Retaking October, but scoring almost perfect on all Ptests

Postby Tiger123 » Sun Aug 14, 2011 3:06 pm

So I was averaging around 174 consistently before the June LSAT took all 61 practice test and freaked out day of and cancelled immediately. I took about 3 months off from studying because I was so burned out, which I know was kind of dumb and now I just started again from Ptest 40 and on. The problem is I don't think I remember the questions when I approach them, but I'm guessing I subconsciously do because I haven't scored below 179 yet. I'm scared I'm going to build too much confidence and then when I get to the actual exam and see completely brand new questions it will hurt me. Any tips on other ways to study or is it okay to just keep going over the old tests?

Do you have issues with anxiety? It might be worth your time to work on dealing with stress and nervousness even more than pting if this is a recurring issue.

That being said, you're in a good place score wise, so that should at least be some relief. If you need to keep PTing then that's fine, but have you been paying attention to what sorts of questions you miss on PTs? It may be more to your advantage to drill questions by type than to PT at this point, as having finished all PTs you undoubtedly have some familiarity with how the test goes and the ins and outs of timing.
