2 quick LSAT questions

Postby law1107 » Mon May 16, 2011 9:50 pm

I tried to search for a similar thread using the forum search but failed so sorry in advance.

1) When should I start studying for the LSAT. I am going to be a Junior in undergrad this fall semester.

2) When should I take the LSAT?

and I guess I had 3 questions....What are powerscore bibles or whatever? Are those something I should be reading now?

Thank you

1. as early as possible, but make sure to keep up your undergrad gpa
2. June before your senior year then retake in October if you didn't do well. Or if you are really ambitious then february of your junior year (personally, i think it has a more generous curve because mostly unprepared seniors take the test then)

Wait more than 15 minutes before you bump.

Start at least two months, preferably 3-4 months (especially if you'll have other stuff like school to worry about) before you want to take the test. June 2012 is probably the best test date to aim for, though if you'll have more free time during fall semester than during spring semester, December 2011 or February 2012 might also make sense.

They're the first books you should read in your LSAT prep.

Would you recommend buying all three of the powerscore bibles?
And are those something to read "2 months preferably 3-4 months" before test or are those something I should read now?

thanks again

Buy all three, read and reread them, especially the explanations (even for problems you got correct). Do all your work outside the books so you can reuse them properly. (For logic games, of course, make sure you only use about a quarter of a sheet of paper since there is no scratch on the exam.)

I really find it hard to believe that these answers didn't show up when you searched them.
