After a 173 on pt 53, I've went 164,166,164,169 on pts 55,58,51, and 60 respectively. I'm taking a pt every Wednesday and Saturday, and will continue to do so up until June. I'll probably start adding an experimental section next week.
I'm still trying to find an ideal way to warm up before each test, because my first section (which has been LR on each of the tests I've taken) has been my worst overall section scoring wise. Anybody have any advice on warming up before taking a pt?
Good to have you back. I think the warm up is a very underrated part of prep. The issue is that you have all this knowledge about the LSAT, then you're confronted with a funky stimulus/passage/game and all that preparation falls to the side and you just go off a gut instinct. Which is what LSAC wants, don't give them what they want. Before every PT I look at a couple old games, diagram them, don't do the questions, just diagram, look for inferences, then look at an old RC passage, not the questions, just the passage, and visualize the scale, do a few notations, come up with a sample answer for the argument structure, main point, what the author would agree with/where his voice is most evident, and get in the rhythm. I haven't really been focusing on LR because it's always been my best section.
Also, your scores are all over the place, no offense, but how effectively are you reviewing?
