Am I doing this in the right order?

Postby e_mac7 » Sun Jul 01, 2012 2:49 pm

I'm taking the LSAT in October and started prepping since Mid-June.

As of right now, I'm studying the LRB extensively and signed up to take a TM Online course this summer. I took my first diagnostic at got a 141 hence why I've been burying my head in the LRB for hours a day to try to absorb everything in it. TM asked me to take a diagnostic again, just to gauge where I'm at and where I want to be at.

I've taken a look at various forums on LSAT prep here and it seems like the bibles are pretty well recommended. I'm wondering, should I be taking practice LR sections while concurrently studying the LRB? I want to wait to take the TM diagnostic until I finish the LRB to see if it helps boost my score in those sections a bit.

I want to make sure I"m studying smart and with 90+ days to the LSAT, time is precious. So, anything I'm doing wrong or could improve on? I haven't even begun to tackle games yet simply because I'm trying to wrap my head around LR first. Also, I've always been a fast test taker which was either hurt or helped me so timing on my first diagnostic was not a problem--it's more getting the concepts down :shock: . Any other books besides the PSB that would help achieve that?

Thanks!! :D

Manhattan LR and RC are both pretty solid.

I would say wait until you are done with the LRB before taking any practice LR sections. No reason to burn through material when you don't understand the concepts yet.
