LG increase?

Postby Clearly » Tue Mar 06, 2012 5:13 am

This was originally posted in the Feb waiting thread, so realize as I speak about expecting scores, I'm referring to the score I'm waiting on, not June.

Questions for you guys!

Are LG really as learn-able as people imply? I'm thinking they are honestly, I can see myself getting better with them already, and I didn't have much time. I'm already studying for June, even as we speak (break on pt!)... I anticipate about a 165 because that's where I was testing consistently before the Feb test. I only had about a month to study, and took a Kaplan course. I just started getting better at LG when the test came up. I consistently score -1 on LR(per section), and maybe -3 on RC... I lose all my points on games, usually hybrid games because I never had time to get consistently good at them. The more I read about people genuinely mastering LG the higher I'm setting my goals for June. That's where my points go, and that seems to be the best chance at improvement. I also never really prepped RC, because I wasn't doing terribly and didn't see it as my best opportunity time wise before the Feb, I assume with some actual work I can bring that up a bit as well. Opinions? My plan is to order Manhattan RC book, and LGb and LRb from powerscore, as well as join the velocity LG online course. I have 97 days, is that sufficient for the improvement I'm looking for? I have a hell of an LSAT work ethic and have no problem with a few hours a day. Unfortunately I'm in my last semester and have 22 credits which I'm viewing as my last chance to pull up my pretty bad GPA (3.3). My plan is destroy the June, pull up to a 3.4-3.5 and ED UVA. Do you think balancing 22 credits with the needed improvement in LSAT is possible?

I was also considering Oct, as it would relieve me of the burden of the credits, but put me further into the cycle. What do you guys think?

Thanks in advance!

Learn the correct methods for attacking each game type and then...repetition, repetition, repetition......REPETITION! Along with RC, LG is the easiest section, as it should be. It only accounts for roughly 22.7% of your score (assuming 23/101 questions).

Hopefully your credits aren't too challenging. I would highly recommend sitting in June, and just probably overwork yourself for this semester. I mean you /are/ planning on going to law school, so view this overwhelming amount of work to take care of as practice. ^.^

And yes, LG is easily learnable. It just takes a lot of work -- don't be afraid to redo old games either. You can get a lot of extra practice that way.

Only 22.7... I wish I could have more questions on Games...:cry:
