:lol:

Do you mean drilling a specific topic, or the drilling part of studying for the LSAT in general?

Both are pretty personal. For the first, you should put more time into studying topics that are your weaknesses (esp. at first). For the latter, I'd weave in drilling as part of 3.5+ month program of study, with few PTs in the first 1/3 of that time, some in the middle 1/3, and A LOT in the last 1/3.

I mean how long are you supposed to drill on a specific section. (like RC for example.) to be able to master it.

(Btw, any tips on how to get a little faster on RC? I'm Finishing a section about 3 minutes late, with -4/5 usually.)
-been drilling on RC for a week and a half now. Completed 10 sections so far.


It depends quite a bit--the issue is more whether what you're doing is working.

As for speeding up on RC, it may be that you're not reading with enough purpose. Many people find they can move faster when they have a reason for reading (vs. just trying to "get it"). Also, there's quite a bit of speeding up that simply requires speeding up--meaning timed drills. At first your accuracy will probably dip, but it'll bounce back as you hold the line. Your brain is amazing at adapting.
