Motivate me to study RC...

Postby mvonh001 » Mon Jul 08, 2013 6:39 pm

I need some motivation to study RC... I have no problem drilling LR, and Doing LG, or even doing RC when Im taking a PT, but when I'm just supposed to, for example, kill an RC section I will often convince myself to put it off until tomorrow. What do i do?

Get pissed that some people you have never met are judging your ability to read, and the score they are giving you is upheld by the academic community as a decent indicator of your intelligence.

That usually does it for me...

Another way to think about it is to imagine that the makers of the LSAT are right in front of you calling you a simpleton or a vulgar when you get a -8 on RC, which is basically what they are doing. Then realize this is not high-school and you can't put these nerds in check the old fashion way, but you must beat these pussy-lickers at their own game!

This usually does the trick for me for any section.

Another way to think about it is to imagine that the makers of the LSAT are right in front of you calling you stupid when you get a question wrong, which is basically what is happening when you score a minus 8 on RC. Actually even worse that calling you stupid, there calling you a simpleton or a vulgar, the mediocre type. That usually pisses me off and motivates me to work harder.


That should help...

What other motivation do you need other than scoring higher? You wouldn't be retaking if you didn't believe you could improve; well, this is how you improve.
You should definitely consider doing 4 section rc as was recommended to you on another thread.

I tried it a while back.

It made me hate RC more than ever, and stopped me from studying RC all-together.

Pretend that you're reading RC sections simply for the joy of learning something new.

Reviewing RC blows. It blows like no other. LG is great.
