what LSAT PTs should focus on?

Postby caruiz93 » Mon May 27, 2013 10:07 pm

I am taking the october 2013 lsat and i am going to start self-studying at the beginning of june. i am giving myself the month of june to rest. I am planning on buying the Manhattan set of 3 books and considering the powerscore bibles. I know that there are like 68 old LSATs out there to practice from but i doing want to buy all of the just for the hell of it. i want to buy what will be most helpful. Would it be more beneficial to buy maybe the past 20? or do people usually go through all of them?

generally, the first 40 are accessed through cambridge bundles which you can buy online, where you drill questions by type. When it comes to taking timed practice tests, people usually start at 40 or 50 and work their way up to the most recent.

I'd suggest mixing up the PT order then redoing the most recent ones closer to the test date. My schedule went something like, speaking in terms of months, 40s and 60s, 50s and 60s, 40s and 50s, and whatever's left and redoing the 60s plus back-back tests during the last month.

I like this strategy. I'm drilling Cambridge packets right now, starting PTs in a month. Care to share your LSAT score? Pm me if you wish.

4 months with about 3-5 hours of study time daily? i though that was the agreed upon study time on TLS. Also, Ill be a junior in the fall so i will still have time to retake if i don't get the score i want (not to say i am banking on that)

for any one that has gone through it before, should the manhattan 3 pack suffice? or should i go ahead and get the powerscore bibles as well right off the bat?

Are you serious bro? Are you trolling? Do you really think 4 months isn't enough time?
