I was practice testing higher, but I managed to separate my shoulder and tear all of my ligaments in my dominant arm playing slow-pitch softball four days prior to the exam. Imagine taking the LSAT while being in severe pain every time you tried to fill in a bubble or diagram a question!

Just took prep test 66:
-0 LG
-0 LR
-0 LR
-8 RC

Yes, you read that right. Every practice test is similar to 66 - I'll go -0 on LG, -0, -1 or -2 total on LR, and then completely shit my pants on RC. I've tried the LSAT Trainer, PowerScore RC Bible, and read every article/blog that I can get my hands on. I miss all types of questions and honestly think that it's just a lack of focus on my part. So frustrating!

It's especially bad when RC is the last section. Manhattan LSAT really helped me.... My problems were also focus related, MLSAT helped me focus on things more effectively. I have no idea how it compares to the other books.

torn ligaments + LSAT sounds like a godawful combination.

Good call


This may be kind of basic for you, but I found the LSAT Arcade app from Manhattan LSAT to be kind of helpful in solidifying the fundamentals. They have an online site also, but I find the app super useful when I'm somewhere without my LSAT materials.


I've used that, too!

They were the first 3 I did, because of the thorough explanations.

they're great to start with because superprep explains every question. At this point, they're not critical.

I got a 178 on B and it was my second ever PT, so I guess it's easy, if you need a confidence boost. (170 and 173 on A and C, so it was an outlier fo sho)

40 yo teacher to me after he couldnt figure an issue w his calendar in outlook:

"i was good at technology in the 90s!"

i then burst out laughing but he was actually serious and i think he was feeling kind of old that technology has passed him by so hard so i kind of felt bad but i mean how do u not laugh at someone when they say "i was good at technology 20 years ago!"
