Who thinks stamina..

Postby Teflon_Don » Sun Apr 15, 2012 9:08 pm

is the key to this test? I can straight up crush one reading passage, but my problem is that I get tired... add 3 more passages and it's a disaster! ha. For the most part, the exam seems pretty simple if you take out the stamina factor. I can crush ONE logical reasoning section, but throw in 4 more sections and it's an entirely different story. So I guess the best answer is to start adding one more passage, section, etc. until I crush that and then build all the way up to a full-length test? A common analogy would be it's easy to run one lap, but difficult to jump in and run a marathon, so incrementally building endurance is key? I really feel like that's my biggest problem. Thanks for the insight/advice!

Yes, doing many questions back-to-back in a short period of time is part of the test. Wait until you get to law school and you have 3 fact patterns with separate issues to spot and analyze in three hours, with no 15 minute breaks.

Stamina is surely necessary, but not sufficient. :wink:

imo, accuracy and understanding are the true keys.

Please, just max out your Barter and bribe LSAC into giving you a 180.
