Need help improving my score

Postby xdarealistkillax » Tue Jun 12, 2012 1:23 pm

Hello everyone,

First thing first i would like to state that English is my 3rd language but i am very fluent in it and it is my dominant language outside home. I've been in the United States for 11 years now and i think other then my grammar, my English is pretty good.

I am not being able to finish any of the sections on time, i've been practicing since March and I've taken many Prep Tests and i just can't seem to get past 146-147 and I really don't want to go to Cooley or UDM Law (I live in Michigan). I know i can do better, when i look back at the mistakes i made in choosing the right answers i immediately know what i did wrong, it just seems that i keep doing it over and over again.

LR i usually end up filling the last 4-5 Questions, an entire Logic Game and RC passage. The questions I answer are mostly right however i completely bomb the ones i guess on. The Max i can get right on a section is 14 and it's really getting on my last nerve.

Anyways, I took yesterday's LSAT I finished two LR sections on time, but i again skipped a whole passage on RC, a whole LG and about 4 questions on the last LR section. Needless to say, I guessed on about at least 20-25 questions, bad i know. I will be cancelling my score obviously, as i will get a 145-159 score, I'm sure of it.

I will re-take it on October, and i am really shooting for 155-160 score, I am very capable in getting that score, I just haven't found the right method yet. I have bought the Princeton Review, Kaplan and Powerscore books, but they confuse the hell out of me, they each tell me to do something different and they offer very little help. Also, I learn better by listening, in my entire UG Political Science BA (I finished all required classes for my degree, only gen ed left, i graduate next winter), i have not opened a book, I will graduate with at least a 3.45-3.5 from Oakland University, i've taken mostly 300 level classes and I've doubled my requirements for 300 lvl classes.

What i am asking now is, any recommendations on how to improve my speed and also, any recommendations on Prep Courses to take? Price is really not a problem if the methods of the courses are proven to improve performance, i rather spend 2K on going to Wayne State or MSU rather then UMD or Cooley ( i am really trying to stay in state).

I would appreciate any help i can get,

Thank You.

Do this: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=41657

Also, I'd recommend you not take full prep tests until you've mastered the question types.

Best of luck to you
