recommended 6 month study plan

Postby rhb5r » Sun Sep 02, 2012 8:25 pm

I'm planning on re-taking the LSAT in June of 2013 and I want to start studying in January.

Can anyone recommend a good 6 month study plan?

I'm in a similar shoes as your, albeit June '13 will be the first test. I've outlined the following for me.
**************************************************************************
Month 1 & 2: Read Bible/Prep Books (approximate schedule)

TAKE DIAGNOSTIC (I used the free June 2007 test)
Week 1 -Read LG Bible
Week 2 " " "
Week 3 -Read RC Bible
Week 4 -Read LR Bible and/or Manhattan LR
Week 5 " " "
Week 6 " " "
Week 7 " " "
Week 8 Review/buffer week to finish

Month 3-6: Work through preptests (I purchased them all, and divided them into 2/week plus review for most of the month, until the last month when I'll do 3/week. I also bought a Princeton LSAT book to tear off a section to use as an 'experimental' for each test)

Week 8 PT 28, 29 (this would look like:
M: PT 28
T: Review PT 28
W: Rest/supplemental material (maybe go back to one of the Bibles for a weak section)
Th: PT 29
F: Review PT 29
S: Supplemental material and/or reading of New Republic, Economist, or some other academic publication to get mind in the RC mindset
S: Rest )

Week 9 PT 30, 31
Week 10 PT 32, 33
.
.
.
Week 19 50, 51
Week 20 52, 53, 54
Week 21 55, 56, 57
Week 22 58, 59, 60
Week 23 61, 62, 63
Week 24 64, 65, 66

GAMEDAY
*****************************

Now, I don't know how many PT's you've already used, so you could switch out which PT's you actually have, since this schedule only uses about 30 of the PT's. And if you've already read the Bibles or MLSAT, then you could have more room for PT.

Just a template.

* Plan to devote up to a month working on only Games, then only LR, then only RC. You can mix in section drilling as well. This will do wonders for your pattern recognition and overall abilities on each of the sections. Refer to relevant test prep company guides or explanations as needed, but don't rely on them to guide you through the material.

* DONT TAKE THE PTS IN ORDER!!!!!!!!!!! The worst possible thing you can do is go 5 months without seeing the 15 most recent LSATs. You want your benchmark to be the LSAT as it is today, not the LSAT as it was in 1992 or 2002.
