Self-study from 155 to 165 from now to December?

Postby bobbypin » Sat Oct 13, 2012 1:49 am

Of the 5 prep tests I have taken, I have generally scored 155. My RC scores are between -5 and -8, LG between -5 and -8 (lower if I am able to finish on time), and LR is killing me with between -8 and -14.

I own the Powerscore LGB and LRB as well as the Manhattan LSAT LR, LG, RC books. (RC and LG are in the mail)
I have all of the prep tests.

Help me make a plan please. Where should I start?

Thanks!

I would be uneasy using both the LGB and the Manhattan LG book. I'd pick one. Same for LR, RC.

Go through each Bible/book methodically, drilling as you go. Then mix up PTs and drilling. Something like that. Tailor the plan to your particular needs obviously.

I used the PS LG Bible and the PS LR Bible. I felt like I still needed to improve by RC after working through the PS book and, based off of recommendations here, I bought the Manhattan book. I felt like the addition of Manhattan to the Powerscore book helped me. As for score, IDK, waiting to get last Saturday's results back.

Its definitely achievable! I was in the same boat as you and in the last few weeks before the October test was PTing consistently at 165. I always had trouble with timing on LG too. I started doing individual logic games and giving myself less time than I would be given on test day (I would only give myself 8 mins). The LG bible from powerscore also gives a lot of good methods for LG that should cut out some mistakes on that section. I think the key is just to take as many practice tests as possible and review the ones you miss, this helped me a lot with LR. You've got more time than I did so you could bring it up even higher! Good luck!
