What to do in between PTs

Postby senorhosh » Tue Jul 05, 2011 11:48 pm

Already went over LGB, LRB, Master LSAT twice.

I'm onto PT's now. My schedule is 3 PT's a week, enough to go over every single one I haven't gone over already by Oct test without running out.

Going over mistakes takes about 1 hour max. I do thoroughly go over them so I don't know how much more thorough I can be.

PT: 3 hours.
Review: 1 hour

What do I do in between one PT and the next? (besides reading Economist, etc.)
I don't want to waste PT's just yet, but I don't feel comfortable studying only 4 hours every other day

Any suggestions?

Review your PT more. If you really want to squeeze all the worth out of your PTs you should review wrong AND right answers. Figure out exactly why every answer choice is correct or incorrect. That should take care of your free time. Alternatively/additionally you could take your PT timed first, and then untimed before scoring, as some do.

Ya, reviewing takes 1+ hr for me.

Perhaps focus on the Cambridge specific question sets for problems which you have missed. Or thoroughly review the Bibles. If you're not making your goal score yet, then you probably could think of some form of productive studying.

Has that worked for you? Does it seem to be enough review to get into 17x?

Look back over old stuff and redo it. You can get a lot of work out of redoing games in particular, but to some extent you can get the same out of RC/LR. Not a ton, just to give yourself another hour or two on your day between PTs.

I just started, so I can't tell you entirely. I'm hoping that it will. Granted, I'm basically retaking the test when I review.
