Do you guys think having a couple drinks on Thanksgiving will affect even marginally LSAT success on test day? Super paranoid here haha

Was it just me or was game 4 strangely difficult, it just felt like the possibilities were so open and allowed for so much. Finished with maybe a minute, gonna BR the whole test in awhile and see how I did.


I just posted my breakdown I took it today, BR'ing soon. I got -1 on LG I havent checked where yet but I thought the last game was quite strange. I think I understood it after moving on to the answers though and it seemed like I read it correctly after the fact

For those of you who've seen jumps in your scores since your first PT, aside from drilling problems, what other study methods have you seen succes with? What materials do you use to study (Powerscore, Manhattan, Cambridge etc)? I completed the TestMasters course and jumped 11 points but I'm looking to do even better. Drilling hasn't been beneficial to me lately, and I feel as if I need a better understanding of the concepts before I can be successful at drilling, so I want to get a fresh take by studying some new material. Any helpful tips are welcome!

I started with the LSAT Trainer as an introduction to the test. I didn't do any outside drilling while reading it, just the questions in the book. When I finished that, I bought the Cambrdige Bundle which separates everything from tests 1-39 by question type and read the Powerscore LG Bible. Each chapter pertains to a specific game type so I would drill those out of the Cambridge bundle after I finished each chapter, watching the 7Sage free video explanations after each game. I still was having difficulty with LG so I read the Manhattan LG Book and continued to do the same. Then I read the Manhattan LR book and drilled the corresponding LR sections from the Cambridge Bundle, getting a lot of usage out of the explanations on the Manhattan Forums. Then I started taking PTs, once every 2-3 weeks, while continuing to drill LR and LG. I took them under test conditions and used the 7Sage Blind Review method for every single one. I logged every test with LSATQA to see what types of questions I was consistently missing and to keep track of my progress. At that point, I knew where my weaknesses were and drilled those question and game types heavily. About two months before the test, I amped up my PT'ing to 2 per week and began taking full-timed sections with my drills to work on timing, the latter of which I credit with a lot of my progress.


Wow, thanks so much! May I ask what LSATQA stands for? I think I'm definitely gonna go ahead and purchase the PS and Manhattan LR & LG, I've heard so many great things about them and you just helped confirm that... Actually I keep hearing great things about everything you mentioned! You really helped me put things in perspective when it comes to how I'm going to move forward with studying.

It doesn't stand for anything, it's a website.

No problem. I hope it helps.

Thank you!!!!

The 3 I missed on RC I was stuck between two for all of them and the answer choices honestly seemed exactly the same for the most part. I can see what details I missed knowing the answers but I feel like if those right answers don't click immediately I'm gonna keep missing them.


I havent looked it over yet but I know I was pressed for time in the RC and did not feel confident at all in several questions, I think the last 2 passages in particular. Felt pretty good the rest of the exam.

My prep tests are ranging from 172 - 178 like wtf.


Anyways, what song(s) is everybody going to listen to before the test on Saturday?

Remember the Name - Fort Minor for me.

Not sure if I want to be pumped up or in mediation mode when I walk into the center

Anyways, I completely hit a wall on RC PT 57....I was doing well until I hit the third and fourth passages on Russian literature and fractal geometry :shock: ...
