How well do you do on UNTIMED pts?

Postby hukchobo » Thu Jan 24, 2013 1:38 am

My goal is to consistently get -0~-1 on untimed LR/RC sections before I start doing timed tests but I was wondering how people who score 175+ consistently on timed pts do on untimed pts.

Is it a good strategy to consistently get -0~-1 on untimed pts before starting timed ones?

I'm currently averaging -5~-2 on untimed LR/RC sections (average time to complete each section is b/w 45-50 minutes but im taking more time than necessary just so that I am 100% sure each answer choice is correct or incorrect and explaining, either in my head or taking notes on the test, why it is correct/incorrect)

I am planning to take the June test and have gone over the Manhattan LR/RC books once (started studying for the LSATs about 2 weeks ago)
Games are not a problem at all.

Thanks

i'd worry about burning through recent tests.

untimed is fine, but don't use pts if possible. do some bookwork or whatever else you're going to do, and save the pts for pulling everything together. over time, you'll start doing less in the books and more pts.

PTs 1-40 ought to be broken up into questions by type (LR and LG) and drilled or done "untimed," if you will. RC for these can be drilled as well, but improvement is tough but manageable. As for the last 25+ LSATs, do em timed yo.

Time everything in LSAT prep, even drills.
