Effective strategy for the October LSAT

Postby Ende » Sun Jul 22, 2012 6:00 pm

My objective is 170 +. I have a target school, and 3 fall back schools. If my last diagnostic is not in the range of all 4 of those schools, I will delay the exam and take it December,2012.

I am curious, as I have 36 actual LSATS on my hard drive, including the 4 that come with the course. I've read a lot about using these exams to prep. I'm wondering how to use them as a supplement to the course I'm taking now, which is Testmasters.

I was thinking of going to Fedex, make 3 copies of each exam I have, break them apart, and use them accordingly in conjunction with the material Testmasters provides.

Also, I'm wondering when to start taking full diagnostics on my own using the material, as in 1 LSAT a week leading up to the exam?

Anyone with experience with this, I'm all eyes/ears. Tomorrow is the first class for the course, and I definitely want to hit the ground running considering the disaster of my first diagnostic.

Thanks!

You should study using the following strategy:

1) Mastery
2) Timing
3) Endurance

Do this for LG/LR/RC. After you are done, you are ready to take PTs (2-3 a week).

As you'll see with your TM course it is recommended to start working in supplemental PT's after the eighth lesson; until then you will have a breadth of lessons, drills, and more than enough actual LSAT questions to effectively study.

try not to stress out thats probably the best advice when studying for the lsat, do what the instructor tells you at the beginning, then you'll have a better grasp of how to continue. everyone is different, you know your study habits the best and you know what works best 4 u

Well, I just got out of lesson 3, and I think TM is just not for me.

It's not the methods they are teaching, but its the speed of the course. I'm still trying to learn lesson 1. I did speak with a tutor who came well recommended, and I start with him on Friday.

I just can't keep up with the course speed. I really wish I would of known this, because I'm pretty much out the money spent.

A lot of people were really helpful in another thread I posted, but I think starting slow and gradually moving up is more for me.
