February '11 test takers?

Postby dallasag12 » Tue Sep 21, 2010 12:20 am

I understand this is probably bad timing with upcoming LSAT so close. I'm taking the February '11 LSAT and am planning on applying in the Fall of 2011. Are there any others doing the same?

My diagnostic score is a 160, and I'm a little overwhelmed with starting my studying. I've got the LGB, LRB, RCB and most practice tests. What's the best way to really dive into the LGB? I can't decide if I should read a chapter first then do the corresponding questions from PT's and also, how to decide which PT's to take sections from and which to save for the end. I've seen pithypike's and NYC blog schedules but need to finally commit to a schedule. Thanks for any suggestions.

160 is a great starting score.

The best way to dive into the Logic Game bible is to read it, do all the exercises in it as you go and then practice on full sections.

You might want to reread it after you break into the mid 160s, because you'll get things out of it you would not have when you were at an even 160.

By the time you get into the 170s, pending LG not being your weakest link, the material will all be pretty obvious, but still pretty impressive as to how adept they are at simplifying information that confounds most of educated America.

Check out the 5-month study schedule for some ideas on how you might want to structure your studying, along with some book recommendations.

And yes, re-reading materials and redoing Logic Games is key to getting a deeper understanding of them. Convincing yourself this stuff is fun can help - A LOT :)

I am taking the Feb LSAT and applying for fall 2011 as well... this will be my second time taking the test. I did not study / practice the first time and was not happy with my score. This round, I am doing the practice tests, since that is what seems to be the most effective for everyone else.. The biggest problem is timing. Anyone could get the right answer if they sit there are read long enough. :-) Where are you going to take it?

+1 OP - I'll be done w/ both the LGB and LRB in hopefully 7-10 days with maybe a PT in between. I might have to review a bit of RC but I don't know if I need to buy the RCB....

Started studying in October/November. Working my way through the 50s PTs at the moment. There's an "official" thread around here somewhere with a bunch of Feb '11 peeps hanging out and talking about the test.
