7/1/2012

1. Logic games advanced linear (-0, -1, -2)--stupid mistakes.
2. Logic games basic linear repeat (-0, 1, -0)

I wish I could've done more, but the damn libraries were closed because of gay parade and Canada day long weekend.

7/1

Decided to order the Manhattan LR guide as I really like their LG guide. Not doing any more LR prep until I get the LR guide, which should be Tuesday. I'm planning on going through the entire guide and then doing 3-4 timed sections to check my strengths and weaknesses, then drill the questions that seem to give me the most trouble.

As far as today's studying, I completed chapters 5 and 6 of the LG guide (conditional reasoning and binary grouping), and then did 5 timed binary grouping games from PTs 1-20. Averaged slightly under 9 minutes, but I also averaged 1 wrong per game, some because I misread rules and others because I fucked up. Oh well, I hope with more practice I will get better at these, as they definitely seem harder than ordering games.

Couldn't do anything today. Library was closed thanks to the long weekend holiday. They really need to stop doing. I just cannot study at home :oops:

Library's back to regular hours today (Tuesday), so I promise that I will get back to my regular study routine--3 new logic games, 3 logic games repeats, 4 RC passages, LR questions and possibly a new chapter in the LR bible depending on how tired/exhausted I am.

Good luck everyone!

Goal: 170+

Only got a few hours of sleep but I reviewed the wrong answers I got for PT 53 LR1. My goal for today is to review the wrong answers I got for LR1 and LR2 from PT 57 as well.

I'd love to be a regular member of this thread. Glad I found it.

I will try to remember to post in here daily. Tonight I will do some more work in the Logic Games Bible. I read the introduction to the SuperPrep book from the LSAC, and now I'm reading the LGB (I'm on the Grouping Games chapter). After this, I plan to do the Reading Comprehension and Logical Reasoning Bibles, and then start taking practice tests (hoping to do a ton of them, but I only have 3 months left.... :cry: ). Frankly, I'm pretty scared about the October LSAT, but I signed up, so I have to take it.

I started studying about 2-3 months ago, but I've only made it this far so far. Hoping my studying pace will pick up in the next 3 months. I really want to nail a 170+ (155 diagnostic).

If anyone has any tips and suggestions for me along the way, please feel free to tell me. I love constructive criticism when it comes to the LSAT.

7/3 :
3 RC, 6 LG, 50 necessary assumption, 15 necessary and 35 flaw questions. I'm going to try and do my two timed sections tonight. Don't want to do too much tomorrow because my mind won't fully be there.

Worked on LG section. I feel extremely dumb right now! I watched video on how to solve different problems, think that I understand how to do it efficiently, and then do the problem.

Good part: I'm arriving at the correct answers. maybe its because I already know the answer though.

Bad part: I'm still taking at least 10 minutes to solve each game even though I have already seen an explanation for it. I wish there was a speed button in my brain that I could click 8)

1) 4 LG games basic linear repeats (-0, -0,-0 and -1). On the last one, forgot to identify the templates to do the game. This would've significantly saved me a lot of time.

2) Skimmed over RC bible & Manhattan's RC guide

3) 5 RC (-3, -4 WTF, -0, -0, -0). I was very depressed after the 2nd one. I started thinking about two acquaintances of mine who went to an expensive/private high school, enrolled in elite college within my university and eventually getting accepted to HYS. I started thinking maybe I should've followed their paths. Then I snapped out of my emo bull shit and got back in my concentration mode. Turns out, the reason why I fucked up on the second one so badly was because I fell into the trap of a boring topic (Medieval law) and just wanted to get the section as quickly as possible by guessing each answers.

4) Did about 5.5 sudoku puzzles.

I couldn't do any advanced games today because I left them at home :x

Anyways, going to gym now!

Nothing today. Crazy day at the office, had a home visit after work, and then had to go to urgent care. I have the next three days off work, plus the weekend, so I'll get caught up.

I am regretting not picking up a six pack on the way home.
