Cool! I would've guessed a turn-based strat. game would've been better for LG, but whatever works. Something weird that I've noticed for myself is I haven't played any video games at all since I started prepping for the LSAT, and I usually play quite regularly. Seems as though LSAT is fulfilling a similar need for me ( stimulating puzzle solving, grinding away for a few more points/rewards). Kinds crazy how addictive studying for this test has proven to be, and I think my general affinity for it is helping me improve.

PT 62 was rough. stupid stained glass window game and the lack of space on the paper for the first game.

Took PT 41 as my first full pt since december on saturday. Got a 165 :( was wondering if anyone has a breakdown on how to blindreview an entire PT. For some reason the 7sage explanation just doesnt click with me all that well.
Also found that Flaw questions appear to be my weakness and they shall be drilled without mercy.

Whenever I listen to nice 90s rap music, my RC and LR scores increase, but when I listen to trap/raw rap music, my RC scores go down and my LG scores go up

I got steamrolled by that game when I took the PT.

Have since done it about 5 times and could probably do it -0 now fairly easily. I feel like there was an inference that I missed that really helped.

Can someone critique the way I review my PTs?

LG: print off a fresh version and do the games again slowly. If I do not get -0, I will print it the game again and redo the game.
LR: review the ones I circled (was unsure of) and obviously review the ones I got wrong by writing in a notebook the conclusion and the premises and going through the method of how to answer each question slowly. Writing why each answer was wrong and why the right one was correct. (I am still only getting to question 22 need tips on increasing speed :/). Reviewing Manhattan explanations, lsat hacks explanations, and velocity lsat video explanations (I paid for it so I have the full videos)
RC: underlining where the right answer was in the passage. Actually I need more insight on how to review RC.

I have been studying since 10 am this morning (it's 3:38 where I am) and my eyes feel like they're going to fall out :shock:. I had a dream last night that I got a 170 and I cried in the dream. I can't even escape the LSAT in sleep.

Ugh.

Took PT 66 today. 167. Went -8 on non-LG and -6 LG. My worst performance in awhile.

Drink some whiskey

I have a half full bottle of Woodford sitting on my shelf. I should do 1 shot per missed LG.

Clear path to 180.

After having fun this weekend and a lack of sleep, slowly getting back into it with drilling 4 games and 4 passages. Nothing to crazy.

Also drink some whiskey.

LSAT dreams are the best. I absolutely love trying to find what is most most strongly supported in my dream state.


I'm plagued by them far too often haha
