Most difficult questions book

Postby paulshortys10 » Fri Jun 17, 2011 1:43 am

So i decided to buy this book http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-LSAT-Pra ... 107&sr=8-1

One because I won't be doing any of the test's form 1-28, and two because I want to do some untimed practice while at the gym and while working.

Has anyone found these books beneficial, and what other uses have you given to these types of books.

i think it can be good to face that which is the "most difficult of the difficult"

but of course, one must be sufficiently practiced and successful on those of moderate difficulty. so practice w/ that book but make sure you can do the "average" game really well. think of it this way, every LSAT might have one VERY difficult game, but it will also have 2-3 average games.

This seems like a bad idea.

pauly... buddy... you've been working at the lsat for a while now, i gotta say, it's time to start taking it seriously. muscle comes, muscle goes. it's not gonna kill you to take some time off from the gym to get some honest study in, you can just train harder after you beast the lsat. but you're never gonna beast it as long as you are even capable of entertaining the notion that this is a good plan.

an example of good lsat study = go to the library, don't bring your cell phone, and leave after 4 hours which would include a 30-45 minute review of theory, a full PT, and then a post mortem of the lsat in which you are actually writing down a few cogent sentences for each wrong answer on why you got it wrong.

an example of bad lsat study = doing untimed drills in between squats, solving an LG while banging out your pecs.

you know how it is in the gym, go big or go home. it's the same with the lsat, except the lsat actually kinda matters in the long-term.

I used a similar book (it was published by Kaplan so I had to ignore the explanations) almost exactly like you're talking about. I was already scoring in the mid-to-upper-170s on my PTs, so I got the book for extra practice with difficult questions. I only worked on the problems in areas with distractions (my living room while my 2 year old was home, at work, etc.). I figured if I could handle these problems while being distracted, a normal problem should be easy. It seemed to work for me.
