I paid the man! Next step is to find a hotel by my TC.

I'm also curious. I work 8-5 and only recently started getting into a serious routine. Summer is going by too quick.

For those who are studying all day, are you taking time off or you are on UG summer?


My job is a fellowship that includes a one month vacation between grant years. That said, I hadn't seen my family in over a year so I am taking a week off to dedicate exclusively to my family.

Anyone else worried about the test being in the morning? People agonize over a lot of stupid shit here on TLS, but I feel like time might actually be an important factor.

I'm guessing im in the minority of favoring the AM start time. I absolutely hated the PM start time for June.

I'm with ya--morning start times make me feel like i can be energized and just get it over with. Having it later in the day just makes me feel like so much more could go wrong hahaha

I would prefer not to spend more money on another prep book when I've already purchased the other two bibles, prep tests, Cambridge packets, etc. Does anyone think purchasing the RC Bible is worth it despite having the Manhattan RC book?


Unless they changed their method, PS never really had a strategy for RC in their older books

What did they include before?


All I remember from their earlier books was a discussion of how the LSAT goes out of their way to affirm underrepresented groups ( NAs, AAs, ect) and why you should keep this in mind when reading passages. There was also quite a bit of focus on notation, but I didn't like the symbols they used. Ultimately it didnt focus enough on the important aspects of RC, such as reasoning structure and understanding the different points represented and how they relate to one another, and this became apparent only after I read Manhattan's RC, and even more so when I got the Trainer. For me personally the Trainer was great!


Thanks for the input! Good thing I got Manhattan's RC then!



I just started the Manhattan guide and I already like it much more than the PS RC bible. Manhattan has better explanations of the concepts upon which the RC sections are designed. PS was mostly advice on methods of annotation. Though their annotation style could be very useful, for me it was too rigid. I love the other bibles, but RC is definetly the weakest in the series.


Good to know I made the right choice then!

Very. I am NOT a morning person.

My natural sleep schedule is like 4am to noon. I don't know what the hell I'm gonna do with an 8:00 am test time.

I'm gonna be getting up earlier as we get closer to the test date but I still don't think I'll be at 100% and I've had bad results caffeinating right before a PT.


I don't do mornings so I'm very concerned about the 8 am test time. I avoided 8 ams all throughout college for a reason.

Checking in! I'm a retaker so it's been hard to motivate myself to go through the whole process again. I also work full time so setting time aside to study during the week is something I'm really having to work on.

I prefer the morning start to the afternoon start, but I'm always up early and do a large majority of my prep in the morning.
