An Online One-on-One Study Buddy for LR

Postby kinorkahol » Thu Oct 28, 2010 8:00 pm

I just got to PT 45 and felt the test change significantly. Whereas in previous tests I was used to getting 0-3 wrong on RC, I got an unbelievable 10 wrong in this test! Whereas in previous tests I was used to only finishing 3 out of 4 games, here I finished all 4 (accurately) with plenty of time to spare. LR has always been my worst section, currently due to poor reading (missing little details, picking the wrong one out of two; and, most recently, sleep deprivation), but here, after having improved, I sank back down...

So...what do you think of using an online (non-video) chat program to review why 4 of the answer choices are wrong and 1 is credited in LR? I'm not always sure about my explanation for an answer when I have it down to one or two. Anyone up for a one-on-one question review session from PT 45 and on? We'd go over the questions we had the most trouble explaining.

I'm up for 45 tomorrow night (working full-time).

Are you a guy or a girl? Just kidding.

I have some LR sections from the latest tests where I've typed out a summary of what's important in the stim, and why the right answers are right, and the wrong answers are wrong.

I can email you what I have if you want. 53, 57, 59, 60. I think.

Worst possible time to be making a thread like this.

Why? Because people who see their score release on Friday and won't like it won't want to think about the test for at least a few days?

Haha. Girl.

Hmm, thanks for the offer, but I think I'll pass for now. I'm really more interested in having an active (online) discussion on a test-by-test basis that also forces me to explain answers. However, I'll PM you if I change my mind later and don't forget about my own thread.

The people who would be willing are probably very concerned about getting their score, and after score release tomorrow this thread will be on page 10.

Hmm...somehow I didn't think that there would be too too many posts, but I am new to this forum. So much for consolidated threads (one for scores, one for thoughts about re-taking, one for general complaining/angst/venting...). Hopefully, I can rely on peoples' curiosity, boredom, procrastination, masochism, or whatever else to keep browsing through the pages. I don't think I'd be able to bump this up by commenting once on Saturday (I haven't paid too much attention to how the forum works)...I can wait a little, though, or make a new post like this later.

On any normal day, you are right. But the day of LSAT score release, all bets are off.

We just need a TLS IRC where everyone can converse at will with whoever's online. Besides, it would give the lurkers a real time connection for flaming everything that someone says :)

Haha. *imagines chaos that would result*

Or a TLS chat room a la chatzy. I might actually do this if there are takers.

Ok, back to studying! I've hardly reviewed.

Have you tried taking any PTs 50+? If so, how did you on the RC? I generally go -5 or -6 on RC but I kill LG/LR. I would gladly spend one-on-one messenger time if the chats can be mutually beneficial. (My LR/LG explanations for your RC explanations).

Also, a chat channel would not be a bad idea at all.

If I receive a score less than 168 on the Oct 2010 exam, I would be interested in going over some LR questions with explanations. This goes for anyone who wants to review some of these questions, particularly the more challenging ones. Feel free to PM me if interested.

The print-screen thing is only for 175+, otherwise we're running on the honor system.

Lol if I got a 175+, I most definately won't be returning to this forum for quite some time! I'd be excited to just see a 170.

Yeah were you not around for the 3 day aftermath of October 9th? Total shitshow.
I can imagine that tomorrow will be just as comical.
