None of this is to say you can't increase scores on SAT-type tests like the LSAT. It's just that most of the increase will come in the first 50 hours, and significant increases above and beyond that won't occur until one has studied a few thousand hours or more. I'd rather spend my time doing other things.
ITT, we throw around arbitrary numbers and we don't link the studies we're referring to.
We also have no idea what the fuck we're talking about, if we're jgloster.
You understand that conditional, little breh? I bet you don't, because you didn't put in that last hour and twenty-three minutes of studying.
to get you started. Exact numbers depend on study, but as far as I've seen SAT comes out on top of the IQ correlation list. I've seen the SAT correlation as high 0.9, but I guess usually it comes up in the 0.8 area. Still, a very high correlation.
TITCR. Now if only I can find similar research about the LSAT...
