Under the pressure

Postby rishabhagny » Mon May 16, 2011 7:55 pm

After a couple months of studying I've got my LG section down to an average of -4, which isn't too bad, but can definitely be improved. However my score in LR and RC has been "not so wonderful." I completed the Logical Reasoning Bible but am having some difficult grasping the concepts; and for RC, I have no "tactical" way on how to attack the questions. Any suggestions?

Also, here is my study "schedule":

MWF: Review concepts in the morning (LG, LR) and take PT in the afternoon
TuTh: Review previous days LSAT

After that I'm pretty much out of ideas :/

I appreciate the feedback!

What is your approach to RC? I think one of the biggest mistakes people make is taking notes or otherwise marking up the passage during the first read. Waste of time. In general it is important to identify if your low scores are a result of running out of time or a result of simply answering the questions wrong. Trying varying these two variables and see what happens. I.e. if you are always running out of time but getting a lot right, take the test faster and see if you come out ahead. If you are finishing but getting a lot of questions wrong, take more time per question and see what happens.

What is your strategy for RC? I usually go through and mark it up the first time and then answer the questions; I seem to be getting them wrong, but I am usually finishing the section 80% of the time. I've heard about the RC bible, but I'm not sure if it's really worth it.

Any further suggestions on how to attack RC?

Thanks.

this thread has TONS of useful information on how to prepare/attack RC. I found it invaluable.
