It was my first PT and it's still 7 points higher than my diagnostic, but I dropped 8 on RC and 3 in a row on the last 3 questions of LR2. Games and LR 1 went well, but still room for improvement. Also, testing conditions were terrible, soooooo many people talking loudly at the library today.
Oddly though, I'm actually happy that I am unhappy with a 167. 3 1/2 months is still a lot of time for improvement, and if I continue to push myself so that I am only happy with 175+, then I think I have a good shot of being where I want to by test day.
Sounds like you are in a great place with 3 1/2 months left! I'm taking my 2nd PT tomorrow. I went from 163 on diagnostic in December to 169 in early February, but feel like I got very luck on the logic games-it was PT37. I feel like I'm in a pretty good place for LR so I've been going through the LSAT Trainer Logic Games and RC, but also drilling with Voyagers RC strategy.
Sounds like you're in a solid position as well. Good luck on your PT today. I'll be starting the Trainer this week in hopes of improving RC. Have you found it helpful?
Thanks, ended up scoring a 166, went -6 on Reading Comprehension (ran out of time). I cant seem to get through all 4 passages yet. Also missed 5 of 26 on the first LR section. Looks like I have some review to do.
I haven't found the LSAT Trainer RC particularly helpful, but do think it's worth going through for the practice. My plan is to do more drilling using Voyager's strategy and work on my timing.
166 this far out is good dude; personally, I like the trainers minimalist approach to RC but to each his own. Timing is the last thing to come btw.
