BUUUUUT they say under no circumstance should I work outside of the course on problems or review any other materials including my powerscore books. They say this is so that I dont get confused between the 2 different approaches and also so that they can watch me work and keep me from forming bad habits. Now As I said I love how they do things but I think i should work with it outside of class in order for the techniques to become smooth and fluent also I want to read the Bibles because I think the more you know the more you can adapt on test day. The counter point being I paid them good money and they have great results maybe they know better than me. WHAT do you all think any advice? or others whom have been in my situation?
WHAT?! IDK what prep test you're using but that is seriously iffy. I've used LSAT trainer, the bibles, Blue-Print, and im prob buying the Manhattan set soon as well. You're only gonna be able to game the LSAT up to a certain score (id say its around high 150's). If you want higher than that, you have to be very very fluid in your methods, which will prob involve cherry picking from different test companies approach.
I would at the very least, drill those question types you're doing in class to get down the technique they explain to you.
I am definately getting more than 15 hours a week in the course. Do you think thats enough and I diagnostic tested around 150 timed but it was at 1am with the tv on sooooo
