1.PT twice a week on Wednesday and Saturdays.
2.Review/drill all LR qs by type I was unsure of from PT 40-60.
3.Go back and do 49, 50 RC untimed, perfecting my technique and mindset
4.Backsolve all RC qs that gave me trouble from 51-64 at least once.
5.Go through logic games 55-64, making sure I've done each one at least three times. Then go through all earlier logic games that gave me trouble.


Busy few weeks :lol:

I took the October test and got a 170. I had studied for about 2 months beforehand-- I worked through the Powerscore bibles and did about 25 pts (and sections from ~20 more). While I ended up doing well on the test, my studying wasn't focused at all: I drilled exactly one question type ('weaken') and almost never did more than 2 sections at a time. I think I did only 1 or 2 5-section tests.

So what I'm focusing on this time is drilling and endurance (ie, what I should have been working on in August). I basically want to go from having a good understanding of the test to mastering it. I bought the Testmasters workbooks, which are organized by question type, on Craigslist. I also ordered the Manhattan bibles (I just worked through the RC book and it is so. much. more helpful than the Powerscore) and pts 61-63.

Monday -- 5 sections RC
Tuesday -- LR drilling (100 q's per type)
Wednesday -- 6 section PT
Thursday -- LR drilling
Friday -- whatever needs work
Saturday -- 5 section PT

I do a section of LG right when I wake up. It's like my morning crossword.

Finally, endurance = doing more full pts, but also having a more intellectually rigorous life outside of LSAT study. When I took the Oct test, I had been out of school for 10 months and my brain was out of shape. After I decided to retake I switched from reading fiction before bed to reading much denser texts (academic journals, Marx, etc.). Already it's been a big help for my RC and LR.
