Study Plan?

Postby Palavra » Thu May 05, 2011 7:12 pm

I'm jut starting to study for the October LSAT and recently got the LG, LR and RC bibles. My "study plan" basically involves going over all three books and then starting to do prep tests. I'm not interested in knowing what my "cold" diagnostic score is as I am pretty sure I will need to improve in all areas in order to get a good score. What do you guys think of this "plan"? My feeling is that it is good to learn all the concepts and ways of tackling different questions before starting to do lots of questions so that I do it "right" from the beginning. What do you guys think?

Should really take a cold diagnostic. It's nice seeing progress.

I would do a cold diagnostic before cracking those books. Of course most people will need to improve in all the sections, but it will tell you where you need to focus most and allow you to track your progress. It only takes a few hours to do, and there's no real dowside that I can think of.

Agreed. It is really nice to see the progress and it helps keep you motivated. Also, I would do a test every other week or so while going through the bibles (though it shouldn't take too long.) There is definitely value in struggling through a few games and then seeing how the LGB would do it, which is not necessarily the "right" way to do it, but it is a very effective way.
