True or false and why

Postby JSRarri » Fri May 10, 2013 11:04 pm

Speed readers that trust their instincts and memories and answer LSAT questions quickly are the only ones capable of scoring in the high 170s and 180 range without time being an issue.

This sounds wrong. I'm mostly PTing in the low-mid 170s, but I'm convinced that it's mostly about gaining a complete understanding of the test. I'm working on improving my RC at the moment, but I've never really felt that it was about reading faster and memorizing more. I just think it's more about understanding the logic behind the test and being familiar with the patterns of correct/incorrect answers. There's a certain level of reading that's necessary, but I don't think it's too high for the majority of test takers to do well.

False. I would say competent readers are the only ones though.

I'd actually say a lot of those people are the ones who can't hit the high-170s because they refuse to slow down and actually approach the test in a way that makes sense. When I have a very intelligent student who is "stuck" in the low-170s, it's almost always because they read quickly and rely solely on their memories to get through the exam.

I read quickly, can memorize most things I read with a fairly high level of accuracy, and am pretty self-assured - when I'm taking an RC section, I slow down and check all my answers against the passage. It's how you guarantee a high score.
