No, that sounds like proper BR technique. Good job!

Gave myself a one month mental break and am starting fresh again. Used up all my PTs but I guess I have no choice but to re-use them. Looks like I'll be trying to blind review method. Ordered the LSAT trainer as well for the hell of it.

You just took two giant leaps toward a successful take.

Gah, I really hope so... the Feb test trucked me and that was my second take (first try was a cancel that I foolishly thought was a good idea to take without serious prep). Gotta get it right this time!

Are you supposed to blind review immediately after taking a PT or can you give yourself some time in between?

PT 48

Felt pretty good about the first section, the LGs felt odd but doable (one question that i couldn't figure out during the test), RC felt very approachable. 2nd LR was a little goofy at the end- clearly I was tired. Taken as a 4 section with break after 3rd section.

LR 1: -1
LG: -1
RC: -4
LR 2: -6
Total: -12
Total Raw: 89
Score 167

Can't get motivated because I'm following the leaks from MS9 about the new USNWR rankings. :oops:

There are less centers available for June. I'm gonna have to change my plan, as well. At least it's an afternoon test.

Nice RC! I've been feeling a little tired towards the end, too. I'm gonna start PTing with 5-6 sections.

Another PT today (even though I said I was gonna focus on drilling).

PT 58.
LR1: -2
LR2: -1
LG: -1
RC: -1

Raw 97
Scaled 175

I took this PT exactly five months ago, but seeing it before definitely boosted my score. I have a couple PTs in the 40s I haven't seen, but otherwise I've seen most PTs and that has me worried. I still haven't seen 71 yet, but I'm not sure when I should take that for the first time.

Kind of frustrating I don't have fresh stuff to use
