On Track for the October LSAT -- 68 PT's down, Ready for Oct

Postby Knock » Tue Aug 17, 2010 5:52 pm

Alright guys, I officially got the ball rolling on an October retake today. I'm still not 100% certain i'm going to take the test, but I figured i'll start studying, and go from there.

Studying for my Oct. Retake:
J'07 -- 08/10/10 --- -0 LG -0 LR -1 LR -1 RC ------- 98/178 ----- 4 sections timed, just to see where I was at
44 -- 09/01/10 ---- -2 RC -1 LR -3 LG -0 LR ------- 94/174 ----- 5 sections timed
45 -- 09/04/10 ---- -0 LR -4 RC -0 LG -2 LR ------- 93/176 ----- 5 sections timed
46 -- 09/06/10 ---- -1 RC -1 LR -0 LR -0 LG ------- 97/179 ----- 5 sections timed
43 -- 09/08/10 ---- -1 RC -0 LR -0 LR -1 LG ------- 99/180 ----- experimental test
47 -- 09/08/10 ---- -0 LR -2 RC -0 LR -3 LG ------- 95/175 ----- 5 sections
49 -- 09/11/10 ---- -1 LG -3 LR -1 RC -1 LR ------- 94/174 ----- 5 sections
50 -- 09/14/10 ---- -0 RC -0 LR -0 LG -2 LR ------- 98/180 ----- 5 sections
51 -- 09/16/10 ---- -1 LR -2 RC -0 LR -0 LG ------- 98/179 ----- 4 sections (forgot experimental PT)
48 -- 09/25/10 ---- -0 LR -1 LG -2 RC -2 LR ------- 94/174 ----- experimental test
53 -- 09/25/10 ---- -1 LR -0 LG -0 LR -0 RC ------- 99/180 ----- 5 sections
55 -- 09/26/10 ---- -0 LR -2 RC -1 LR -0 LG ------- 97/178 ----- 4 sections
59 -- 10/02/10 ---- -1 LG -1 LR -0 LR -2 RC ------- 97/179 ----- 5 sections

Good luck everyone, especially June retakers.

That's kinda depressing that you scored a 180 2 months before the test and still got a 171 on the real one. Though it seems to be common. Sigh.

Can't believe you took 2 PTs in a single day! I can barely review a 4 section test on the same day!

I didn't take 2 PT's in one day, one of those is a test I broke up into experimental sections and used it for 4 other PT's. I just recorded it as the last date I took it, so it might appear that I took 2 in one day.

How did you feel about the LRB? Do you think its only useful to get aquainted with the section, or do you think it contributed to you being able to score so well on LR? Sorry to intrude on your thread, but I feel like its an "ask the experts" opportunity.

I thought it was a great tool to learn the concepts and techniques. I had to nail it down mainly through practice and repetition though. It also neglects one very important concept -- necessary vs. sufficient assumption questions. Check out LSAT blog for information on this concept, I wasn't able to master assumption questions until I learned about this.

I guess to boil it down, I would definitely recommend it, but you need to go above and beyond to master LR. At the end, I sometimes just went into the zone and could feel out the correct answers on LR, much more so than LG and RC. I just knew that an answer was correct from practicing so much lol.

My strategy was to do a chapter from the LRB, then do the corresponding questions from PT's 19-38 (If i'm recalling correctly). I found the question type break down again on the LSAT Blog. So on day I would do the assumption chapter from the LRB, then immediately after I would do all the assumption questions from PT's 19-38. I think it was helpful to master each question type this way.

And no worries, i'm always glad to answer questions and help out when I can.

Okay then, how about 6 in one week? :P

PS: since you used up most of the PTs, what are you planning on doing for studying?

After almost two months avoiding anything law school and LSAT related I finally looked at TLS again today, and here you are Knock. I guess if you're getting back in the game I should too. Here's to 175+ for both of us. Good luck!

Cool, thanks. I am stuck on -7/8 (combined) for LR and can't seem to take the next step. I think I'll start with the chapters on the q types that I have the toughest time with and see if it helps. I'm a June to Oct retaker also, restarting this stuff sucks. Good luck on your studying.

Haha, I hope you enjoyed a relaxing vacation. I'm not quite starting to study yet, but I did order some PT's from Amazon. But i'm going out of town next week so earliest I can start studying is the last couple days of August and early September. But at least I got the ball rolling on it. Good luck to you! Hopefully we can do better this time around :).

I got engaged about a week after scores came out, and since then I haven't had the motivation to study or even do more than brainstorm for my PS. I broke my foot on Sunday though, so I'm thinking of investing in Cambridge LSAT and just printing some tests to start fresh with since I'm out of work for three weeks. Enjoy your time off! You've got this all down still from the looks of your 178 the other day.

Ha, it was luck. But hopefully the rust will shake off very quickly and I can pick up right where I left off. Congratulations on your engagement, your significant other is a lucky person :mrgreen:. Sorry about your foot, but you seem to have the right attitude haha. Only the LSAT could make you look at a broken foot and see a non-excuses opportunity to study.

1 was canceled. It was only a 100 question test originally, 99 after a question was removed from scoring.

Took PT 44 today, with PT 43.1 as the 3rd, experimental section. Results: -2 RC -1 LR (-1 RC) -3 LG -0 LR for 94/174. Pretty happy with my RC and LR scores, but not too happy with my LG performance. I feel like a hitter in a major slump. I had a month or two of -0's, and now I can't get a -0 for the life of me. After bombing with a -4 on the real deal LG, I had hoped I would come back right into my LG groove, but apparently not. It's not really like one identifiable thing either that's giving me trouble in terms of LG. I missed all 3 on one game too, a game i've literally done at least five times, including (I think) in the LG Bible -- the Ferrarra, Gallager, and Oliphant and 8th, 9th, 10th century games. Certainly not a game that is worth of 3 misses. If I had thrown down that -0 LG, I would've been looking at a pretty 97/178, which I would certainly be pleased with. Felt strong on the LR section, and okay on RC. I swear when i'm grade my PT's now I have like PTSD; after getting my June score whenever I grade my tests i'm just waiting to get pummeled.

This is exactly why I haven't taken a full PT since then. :(


:(. Come study with me for our retakes!


I'm on it! I got the ultimate prep package or something to that effect from CambridgeLSAT, so right now I'm going through all the different LR types one by one. My studying was super haphazard last time, so I'm really trying to hone in on what I was weakest in. I pulled a -7 on LR on the real thing, I really need to get that under control first. Then comes drilling for LG timing, which was what accounted for my other three wrong.

Is it sad that I went to the doctor today for my broken foot and when he told me I could go back to work on Sept 30th I really wanted to ask him for another week and a half so I wouldn't have to go back til after the LSAT? That was the first thing that popped in my head.

:lol: :lol: :lol: "You know you're taking the LSAT when.........." :P.

How is that prep package? is that the 500 hardest questions or something? Would you recommend it?

It's not bad, I feel like I bought it too late to really utilize it to the best of my ability... It's PTs 1-38 divided up by question type and put in order of increasing difficulty for LR, LG, and RC and then full PTs of 39-60. It's good for me, because I didn't spend enough time learning to recognize and attack the separate question types. If you already have all the PTs, it might be useful to just buy the package that has them all split up by types, I think you can get it by itself.

Yeah that sounds perfect for you! You'll definitely improve on LR if you keep practicing on questions by type.

Hmmm, I know Cambridge LSAT has a package with the 500 hardest LSAT questions. I was thinking about getting that, what do you think?
