Gawd we're such nerds. :P I remember going over a flaw question and realizing what the problem was and then, for the rest of the day, saying "that was such a beautiful flaw!"



haha thanks guys! I'll be alert tomorrow!

Sooo close to 170 but I guess I'm not there yet :( Still need to build up my endurance, I was rushing at the end of each section and by the time the exam was over, I was so exhausted that I didn't have the energy to blind review. I finally managed to after I took a much needed nap, haha.

I think I'm gonna get Chipotle for dinner and watch something on tv for a while. I don't feel like doing any more LSAT stuff today. Btw, jrdavila, where are you?! I need your super-excited LSAT studying motivation asap!

thats awesome! and still have plenty of time to break through to 170's Keep at it! and if your too tired to BR move on to something else and come back, BR is super important! knowing ur score isn't :P

Every once in a while an assumption question will hit me like a well crafted joke. I won't know quite where it's going when I get through the stim, but then the correct answer delivers this absolutely perfect punch line that has me laughing my balls off in the middle of the library.

I really kind of love this test sometimes.

I was supposed to be taking Preptest 55 today, and it's already seven. I think I will eat dinner and make the attempt.

That's basically the sequence of events, including the 180, duh! I might hold off until a couple more hours. I'm feeling rather lazy today.

Laziness won't get you a 180! Don't waste precious time!

I've been re-reading some of the Trainer today. Hoping to get PT 66 knocked out tomorrow, but might push it to Monday.

Someone shame me please.

In my case yeah. The trainer was my first book on the LSAT. Looking back, I should've started with Manhattan LR where it taught me the basics thoroughly. Coming from a 136 diagnostic, I needed the most basic book possible, lmao. I've been rereading as well and I seem to be getting more out of it later in my study progress.

Yeah, I think it's easier than my first go. I read the Bibles first for a baseline (I think the Bibles are more "basic"). This is my third time on the Trainer, and I always see something differently each time. I'm only going over my problem sections. I did not find the Trainer particularly useful for games (because le duh). I'm more of a visual person, so I like the 7Sage videos better.

Worlds - how did you do with the drills? Graded yet?
