Testmasters course for December LSAT but testing in Feb

Postby kob » Tue Nov 16, 2010 3:37 pm

Hi everyone,

I started with the Testmasters course in October, for the December LSAT. I'm not taking the actual test until February though - I am working full time and want to take it when I'm testing in the range I want to be in (170s). Until the class is over I have plenty of homework to keep me busy, but following the course, does anyone have advice for how to proceed? I can't be the only person who has done this! Thank you.

Review the curriculum/strategies and then take pts.

Gluck.

It takes awhile to digest the material from an LSAT prep course so you may be on the right track to maximizing your score.

Agreed with previous responses.

Sometimes people fall behind with the homework during a prep course, especially in TM, where they assign a TON of homework.

For this reason, and the fact that sometimes people need more time to let things digest, I'm of the opinion that it's better to give yourself plenty of time after the course to review things more thoroughly on your own before taking the exam itself.

As XtraordinaryMachine said, review what you learned, fill in any conceptual gaps, and get used to taking full sections and PTs (TM focuses a lot on doing questions by type).

review your notes, drill your weak areas, and do full length prep tests and review. You have a great plan actually. Allowing yourself extra time to digest the material and stregnthen your weak areas will help ensure that you will only need to take the test once.

Save some of the last section of Supplemental LR questions for a month or so before your Feb test, and save yourself some PT's as well so you can keep track of your progress along the way.
