Just wanted to rave:

I'm still not 100% on logic games, but I'm making deductions relatively easily. I'm also completing games 100% correctly where I would have normally just started at them blankly (round table games, games with a ton of moving parts, etc)

Hi can anyone explain the second game from prep test 54? I got every single question wrong and I was doing only one question wrong per set before this one!

Did PT42 today, went -0 for the first time on a LR section, extremely pleased. consciously thinking about VAMPS throughout RC helped too. Needed a good day today to keep me motivated, I'll be taking PT40 on Friday.

This Manhattan LR strategy guide is so clutch right now. I really wish I had made the switch sooner. These aha moments though... Better late than later.

I just took a completely new LSAT and I scored 163 (finishing first LR -1 min, LG -3 min, RC -1 min). This was my highest previous prep score before june 2012. During the final 2 weeks I went from 158, which was the score I earned on june, to 161+ consistently on about 4 tests. During june's test I was cold and started shivering the whole test and I think that affected me a lot.

Anyway.. am I on the right track to think I should score at least 165 on at least 2 test to consider retaking in October worth the risk?

Bed time. Did a chapter of the LRB and some drilling couldn't finish all the weaken questions today. Tomorrow will be a new day. More LR drilling and chapter 5 of velocity. Haven't done any timed PTs yet, but I am feeling much better about this. Let's keep up the good work. Let's dom this test!

Sometimes I get hung up on one of the early ones. I panic a little, thinking I must be really dumb, and it makes it worse.
Really glad to hear about the -2 though!

Same thing happens to me. I feel really slow and not focus on the test. Yesterday I got -3 LR and -6 on the last one......... I was tired at the end.

-13 on fucking RC...I'd be better off nailing three passages and guessing the fourth. FML.

I'm gonna go cycling to burn off the anger, have some lunch and then review this abortion of a test.

just took my first preptest (58) since february and scored a 161 which is my highest so far. i've spent the last couple weeks jogging my memory on the basics so it wasn't cold. went -3 in LG and -6/7/8 in the other sections.

have you checked out the manhattan RC guide? i got it a couple weeks ago and have only done a quick read-through but i feel 100% more confident and that helped me get my highest score yet. not an impressive score, but i've improved from 149 cold to 161 in a matter of 5-6 weeks of studying. (3-4 weeks for Feb and 2 weeks now).

If any of you retakers live in the NYC area, we will be taking a practice test at 6pm at mid manhattan library. We will be located on the 5th floor. You're more than welcomed to join and use the time to do PT 40.

Boy... The struggle is real! I know exactly how you feel... RC is a sneaky mother #%^*%#.

I love that site. Sadly, they're shutting it down on 8/31 (see homepage - --LinkRemoved--).

2 alternatives I know of (but not as good in terms of ease of use):

http://www.scriblink.com

http://www.cosketch.com

Anyone know of any better ones? I'll be looking for a dabbleboard replacement soon and would prefer not to have to resort to scriblink and cosketch.

Sorry, espresso...when is fasting over?
I did PT54 yesterday and literally BLANKED on the LG...I actually wrote WTF in big letters across the page when I was done...you know it's bad when you are relieved to see the word "marzipan."
You will do better--keep your chin up.
