Drilling?

Postby ket310 » Thu Jul 25, 2013 2:12 am

I just got done reading LGB, LRB, RCB once. The next step according to many here is drill. I have question about how it gets done.

For example, LR
1. Get 1 section from prep test and do it in 35 min
2. Review each and every question until to the point that I can explain it to someone as if I'm a tutor
3. Do the same section again, and review incorrect answers at this time
4. Repeat 3 until I get perfect score
5. Move to a different set

Is this the right process of drilling? or is there different ways (methods) of drilling?

typically what people here suggest is to use the cambridge packets to drill. the LG packet (all games 1-38) is about $40, the LR one is like $80 (all LR from 1-38 of course). The thing with the packets is they separate the packets by question type and then WITHIN the packet they separate the question by difficulty, which allows you to go thorugh and knock a bunch of easy 1 and 2 level questions out before you're frustrated with level 3 and 4 questions.

the other alternative is to simply buy the lsat books and then go thorugh and look up each question by type, find it in the book, and doing it that way. this is usually advised if you're super cheap. I would suggest the cambridge stuff if you can spring for it, it's a smart investment and will make studying easy for you.

what you're talking about is studying sections. which is great, and it's something I do often, but you first want to make sure you can do each individual question. After you understand most questions and how to tackle them you can start doing straight sections to develop a sectional rhythm.

Oh okay. I must have misu derstood it. I will go ahead order cambridge books. Thank you for the info.
Yeah, I'm not cheap in lsat prep since 165-170-174 can make a huge difference in which school I can get in.

If you're willing to spend money on prep, I'd suggest that you also get Manhattan LR and The LSAT Trainer.

I'm willing to spend upto $10K on lsat prep, as long as it leads me to high 170s. Well, it is possible because I will get GI Bill. Thank you for the advice. If you have more, please let me know.
