Logical Reasoning Advice ? Need to Improve !

Postby sbaron » Sun Jan 08, 2012 6:26 pm

I was wondering if anyone has any tips for improving my logical reasoning scores. Arguably the L.R is the most important part of the LSAT in terms of sheer numbers so I want to maximize results in this section. The highest I've achieved is a 20/24 but I consistently get 10 answers wrong seemingly. Ideally, I'd like to achieve 5 wrong maximum. I am working under timed conditions and I think perhaps part of my problem is I am working too fast.

Thanks everyone.

Note: I've purchased Kaplan and the Princeton review. They have tons of helpful techniques. I've also looked over the LSAT blog many times. I was wondering if anyone has any sheer practical advice which I've overlooked?

Figure out which question types you struggle with the most and aggressively drill those. When drilling, don't worry about time. Get accuracy down first before bringing time constraints in to play.

Get the Logical Reasoning bible. You can learn a lot from it. It is way easier than Analytical Reasoning.

Drill. I noticed a greater improvement towards the end when I started to drill question types. Then I could see patterns and implement my strategy on how to attack that specific type of problem.

What resource(s) did you guys use to drill the most effectively?
