Would drilling RC section (timed) help me in time? Planning on doing 2 RC timed (ones w comparative)

English is my second language. I know that's not a valid excuse bc it's about reading for structure, etc. but it's my weakest section!

I noticed an annoying trend that i do well (-1 wrong or 0 wrong) for the first two passages, and i do terrible in last two. I always run out of time on fourth passage, usually having 5 minutes to read and answer.

I'm to the point now where I think full PT's are the best way to study. What's the best break/PT combo to prevent burnout?

I've been sleeping so badly for the last month or so that it is catching up with me now. I started this prep at 166, went to a high of 175, I've been going down ever since. Worst PT ever today. Ever!

Before this, I was atleast in the high 160s. The last couple days, especially today, I was so tired that it took a lot out of me just to begin the test.

Do you work retail? If so, I feel for you. I used to work at a mall and had to swing 18 hour shifts every Black Friday =(

Hey guys, I have a question. How do you get a 2x2 picture to put on your admissions ticket? Maybe I'm overthinking it, but I'm not sure how to go about this.

CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid - any of those pharmacy chain stores will do it. Just ask them for a passport-style photo. It'll run about $10ish but only takes a few minutes to be developed

Thank you! So they take the picture and develop it or do you need to bring in a picture for them to copy?

They'll take a picture of you, then you just wait around the store for a minute while they develop it. They'll give you two perfect LSAT sized photos.

this sounds more like burnout than anything - try taking a day off and then re-doing those same sections. It helped me see where I was going wrong, even though it definitely did feel harder than the others at first.
