Study?

Postby newrich » Wed Oct 13, 2010 12:29 am

If you started studying for the LSAT 10 hours per week for 3 years. What would you get on the exam? Is a perfect score possible?

Don't study for 3 years. Well beyond unnecessary.
If you want to be super prepared, get the powerscore LG & LR bibles & every single practice test.

If you studied for the LSAT for 1560 hours without taking a real test you'd get so abstract that the real LSAT would feel as foreign as it does to somebody who hasn't studied. I highly doubt you can score 180 under those circumstances, even with a 170 diagnostic.

Under the current standards of a gunner, what does this make OP?

besides killing yourself and wasting 2 1/2 years of your life, you'd most likely run out of prep materials by the first year. 6 months max.

It's literally not possible to get a perfect score. You'd actually have to get more questions correct than they ask on the exam! I think it's pretty ridiculous that LSAC is allowed to get away with this, but there's not much we can do since LSAC remains a sovereign entity under the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 and Congress still hasn't exercised it's right to exert jurisdiction (and it probably won't as long as the Senate rules still permit secret holds)

OP, it's not about how long you study but how much you learn from your time studying. The most important thing is learning the fundamentals and then grasping all the concepts; most importantly understanding how to spot the wrong answers. This test is predictable. Once you grasp--and master--each and every concept, you will be able to dominate this thing. If it takes you 3 years to grasp them, by all means knock yourself out; likewise, if it takes you 3 weeks to grasp the concepts, the same applies. However, a 180 is a different beast that doesn't just come to anyone.
