Mastering Question Types

Postby collegebum1989 » Wed Feb 01, 2012 5:14 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm planning on taking the June 2012 LSAT, I've been prepping for about 5 weeks, my initial diagnostic was 161, and now I'm averaging somewhere around 164-165. My biggest problem sections have been LR and LG.

Most people suggest the following stages for prep: 1) Mastery 2) Speed 3) Endurance.

I've read both Logic Games Bible and Logical Reasoning Bible and done prep tests 7-18 section at a time (2 sections/day) and reviewed all my work. But some people suggest it would be more effective to attack questions by type for each section.

What books are good for separating questions by type? I have most of the preptests (7-65). Is it worth it to buy another book which groups these questions by type or should I continue completing sections at a time?

Suggestions or experiences would be very helpful! Thanks

Google Cambridgelsat or groupedbytype or kaplen mastery you can buy all these from Amazon.

Edit: yes you need to drill by type. Makes it a lot easier to spot your weak areas and what type of wrong answers you pick.

Here is a free web utility I built several years ago.

Logical reasoning question type finder:
http://www.lsatdiscussion2.com/logicalreasoning.php

It covers Preptests 19 though 45. It'll save you $$ since you already have most of the PrepTests and would just be buying books with the same LSAT material you already have that is just organized differently. It's easy to use, does not require registering an account and does not have any annoying pop-up ads or page redirects.

As to your main question, yes, you should focus on drilling (un-timed at this point) particular question types in clusters to get familiar with and master each type of logical reasoning question before doing more full LR sections.
