Study Plan June 2014

Postby VMeyer4 » Mon Nov 18, 2013 2:32 pm

Hey guys,

Just wanted to get some feedback on my study plan for the June 2014 LSAT:

-MLSAT course (I like to have concepts explained to me verbally)
- I've been taking this course during my co-op, so I can usually get a decent portion of the hw done, haven't had much review time though
-After course until Winter break(November 26-December 13): Review old HW PTs (I've only done 2 including my diagnostic at this point), drill, do any unfinished HW
-Winter break (December 14-January 5): review completed hw(10 Real LSATs book(material from PT 41-50)), finish any hw from the course, drill games, missed LR, RC passages, take 1-2 PT per week and review PT(s)
-During semester(January 6-May 2): continue to review and drill old games, missed LR, RC passages (2 or 3 of each per week), 1-2 PT per week(1spread out over the week and/or 1 under actual conditions) and review PT(s)
-After semester(May 3-June 3):2 PT per week with review
-Week before test(June 4-June 7): 1 or 2 PT with review

Keep in mind I am trying to spread it out so I do not burn myself out too quickly.

That seems pretty good to me, but I'd do more than 2 PT/wk after the semester. There's no reason you can't do something like 5/wk, or 3/wk with drilling on off-days. Try to treat the LSAT like a full-time job for that month.

By drilling games I mean I will redo games, LR questions, and RC questions. The book that I have (10 Real LSATS), has material from PT 41-50 and breaks LR down by question type, games by game type, and for RC it gives us a section from a PrepTest. Basically, I will review games, problems, and passages, let it sit for a week or 2, then go at it again. Am I not drilling correctly?

When people say drill, they don't usually mean redoing stuff you've already done as PTs, although there's nothing wrong with reusing material you've already done (and in fact, you should be reusing material you've already done). Drilling just means doing a bunch of stuff of the same type in a row---like 10 relative ordering games consecutively, or 20 must be true LR questions consecutively.

For drilling does it matter how I break it down? For example, I have had it broken down by Inference Questions, Identify a Flaw, etc., not specfic to question stems.

Here is a revised schedule, I may or may not get the Cambridge Packets as I have access to every PT (1-69) through MLSAT.
Let me know what you think everyone! Thank you!
Test Prep Schedule
After course:

11/26-12/13: Finish all incomplete HW from course, begin review of completed HW, including diagnostics
12/14-1/5: Retry already reviewed HW, finish review of old HW and PTs, retry HW, and begin taking 1 or 2 PT per week w/ review
1/6-5/2 (In class, 15 credits, Major: Bioengineering): Drill Cambridge Packets (LG from PT 21-40, LR from PT 1-40, RC from PT 21-40) and review, 1 or 2 PT per week w/review, with extra time review old MLSAT HW
5/3-6/3: 3 to 5 PT per week with review
6/3-6/7: 1 or 2 PT with review

Yeah that's the correct way to break them down, by type.

That schedule seems good. If I were you, I'd talk to your LSAT instructor about it after you finish the class, as your needs may change over the course of of your preparation.
