Retakers retaking old PTs

Postby jim-green » Fri Apr 29, 2011 5:59 pm

Anyone here a retaker who has retaken an old PT and would care to comment on the score differences you saw? When I retake old PTs with 3 months or more between them, I get only a 5-7 point score increase, mainly due to remembering old errors. This does not sound good to me. I expected 180s on any old PT. What is your experience?

as you long as you know why it was an error, and why the right answer is right, I wouldn't try to quantify the change in score. LSAT study by brute force is all about pattern recognition. Its the same questions and same games over and over again. Be encouraged that you are improving, shoot for perfection every time you take a test- retake or not.

I'm getting 178-180s on my retakes (about 1.5 to 2 month break). Definitely some questions that I remember, but as a whole I don't seem to have much of a recollection of the tests. They've definitely been helpful in reviewing tricky question/ positive reinforcement especially since I only have about 5 "new" test left.

Yeah I kill old tests. Hate them. They serve only to inflate my expectations only to be deflated when taking new tests and fucking up on silly shit.
