1-1000 Hours

Postby alexrodriguez » Thu Jun 06, 2013 3:27 am

How many hours should I realistically expect to spend studying?

I'd say I'm around 50-75 hours right now and it feels like I've barely scratched the surface.

And you don't have to make a new topic every time you have a question. People are more than happy to answer in the study threads.


What study threads?

Your still early enough in your young posting career that you can choose to stop being a troll, and actually be a productive TLS member.

I'm in about 200 hours so far and have improved from a low 150s to ~165-168, but I plan on reaching at least 500 hours by the October LSAT. That's because I'm aiming for mid-170s+ and started off in the low 150s. If my diagnostic were higher or my target score was lower obviously I probably wouldn't be planning on 500 hours. From what I've heard/read, it seems ~300 hours is pretty standard as an amount of time that will get you at or near your peak, thereafter you may or may not see diminishing returns, depending on your study method. I'm doing just about every PT released at least once if not two or three times by test date though.

It really comes down to how many points you want to improve to by test day. If it's only 5 you clearly won't need as many hours put in as if you're shooting for a 20pt improvement. Good luck!

Trent Teti from Blueprint suggests you do at least 300 hours.
