starting in mid-november, i decided to prep for and take the feb LSAT. i went through the powerscore LRB and LGB so far, reading the material and doing the practice problems, and have done two PTs during each weekend.
i have a demanding full-time job, and responsibilities at home, so the time i spend studying is limited, and needs to be very focused.
with that said, my highest PT was 155, and i have been hovering around 149-155, without them even being timed yet! (i am planning on taking timed PTs starting in January.)
i know i haven't drilled down on the LR question types yet, which i am planning on doing once i finish the powerscore RCB, but does anyone have any suggestions? i'm pretty comfortable with the logic games, but always seem to get around 10 wrong on each LR section, and RC section. this is pretty discouraging, but i figure i just need to put in some time to really understand all the LR question types, and i am shooting for a 165. the higher, the better, of course, but i feel like this is realistic goal for me given the amount of time left.
If you're feeling rushed on your LR sections, you could try is guessing on the last 5 or so ( I would guess the same letter for each). This would allow you more time to focus on the others, and hopefully you'll get 1-2 of the ones you guessed on correctly. I'd only do this after you've tried everything else (drilling, diagramming etc...)
Try it on some PTs before test day. If it helps, use it!
Keep practicing though, I have a feeling you'll see much improvement before Feb.
