PT-ing for Dec retake, which tests to use?

Postby brotoss » Tue Nov 01, 2011 3:06 pm

I'm planning on retaking in December and want to focus on practice testing, because I only did about 5 for the October test. Given that I have time for about 15-20 practice tests before Dec., which ones should I use? Should I just go about 20 behind from Oct 2011 and go from there? I plan on doing a PT about every other day with review of the PT in between days with some drilling on weaknesses. Thanks for the advice.

If you do not mind me asking, what did you receive this past october? I feel like at least for me, my biggest score improvements came when I identified my weaknesses and drilled those areas, making sure I sufficiently went over every question I answered incorrectly.

Before I changed my strategy I think I approached the LSAT with the wrong mentality. I thought that exposure was key so I started to take an LSAT each day, sometimes two a day, for almost a month. I realized that this was not working when I took the same PT a month later (actually by accident) and received nearly the same score the 2nd time around. The crazy thing was that I got pretty much the same questions wrong both times around. This confirmed that I did not understand the question types sufficiently and that I did not do the most important thing with PTing, which was reviewing incorrect answers.

After I changed my strategy I personally went from averaging about -8 per LR sections to averaging -2.


But I guess another issue would be the amount of time you have for PTing, seeing how you are trying to retake 2 months after your 1st one...


Anyway, good luck with the studying and I hope you get the score increase you want this December!

Thanks for the reply. I scored a 154, which was lower than I was PTing at. I took a powerscore course and feel like I understand all of the question types and such, I feel like I just need more exposure to practice tests and review of them to see where I'm getting things wrong and why.
