Have you tried the Cambridge packet of difficult passages? I started using those and they helped immensely.


Just started those today. I did five and only went -1 on two of them. How long did those take you? I'm hit 14 minutes on one of them!



Honestly, I didn't time them at first, because my issues have always been with my comprehension not my speed. But I would say they easily took me 14-15 minutes in the beginning.

God damn man. I get perfect on games every time. If I had 45-50 minutes on LR instead of 35 I'd get 100%. Its fucking gross... I mean, my RC is still pretty abysmal, usually 4-6, but I have yet to come across an LR question that I simply dont understand. I've got the concepts down, I just overread a word in the stimulus or AC. Its fucking frustrating as tits. Fuck man. Not only that, but I initially finish the 35 questions in like 31 minutes, but I feel like I got all of them right because I overlooked a word, which would explain my confidence in my answer.

In other words, it looks like my RC struggles are slightly reflected in LR as well. I go anywhere from -1 to -6 a section

hopefully im not alone here. BECAUSE i overlook a word or two in the stimulus/AC's, I'm therefore confident in all my answers because they make sense. So, even though I finish early, I dont feel the need to go back and check because of how confident I am. But, when I go on the manhattan forums, I'm like FUCK ME IM AN IDIOT

Really? It makes so much sense to me. I mean, the first line could be the 6 local in midtown Manhattan, and then you have the express trains that run through: 4/5; Q; N/R at 14th, connecting in Brooklyn with the B/D and 2/3.

im sorta on a body building sorta mode right now lol. Can't afford to have a cheat day, even though I can see how it would 100% help and how I'm 100% jealous. I can't succeed in LSAT if I exit workout mode. What is the assumption that this argument relies?

Pizza------>~workout mode
Pizza------> Jealous
~workout mode------->~LSAT success


Im tired so its not perfect guys but i cleverly threw in a distraction

Bro I care about you n that's why I don't want u 2 fall victim to the standard bb "clean eating" protocol. Honestly idk what that protocol is even guided by...basically eat brown rice, chicken n turds all day. Please go the IIFYM way. Please. I was way into bb for a long time n was a crazy clean eater then went to IIFYM n my life was 200000x better n I got even better results

bodybuilding was a synonym of working out you fell for it billy!

haha i def dont want to be a bodybuilder. I'm just in workout 7 days a week mode (one day conditioning). I was a student athlete, and this year is my first year not playing, so I sorta have healthy habits. I workout every morning and then get restressed out over the lsat every night. rinse and repeat.

I feel you, baseball. I am a stress case, and I think I've put more miles on my shoes in the last few months than I have in the last 10 years of my life. Unfortunately, I'm also an emotional eater :-P

I was going to ask you what you played, but then it all came together for me, like a magical JY Ping moment. It's great that you have the psychological/emotional infrastructure that comes with competitive sports to deal with this LSAT nonsense. You know how to get the best out of yourself. Unleash the beast!
