Where do i go from here??

Postby thainess » Fri Aug 19, 2011 1:33 am

PT 1 - 148 Timed
PT 2 - 152 Timed

PT 3 - 158 untimed
The break down
Sec 1 LG - (-2) 48 minutes to complete
Sec 2 LR - (-6) 54 Minutes to complete
Sec 3 LR - (-8) 50 minutes to complete
Sec 4 RC - (-9) 60 minutes to complete

Time is a huge issue. my goal is 164/165. i am taking the oct lsat. I was thinking about buying the blueprint prep or testmasters online course... would it be worth it here?? i know that oct 1 is coming up real soon.

I have been reading the bibles. probably like 1/4ish through the LRB and 3/4 through the LGB

question really is where do i go from here? just keep taking the practice tests, buy the online prep, etc? i bought the 30 practice tests.

Do all of the bibles. You probably need to wait until December at this point. Time is not your problem at all. If it was, you wouldn't have scored a 158 while taking at least 48 minutes on every section. Get the accuracy down, then worry about time.

If you aren't getting close to perfect or at least -1 for each passage for an untimed Reading Comp, then something is terribly wrong. You need to...read better?

As for LR, getting -8 and -9 untimed means you are not understanding the material enough. Do drills by question types and learn the questions first.

I also ask the same question; "Where do I go from here". I am getting very frustrated with my pts. Have been averaging 145 in my pts after several months of intensive studying (about 10 hours a day). I can only attempt 2 LGs, 2 RC passage, and 18 questions in the LR sections. I end up with a raw score of about 50. I have the PS books except the RC book. I do also have all the pts from 7-61. During review, most of the questions make sense but during the practice test, I am in a different word. I have been preparing over a year for this. Just don't know what to do. Need help so bad from guys and gals out there please.

I think you can probably hit your goal but not by October. You need to buy the bibles and build a solid understanding of how to approach the questions and then work on timing. My advice would be to bump your test back to December and buy the Powerscore logic games bible and logic reasoning bible. Good luck.

you're not going to be ready in time for October.
