God yes. I can't imagine spending more than another week on it.


Yes! More than another week and I may not be sane enough to take the test.

I read earlier where someone suggested focusing on the sections where you do the best. At this point I am bashing my head against a wall with LR. No matter what I have tried, it doesn't seem to be helping. So for the past few days I have been really focusing on RC and LG. I have already improved my score by 2 points, just by getting better at the sections I find easier. I just wanted to pass this onto anyone who might be feeling the same way.

How many of you have already taken PT 60-62?

This is probably a dumb question, but what is the difficulty of the June 2007 test? I have 3 more PTs 62, 60, and 55. Debating whether is worth to throw in the June. Had a rise in PT59, but a drop in 58 :( . So angry with 58, decided not to stop reviewing until a good hold on LR. Doing more review today, and testing tomorrow. I'm so close to my target.

Didn't June 2007 have an insane curve?

I thought June 2007 was pretty easy, but I did score a bit lower than usual. It has a -8 curve.

June 2007 really sucked. It's a really hard test with an unforgiving curve (-8 ). If you're like me and bad PT scores discourage you I would recommend NOT doing that test the week before the test.


Took 62 today. I don't even know....I'm just so glad I didn't take that test. UGH.

Got a 156 :cry: :cry: :cry:

I think I'm done with PT's. I think my plan for the next week is to do all (or as many as I get to) the games in the tests that I've taken as PT's (since I've only done those like once and not thoroughly) and then some section work with LR and RC.

I'm scared for this test now, ugh :(

I thought it sucked, only because it was the free test LSAC gave me months ago. -8 curve for a diagnostic? Come on, bro! Way to scare me.

62 is the devil and I hate it. I had to sign up for February after taking it as the real thing in December. F that test.

Dude wtf...

It was like one of those tests where you don't really feel like it went that badly and then bam 2nd lowest scores out of all my PT's. I did bad in every single section.

I think you're a retaker, so you probably already know this, but lack of confidence is one thing you do NOT want on this test. If you are confident that you know the material, then just relax this next week. Doing just games sounds good. You've put in the work, so just do light stuff to stay sharp, and be confident knowing that you've seen basically everything LSAC can throw at you. You definitely don't want nerves related to a bad recent PT messing with you on test day when you need to be thinking about the test at hand.

Me too, but LR was what really got me. The generous curve didn't even save my score. The games filled me with excruciating terror. I genuinely feel that LSAC screwed the December test takers over.

So I wouldn't worry about it. Aren't you glad you waited for February?

I am a retaker but I still needed to hear what you said. Yeah, I think I'm done with PT's now. I'm just going to go with lots of games and a couple LR and RC sections so I don't forget how to LSAT, ha.

Here's my breakdown for lulz:
RC: -8
LR: -6
LG: -11 (!!!)
LR: -8

Like really? My best section was a -6? That's how my scores were towards the beginning/middle of my October test prep!! The generous curve didn't do jack shit for me haha.

I didn't feel that games were that difficult or different but they were SO time consuming that it was impossible to get through all of them. I skipped stained glass which was of course the longest game (8 questions or something) so that's where most of my misses came from.

I'm so so so glad I waited for February (unless February decides to fuck us over too lol).

LG was a goddamn time vampire.

How could I take that test and score at the same level of my second PT ever? RAGE. My best section was a -6 as well. First LR was -10. FML, right?

Yeah, I scored 1 point higher than the score I'm retaking...with like 3 extra months of prep. I would die if that was my real score.
