Huh, I very much scaled down my expectations relative to my PT range in comparison. I haven't scored below 170 in like 2 months, most tests have been 172-179 (except for one 170). If I hit the bottom of my PT range, personally I'll be satisfied. Maybe it's jsut because everyone says to expect a 3 point drop on your first test or whatever, but I definitely have tempered expectations.
If I recall correctly, you were doing Velocity, right? How much an improvement have you made, and how many weeks did you do? Hitting over 170 consistently is quite good, congrats.
-----Good luck to everyone!
Yep, I did Velocity. I started it middle of November and finished it up in about 6 weeks, so I was done with all the material Dave provides by the New Year, so that was pretty intensive every day a few hours to get it done that fast. My first test done with Velocity was a 164 and my last test was a 175 with a pretty standard increase throughout the ten tests. I figured doing that I would get a really good base understanding of everything then I would take the last few weeks to do drilling and Practice tests. Since then I've probably done a dozen more tests, all 170+ with a peak of 179, and have done a lot of drilling (I bought a lot of stuff from Cambridge LSAT). I think my strategy was pretty good. Going through velocity fast I was able to learn all of the strategies, then I took a lot of time on my own to hammer them home.
