Advice for a February Taker with limited space for books

Postby JDndMSW » Thu Nov 08, 2012 9:48 am

Hi there, i have decided to retake the February LSAT.
My biggest issue is that I am currently doing Hurricane Sandy relief and am living out of a small suitcase. I definitely do not have room (nor access at the moment) to my Blueprint prep materials I used previously. I feel that I could use improvements in all areas especially since i haven't looked at any prep material in almost a year. I was curious given a lack of space for books which ones would be the most bang for my space. Another issue is I do not have a mailing address for packages so any help with that issue or advice on places in Jersey to get these books would be fantastic.
A little backstory on my LSAT history: I took an in class Blueprint course the summer of 2011. I tested in Oct 2011 and Dec 2011 and scored a 160 and a 162 respectively. I wasn't planning the Dec retake (had tried to get a refund) so the score increase was likely based on being able to relax.
I pretty much know what school I will be attending I am just hoping that if I can increase by just a few points I could get a lot more $$$.

You know who you look a lot like. Not BooBoo the bear but Madison Bumgarner from the SF Giants.

I think Velocity and 7sage are very online-oriented. I'm really only pro-paying for Velocity games though, especially if you've already taken a Blueprint class and are only looking for a few more points.

One really nice thing about amazon/kindle is that even if you don't have a kindle (or access to one at the moment) you can read books in your browser through their cloud drive (amazon - manage my kindle - go to book list - click "read now" on the flash pulldown thing to the right of each book). I prefer paper books but I do have Manhattan LR (my worst section by far) for kindle so I can pull up sections in my browser when things get slow at work.

Ya I think the Barnes and Nobles nearby has Manhattan books so I think I will grab some of those and hopefully that will help. I don't have a solid internet connection and I will be doing a lot of studying on long van rides.
Also I love your tar, I still go on a play games at times. I have over 2 million Neopoints.
