Good stuff, if you can get LG to a consistent -0 then you'll be over the 160 range with some modest gains in LR.
It's a hard process, I'm still working on it. I when i started i getting like -10 in LG, finally got it down to -0 to -4 but it took a lot of drilling



That's the plan! haha. Trying to cut my LR losses down to no more than -8 wrong. Trying to cut RC losses down to no more than -5. RC on PT 49, IMO, were relatively easy so I was able to hit a PR of 21/27. lol

We all work together silly :P

Fordham table is poppin lol

Fordham is such a trap. Step away, jgoody.

Nooo worries I just look and chuckle... I'll touch on why a Lil more when I'm not posting on my phone

there was a "what lawyers do" workshop at the forum and wasn't so bad, there was someone who graduated from NYU, New York law, Seton Hall, Fordham and one more I can't remember.
Overall they had some decent stuff to say (even the people from the lower tier schools, they seemed to work hard enough to make something of themselves) The F one was just so loud and a little obnoxious, and you could see come of the people on the other side of the panel make faces and stuff at times... and mentioned the school pretty often lol

there was also a show down on the train in front of me... didn't get too crazy but some people are just too uptight... they don't even know how good they got it not studying for this thing :P

Also, keep it up nlee

Ditto on the luck. Damn jgoody, I had no idea you were PT'ing at that level. Awesome!

Well its not timed, my last untimed pt was a 166 which I kinda hoped for higher but this one (part of the reason it's taking so long) feels plenty more accurate, I just gotta stick with the trend in RC and hope the good feeling with the rest arnt all trick answers lol

This was my first fully timed preptest in nearly a year. I completed all the sections on time - the second LR with almost 6 minutes left and barely on time with RC. The LG section gave me the most trouble, which is unusual as it is usually my best section, however, once I shake the rust off and get back into making quicker and better inferences, I'll catch up. I should also mention that this is the second time I have taken this test.

PT 52: LR1 (-1); LG (-5) :|; LR2 (-2); RC (-5); Raw Score (88); Scaled Score = 169

Overall, I'm fairly happy with results and this is the first of many more, however, I know there's plenty of room for improvement. I should also note that my blind review fixed the LG and RC.

Hey guys! So i guess i can share my lsat experience of last ten days and that might help some of you. I was super motivated and decided to do three pts a day for a week. The plan only lasted three days and I was so tired and ended up not looking at any lsat stuff for the next seven days.... Talking about being burnt out...I've had one major.

And I started hating myself and took a five hour-- escaping from reality--nap. After waking up, I hated myself even more, but at this point all that matters is what I can do from now. Now I'm back in the game. I will pace pace pace my studying. 49days left! Wooohoooooo

PS: peppermint! Thanks for the avartar uploading tip! For some reason my iphone doesn't quite work but I'll figure it out! Thanks:)

Today's plan: Reviewing 2pts. Drilling grouping games.

Wow that is certainly a test of endurance. I just finished my 4th in 7 days today and I think I burnt out a little so I didn't touch anything after the test.

Where are you currently scoring at?

Yeah....I'd definitely suggest not doing 3 PTs a day. Are you in school/working/free to study all day? If you are free to study all day, your best bet is drilling (with breaks) and maybe 3 Pts a week max, with review.

I agree with this, as it is my basic routine and I'm in the high 160s. Although, something something different strokes something something.

RC -6 the RC and LR2 are not terrible but having it not be timed... they should be lower, especially LR1
LG -2 (ew)
LR2 -3

ETA#2: 166, the grader must not have included excluded question, conversion chart shows me at 1point higher lol... still crying tho

^ I understand your frustration about getting off for LR/LG doing untimed. But I still think that's fantastic and shows that you are capable of getting there timed. I have no doubt you could score higher.

part of the issue for LR1 looks like most the questions I got wrong were ones I didn't find iffy so didn't mark and didn't look back b4 leaving the section (not much of an excuse considering timed I can't go back at all)

No 0_0. I don't have the time to do an untimed PT... barely have the time to do a timed PT (I have one scheduled for Thursday morning before classes start). I just hear people saying around TLS that if you work on your timing, (which will obviously come with practice - which you're doing), you will be able to reach your untimed score. But you're also drilling so I think that's going to improve your untimed/timed score as well.

oh the flaws :P
well yeah, the timing = reaching untamed score is a valid point, its more work on accuracy -> time or vise versa, untimed allows you to see the type of questions that you don't get rather than didn't have time for... I guess either way works... never actually looked at it like that lol

Hearsay ;)

At least you've worked on it for three days. I've worked on German homework and midterm studying :P . I am literally the stupidest person for taking on 19 credits the semester I'm studying for LSATs.
