~1 month until February Test day, should i...?

Postby homie1515 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 4:42 pm

As you all know, there is roughly 4 weeks until test day in February. My question is this: Do I start PTing now until test day? Or should i go over LR questions by type for the remainder of this week, then PT starting next week??

I have read the MLR and MLG and im fairly confident in the LG section, but LR is a bit more difficult for me, especially when practicing questions by type it's a pain to find the answers.

Anyway, should I review LR by type or just start PTing? The last PT i took was over 6 months ago before i started my prep and i scored a 160, if that matters. And im trying to get a 170+.

Thanks

Edit:
I have every PT available also, just a fyi. Idk if that matters at all.

If the last PT you took was 6 months ago, then you have no baseline of where you are now. Take a PT as soon as you can, see what you get, then evaluate. If you aren't near 170, strongly consider waiting a cycle and taking more time to study.

Since you are planning on taking the LSAT in a month and thus won't be going through all of the PT's, take one that is more recent for a more accurate gauge (LG and to a lesser extent LR have changed since PT1, and RC obviously has the new passage/response thing).

PT PT PT. The superpreps are really old. I'd suggest starting with 30 or so and working your way into the 60s. DO LOTS OF TESTS. Remember to closely analyze all of your wrong answers and make sure you're learning from each test. Good luck!

Exercise your timing by doing full sections in 25 minutes. Then PT and PT some more, take more recent ones for comparative RC.
