i started studying in july with pithypike and at the end of the month hit 163. a week later i took another pt and hit 163 again. then i hit 171 three days later after serious review. you HAVE to review every single time and really make an effort not to make the same mistakes again.
another 2 days later i hit 175, then 178, then 178.
you have to be conscious of the LSAT everyday, i'd say. breaks occasionally, but not too long.
btw, BP method for RC is garbage. you have to figure out your own method. mine is underline, bracket and highlight, but write one word abstractions to summarize a point so you don't spend too much time on the passage itself instead of the questions. kaplan recommends this approach: it's okay to look back because lots of the questions need context if you're going to answer them correctly.
BP focuses on getting it right the first read through and trying not to look back. which is ... backwards.
Their reasoning doesn't work for me at all, so yeah slowly I'm whittling my way into figuring out my own.
