Questions about drilling

Want to ask what is the consensus here on drilling materials? Is it enough to have 1-38 (LG, LR and RC) and then do Preptests from 39 on or do you recommend drilling for 41-60 (on LG, LR and RC)?

Something I'm considering:

Doing all the 60s PTs over the next few weeks or so, then retaking a couple a week before the test, and maybe drilling some of the sections individually on the ones I don't retake.

But in any case, drilling 1-38 is advisable. Depending on how much time you have, drill some of the tests between 39-50 too, if you feel you need to drill some more before you're ready to dive into full-length tests. I'd say PTing tests 52-69 are a must.

How do you drill PT 1-38? I know drilling is meant to work on the same game type and LR question repeatedly, but the tests aren't separated into them. Is there some guide online that tells you how?

I remember seeing a couple posts organizing LG by type. Also, I believe Powerscore (or was it MLSAT) had it.

I do think it's worth buying the reorganized version from cambridgelsat. I have the PT's as well, but I still get the reordered ones. In my own situation, compared to the scholarship money and the future outlook of having better options for going into a good law school, the money usually just don't mean to much to me.

LSAT blog has a listing that I use, they have PT by question type. I copied this and pasted it into an excel worksheet to help me keep track of the questions that I complete.

However, they do not have PT 1-18, so you would have to find that elsewhere.

Logic Games Grouped by Type:

I'm not sure if there is one for Logical Reasoning. It would be quite a task to go about separating them, I would think.

You can filter by type on our LSAT PrepTest classifications page and manually group them.

You can also use study guides on the LSAT trainer website or manhattan's study guide. It breaks it down a little more than just drilling by section or from easy to difficult.

I built a free LR question type finder utility. It covers LSAT tests 19 through 45.
Just select the test number and the LR question type in the drop down select boxes, press go and out pops a list of the question numbers from the selected test for the selected type.

Agreed, I wouldn't drill anything past 50 until after you've taken them as PTs, then you can pick out LG or RC passages that caught you up and drill them after some time has passed between taking the PT and when you drill them.
