June LSAT

Postby phillykid » Wed May 16, 2012 6:38 pm

Taking June LSAT upcoming. I started studying on and off last fall with an initial cold diagnostic of 150. I have increased my studying time to 3 to 4 hours a day since a couple weeks ago. My last 5 prep tests are 167, 162, 161, 162, 162- the last one being June 2007 (I'm including a 5th section as well). I'm averaging -1 LG, -10 LR, -9 RC. With three weeks left (I'm not doing any preptests within 4 or 5 days of the actual test), what are my chances of getting a 165? Any tips for improvement are welcomed as well :D

Thanks everyone.

Based on your last five prep tests, your chance of scoring 165+ is 1:5... aka "not good"

Seriously though, no one knows. Just keep studying. Good job jumping 10+ points from your diag btw.

How are you studying? Are you still working through some material on LR? If yes, they you can probably shave 5 or so misses off of your LR section which would definitely put you around what you're looking for.

Still working through LR. Sections are hit or miss (e.g. 25/25 and 18/25 in the same test). I have the LR Bible that I need to look through for question types that I struggle with. Also, I have noticed a trend of RARELY getting any of the first 10 questions incorrect for LR (probably 80% of the time). Of course, the questions become harder in the 12-20 range but it's not unusual for me to miss 5 questions from 12-25. Timing is sometimes an issue but I end up having to guess on 1 question at most.

Did this book not kill PTs for you? I sectioned off certain tests only for drilling (19-22 and then 33-51) because I was scared that I would ruin PTs for myself by remembering questions...

Fair question. I used the 1st book that uses 1-30 to drill. Then used 29-64 for PTs and sections.
I wouldnt recommend the the cambrige book until after using 29-38 as PTs, since that book is 1-40.
