Well, I just did the math and if I want to utilize my cambridge drill packets I need to do 1750 questions before december 5th, which would put me at 85 a day. That's not counting any days I do PTs or drill other sections.

Yeah, either I'm going to be putting in long days or there's no way I'm going to finish these!

My method is I made copies of all of the one-page games (up to PT ~65?), and I shuffle them like cards and pick a few out to drill. I time myself for each one and any game that takes me longer than 10 minutes to complete I watch the 7Sage explanation for it (free).


Awesome idea! I've been just randomly choosing tests but I think this will be much better!

when I was studying for the October test, I started taking caffeine and it made me soooo tired when I wasn't on it. this time I'm completely off of caffeine and making sure I get enough sleep, so much more energy.

Cambridge separates them by difficulty, right? If you're normally good at a particular question type, just do the difficult ones. Still getting the bang for your buck out of the packet IMO, because you're able to drill just on the hard ones, where you'll likely learn the most.

Just read an article that claimed "(according to the study), having a criminal record is on par with -7 LSAT points" (taken from PreLaw magazine). Any thoughts? I thought that was pretty high number.

For some reason my RC scores are shit again. Like I did 5 PT's, average -5 on RC. The past two days I've been doing isolated RC sections and went like -8, -7, -12, -8.

Don't know what's going wrong. I think I'm just psyching myself out now, but hopefully I can get back on track :/

try warming up before?

I took PT 70 and PT 71 back-to-back yesterday. Haven't checked my scores but I have been blind reviewing all morning!

Do you guy's know when PT 76 will be released?

Between my regular classes and working on apps I'm finding it difficult to balance LSAT in there. I guess I could hold off on the apps a little bit considering I'm retaking, but I just want everything done. I think I'm doing too much at once.


Third time taker here. Its really really hard to stay motivated. I just force myself to study. I haven't even started my apps. Going to start those on Dec 6th.

Forcing myself to study as we speak (should probably get off TLS on that note....)

But srsly, being almost out of new recent material is no joke. I have a lot of old LR and RC questions I have gone through, like from 20-40, but I don't really want to do them since they are pretty old material. Guess I'll just redo the new stuff

Did blind review of my first PT (51.5) in a year:
Actual PT: 87/100 (166); Blind Review: 96/100 (175)

9 mistakes due to rushing or fatigue. Spent 21 mins on the first two passages!

Will take my first 8 section PT tomorrow morning.

Do you do 4 and then 4?

I've been doing 5 and 2 but with old exams, I only got 8 fresh ones left. With those I plan on just doing the normal 3 and 2 probably

I'm in the same situation. I've only taken it once, but I (stupidly) used up all the PT's after 30. Not sure how much the old stuff will help =/

I found that just resetting my watch to 12 was fine. I wouldn't spend money on the LSAT watch, but that's just me.
