Intensive Study Schedule

Postby Destiny0921 » Wed Oct 26, 2016 10:14 pm

Any one have a like 5-6 week daily intensive study schedule? I have all the prep test 1-70 and Cambridge drilling packets LR and RC and the powerscore books and LSAT trainer. I have been studying about 4-5 months already.

Which materials have you already covered? What is your current score, and what is the score you are aiming for? What are your current weakness and strengths? Lastly, how much time do you think you could set aside each weak for practice?

If you are completely starting from scratch then 5-6 weeks is more than likely inadequate if you are trying to score very high.

What's your diagnostic score and goal score? What are your weaknesses? I actually did this but I didn't really make any sort of schedule, I just consumed ever piece of prep material I could get (with a focus on my weaknesses in logic games and logical reasoning, had a firm grasp on reading comp from the beginning.) I would not recommend studying this way without a somewhat high diagnostic and a TON of time to study each day. I did roughly 10-12 hours each day, with exercise and cooking as my only real non-lsat waking hour activities. Needless to say, there are few people who have that kind of time (I'm kjd and was using my summer vacation for it, idk who else honestly would have that amount of free time).

I've covered the fundamentals read the power score bibles and the trainer went over each question type
Took notes etc. drilled a few question types. Worked on games etc. 'my weakness is logic games and a few logical resonating question types. Each week I have about 40-50 hours a week to study. My diagnostic was 151 goal is a 160-165.

i never really understood why some people like getting study schedules from others. just work on your own time, and hone in on your weaknesses. Don't abandon a section, work on all 3 sections in a timely manner, and like i said, just figure out your weaknesses and address them

Tbh, I think study schedules are bunk. Drill what you suck at, and adjust as you go. Focus on time put in, not what that time is spent on specifically.

I like to get a rough idea of what other people do because I can use it as a reference when building my own schedule.

I did 7 weeks of prep for the June LSAT. I did the 12 week LSAT Trainer Schedule in 6 weeks and added additional tests when the schedule lightened up at the end. Also added supplemental blind review and re-worked missed questions towards the end. I did start with a rather high cold diagnostic so this approach might not be for everybody.

Purple Post It Note wrote:For the last month (two months actually), I did a timed PT every other day and reviewed in between. Went from 165-->168 PT average and I occasionally scored over 170 (probably like 1 in every 4-5 tests, my max score being a 173).

Ended up getting a 170 flat and was pretty happy with my score.


This can be quite helpful, so long as you are really taking the time to review each test thoroughly rather than just plug and chug. OP, you said that logic games was a big weakness, I would really drill and review game since they tend to be the easiest and quickest to improve on. Going from 151 to low 160's in your time table is doable.
