Just finished my first Cold Diagnostic Score. Need Input.

Postby PoCaha » Mon May 18, 2015 1:56 am

Hey guys,

I just did my first cold diagnostic on PT 29, Oct 1999. I got 164 untimed. 161 timed. The break of the scores are as follows:

PT 29 Score Breakdown:
1. LR: 20/25 (-5)
2. RC: 19/27 (-8)
3. LG: 22/24 (-2)
4. LR: 20/25 (-5)

My Resources:
PT: 10 More series (7-38). Will be buying all the PT's up to the latest editions. I have decided not to buy the Cambridge sets, as I want to be able to switch quickly between the easy-to-hardest questions on the fly as expected on exam day. Should I buy the Cambridge Hardest Questions packets? Those seem appealing.

Study Material:
2009 Editions of Powerscore Bibles for LR, LG, RC. Critiques?
LSAT SuperPrep 1. Should I look into SuperPrep 2?

I have 4.5 months until the Oct. 03 2015 exam. I want to aim for perfect. How should I go about this from here? I have 6 days a week to commit to studying the LSAT. I have commitments to something on Mondays.

It seems clear that RC is my weakest section. I will look for some RC guides. Has anyone had experience improving in this section?

Hmm....hard to say

An untimed diagnostic could be very different than doing a cold diag timed

Timing is what makes the LSAT so hard.....lots of people would be scoring in the 170's if this was an untimed exam

Very impressive though regardless

I should mention it was 161 timed. 164 from Blind Review. I will update the original post.

Just read the pithypike thread and do lots of practice tests. You'll be fine. Don't stress out too much.

You don't "need input."

Read the books.

Practice the tests.

TLS overanalyzes LSAT prep way too much.

What are your problems with RC?

I took my cold diagnostic recently and my only issue was timing. Did you get -8 from entering incorrect answers or did you run out of time?
