LSAT HELP NEEDED

Postby trayball23 » Wed Nov 10, 2010 6:01 pm

I have time issue with the logic games section.I usualy only get through 3 games. I know I could smoke this test if I could get through all 4 I score 163-169 even with this flaw.

Practice is key. How many timed games sections have you done?

Same thing happened to me basically but after six monthes of practice I began to go from -10 to -3 average on LG and high 160s became mid 170s

Heres what worked for me - 1. buy the LG bible do it carefully -

then use old tests to do practice sections of games - mix timed and untimed practice - any game you get questions wrong xerox and do it again untimed the next day while its still fresh, then do it timed a week later

Do the same thing with sections from PTs - after you complete them the first time - review them carefully, see where you got bogged down and do them again slowly and correctly- then xerox the section and a couple of days later do it again like a new timed practice section

slowly you will be suprised how much cmore quickly and efficently you get through sections

if you still have technique problems - buy another copy of the LG bible and do it again, start to finish (yes, I completed the whole LG bible twice)

Good luck!

+1 on redoing games. Learning to make more inferences up-front will allow you to get through games faster. Get your hands on more exams. The more games you do, the more familiar you become, and the more likely it will be that you can relate a new game to one you've previously done.

you should take heart, the LG section is the one with most potential for improvment, like everyone else said the more practice the better and repeating previously completed sections you had trouble on is also very beneficial. For the new tests I would go to cambridgelsat.com personally because you also get solutions for the LG section with each PT you buy.
