LR1: -5
RC: -7
LR2: -7
LG: -1
Raw: 80
Scaled: 161

ETA: I had like 15 mins left on LG and coul have looked at the one question I circled (the one I got wrong), but was kind of over it at that point. LR2 I had like 5 mins left over and could have looked at circled questions, but skipped to the next section. RC I ran out of time and like skimmed the questions in the last passage and answered all in 5 mins. Got 3 wrong there.


nice job on LG, 55 had a pretty tricky game 4

yeah it was annoying to set up, I was rushing a bit at that point (probably unnecessarily) causing my -2 on game 4

Yeah, I messed up on game 4 too :|


I missed one on that one when i did it, even though I had 12 or 13 min to do the game. 7sage has a really straightforward set up for it, mainly just making the biconditional rule really clear

It's not bad, but I can do better. Timing was def a big issue b/c I found myself rushing towards the end of each section. Made some stupid mistakes on LR1 b/c I literally froze up at the beginning. By time I hit LR2, I was exhausted. Really happy with LG though b/c it used to be my weakest section- I've been drilling LG pretty much nonstop for the past 2 weeks & went from a -9 to a -2.

Now I'm gonna go eat something & then start my review. Hope everyone else's test went ok!

nice

Thanks! I looked at the question I missed in LG was game 2 and I actually got it right, just bubbled the wrong choice. Damn.

Hi everyone--

Just did 55. It was my first 6-section test. Definitely felt that dull sort of fatigue by the end.

LR1: -4
LRX: -4 (pt 52)
RC: -5
LR2: -5
LGX: -4 (pt 52)
LG: -4
Raw: 82
Scaled: 163

It was my first test where I missed no more than 5 on any section. Happy for that ^_^ Recent scores are: pt49/163, pt50/164, pt45/166. Cheers. :)

Reading comp killed me!

LR1: -2
RC: -7
LR2: -3
LG: -1

I went -1 on the first, second, and fourth section, but BOMBED the third passage and went -4. Guess who is going to be living, eating, and breathing RC for the next few weeks...this girl!

So I'm done!

Not sure if it was the morning drive back to my place, but this was mentally the hardest PT I've ever done. It was definitely a mental battle, haha. But I hit 155!

LR1: 16/25
RC: 18/27 (3rd passage killed me as well, went 3/8)
LR2: 20/25
LG: 15/23 (Fatigued and the last game was WTF, probably misinterpreted some rules wrong and thus missed key deductions. And short on time)
Raw: 69

This was my best RC section I've ever gotten and tied best LR section. I really think I would've scored a few points higher if I was in the zone.

Also, right in the middle of LR2, I had a package delivered to my door so I had to pause. I decided to open it because I knew it was my new lifting knee sleeves. LOL

not bad man, similar to mine (except the points u missed in LG I missed in RC lol) but keep at it, drill them games, easiest to improve

I'm so jealous of your -0s ;(

ETA:

How many questions do you all drill in one sitting? And how do you do it? Solve a few questions, then check, then blind review/check yourself? Or solve an entire set and then...?

Anyone planning to use the free video explanations from Velocity LSAT for the RC and LR? In addition to self review, I like to watch/hear another explanation to further cement the correct thought process.

They just came out a few weeks ago, but it's been really helpful for me since BP doesn't have explanations for these. Certainly helps with RC because I hate reviewing for RC. haha
