Yeah, I think that you have the right idea. Essentially, for the questions that you struggled with or got incorrect, you just deconstruct the question and make sure that you understand why the correct answer was correct, and why the other answer choices didn't 'fit' as well.

for LG, just redo the game
RC: find line reference
LR: how do you divine why a choice is right?


For Logical Reasoning, I've had some success reviewing with 7Sages "Blind Review" Method.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPhj7pUi ... e=youtu.be (7Sage Blind Review Intro). He has like a 5-Video series of how to do it and taking it with a grain of salt and putting in some of your own twists it really helps in the LR Section.

For LG - I prefer Pithypike's Review Method...review what you do wrong immediately, waiting a day or two in between redoing the game. This really helped my ability in inference-making for solving games.

Manhattan has an LR forum that has helpful explanations to LR questions here: http://www.manhattanlsat.com/blog/index ... planations

Also you can youtube LG video explanations, sometimes it's helpful to see how other people do them. 7sage and Velocity both have LG videos.

Put in perspective to other incorrect answers, perhaps? Or try and use it to notice patterns in the LR themselves.

First, noticing these things should help you develop a sense of the test. However, you're missing two huge questions you need to ask yourself during review:

1) What about the wrong answer made me think it was right?

This will let you know how the LSAT tricked you. There was something enticing about that answer choice; otherwise, you wouldn't have picked it. Figure out what enticed you. Then, don't fall for that same trick again.

2) What about the right answer made me think it was wrong?

This will let you know how the LSAT hid the right answer from you. You dismissed that answer for a reason; that reason wasn't a good reason to dismiss the AC. Figure out why you did it, and then don't do it again.
