15 is a lot of PTs! Is this your highest score?

I wouldn't suggest drilling so much LG that you neglect practicing LR and RC, as well. It sounds like you can improve upon LG with some dedicated drilling. Will it be a 4 point improvement? I'm not sure. It's worth a shot, right?

Be sure to time yourself when you do each game, so you can track your progress. If you see that you are beginning to quicken and your aren't losing points for it, that's a very good sign.

Hi,

What's the best way to improve my LG section before Saturday? (I average -7 unfortunately) I've been taking the wrong approach so far, by taking full PTs.
Should I just drill games by type all week? Also, should I buy the most recent ones (71/72?) Or are they not fundamentally different from the low 60s ones that I own.

Thanks guys! :mrgreen:

167-171 means getting 6 more q's right. I think it's doable. Don't go to work, don't go to the gym, don't see your friends. Make it happen.

take a look at what LG problem Reese Witherspoon is solving in Legally Bonde
(about 30 seconds into this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9Pc1acaP_kv)

Hahaha the producer must have known that game's often cited as one of the hardest LG of all time.

such attention to detail


I'm concerned that this little gem got buried.

The idea of someone reading logic games out loud to me does not seem helpful

It's pretty amusing. As is the idea of her going from a 143 to a 179. Totes realistic.

4.0/179? She could have multiple felonies and still be admitted. I wish I could get a 179 by skipping a few frat parties.

LOL pnj, so much effort.


Taking 70 this morning. I have more energy today than saturday, probably because I would normally be going to work but I'm NOT and that's FANTASTIC. Bacon and eggs + coffee + advil = hopefully not another PT disaster.

I'm on an hour commute to one of my outlying counties (ugh) and I'm stuck behind a logging truck. Having bad Final Destination flashbacks. Thinking about not studying at all today and just go ham at work.

But I have certain things I have to get done before Thursday, so I'm thinking of just getting most of it done today so I have less to do and less work stress on Tuesday and Wednesday. But yes, LSAT >>>>>>>>> everything, especially work.
