working with the Manhattan books, will do a PT after each book while drilling LR and LG after each question type. after all the books are done, i'll be doing 2-3 PTs a week (around the beginning of November).

I haven't picked up anything LSAT related since taking it on the 3rd. Took a PT today to get a sense of where I'm at, and got a 178. I should be happy, but I'm SO MAD that I didn't get close to that on the actual test >=[

Checking in here has a retaker from the October test, 169.

Specific breakdown:
RC: -2
LR: -1
LG: -2
LR: -7

That's fatigue for you!

I did it pretty much the same way as JY. It isn't much of a breakthrough, but the "key" to solving that game quickly was making a conditional diagram for each piece. For example, I created one for P (P -> M & W) and so on.



Thanks, I have never seen that many "not rules" on one game before.

I watched Legally Blonde last night (as preparation for that 179, of course) and realized that in the scene where she's studying for the LSAT, she's doing a REAL LOGIC GAME. The one with the used/new soul, rap, pop, etc. Mind blown.

Yayyyyy finally broke 165 after breaking 160 end of September and having a full month of 161-163 with a 159 and a 164 thrown in there. I need to get consistent at RC. I'm finally killing the first but I am wasting too much time, some tests I don't even make it to Passage 4. I know 165 could be an outlier but It feels good seeing that score. My biggest fear is a super test day drop and getting like a 150 on Dec. My goal is too start getting the 165 to be consistent and hopefully get these last few points and hopefully get that 170+!

PT 74: 161 Br: 173

LR:~14

LG: ~4 (Ran out of time which hasn't happened since I first started prepping. For some reason I felt sluggish going through the third game but I understood the rules ughhhh)

RC: ~8

PT 65: 165 BR 171

LR: ~10

LG: ~1

RC: ~9

PT 60

LG (Extra Section PT 49) - 2
LR - 5 (All 5 were the questions where I was stuck between 2 answer choices, so I take this as a somewhat win.)
LG - 4 (Read one of the rules on the last game wrong, when I realized it was too late and I had to scrap the game and then go guess on the last 5 questions. All 4 incorrects were from my guesses on that one game. So somewhat of a win.)
LR - 6 (Fatigue maybe?)
RC - 7 (All 7 wrong came in the last two passages so definitely attributing it to fatigue.)

- 22 Raw 77 Scaled 163

Couple of questions

1. How do you all address fatigue? Is there a strategy I can implement or do I just need repetition?
2. Assuming my LG score was an outliner, as I go -1/2 on average, is it realistic to get around 168/169 before December?

How do you guys go through the Cambridge Packets. For example, do you do the whole NA packet then move onto SA or do you do like 10 NA and 10 SA a day and repeat them everyday
