Over the past two days, my PT 39 untimed sections:

LG: 21/23
LR1: 21/24
RC: 20/28 ( :? )
LR2: 23/26
85/101

A cool 168 untimed. I seem to be drop 8-11 points due on timed conditions. Is the best way to drill timed now? My target score range is 164-166.180

there ya go :P I would say drill timed and be sure to properly review. BR isnt meant only for full PT's.
this way you keep working on getting more comfortable with timing(limitations, stress, yada yada) then before grading go back over the section again untimed.

First PT since September, I forgot how exhausting these were. Currently on break. Noticing that my timing is off, hopefully that'll fix itself with more practice.

hey nlee, def drill timed. Being able to do questions well without timed conditions is not what the lsat is testing. clearly your accuracy is pretty good, but it doesnt mean much without replicating it under timed conditions.

Thanks Colonel. At this point, I'm just happy that I've improved so much since my diagnostic over the summer. Working on timing will be a whole another beast. :wink:

No your progress is definitely awesome. I didnt mean for that to take anything away, im just saying to really perform 100% its a combination of timing and accuracy.

33 days is plenty of time. Done with PT. Excited for the kick in the ass to work harder!

Late lunching and then BR. PUMPED.

MC - when you're drilling RC, do you do them by passage type, or is just a free for all?

MC- I'd like to add to the question. If you are also timing the RC's, do you allot time by the difficulty of the test or is it the same per passage? Any factors such as Cambridge Difficulty Level or # of Question's?

I think 10 is sufficient because the most I will see on test day is (possibly) 8 consecutive plus a writing sample. I'd still prefer to make it where I'm confident in my endurance on 3 sections, but I'm fairly happy with where I'm at, especially compared to on September 27th.

I think the take away though, is that it really is about prepping in a way so that one is prepared for something significantly more difficult then they will face on test day. Whether that manifests itself in 32 minutes sections, or 6 section tests, or 7sage distractions above and beyond what one is likely to face.


This is a really great idea! I didn't think to practice doing 8-10 RC passages in a row, but that it my weakest section, and I need to work on building up my endurance for reading passages as well.

So far I have just been building up endurance by doing 6-8 PT sections in a row, and I definitely notice a difference!

So I definitely saw this quote first and legit thought Dirigo was getting really horny over the thought of getting a 180.

I'm going to start moving down in timing when I take pts, that plus moving to new areas to test at. These are things I didn't do for September, regretably.

your posts are so inspirational MC

Stacking RC sections builds character.
