taking october LSAT. there are a lot of preptests that...

Postby shifty_eyed » Thu Sep 16, 2010 8:03 pm

I haven't done yet.

I've done the superprep book, and the 10 actual LSATS, and the next ten actual LSATs (29-38).

Should I just order the most recent LSATs individually, and not bother with the other 10 actual LSAT book?

Realistically, I will not do more than 15 preptests between now and testday.

I scored 177 and 178 on my last two preptests, for what it's worth.

You seem to be in a good position.

Take the most recent tests. If you can take 50-60. The newer LSAT's are different from the ones of the 90's. Not necessarily harder/easier, just different.

Work with the most recent ones to get a really good idea of where you are.

Good luck!

I took the september 2009 LSAT and got a 170, and I definitely noticed differences between that and the ones I'd done before. However, I was hoping that the next 10 (tests 29-38) would be recent enough.

I will skip the other book, and just stick to the most recent individual tests, I think.

I'm on schedule to have almost every PT complete by Oct 9th, and I can say that the newer exams (43 and up) are noticeably different from the earlier exams. RC is definitely tougher and LR feels slightly different. If you are taking 15 more PTs before test day, I would recommend taking the 15 most recent ones. It may cost you a nice chunk of change, but it would be stupid to waste your enormous potential.

Thank you! I was wondering when the change occurred exactly. I think I will order 50-60 for now. Only working part-time, so I will have ample time to go over these, I HOPE.
