A difficult study situation

Postby 2things2 » Sun Feb 27, 2011 12:10 pm

So here's my story. I took Testmasters before the December LSAT, and I was testing in the upper 160s nearly 170 but on test day I scored a 162. I applied to schools, my cycle is meh, and now I want to retake the LSAT in June and see what happens. This gives me a little over 3 months to really kick ass. My question is this: How do I study? Testmasters gave me all of the actual tests from the last 5 years, plus all of the questions from the last 20 years. Are there preptests that aren't actual tests? (and no I will NOT take Kaplan's fake tests, as they are horrible). Anyone have any suggestions?

If you have exhausted every preptest, see Bernie's post on learning from old material.

I do not know how recent of tests that you actually completed, but you could purchase some of the newer ones through the LSAC or Cambridge (there are plenty of places) and use those as a new study references. Although there will not be as many new questions to study, it will be fresh material. I am pretty sure that test up to Dec 2010 are available... February is likely to be unavailable until after the June 11' LSAT is administered.

"Fresh" material is overrated. Read Bernie's post linked above.
