logic games prep before June lsat?

Postby lakers3peat » Thu Jun 02, 2011 3:37 pm

i've done lots of practicing on games through individual PTs but in this last week I've basically been focusing on LR questions I've gotten wrong in the past, and drilling on some RC passages...


what do you fellow posters think about one final prep for games, today tommorow or saturday with 5 games sections like it was an actual LSAT. 3 sections, break then the 2 more games sections. I know it sounds kind of crazy but I dont want to go into monday and just freeze on logic games cause I havent done any in the last few days.

Couldn't hurt. Might help. I'd say go for it.

Do it!

Just make sure it is a good variety mix of games old and new that you haven't done/reviewed recently. Stick to strict time limits, phone, PC & TV off limits, etc.

How have you been doing on accuracy/time to this point?

I'd say if you're worried primarily about speed, you have nothing to lose. Be careful, though, if you've had issues with accuracy.

i'm usually dead on with accuracy. in rare occasions, I might miss 1 question on a game because I don't usually double check my work so that I can complete all 4. i find that when I get overly nervous and double check questions that I'm pretty confident are right I can only make it through games 1 2 3 and then 2/3rds of game 4, so I miss out on 2 questions in the 4th game... it really just depends on the section though.. for example, I just did PT 53 yesterday and finished just before the "5 minutes" remaining call on my lsat proctor... the two times before it, 54 and 56, I got to the last game with 12 minutes remaining... so sometimes I'm spot on and othertimes I'm a little slower. for december 2010, when i took it, I was able to do 1, 4, 2, then 3/4s of game 3.

i also find games to be the only enjoyable section of the LSAT. i mean i would prefer a beer and a ball game, but comparatively speaking, more fun then doing RC passages lol.

I'm with you on this one. I'll curl up in bed with a couple logic games before I fall asleep.

It would have been nice if the Lakers made it to the next round.

Yeah, the sweep sucked. It's the end of an era. It would have been pure awesome if Jackson had put the final jewel on all of it before retiring, that would have been a 180 for sure.
