Wrong Approach?

Postby riku33090 » Tue Jan 07, 2014 1:39 am

Hi guys I got a 156 on the December LSAT.

Prior to taking the December LSAT, I been studying for about 3 months. I looked over the Bibles and Manhattan series at least twice and also did the Cambridge drills( didn't do all of them). I did about 20-25 PTs un-timed with an average of about 166 ( i found PT 58-70 are much more difficult compared to the earlier ones). I never actually did a timed PT. Sometimes i go over and use about 37 or even 38 minutes per section. Also I didn't have a experimental section when i was doing the PTs.

Could time be the main reason why my score dropped so much on the real thing?
Any suggestions besides taking PTs in a strict test environment manner?

Jesus, of course you need to do timed PTs...It's a timed test!

It completely is the reason why your score was the score you got.

Umm...suggestions other than the obvious (which if it isn't is: do timed PTs and include an experimental) would be to heavily review what you did wrong before. If you weren't even under time constraints and had extra time your score shows that you might not have the strongest grasp on the materials yet.

Drill drill drill and definitely try and get through all of the questions in those packets.
