AITE I'M LOST on how to do this again...

Postby lsatkillah » Mon Apr 06, 2015 3:39 am

I'm a retaker who scored a 169 last October. I'm retaking bc I had been PTing in mid 170s the first time around and also because my GPA can't hold its weight. Just reopened my prep materials and took June07 as a fresh diagnostic.

Overall: 166
LG: -1
LR: -4, -5
RC: -3

I took an undisclosed test in October so I don't even know which parts I missed on the test. From June07, seems like I need to keep up LG, improve RC some more, and work on LR. I read through Powerscore LR the first time around which I didn't find much help. Recently bought LSAT Trainer so I'll give that a shot. But I'm mostly lost on how to form an efficient method of studying as a full time student who's low on fresh PTs (I only have around 8 PTs that I haven't ever looked at). I have some LG drills left over which I'll keep doing. Noodleyone's guide for retakers says to get the Manhattan guides. Should I? What other study materials should I obtain?

Tips for a study schedule and method? THANKS!

+1 to getting Manhattan LR. Also, IMO (and I've heard others say this too) don't worry too much about reusing materials. I have a good memory and when I started reusing PTs I took a few months prior I found that there was a LOT I did not remember. Also, while it may not seem like it, 8 fresh PTs is a lot. You can spend a ton of time reviewing PTs rather than just taking 5 a week like some people do. Christine from Manhattan said she didn't take that many PTs but reviewed them very very thoroughly (she went -0).

Hmm thanks.

What are your study schedules like? PT on Sunday, 1.5-2 hours Mon-Thurs, break on Friday, something on Saturday?

PT means preptest because that's what LSAC, the organization that creates the test, calls the previously released versions of the test.

And if you didn't know LR means logical reasoning and LG refers to logic games which are officially called 'analytical reasoning.'

Trainer is great, fwiw.

As far as study schedule goes: that seems pretty light to me. I'd aim for at least 2 PTs a week, but probably more.

Myself, I'm doing 4ish PTs / week from here on out + drilling (which I've slacked on).

Yup, Cambridge LR packets. I haven't used them nearly enough though.
