Where do you guys get the material to drill by specific question type/game type etc.? Is it just the Kaplan Mastery book?
How often should I be taking full PTs?
Most importantly: what is your typical daily/weekly study schedule like? I've been studying for 1-4 hours a day since mid-July, but I work full-time so it's hard to really set and keep a schedule. Any semblance of structure you guys could recommend would really help out.
- I was a Kaplan-er and have recently scored my friend's Kaplan stuff. But many other places sell - what I think TLS'ers call - bundles. Search online.
- There is no good way to answer this question without more information. Are you familiar with all question types? LGs? RC? are you retaking? Etc. Answer to these and we can lay out a study plan for you.
Mine is light drilling throughout the week and one 8-section PT day. Weekends off. If you have a problem area, keep your focus on that, but still drill your strengths. My schedule, for instance:
I am -1/0 on LG so I'll drill certain types once or twice any given week and then I'll take a section or 2.
On LR I'm having trouble with section management so I'm going to do a lot more sections. The type I have trouble with is parallel reasoning, so I will definitely drill those.
On RC I have trouble with difficult passages. Usually instead of missing 1 or 2 on all passages, I'll miss 4 on one passage and none on the other. I do RC prep by doing a lot of extra reading and drilling difficult passages.
BUT - your study plan can (should) be completely different than this if you are not familiar with the types and, in general, the LSAT. I have been studying this thing for over a year now and it's all about precision, focus, section management, and execution for me. There's really nothing that I haven't seen before and nothing I'm not prepared to handle.
