Don't have the time to read through 46 pages of this thread lol so I'll go ahead and ask:

Is anyone else doing the whole drill the first 40 prep tests and do the last 25+ timed in test conditions? If so, around what time (like what month) are you going to start doing them timed? and like at what frequency (2 a week/3?)

Great work Rhymes awesome LR progression.

That's actually from Taxi Driver. He's totally focused, isolated, and training like crazy. Just like studying for the LSAT. Here's the clip.

Thanks DD, you too. We only had a two incorrect answers overlap (#13 and 18 on LR1). Hopefully that's a sign that we're both just making silly mistakes for the most part.

LG: -4 (#1, 2, 8, 15)
LR1: -3 (#13, 18, 24)
RC: -4 (#14, 25, 27, 28)
LR2: -1 (#14)

Thanks for the various opinions on note-taking. I've pared it back and am cruising through quicker now. Finished Random Ordering chapter, did all the Cambridge q's, going 37/39, finishing all q sets in less than four minutes. Continuing to drill BO games while moving on.

I'll be on the practice test schedule with all of you (hopefully) at the end of this month – got our wedding reception in two weeks and that's taking up quite a lot of time/focus. I'm on vacation now (one of the benefits of being a high school teacher), so I've got more time to prep.

On break...LG kicked my ass on this one smh, especially game 2, which I figured out how simple it was after moving on to the next section FML. I know I did a little worse on each section so far than I would have had they been individual sections, but I think that will be cured with taking PT's more consistently. Praying for a 162 at this point...Ashamed with this performance :oops:

I was wondering if you guys could give me some help with how I should approach the Lsat. I was originally planning on taking the Lsat in June, but now I'm thinking about moving it further down to October. I have already bought the PS LG Bible and I'm half way through with it. I'm strongly considering taking a power score course from April - June, and then using the rest of the summer to work on the remaining practice tests and sharpen the skills I learned from the course. My fear is that by taking the practice course in April-June, and having already completed all of the Bibles before then, I wont have enough resources left. I graduate in May so I have all summer to study. Should I take the course in June and just work with old materials and the remaining PTs I'll have remaining? Should I think about studying independently and then taking a course in August (dont know if i will be able to at that point because I might be moving in September)? I have alot of time to study, but I want to make sure i take the best approach. There's also the option of sticking with the June date. By then, I will have completed all three PS Bibles and the course. I'd much prefer to use the summer to study as well.

I was told that after taking the PS course, there will still be 24 PTs remaining to use. Does anyone know what those tests are? Thanks for all the help.

PT39:
LR:-9
LG:-12
RC:-8

Raw:72
Scaled:160

Very surprised by LG, don't think I've ever gotten 12 wrong. I guess all the time spent on RC really took away from this. I'll be more consistent with LG prep going forward.

Best LR combined in a little while for a full PT, and same with RC, although when drilling RC I hadn't gone worse than -6 for a while. I was drilling older tests, so that may have something to do with it.

Goal for next PT is 80. You all at the review tonight. What time did we agree on?

170+ I'm coming for your head!! :evil:

On my PT 39 break now. How is everyone doing this? 4 or 5 sections? And if 4, break after the 2nd or 3rd? I am on a break after section 2 of 4, probably will move to 5 section PTs in like a month.
