Don't worry! Us. anxiety-ridden LSAT takers will have at least 10 pencils with us sharpened to a deadly point that you can borrow. I sat for Dec and had at least 6 on my desk at all times. LOL


LOL like I'm sharing my Palominos. :wink:


lol +1

Bringing a pencil to the LSAT is like selecting a shirt for a big job interview. Should require at least a little bit of thought, and neglecting to bring one altogether is just awkward for everyone.

Question for free is illegal, so don't do that.
There are really great explanations on the Manhattan Forums for individual questions, but I don't know of any video tutorials besides the paid ones for LR/RC

Well I wouldn't obtain my JD with intentions to of illegally obtaining free LSAT questions haha, I am not the kind of individual to cheat my way to the top, haha. Its extremely expense to obtain Cambridge's Explanation, there must be more affordable options, not every perspective law student, has exponential financial means, I would imagine there are individuals that sell worthy LR/LG Explanations for a reasonable price.

Thank you!


First I'd like to congratulate you on doing the smart thing by not taking the LSAT before you are absolutely ready to. Good job. Those 3 takes may sound like a lot but they can go quick.

As for the books, here is what people recommend generally:
-The LSAT Trainer by Mike Kim: for a solid foundation
-The Manhattan Logical Reasoning Guide: to supplement the more specific chapters of the Trainer
-Cambridge Bundles - PTs 1-40 split up by question type: absolute MUST. You can get them in PDF form on the Cambridge website. This is for drilling and you cannot go without it.
-http://7sage.com/logic-game-explanations/: FREE! 7sage is a logic games master and he takes you through each and every logic game ever step by step. This is to supplement your LG drilling
-Every PT 40-70

Optional
-Manhattan Logic Games and Manhattan Reading Comprehension Strategy Guides: the Trainer might be enough but some people (like myself) really like the Logic Games guide by Manhattan and you can never have too much Reading Comp
-Blueprint LR/LG Bibles: never read them, ask jaylawyer



Thank you so much! I will be looking into all of those! :)

Very wise decision, its all about your study material, motivation to achieve your goals, optimism, and drilling. I have the Powerscore Bibles LG/LR, The LSAT Trainer, ALL LSAC PT's, the LSAC Super Prep Book, and a vast amount of study guides from various 180'ers (especially TLS1776), also I made several Excel data sheets of break downs on my scores, as well as a Dry Erase Board in my room for weekly goals. The key is from what I understand based off Mike the Author of The LSAT, is that this Test is completely learnable, but you must be willing to not only put the work and time into the Test but learn its nature, find your weakness and grow with them, and find your strength's, and retain them. If you would like I am approximately one month into my Prep work, and I am starting a study group for June 9th test takers, if your interested to join or perhaps anyone else for that matter, please pm me. I hope this helps.


Thank you! I am currently looking into getting the Powerscore Bibles and the LSAT Trainer. Sounds like you are very motivated to get that 180 and I wish you the best with that. I want to work as hard as possible to get a high LSAT score. I think my problem right now is getting the hang of things. I don't really know where to start.. I sorta feel like a lost puppy. :cry: As for your study group for the June 2014 LSAT, I would love to join! I will pm you now.

It can be extremely overwhelming at first, but just by being on TLS you're off to a much better start than 95% of the people that will be taking the LSAT in June. Take it one day at a time. You'll get the score you want.

How do you guys keep track of hypotheticals that you used for previous questions on LG? Do you circle them or box them or notate a hypo in any way? Or can you just find it easily on your paper? I am thinking of experimenting with circling hypos so I know where they are on my paper.

I just did a game that took me about 30 minutes (hey, I have only been drilling grouping games for a week) that could have taken me about 15 if I had known how to use my work from previous questions.

Separate note:

I feel like I am improving on LR, even though my drilling record isn't anywhere near perfect, especially on level 3 and 4 questions. But I do feel like I am getting better thanks to drilling (I have drilled flaw from Cambridge PT 1-40). I am DEFINITELY getting faster at LR, which is super-exciting. Getting faster at sequencing games (been drilling those for three weeks) but currently slow as hell at grouping games (been drilling those for about a week, as previously stated).

edit: I wish my TLS post count was where I was currently PTing lol

how the heck have y'all been matching up LSAT trainer with the cambridge?

For example which set do I use to drill Lessons 5-8?

CAN someone also PLEASE link me the thing for blind review? I understand this is the most efficient way to drill but I cannot find the link anywhere.

The only thing you should be writing aside from your main setup and rule notations (and scenarios -- if you see them) would be hypos for conditional questions. They should be pretty easy to spot. Plus, short term memory is a beautiful thing. But if you're using a ton of hypos to solve a game/check ACs, chances are that you missed something in your setup. Most games can be effectively "solved" before you even look at the first question. Relying on hypos rather than initial deductions is typically an inefficient way of completing a game. Guaranteed your timing will improve overall if you spend more time on your setup and try to avoid using hypos for the questions, whenever possible.

Hey guys! Just wondering what everyone is averaging on time per week/day for studying?

I just moved back to Paris about three weeks ago and my time hasn't been ample. I'm thinking that I should be dedicating about 15-20 hours a week, but right now I'm only getting about five. I'm following the Trainer 16 study schedule though.

Right now, it doesn't feel like that's enough. I'm wondering if it would be better to move to an 8 week schedule and then spend the other 8 weeks just doing preptests and drills.

Any opinions?

For everyone a little anxious that you aren't PTing in mid 160s (probably such as myself? dunno where I stand): we still have 4 long months to go! HUGE strides can be (will be) made every single month.

Don't doubt yourself. We are TLS! We are better than everyone else, right? ....right? .............right? :) Seriously though, it is a beautiful thing that our minimum is about 90% of the country's maximum.

Thank you, WaltGrace, for the words of encouragement! I was just having crazy thoughts about postponing the exam to October because I'm not already PT-ing in the mid 160's, but you're absolutely right...we DO have 4 more months. That's a lot of time left.

What is everyone's advice over taking a practice test blind? I started taking one and, because I wasn't used to writing on the actual test (instead of scrap paper), I only answered four out of twenty-four questions. I freaked out and stopped the practice test.

I feel like I'll just get discouraged if I take one now =\

Thanks for the encouragement! I struggle with whether I have enough to reach my goal often. LG is the only thing holding me back. RC and LR for the most part are solid, but LG makes me wanna cry... Every. Single. Time! You're right though we've got TLS, time, and we're motivated so we can most defiantly do this! 180's all around :D

You very well may get discouraged, but then you'll get motivated. You'll know exactly where you stand and you'll have a feel for what the exam will be like and what you're getting yourself into. Even if you get a 146 (like me). You'll know you've got work to do, but you'll have a starting point. I took a blind LSAT (not recombined at all) and scored a 146, so you're making the wise choice in taking a blind PT. It was discouraging, but I knew I wasn't gonna let that 146 be the final score, so I made a game plan and now I'm on the road to a much higher score and understanding of the test. Not to mention knowing where you're starting gives you the satisfaction of making every point increase that much sweeter. At the end of this journey you can look back at that blind PT along with your LSAT score and realize you "started from the bottom, but now you're here"

PS- really bad attempt at a pop culture reference, I appologize.. I just couldn't resist

We can indeed! (But defiance is probably not the most appropriate mindset.)

In all seriousness though, it's very important for us to resist the temptation to bask in the luxury of time. Four months is ample time to make significant progress if, and only if, we use that time in the right way. But hours, in and of themselves, have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on our skill sets. Study well, study efficiently, and push through your perceived limitations. Do not bask in the luxury of time.

Agreed ^

Not that anyone misunderstood me, all I meant was that we HAVE the time but a correct approach to studying is necessary when given that time.

Hey all,

I have a question regarding the June exam in general.

Can June test be used for current acceptance cycle?

I took the LSAT last June, scored a 166, and was satisfied enough with my score to decide to not retake, and apply in the fall for this coming fall matriculation.

After discovering TLS, and being advised to not "waste" my 4.0x GPA, the standard response seems to be "retake and sit out a year".

I do not plan on sitting out a year. After consideration, and the virtual unanimous "RETAKE" responses, I am willing to retake the exam but not sit a year out. Does that make sense?

Are there tangible benefits to this strategy? Or am I grasping at thin air?

If a higher score in June 2014 has a chance of netting me $$ or acceptance off a WL for August 14, I would have to retake.

Does anyone know SOP when it comes to this situation?

Thanks in advance

Every. Single. Time! You're right though we've got TLS, time, and we're motivated so we can most defiantly do this! 180's all around :D


We can indeed! (But defiance is probably not the most appropriate mindset.)

In all seriousness though, it's very important for us to resist the temptation to bask in the luxury of time. Four months is ample time to make significant progress if, and only if, we use that time in the right way. But hours, in and of themselves, have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on our skill sets. Study well, study efficiently, and push through your perceived limitations. Do not bask in the luxury of time.



I definetly didn't mean to write defiance. This is why you shouldn't post from an iPhone... And agreed, we must not bask in "the luxury of time"
