Another question about diagnostic improvement

Postby akasabian » Mon Jul 09, 2012 12:59 pm

Hey,
I've just completed my first diagnostic (158 on Feb 2010 test) and I'm trying to get a sense of the potential/average improvement I can expect by the Oct LSAT. I know it is all based on the way I study/prep for the LSAT, so here are some basics:

I'm just starting the online Testmasters (testmasters.net) course, since that is the best course for my schedule.
I'm going through LG/LR Bibles, and then going through them again (and again).
I'm planning on studying at least an hour and a half to two hours a day at a minimum (depends on my daily schedule).

What kind of improvement should I be striving for? I'm obviously trying to reach a goal of 180, but what would be a more realistic improvement that I should be happy with, given the above information?

I had the same diagnostic. After about a month and a half of studying I'm around a 164, however I think it'd be much better if I could fix a few crucial errors I seem to continuously make. I don't think the low 170s is out of the question for me (and if we are anything alike as our scores would suggest, for you either) since there is still ~3 months left until test day.

180. Don't settle. Expect nothing less of yourself.

My diagnostic was a 159, and I only spent a month preparing (oh, the woes of not knowing TLS) before the June test; I scored a 170 on the real thing. I'm retaking for that 180.
You're already on the right track. Fight hard for it, and any score you want is possible.
