Drilling Most Strongly Support at the moment. Did PT 33 a few days ago and scored a mere 162 :/ AND I took breaks in between sections - not good. Went a bit overboard with time on the LG section as well which doesn't usually happen; games 2 and 4 took up a lot of time. My RC score was abysmal; haven't really worked on RC at all lately. No excuses though. I can't be having the same score on RC in June. Both LR sections went alright although I'm of the opinion the earlier PT's have more obvious wrong answers than the more recent ones so I don't know how accurate these scores are. Plan on doing another PT this week. I've also been following the LSAT Blog 6 month study plan (first few weeks is focused on LG) and have been doing games almost everyday - averaging about 8 mins and -0/-1 each game.

Running through all the RC passages timed in Preptests 29-38 this week; re-drilling all the games timed; untimed drilling my weakest LR question types then its timed sections of 39-50 until 51-62 comes in the mail and its game time ladies and gentleman. With school back in play and my classes being easy as fuck, I am at the library a lot more initiating beastmode for June. WHO GON STOP ME, HUH?

My GPA is absolute dog shit cause of issues out of my control, so hopefully I can explain that in personal statements. But aiming for a 172+ as well, FINGERS CROSSED WE BOTH END UP AT UPENN. But 178 would be absolutely incredible, JUST DON'T LOSE FOCUS, eyes on the prize, all those other inspirational corny quotes :)


This test is so learnable. We are all going to be fine, as long as we put in the time and don't drive ourselves nuts with fear/anxiety.

Ordered my Powerscore Logic Games Bible. It'll be here on Wednesday. Other than that, I don't have a particularly firm idea of how I'm going to schedule my prep. I prepped only lightly/moderately for December (mucked around with bs Kaplan books, then got the Manhattan Logic Games book and took 10 oldish official PTs), but I want to take it more seriously this time. I need to put most of my energy into logic games... but it would probably be a bad call to ignore everything else. It's a bad feeling to eat LR/RC humble pie on test day. What would you guys recommend, if I want to average about 3 hours a day?

I lost time juggling which was which,

Thanks for the response and correction DD, I did make the distribution inference really quick.
But I did only marked the subset as XA FI till Q14, so I was almost lost and I had to look back and forth.

Then when I came down to Q15, I was like WTF???

Anyway, this game made me feel uncomfortable, and this is probably the only game makes feel so.

Plus I did a couple games in class last semester when I got bored, and I don't see why I shouldn't continue this semester with easier and less class.



That's pretty awesome! I wish I didn't slack off so much and that my GPA averaged around yours ahaha. You sound like a pretty intelligent guy - what's your goal for June?

studied 8:35 today so far... dinner, fill 10+ hours getting as much as done as I can, then rinse and repeat tomorrow.

Why does studying for 4 hours feel so much slower than playing starcraft for 10 hours lol Back when I used to play it it was like sit down in the evening, then boom! it's 8AM and I'm falling asleep fml

No pro bro.
Let's destroy game in June, and hopefully we can nail RC eventually.

Oh wow we've actually got more in common than I thought - my LSDAS (or however it's spelled) right around there, 3.3 maybe...retook 2 Fs to B+s but they count them, so they sucked my grade down like ridiculously. I was premed my freshman year too haha. Yeah let's go for that 180. It just sucks that I never realized how GPA would be so IMMENSELY important in everything I do. It sucks knowing that even if I work my ass off now and get a 180 I wouldn't be a strong candidate for HYS - there are just some things that I can't make up. Ah well.

I just wish I was drilling already so I could check like like you guys are. I'm gonna go through all of manhattan, powerscore (bibles, workbooks, and deconstructs), graeme blake's book (just got the first one to check it out), superprep, etc. I want to go through all of them comprehensively, reviewing them at least twice before moving on. So even though I study a decent amount time my progress feels ridiculous slow.

Lol, add a third in this camp! Pre-med courses + being irresponsible freshman semester brought what is otherwise a >3.9 GPA down to a 3.5. Blergh! Also had no idea my GPA would be tanked, was so disappointed when I first saw my LSDAS GPA. Here's hoping for 180s all around. ;D

And so the prepping before class begins...have class at 10 been in the library from 6 in the morning...reviewing all my wrong lr problems (reprinted them and breaking em down thoroughly). Yesterday was pretty damn productive. Prepped from 1-9: did like 8 games, an rc section, and 90 LR questions (mostly inference) difficulty 3. Plan is to have drilled everything by the end of february and then pt season starts. So far ive done about half the lr problems in cambridge (about 800/2000). Games, think ive done ilke 30-40 or so but im gonna repeat most of them. This week its a game type and two types of lr problems per day. rc section every other. Have fun this week guys and good luck with your prep .

Can someone clarify something: When people talk about "difficulty level 2" or whatever in drilling LR, are they talking about Cambridge actually classifying each problem as a certain level of difficulty? I haven't bought the Cambridge LR packets yet.

Also, is it possible to just buy certain subsets of the LR packets? For example, let's say I didn't need to drill "must-be-true" sections but needed something else.

1, Yes, cambridge lsat classifies every question with difficulty level 1-4, 4 is the hardest

2, Yes you can order different types of LR bundle, just click here: http://www.cambridgelsat.com/problem-se ... reasoning/

Good stuff! I think it's pretty damn awesome that you're being so dedicated, man when I was taking classes I never got up at 6am to study for even the classes that I was taking... keep the motivation up! I was feeling the temptation to go back to sleep but knowing that someone else is putting solid hours motivates me to give my best too.

Just reviewed a single LR section from the my prep-test, writing out explanations of why answer choices were correct in incorrect on any question I either got wrong is was unsure about. If I am still unsure after writing out explanations and taking another crack at the questions, I go to the Manhattan LSAT message board and look at their reasoning very very closely.

I highly recommend this approach, I feel as if it is increasing my understanding of the section immensely.
