I've been studying since May and today I hit burnout. I feel like I'm not improving on LR at all. I just finished the section on assumption questions and the results were tragic. I was doing better last week! I'm afraid I'm running out of time to hit a top score before October.
If you're already prepping assumption questions (which should come pretty far along in your studies, as they're complex and require methods you'd learn with earlier questions), you're way ahead of the game. You still have plenty of time for October, including a short break. If you really have hit some burnout, it might be time to take a few days away from the material.
My question is... Is there anyone who felt this way but still scored high? Am I starting in the wrong place by learning how to do these questions before jumping in for prep-tests? How can I tell if I have burnout or if I just suck at this? Should I study more than 3 hours a day?
Yes, plenty of people.
That's exactly the right place to start - tackle the methods before diving headlong into PTs.
If your brain keeps drifting more and more, if it gets harder and harder to sit down and study, and if you see a decline in your ability to answer questions that you had no trouble with, you're burnt out.
The average study time is probably closer to 4 hours/day.
HELP. I feel like I know where I want to go but I have no roadmap to get there! Or I feel like I have a roadmap but it doesn't tell me that there's a bunch of Indiana Jones shiz in my way. I want to be successful.[/quote]
Awesome. Yes, there's definitely a lot of Indiana Jones shiz in the way for anyone prepping for the LSAT. Just keep cracking that whip.
And hope that there aren't any snakes.
