Worked on Valid and inValid arguments - they went pretty well. Amazing how much easier it is to learn with adequate sleep!

Just finished the "logic" portion from the 7sage course......WOW! I went in today completely clueless in conditional/formal logic, and I am now a MASTER :mrgreen: (or at least that's what it feels like!)

Going to try and hammer out as much as I can tomorrow, won't be in town Fri-Sun. I'll have to make up what I miss in the weeks that follow.

Worked on translating statements into logic diagrams for a solid 2 hours tonight, and I still feel like I am not where I need to be.

I guess I know what I'll be drilling this weekend!

I'm interested in the 7 sage course...
Can I ask whether they teach smt besides what they teach at the explanation videos?
How do they teach games? Like practice in/out rules etc. using prep test?

Thanks!

I have not gotten to the games section yet (due up next week), but in LR the general flow goes this way:

- Introduce a base element to a LR question type

- Show a few old questions that demonstrate this question type

- Reinforce the fundamentals of the question type via several sets of fake questions that get tougher. These questions are designed to be actually tougher than what is on the test.

- Do some flash card games that reinforce base elements (if applicable).

- Roughly 40 questions from old tests, broken into sets of 5. These are each followed by full video explanations.


Hope that helps!

Going back and working on argument inferences before I advance to the next section.

I feel like I am really getting these down now. What a relief!

What's up guys?

Do you guys recommend finishing one book at a time (LG/LR/RC) or bouncing back-and-forth? Do the main programs (7Sage, TestMasters, etc) bounce back-and-forth?

Also, I have the following
-PS LG
-PS LR
-LSAT Trainer
-10 Actual


1. I see all over the forum people drilling, and I'm assuming that's the Cambridge Packets? Which bundle/packet should I order for the most/best PTs?
2. Which RC book do you guys recommend?

Thanks for the help and I am excited to be ITT.

Peep the best icon ;)

Trying to get my study materials before LSAT bans digital sales :x :( . Bought the Cambridge LR by type Volume three. I really like it, and highly recommend it for people like me, who are inconsistent with LR.

I'm thinking about holding off on the LSAT in October and moving it to December due to a lack of studying as well as progress. beginning of June I took a diagnostic after reading about what each section was about and scored a 156. After following the 16 LSAT trainer schedule for a month I felt like I was making progress studying about 3 hours a day. Then, I went on vacation because of my birthday for a 4 days. Once I got home I left for a weekend to go to a music festival. Then I went to NYC for a few days for a concert. After I returned home it was in the last 10 days of July. However, I lost most of my drive to study being kicked out of that routine and took about till the end of July off. I started studying last Friday and did a lot of drilling over the weekend. I just did a practice test and I got a 156 still. This really scares me cause that means that I'm roughly where I started in terms of my process.

After this, I've been debating on moving my test till December and signing up for a 7sage online course because starting a course now might be too late for October. I feel like I'll be more inclined to stick to a schedule in an online course cause I'll have videos and stuff to watch instead of reading from a book and drilling.

Would anyone who is taking 7sage now comment about how your are finding the lessons,if its beneficial, and also about the differences about which course to take. (Ultimate, premium,starter). I have at my disposal the Ultimate Endurance Edition of the Cambridge Bundle. (separated by question and game type from Practice tests 1-38. It also has Pt 39-59 as exams and 60-70 as 5 section exams), The LSAT trainer, the LGB, and the 3 set book by manhattan LSAT.

wait a minute.. if the LSAC bans digital sales of PTs, how can people buy previously administered tests? are only paperback editions going to be sold?

Yep. Looks like only LSAT will sell paperback tests. Reddit discusses it a bit here: https://www.reddit.com/r/LSAT/comments/3glszq/lsac_banning_all_pdfs_sales_august_15th_please/

EDIT: It looks like they will also sell e-book versions of tests? Not sure where though.

Hey guys. I had a question for everyone. I ended up taking the Feb LSAT and scored a 165, following two months of intense studying through Testmasters (150 initial Diag). Still, this was bellow my expectations as I was scoring 168+ by the final weeks of my course. Thus, I plan on taking the LSAT again in December. Any recommendations on how to approach this as a re-taker? I still have all of my practice tests and books in possession, but of course they're all marked up in pen. Thanks guys!

Did Most Strongly Supported chapter in Manhattan LR Guide today. I just started going through chapter two of the Cambridge LG volume 1 and find I am pretty slow on some of the games.. Any advice for increasing speed and deductions?
