Rate/Review My Routine for a 180 on the October LSAT

Postby champv17 » Sun Jun 02, 2013 2:28 am

Recently I dropped out of the June LSAT to study and prepare for the October LSAT. Please let me know if my plan has any flaws or if I can improve it. Thank you

Background:
Currently PT'ing in the low 160's
Read and took detailed notes on LG Bible and LR Bible
Currently in last week of Kaplan Course (Waste of time)

I have printed out every single PT

Plan:
1. Take a practice LSAT

LR- 2. Go over answers on LR with the Blind Review Method by 7Sage
http://7sage.com/the-blind-review-how-t ... at-part-1/

LG- 3. Go over LG with no time and analyze strategy.
4. Go over LG again using the 7Sage videos.
http://7sage.com/logic-game-explanations/

RC- 5. Review RC and work on developing a good strategy using Voyagers RC Strategy and 7Sage's memory strategy for the RC. Do at least one RC every morning timed, to develop.

Check answers with - http://www.lsatqa.com/ and analyze results


Please let me know where I can improve. I also have a lot of Kaplan drilling books that I would like to use. Currently I am only using the RC drilling book.



Thank you for the input.

This is an interesting idea. Does anyone have any more thoughts on it? I tend to think that is time better spent than perusing economist.com for 35 minutes.



The best way to improve RC is to... take RC sections.

Thank you for the support guys.

In response to the RC question - There are 67 Prep Tests * 4 RC each = 268 Total RC passages.

You can do one/two a day in addition to taking PT's and still have plenty left over.

Once you keep doing the RC's every day, you will start to notice the patterns. I'm just starting to notice a few.

It only takes 8 minutes.

Sounds really good. I hope you stick with it. Strong discipline is key.

I'm in a similar boat as you. I took LSAT last October and scored a :mrgreen: . I had registered to take it in June (coming Monday) having been PTing :mrgreen: but decided to withdraw my registration and try to get closer to the big 180 come October. I'm going to adopt 7sage's blind review strategy for LR (I love their LG explanations) so I'm glad you shared it.

One advice I have, that I am practicing personally, is to read an hour of The Economist or WSJ or whatever else daily to increase reading speed and focus. You, unlike me, might be awesome at RC in which case you should probably disregard this input and devote more attention to other areas.

I'm pulling for you buddy. Let's both get 180 :D

PS, this was my first post on TLS but I've been lurking forever.
