Hahaha same here. When I get up at 5 all week long I enjoy a little later on the weekends lol


Haha yep. I briefly entertained the delusion that I would start by 9:00 am. Definitely did not happen. About to start for real.

Yes haha weekends are too beautiful to be tarnished by alarm clocks. Of course, as soon as I checked my email this morning, I had 3 emails from my boss wanting work done on 3 totally unrelated things that I have to get to before I can take the LSAT -_-

Maybe I'll have it done by 5...



Ouch. I intentionally looked for a job that was all at the office haha when I leave there I have no responsibility after that. Doesn't pay as well I'm sure but reduces stress while I'm stressing over getting into law school haha


I'm planning on starting it here in a half hour or so.


Mine pays terribly, but it's getting me through a master's degree haha. I figure it's preparing me somewhat for an actual law job though! (gotta find that silver lining somewhere) :roll:

Making it my goal to start with you before the hour is up!

7:15.


I also woke up at 5 last time. I think I'll wake up at the same time again this time, I do much better when I don't feel rushed whatsoever in the morning.


I want to wake up a 5:30 but I need to start doing this on Monday onward until test day. I remember feeling super tired cause I told myself I'd wake up earlier a few weeks in advance but that was determined to be a lie


this is a great idea. I'll be your wake-up buddy. I made the mistake last time of waking up at 8ish throughout the week and going to bed at 11ish. This time, I want to go to bed by 9. Waking up at 5 throughout the week should help me be tired enough for that to happen.


Thats what I did. But I knew I'd have to get up at like 5:30, so I 'm not sure why. I think I just got lazy with it. Waking up early when you don't really have to is so hard, lol. If I had a coffee right beside my bed ready I think I'd be good

took up lr after a while today and dropped -5 on 45 LR2. so did another section 39 lr1 and was -0. no idea why i have become inconsistent in lr since oct as i tried to work on rc.

i have done 10 LR sections since oct and misses in the 4th col add to -19. what worries me is the drop of like -5 on some sections.

PT35 4 LR -2 26 Qs
PTC 2 LR -2 24 Qs
PTC 3 LR -1 26 Qs
PT37 2 LR -5 26 Qs
PT37 4 LR -0 25 Qs
PT38 1 LR -0 24 Qs
PT38 4 LR -2 25 Qs
PT45 1 LR -2 25 Qs
PT45 4 LR -5 25 Qs
PT39 2 LR -0 24 Qs

I just scored a 162 on PT 71. Then, almost immediately after, I scored a 171 on PT 59.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND YOU, BRAIN.

I truly, truly bombed the LG section on 71, everything else was pretty similar give or take a few points. Those damn job applicants.

RC was difficult, I was so tempted to change a bunch of answers during BR.

I missed #21 I was down to A or E, chose A at first erased it and then choose E.
Then I missed #27, choose A over B, which I still don't get lol.

For LG, didn't miss any on the last game...idk how though I didn't make many inferences, instead made a stupid mistake on the third game and then on the second didn't have time to answer 12, because I just hate those type of questions.

That 3rd RC passage with the questions was so convoluted and difficult it took me a bit over 11 minutes, completely hated the whole RC section.


I missed the same exact RC questions, and more haha. But for 27, I ended up picking A over B too, but the key point, I think, that makes B the correct answer is "not because they are graduated." The author of passage B focuses on how graduated tax is not as unfair as people think. So B's point is that high incomers can avoid because there's the complexity (loopholes + special deductions) within the tax system, and not because they are graduated.

Can anyone help me with PT 72-2-16 about great artworks? I understand why D is the right answer because it points the gap about accessibility and therefore we're not at maximum yet. But I don't understand why E is wrong. Doesn't the argument assume that the number of artworks in the world do affect our fulfillment?

Thanks :)

Do people actually use the LR Bible's Assumption Negation Technique?

Just finished reviewing PT 67.

LR (-3)
RC (-5)
LG (-4) ...missed the first question somehow...
LR (-0)!!!

169. (RC seemed a bit hard this one)

Very happy with LR, though I need to shape up RC and ESPECIALLY LG.
