just something I googled like 2 nights ago lol theres a few different ones in the related so I mix it up, maybe my subconscious will help me kill this :wink:


HAHAHA omg the affirmations crack me up. Hopefully you're fast asleep by the time they start.

yeah haha I'm normally asleep, that white noise relaxes me alot more than my app though so even if the other crap doesnt do anything the first part is useful lol

Life can't be that perfect, unfortunately.


That would be amazing! I can finish logic games and logical reasoning with plenty of time to spare, but reading comp is a different story!

RC is the devil... no doubt

Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster here.

I recently decided to postpone my test date to Dec 14 for the LSAT.

Quick bio, 3.65 GPA(LSAC combo) and have been scoring around the 158s (with a high of 160). Weaknesses in LG mainly, with inconsistent RC (sometimes -1 sometimes -10) and a stable "okay" LR (-6/-7ish). My goal is to get to 165(anything above would be cherry on top)

I took a blueprint course this summer and increased alot from my initial 144 diagnostic. I know I have a lot of work to do on my LG and really need to hammer out / perfect my LR score.

I was wondering if there are any preferred schedules out there / methods of study for LG? Also what kind of timing I should be spending each day via studying?

Welcome! Drilling is the best thing to do, just keep practicing questions/game types... I'm actually probably about to buy http://www.cambridgelsat.com/bundles/ul ... p-package/ and print part of it out before I leave work

I was thinking about extending my BluePrint account which has all the questions in bundles.

Do you think I should drill everyday and then take one test per week until the Dec LSAT? I'm actually a bit lost on how to schedule as I guess my case doesn't really apply as directly to others

Which (and how many) unused PTs do you currently have?
Since you're not yet in the 160's definitely focus heavily on drilling in the next two weeks.


re: PTs used
PT 55, 59, 57 then Oct, Dec, June 2010 and Oct, Dec, June 2011. (this is how Blueprint names them)

re: drills, should I drill LG or LR?
