So yesterday I purchased all the Cambridge LR and LG questions from PT 1-38.

Today in the mail my 19-28 preptests came in as well as the 29-38 preptests.

So I can officially start Steve Schwartz' 7 month day by day plan as well as drill by question type or logic game. I'm thrilled!

...and I can't believe how much money I've gone through for all this stuff...

You'll kill October Cardoza. Dont sweat it.

The June 2013 waiting thread is inspiring.

Dude is like, "I cant believe it. I got a 171. I guess I'll be retaking in October."

I'm printing all these PDF files out right now at the base library. I think I may get this filipino guy into some trouble if his supervisor finds out about this.

All so that I may attend law school...

I need to get in a lot of studying this 4th of July weekend.

I think I may open up my Manhattan LR guide for the first time.

I just finished retaking a 171. If you know you can do better, don't settle.

This advice applies to everyone.

When I score my 171 I'm shooting off fireworks and streaking through the neighborhood.

It's the 4th of July and all I can think about is the LSAT.

This exam has taken over my life. It's all I care about.

I would have to score 177+ to lose my f#$%ing mind. Or just megapost about it and be told to retake by fellow TLSers.

I started drilling necessary assumption questions from my cambridge packet.

I've discovered that the easy questions really are easy and the difficult questions really are difficult.

It's a groundbreaking discovery, I know.

Nothing wrong with starting a year earlier, but you guys seem to be hitting it off pretty intense right out of the gate... What is your plan to avoid burnout/running out of material?

Is doubling over material that bad? I figured that more exposure, review, and practice would lead to more precision and speed come test day.

A year or so seems like it has enough wiggle room for any cushion if someone starts experiencing burn out. They should definitely take days off and, you know, have a life separate from studying. OP is in the military, so they likely keep him busy(?). Just don't forget real R+R.

I'll be good to go in that aspect. I try to take a 10-15 minute break after every hour of studying.

Lately I've been doing a lot of drilling while in the sauna. My papers get a little damp, but it's no biggie. It's relaxing. You all should try it sometime.

Yesterday I finished off the level 1 difficulty questions of necessary assumption. I had 18 correct out of 20. The two I got wrong I even circled as "not sure." Extremely happy about this.

Then I started Steve Schwartz' 7 month study schedule. It starts off with pure sequencing logic games. Those are brutal. I absolutely hate them. I don't know if most people find those easy, but I despised them.

Sauna? That seems kinda weird to me haha.

Pure sequencing I found a bit weird to start, but I could quickly breeze through them. I can finish the older pure sequencing games in about a minute or two, so I think you'll get it!

I'm going to start cutting out all the logical reasoning questions I make errors on.

I'll make a nice little book out of all my ill logic. It's going to be great.
