I failed hard at that section and the other ones remained what I was PTing at, so will focus my studies on getting LGs down. This will push me back a cycle, but worth it so look forward to posting here in the next few months!



We had similar results. I did great on LG, but sucked at LR. And scored lower than I did on all my PT's. My focus will be to maintain my LG while improving LR and RC.

Anyone else taking a course or is this group mostly self studies? I wonder if the $$ I'm considering spending on a prep will be better spent on purchasing more materials and studying on my own..

The course is only useful if you have problems with motivation. Otherwise, self study is the way to go, especially if you are an above average scorer.

how many hours are you guys averaging a day? im doing 4 hours a day so far...did 350 LR questions in the last 7 days (just counted off my calendar lol) and other crap that would take too long to write. Should i be doing more? After reading all the posts from the december thread of people saying they scored 7 or more points below their PT average im starting to get a little worried.

I am also preparing for another test, it depends on my schedule. I usually manage to complete a LG section in the morning, then couple ( up to 15) LR questions, after dinner I will do a RC section. So probably over 2 hours, but it could be longer because I don't time myself on LR and RC.
But I DO know I need to add more hours on, especially seeing Dec TLS takers wound up lower than their average PTs.

I am thinking about 5-6 hours.

Hi, I'm in.

Did testmasters, took october 2012, 168 (RC: -7 LR: -1 LG -5)
Studied LR and it's my strong suit. didn't study RC and LG adequately.
Shooting for 178+, last 3 scored PTs being (180 178 176)
Living near Torrance, CA. I'm open to meeting up with a dedicated study partner.

Going to use:
1. All PTs available
2. Powerscore
3. LSATQA.com
4. Hacking the LSAT by the Graeme, the reddit/r/lsat guy
5. Kaplan's explanations
6. Some testmaster stuff, although their textbook is mostly just questions

And maybe purchase other stuff like LSAT Clarity and Otis Comorau etc.

Right now I'm only doing ~4. But going to shoot for 12 hours per day, realistically 8~10/day.

PM me if you want to discuss anything lsat related,

Surely you mistyped this and meant 8-10 hours/week? And if you didn't, I admire your dedication, but HOLY SHIT.


Seriously lol...holy shit...i think this might be what it take to break into the 170s though...i did about 5 today...ill do 12 tmro and let you know how it feels :lol:

Just a reminder, please don't exhaust yourself.

I have a friend who did 12 hours everyday for two months and got a 170 for June 2012 LSAT. She said it was exhausting.....

But I guess that depends. Please do share with us how do you feel about it.

To be fair, I've probably been doing anywhere from 4-8/day for most of Christmas break, but I don't plan on, or think I'm physically capable of, sustaining this work ethic, for five months. And I'm doing timed sections of PT 7, February 1993, at the moment, I just ravaged LG with a -1 in 32 minutes, although it should be noted that I have taken one of the games, Dr. Yamata's appointments at least once, probably twice, before today in the LGB and Manhattan's book. I'll post more numbers when I'm through.


yea im taking advantage of having the next two weeks off to get through all the conceptual stuff so i can focus strictly on drilling when school starts. I doubt ill be able to do 40 50 hours a week with a full class load but ill sure as hell try

Ok...to set this up as an average for five months of study and per day hours (includes no days off, no finals, no social life)....bored so here goes some first grade math for everyone to ponder lol:

2 hours a day from today's date until the date of the test you will have completed 318 hours of studying.
3hours a day from today's date until the date of the test you will have completed 477 hours of studying.
4 hours a day from today's date until the date of the test you will have completed 636 hours of studying.
5 hours a day from today's date until the date of the test you will have completed 795 hours of studying.
6 hours a day from today's date until the date of the test you will have completed 954 hours of studying.
7 hours a day from today's date until the date of the test you will have completed 1113 hours of studying.
8-12 hours a day from today's date until the date of the you will have completed 1272-1908 hours of studying.

Account 1/3 of your prep sessions for miscellaneous fbing, texts, and other random distractions like having to pee.

Hey guys,

I was planning on applying this cycle (had all of my apps complete, minus the LSAT), however, I didn't do very well. Here's to sitting out this cycle, retaking, and applying.

Good luck with your studies!

Super lurk here. New to everything so all help/feedbacks are welcomed and encouraged.
Got a 164 and a 167 on my previous two dates with LSAT. Heartbroken. BUT will be back for one more this June.

Unfortunately I have already done all the PTs (thanks to Testmasters), but I am hoping fellow TLSers will help pushing me to the next level.

Cheers to 2013!

So the June curve is generally the worst. http://lsatblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/ea ... -june.html

Any idea why this is? Since it is predetermined (right?), I doubt it accounts for the later start time?
