Don't sweat it if you aren't able to.
What is everybody's opinion on discussing questions about PT55 ITT (after checking manhattan first, obviously)?


Later that day or the next day? Some of us are behind w/ the time zone. :o

Im fine with it, Ill prob be taking it early in the day(if i can get myself moving nice and early)
though I think we should look into someplace to make it easier to keep track(like be able to just scroll up to see comments and such) rather than shift though multiple pages and any other possible side-chatter... though it might be a little too close to testing to figure it out for 55

My mom is always confused as to why I'm exhausted after only 4 hours of taking an LSAT. She doesn't get it. Part of me wants to force my parents to take an LSAT so they'll respect it/me more.

seriously, especially my friends who are always complaining about not going out

Whenever I grade my PT, I understand how I messed up.

I need to do more LG drilling today. I felt very slow doing it yesterday. I'm still worried that LG could go horribly wrong for me. When I was drilling, I misread "neither" as "either." Haha that game didn't go well at all.
I'm also going to photo copy the LR questions I missed yesterday and work through them a bit. I was glad that I wasn't starved for time with LR yesterday. I did a section of another test as a warm-up so I think that helped warm my brain up to think quicker on the actual PT.

fair enough lol and yeah i think im gunna be working on LG today too... tho unsure which type

I was thinking about this too. Maybe not post questions/answers until Sunday so everybody has time to take 55

One day when I was studying last January and visiting home I read my mom a L3 LR question (read it to her, she didn't read it herself) and read off the answer choices and asked what she thought it was. She thought for about 5 seconds and then gave me an answer. She got it right -_-


Last year my bf was curious about RC so I gave him that SUPER hard one on Dworkin and he got -1 than me (though he did take 2+ more minutes). I wanted to lay down and die.

I worked to myself into the ground on RC and now average 5-7 points higher. It's tough to improve but not impossible.

I read a lot as a kid (I think it was like 10 books a week or something?) since there wasn't really anything fun to do in my small town. It was also the pre-Internet days so it was either read a book at the county library or go hang out at the local WalMart to stave off boredom. RC's my best section now, so I guess being a nerd has finally paid off, lol


any startegy that u follow on rc? any tips? please would appreciate it, im not doing well at all.

I pretty much eat 2eggs(only 1 yolk) on break with a slice of cheese and a banana everyday lol sometimes throw in a clementine

When I was prepping for September, I found this smoothie recipe online: milk, banana, almond butter, rolled oats, chia seeds, fish oil (just one tablespoon, you can't even taste), honey and cinnamon. My room mate has some futuristic blender and I started drinking this before work every morning and before PTs. It's like a protein bonanza. I've been drinking it every morning since. Idk if you're a smoothie person though

I try to minimize the amt of notating I do, because I get easily distracted by clutter on the page. I summarize each paragraph with a one or two word description on the side, and at the end of the passage, I take a few secs to just look at what I noted and put them together in my mind so I know what the passage is trying to say. I think that's key for me b/c otherwise some of the passages are just so dense or boring that my eyes start to glaze over


thanks peppermint! really appreciate it, and just a q, do u have a topic where u really hate it? like for example say a science passage one?. some passages, for me especially science ones, i really dont get what the hell they are talking about. as someone with no science background, i dont get some stuff. what do u do in that situation?
