LSAT Prep Course Timing (In Relation to Test Date)

Postby John_rizzy_rawls » Sun Nov 25, 2012 7:03 am

I'm retaking the LSAT in June 2013.

Given that I am fairly familiar with the exam (4-5 PTs), would it be best to take a prep course (probably TM or PS) in the 2 months leading up to the LSAT (April-June) or a few months beforehand (Jan-Mar) then spend those last few months purely doing PTs/review?

Note: I'm aiming, realistically, for a 171-175.

Thanks!

Where are you now after those 4-5 PTs?

Take more PTs and self-study. If you're at a 170 after 4-5, you should be at your goal by the time you take 15-20.

Sweet, thanks. I mainly need to get faster - give me an extra hour/hour and a half and I could pull a 177 now. I just need to speed up and absorb more of the LR question types.
