You'll have to re-learn certain concepts anyway, so you might as well treat it as if you haven't studied before. The format has changed a bit, as well (I know - June '11 wasn't that long ago) so take into account shifts in logic game design and question word choice.

There's been minimal changes since 2011 - so few that I don't think it would make much of a difference to anyone other than a 175+ scorer or a teacher of the LSAT.

To OP - definitely start from scratch. At worst, you'll be reviewing stuff you already know, which isn't a waste of time.
