Retaking.

Postby Logicgames14 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 9:23 pm

Hi everyone my first time here. Took the Lsat and bombed it (138). I am now using PSLB and PSLRB. I want a score in the 160's. has anyone used cambridge PDFs (PT'S and question sections?) do I have to download them immediately and print them out ( I don't have a printer.) or are they saved if you want to download them later.

Thanks.

They will send you an email that has download links for everything. I believe you can open each file 3 times before it no longer works unless you wait longer than 3 days. All you have to do is download the files once they send you the email, then move those new files to your flash drive or whatever and print when you can.

Not to be rude, don't take this the wrong way.

But first, download ALL the prep materials.
ALL of them.
By ALL, I mean, Cambridge, Manhattan, Powerscore (save for LR and RC), Blueprint, 7Sage, official LSAC releases, everything you can possibly get your hands on that isn't Barron's, Kaplan, Princeton Review, McGraw-Hill, or other TTTTTTTTT material.

Then, set aside at least six months to review. AT LEAST. With at least 20 hours of review a week. I'm still reviewing at the eight-month mark, and my first diagnostic was a 145. After six months I was consistently getting 164s.

Third, read every single prep method you can on this website and find one that works for you.

Buy them now, download them now, crack on them NOW. Don't make the mistake of not putting your all into a retake.

Do not be discouraged if things are taking longer than you'd like. There are many aspects of the test that need to be learned. The good news is that they are learnable.

There are many good guides on here and many people who are more than happy to help with questions.

In my opinion, the shortest you should expect to prep for is about 3 months with a schedule of 4+ hours a day 5 days a week. And this is quality, distraction-free studying.

Think of studying as your job because the monetary return for the hours put into it will come. I can't think of one person on this board who regrets the amount of time studying for the LSAT, but there are plenty that regret not putting in more time.


Thank you.
On that note, I want to ask this:
I have most of my study material:
67 PT's with corresponding answers, LG Bible, LR bible, Master the LSAT, Kaplan Mastery, Nova's Master the LSAT, The Big Fat Genius Guide to Game's, and a couple others.
But I have them all as PDF files on my computer. Would you say that this will suffice, or do I need to have it in actual print material?
Just as far as organizationally, I want to make sure i'm tackling it correctly and not setting myself up for failure as I go down the road of intense study.
I again appreciate the encouragement and advice greatly.


Two words: Laser printer.

Dupex double sided pages bro.

That way, you can print them out as many times as you want. At will.

You should really get the Cambridge "questions by type" packets to drill.

Seriously. Don't get an ink printer. Those things are TTT. Toners only cost 20 bucks and they'll print like 2600 pages. They print fast as fuck too. With this printer, you'll be able to use and print prep material over and over again at will. And do study with paper instead of PDFs. That way, you can mark things (like the conclusion, the premises, key words in the stimulus). You can also cross out wrong answers. It'll be hard to do that on a PDF file on the computer.


Great point. And you are saying that the toner is essentially what an ink cartridge is for a ink-printer? And that it lasts for 2600 pages meaning the only other resource you would need to be able to print is paper?
WOW.


Yup:

$13.47. 2600 pages. You won't regret it. Laser printers print fast as fuck so all your time can be spent studying. Plus, as I mentioned, you can print front and back effortlessly.

Fuck ink and ink prinTTTers.

This. Laser printers (B&W at least) have gotten so cheap that inkjet printers are now pretty much just a scam to sell you ink.

ALSO ALSO my printer (HP something) is like the size of a toaster. I keep it in a Trader Joe's bag and it's pretty much portable. Lady at the library got mad at me once though.

ALSO ALSO ALSO it steams when it prints stuff which looks pretty cool.
