Is 150 where you got after studying a lot?

I improved from a low 150s to low 170s on Preps. I scored considerably less on the real LSAT. If you have studied your ass off (6months, all bibles, 25 hours a week, and competed the kaplan mastery book(is that how its titled?)) and 150 is the best you can achieved, I sincerely see little chance of you attaining 170+.

Good luck!

Try the ManhattanLSAT LR book. It really helped me.

I didn't say it was certain that he wouldn't score 170. Its certainly possible you can achive 170+ but with the scenario I put out (if true), how likely? I'm just being honest. Everyone wants to achieve 170+ but only 2% does. If you have a lot of time and money and attending law school is your dream, I would suggest you devote yourself to studying aiming for that 170. I have nothing against you and I wish you do well on the LSAT. Good Luck.

PS I studied 3 months and never achieved 170+. I followed the pithypikes guide available on this website for the next 3 months and I ended up consistently scoring higher.

then you have a lot of room to improve. LG is usually the part that people improve the most then LR.

I'd recommend taking a break from timing full sections for two months. I would drill LR by type - if you work on Weaken questions one day, work only on Weaken questions. Give a full day or two to each type of question - break them down and pore over every word. Know why each wrong answer is wrong and why the credited answer is correct. Take notes, review the notes.

Same thing on games, do as many as you can untimed. Do them over and over again like a robot.

RC - toughest for me to improve; I tried a number of diff. strategies until I found one that I was most comfortable and confident using.

He can do both, so far as LR is concerned. Clock how long it takes you to answer each question type accurately. For this you'll need a stop watch; I added one to my computer. As soon as you finish the question, stop the clock and check your answer. If you're anything over 1:20, you should probably focus your prep toward improving on those type questions. I made a game of it. It's perfect with cultivating the "attack" and pacing you'll need for the LSAT.

With RC, you've got to push yourself, albeit in a short time, to a place in your mind where you love reading EVERYTHING, I mean everything. I know it sounds crazy, but it works. Whenever there is an opportunity for you to read, read. Put the CC on your television, turn off the sound, and read a program or two. Find a novel and read it nightly. Read articles in The Economist, on NPR, the BBC, the Times. Focus on diversifying your reading as well. Read a Science article from one site, a Global article on another, a Business one on the third, then a Law or Political one on the last. As you're reading, smile and tell yourself you love to read. Also, go back to doing what we learned to do in grade school; put your finger under each word, only now focus on quickly moving your finger from left to right as a means of increasing speed, yes, even on the computer screen. It works. Before you know it, the LSAT readings will be like reading grade 2 stuff. Moreover, you'll find yourself saying, " I read about this before," and you become all the more engaged in the readings.

LG, you're fucked. Lol :lol:

U definitely can,dont listen to people who are pessimistic,search ,check every single lsat book and online course,lsat is not a test that checks what u know it only checks how well u separate the wrong answers from the right one,so with this idea in your mind find the right way to approach this test and dont listen to others,everybody becomes sort of devious when it comes to a 170 on the lsat,just because they didnt do it doesnt mean u cant do that,good luck.
