165>>>how do i make the leap to 169/170

Postby JD=Doctor » Wed Sep 01, 2010 2:02 am

I actually took the LSAT and got my avg score which was a 165...

I started prepping again for the oct test...i felt i didnt have enough time to just take tests after my prep course ....
My LR looks like a -7 total (like on test day) I'v gotten -0 on games before but got -3 on test day and -8 on RC on test day (which ranges a lot but usually -6/7)

i cant seem to make the mental jump ... if i take my 2nd best scores from all my tests i would i have LR -6 LG -0 RC -4
which would do it but i can never put it all together

how can i bring up my range and make that few point jump.

Get another seven or eight questions correct.



And LR is the way to go here, -7 should be made into -4 at the most. RC is tough to improve on. And keep practicing LG.

You need to figure out which areas give you most trouble (i.e. types of games, types of LR questions) and drill those till they improve.

Do you usually do worse on later sections? If so do 5 and 6 section tests to improve endurance.

You need a targeted approach.

I think that missing 1 less question in each PT should be sufficient to bridge that gap.
