Anyone else feel like they're stuck at a wall? I consistently miss 1 or 2 questions in every section and get a low-mid 170 every time. I feel like I'm getting diminishing returns on studying and its seriously sapping my motivation. Maybe thats just the nature of the lsat.

going through trainer RC again to try to get this RC score up...its discouraging to finally see returns on LR but have RC be the wildcard bringing me down.

this test wants to fight its gonna get one :twisted:

Honestly, I wouldn't be doing two a day if I didn't absolutely have to. Gotta get thirty PTs in before June 8th :twisted:

Tickets are up on LSAC.com, fellas

Taking a 6 section PT in the actual room at the test center tomorrow. If there are small desks, I'm going to bribe some custodians to find some big desks to rearrange the room with : )

Hadn't drilled RC in a while until this morning (on three hours sleep) and I forgot just how tricky it is. Easily my worst section so I'm going to be drilling it endlessly for the next week or so and then mixing in a lot of strengthen/weaken LR review. Games, I think I'm about done reviewing those. The way I see it is if you can diagram it effectively, make the necessary inferences, and always stay aware of rules that prohibit certain things from happening/trigger certain things to happen, and get the simple games done quickly then it's nothing to worry about.


What's everyone else's plan for the next 10 days?

Gawd, I wish the LSAT had extra credit.

Personally, I wish the writing section counted. (or was extra points)

Wow you guys are ambitious with your 10 day plans! I spent all morning doing timed individual RC passages so I could get back into the flow of things. I realize when I focus, I hardly get any wrong, but, when I let my mind slip I can end up getting -2 or -3 on a single passage!

Is there anything else that can be done to make RC fun while still getting perfect on it or close to it or do we just have to approach it with extreme focus and hope there isn't an experimental RC too?
