Did PT 57 after work and before Suits. Not happy with the results.

PT 57 - 173.
LR -4
RC -2
LG -2

Weirdly enough, that's a section breakdown that I am trying to make my average (0-2 for every section), but it's one of my lower test scores in the last month. The RC mistakes were dumb, but I'm still missing some fundamentals on the LR. My 2 LG were from mistakes I made from rushing because I knew the dino game was a beast.

Can you post the link? I'm not being lazy, I honestly couldnt find it. Found other free LR videos about conditional reasoning and stuff?

Appreciate it man! thanks for sharing.

Has anyone taken PT 70 yet? RC #14 makes no sense to me even after BR.

D is stated in the passage. the author thinks that the colleagues think along with the review that is now "FORTUNATELY realized as unrealistic."

How did your 6 section PT go the other day? I saw you post before it and think I missed if you posted after. I haven't gotten to any of those yet in my Cambridge packet

My weakness on LR is the assumption questions. Any tips on what I can do to improve? I'm enrolled in a TM course, so I think I have an additional 200 of those questions that I haven't seen yet.

I really hate games that involve alphabetical ordering. PT 34 G2 and PT 10 G3 are perfect examples. I have to sit there in the middle of the game with the clock running down and sing myself the alphabet song. Ridiculous.

GUYS I just did logic games from PT53 and got -0 in 25 minutes!!

I'm so excited!! Also, I've been improving LR and RC as well: I was worried that I would forget everything but that 2-day break was actually really helpful...

I had my first LSAT nightmare last night. The room was almost pitch black and I was freaking out. None of the lights worked so the proctor kept telling me to work through it. At one point I saw some light coming in through a window and was trying to utilize that. But the lack of light paled in comparison to questions. The only two I remember were "how would your friend react if you got a new pair of Jordan's?" And "if your friend is standing across from you and can clearly read the words on the front of your shoes when they look down, how tall are they?" Let's just say I'm pretty sure that was going to be a cancelled score.

I probably tweet about the LSAT too much, as indicated by my almost complete domain over two LSAT-related hashtags.

quick question... when LSAC says that there is 1 transcript "outstanding" does that mean that the school has submitted it and they just havent processes it? Or does that mean that its waiting for the school to submit it

It will say outstanding until LSAC has processed it.

Does anyone have any advice on getting used to the rigor of PTing? I have spent most of my time this far drilling fundamentals and I just took my first PT since my diagnosti this morning. I've done markedly better (160) but during the final section I felt extremely unfocused, which led to a number of dumb errors that could've easily been prevented. This, in conjunction with the fact that I had to guess on my final 8 RC led to a score lower than I would've liked (170). Anyone have any thoughts on building stamina?

My biggest problem with PT'ing is figuring out where to print for free... At my school its .10 a page, so its literally like 4 bucks a test. I wanna go somewhere where theyre like sure print whatever the hell you want
