I'm finishing up that chapter and was thinking the same thing, but then I remembered how long I took on those games before I used the logic chain.

My blind review is proving much more difficult than I thought it would be. Boooooooring. The analysis will be nice though.

Took pt 43 yesterday:
Rc: -11
LR: -4
LR: -2
LG; -3

The misses in LG were definitely careless... By the last game i had 17minutes to spare. I really need to work on RC...

Btw, I started with a diagnostic of 138...I choked on the October test and scored in the 150 range. Now I'm trying to hit 170...this can be done, don't let people tell you, you can't score high...

Attempted to take a full 5 section PT 62 before work today morning (5:30AM) Failed. I gave up after 2 sections bc my head was still sleeping.

1st section turned out to be RC, 2nd was LR. Planning on doing blind review for those 2 sections and finishing the rest after work today.

Perhaps I should just do timed PTs on the weekends...?

I only do timed PTs on weekends because I just don't have the brainpower after work and it doesn't seem like a good use of my time. I drill during the week and sometimes do a timed section in the evening, but not full PTs.

Yeah, I'll stick to taking PTs only on the weekends now. I''ll do a timed section for RC and LR on the weekday (my Achilles heel)

I am making a word document of mistakes for all of the sections (headings: LR, RC, LG) and trying to keep the mistakes described generally so I can more easily identify patterns. For example, I am drilling RC today and missed 2 of 4 MP questions so I know I'm not stopping and asking myself what the hell actually just happened after RC.

Drilled 13 games this afternoon. My brain fell asleep during games 5 and 13, both of them were the last games of their respective sessions. This made me aware of a trend that's been there. I somehow every once in a while, experience fatigue on the last game. Anyone else experiencing the same?

in my experience, this is a result of lack of proper diet and/or sleep.

I woke up did a an LR section from PT 45, reviewed it than did some MBT drills and MSS drills. I've been doing MBT drills the past two days and I got the first 53 correct than from questions 54-62 I've already missed four. :( The level of difficulty is only at 2 in the Cambridge packets so it might only get worse from here. I don't know if my mind is tired of thinking in MBT terms. Lol I was feeling pretty unmotivated to do any more drilling today but my friend texted me that he got into his dream school so now my motivation is back on! Lol

Does anyone know what is 7sage's GROUPING-SEQUENCING equivalent on Cambridge LSAT?

I want to order a LG packet to drill since this is my weakest LG type.
