Scoring differently during practice and taking the test...

Postby missionimpossible » Sun Sep 02, 2012 8:33 pm

So I'm planning on taking the October LSAT and I have been scoring in the 160's range. I usually get the logic games right, but I miss 5-6 LR questions each time. The problem is that the questions I'm missing are 1 and 2 star questions. When I practice LR I get the 1 and 2 star questions right every single time, but when I take practice tests I miss a bunch. I get the 4 star questions right though. And it isn't a specific question type I am missing. Any tips on how to fix this?

I have been in a similar situation and I realized for me that it was due to misreading/speed reading. When I take the time to read slowly and carefully it usually fixes that problem. I would do a review of the questions you get wrong and think about whether it's a logic skill ( which seems unlikely since you're getting all the big dog questions right) or if there is some bad habit you have when plowing through the easy questions or something else.
