My plan of attack for Sunday is drilling a bit during the day, then going to the theater to watch Superman fight for justice. Then back at home in time for bed at 10. Somewhere in there ice cream will be involved.


Isn't that releasing on the 13th? :(

I'm more of a night person so there really isn't anyway that the test will ever be given during my peak brain hours but I am grateful that it isn't at 8 all the same.

I did the first game on PT 63 in 2:38. As long as there are one or two games like this on Monday, they can do whatever they want on the last two games.

Did 65 today, a test that I only saw once prepping for October.

RC: -3
LR: -0
LG: -1
LR: -2

94/174

The RC seemed pretty shaky but ended up being ok. IDK if I'll ever be confident on this section.

LR was pretty standard, and I derped hard on one question in LR2. Had I read the stem more thoroughly, I could have bumped my score a couple points.

LG was weird. The first couple games took me close to 9 or 10 minutes per. I was slugging through game 3 when I hit 5 minutes. I guessed on one and then flew through game 4. I only ended up with -1, but I didn't feel comfortable at all. Strange that the first two were tough and the last was a cake walk. Did anyone else get this sense.

I've posted four straight 174s. Wish I could hammer out the kinks, but I'm feeling confident for Monday. Taking my last PT on Saturday, and will probably just review and do light drilling.

Cheers everyone! We're almost there!

:shock: How is that even possible? As someone who typically is rushed or runs out of time in LG I am at a loss for words


I did the first game in 4 minutes, and I'm normally slow. I should have been concerned when I was finished with the second game after another five minutes. Screw you, game four.

Game 4 of PT 63 is horrifying. In fact, I forgot it existed until I saw it mentioned here. It is probably my most hated LG besides the snakes and the lizards.

I think I'm going to go through every game from 60 onward and do them over and over again. LGs after 61ish become significantly more difficult than the 50s.

#2, #3, #4 can be answered in seconds since you know H/P takes up one slot on each court, leaving only one possible free space on the appellate court (and everything else goes to trial). Correct ACs on #2 and #3 both try to cram an additional player on the appellate court. #4's conditional solves the whole diagram with H/P being interchangeable.

Yeah, I thought Game 3 was easily the hardest of that section. Thought Game 4 was cake. A bit unusual, but highly doable, even with limited time.

How do you guys handle the double paged questions for LG, do you redraw your diagram on the second page? Or refer back to the first page?

Had a pretty bad showing on PT67 today. Yikes. RC continues to kick my ass.

Fatigue and burnout definitely a factor, looking to review this today and take a FULL day off tomorrow. Take 68 on Saturday and review it, then light work on Sunday and game day Monday.

67 RC is a a bear. LG throws a lot of people for a loop, as well. On top of that, the test has a harsh curve thanks to the relatively easy LR. It can really punish people who have prepped a lot and have certain strengths and weaknesses.

68 was a much more pleasant experience for me.

I plan on doing every game from PT 60-68 tomorrow. I should do them timed, correct? And redo the ones that give me problems (obviously)??

Redoing LG sections from PT 60s is giving me a much needed confidence boost...dare I say it, I may even feel like I "got" this 8)

That's the easiest game ever in the history of games if you use your H/P to take up space. I don't think I've encountered a game easier than that one. Unfortunately, I fucked up on game 3 and went -2 for the section. A stupid misread of the stimulus.

Took PT 65 this morning:

LR1 -2
LG -0
LR2 -2
RC -4

Raw: 93 --> Scaled: 175. Very generous curve.

Found the games pretty difficult (esp. #4) but managed to scrape by. Two of the four LR mistakes were dumb (not paying attention), other two were legitimate misses. RC was interesting for me this time around though - I missed one question on each passage (for the total of -4), whereas I usually miss most (i.e. two-thirds) of my RC questions on a single passage.

Leaving work today, my boss told me I should plan on leaving a few hours early tomorrow so I can rest up for the LSAT. Insert good guy boss meme here.

Took 68 today. I got through the first 3 games in 13 minutes. Last one took my 20 although I was taking my time.


BTW, my last 6 tests- 177, 171, 180, 169, 173, 179.

I dare someone to match my inconsistency!

On which test did you get 169? Was it some really tight curve?

PT 55: sections taken separately today. No RC today, no review of answers after completing section in time left.

LR1: -3, 25 minutes. One dumb error would have been fixed if I reviewed.
LG: 27 minutes, -1
LR2: 22 minutes, 0.

I saw this before a few months ago. I want some of that LR2 on Monday. Fastest timed section ever, not that speed matters as long as its under 35 mins...
