Was the LSAT Blog study guide enough?

Postby livelovelaugh49 » Thu Jul 07, 2011 3:38 pm

So, I am studying to re-take the LSAT in October and I recently purchased and began using the LSAT blog 3-month day-to-day study guide. I am only 5 days in, but I am a bit concerned because although I am going through many logic games I do not feel I am studying nearly as much as I studying last time around. So, for those of you that have used this study guide, did you feel like you had to do more study BEYOND what this study guide suggests? I don't want to over study and get burned out, but I don't want to understudy either. I know it varies by person, but I just thought I would get others thoughts and experiences with this study guide!

I think for the 2nd time around you really need to focus on your weaknesses.

What was your breakdown of missed questions per section? The LSAT blogspot is great, but you probably already know what areas you need to focus on.

I agree.

I also am on a study plan from LSAT blog (haven't taken the LSAT yet) and I had the same kind of thoughts..ie is this enough? So I usually do more practice than is outlined. For instance if I am practicing a certain type of question I usually follow up with drills of more of the same type of questions.

Also on days when the blog schedule has you off I would recommend taking a PT or focusing on something you're having trouble with. The blog gives you two days off a week and I wouldn't take both of them off. If you aren't being pushed or stretched, you might think about doing more on your own.

I definitely have room to improve in all sections, so I have no problem following the flow that the study guide is suggesting so far (starting with LG first then moving on to LR and so on), but the first time around I would seriously come home from work around 5 and study until 11:30pm, now I finish what is on the guide in like an hour and a half... and I am taking my time. So, although time may not be a good determiner I am just a little nervous, so I guess it can't hurt to study a little more.

I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this way. Good point... I think I will use the "days off" for a PT, good use of time and practice. Thanks for your input!! Best of luck to you, I'm sure you will do great!
