only one from 1-20 that's pretty difficult to get as a complete exam in book form.

Informative as always, thanks a lot. Now just give me some advice on coping for the next 19 days!

My pleasure.

Take up a hobby like model trains or scrapbooking (kidding).

Beat the 2-level Pacman game on Google without losing any lives at http://www.google.com/pacman

Catch up on all the current events you missed out on while studying.

Catch up on TV shows.

Catch up with friends.

Exercise. I read the book "Born to Run" in March and it inspired me to take up long-distance running and begin training for a marathon. It also really boosts your mood to get those endorphins flowing. It's very rewarding since you improve your ability to run long distances remarkably quickly.

I actually got it from a friend of mine. He got every single preptest and just gave them to me because he decided against law school.

And then cancel again bc you did no prep for this test

One method mentioned in a past thread is to mix and match sections from different PrepTests. I'm supposing it helps test-sets from becoming too stale or too familiar.
