I saved the the most recent lsat tests for this final week of review.


I'm doing this. Did PT 63 today, then doing 64 Tues, 65 Wed, 66 Thur, 67 Fri, and 68 Sun.

Yes, it was 57. Its not exactly hard but it is more or less time consuming.

Best case order: LR1, LG (real), LR2, break, RC, LG (exp)
Worst case order: RC (real), LG (exp), LG (real), break, LR1, LR2

Did anyone find the LR2 section of PT63 particularly confusing (as in some of the stimuli were poorly worded)? I went -5 on LR2 (which I haven't done on an LR section in forever), and when reviewing I found out my mistakes were simply b/c I misunderstood the stimuli. Rest of the test was fine (LR1 -1, LG -0, RC -2). The -5 on LR2 dropped my score down to a 172; would've had a 174-177 otherwise.

Off the top of my head I can't think of one, but the last game in PrepTest C I couldn't figure out to the point I had to stop and just search up the explanation on 7Sage. I couldn't conceptualize the game during my first go around, but after watching the video it made things a lot more clearer. Luckily it's not a type of game we see too often. Also, stained glass + dinosaurs is overrated imo in terms of the rep it gets for its difficulty. I'm sure there are harder ones out there.

Yes it is helpful. And I barely remember what I had for lunch two days ago, let alone the answer or stimuli for a passage. I mean sometimes the information seems familiar, but that also happens everytime I see a generic LSAT question invoking traffic speed, vervet monkeys, a writer combining languages, literally anything about meteors, space or extinctions, or the enforcement/unjust treatment of legal theory


My favorite is the responsibility of a CEO to shareholders.

Yep. LR2 was not kind to me. I thought the last 2 reading comprehension sections were abnormally hard. I somehow went -0 on the last passage, but missed 4 on the 3rd :(

I think my best would be LR-RC-LG-break-LR-(experimental). Hopefully order won't actually matter test day. Only thing I'm worried about is getting two RC sections!

And Alzheimer's. And nature vs. nurture. They love that shit, but I really think there's just a go-to guy at LSAC for space questions/passages, because I think every four PTs at least, there's a meteor/extinction question.

I just picture a conference table full of people lead by an a badass, think full metal jacket, leaning over people's shoulders and yelling about how their potential questions and answers aren't good enough.

Yeah it is. I just kept hoping they'd lose, not because I dislike the Heat, though I'm not a fan, but because we all know that if they didn't even make it to the finals, Lebron would put up unbelievable numbers next season and push even harder for that ring.

I think the simple fix here is PTs. I have been doing two RC sections in every PT for the last 20 tests or so and it no longer holds any fear for me. After 7 months of study I feel like I am actually peaking just right for this test.

Here's to that being the case a week from now.

True, though it's undeniable that he pushed hard this year and had an unbelievable season - I hate the Heat but think they deserve the title this year. Also, did I call it or what?

There's no stopping the Heat this season, you'll be fine. Expect the series to go 7 though

So your completely ignoring the advice from people to take it easy this week? Hmmm, what is your reasoning? Should I follow your lead?

Different things work for different people. I find that if I take more than 2-3 days off, I get a little rusty. Taking one a day keeps me sharp.

New high score! Just took the December 2009 test

Section 1 LG: -2
Section 2 LR: -3
Experimental LR: -1
Section 4 LR: -2 (5 minutes left!)
Section 5 RC: -4

Raw Score: 90/101, LSAT Score: 172!

I felt really good about everything except one passage of RC where I missed 3 questions... damn! But I would be MORE than happy with a 172 on the test, so no complaints. I'm going to sleep well tonight and then go over the questions I got wrong after work.

Congrats, further up and further in. This is a great time to be getting your high score.
