How much time does it take to just read the passage in your experience? I think that in 7 minutes I can't even reach the first question :lol: :lol: :cry:

Seven minutes is probably too long.

Just did Prep Test #36 (21st for me). 164 again but interesting results:
LR: -4
RC: -7
LG: -8

Never made so many mistakes on LG, I found it very hard this time (maybe due to absolutely no exercise during the last 5 months). However, I found RC much easier than the last I remember (last PT was on november).

Now here's my idea: what if, while trying to improve my RC reading several passages every day, I work hard on LG? I usually make the first 3 LGs without errors and the fourth completely blank / 1st answer... Well, I think with some exercise I could reach the -0 on LG, and I think it is a better and faster way to improve my scores than working hard on RC. We are 2 months from the test: 1 month hard on LG and every day reading exercises, then 1 month hard on RC, when I'll be more fluent on reading.

Now the question: how do I take down my -5 LG average to a 0, considering that usually I never get an answer wrong, just not enough time to reach the last (and hardest) game? Just Powerscore LG Bible? (speaking of which, I have the 2008 edition. Has the time come to buy a new one?)

I don't think I have an actual method on that... Like, I read the passage (5-6 mins), and I go for the answers (1 min each)... I have to go back and check on the text usually 1 or 2 times, not more.

I know this is easier said than done, but try forcing yourself to read the passage quicker.

I feel like there's less and less takers actually posting in these study groups.

But then the guests count on gray day shows that they're all lurking ;P

I second that. Obviously, I'm throwing my hat into the race for new OP and voting for myself.


It's unanimous, I vote for you as well. Time to hit up the mods

Just sent a request. Fingers crossed that these guys aren't super lame.


Oh, I sent one too! Who did you send yours to?

I took PT 57 yesterday. I did really well and I hope I am able to replicate it for my actual LSAT.

I am retaking LSAT which I scored 160.

I scored a 175. It was a 4 section PT. I timed myself.

LG -0
LR1 -3
LR2 -2
RC -1


I was surprised with how well I did with RC because I swear I was sort of making educated guesses with the last two passages. After Blind Reviewing LR's, I was able to correct 3 questions. I made a bubbling mistake in LR1.

My next PT will be on Tuesday. I will take PT 58. Tomorrow I will drill some games and RC's.

I haven't watched any of Chi vs. Nash because I thought it would be a relatively easy win for Chicago, but clearly I was wrong!

Haven't reviewed or scored my PT from today. Had some horrible distractions, didn't get to 5 questions overall (just put in my answer choices of the day), and felt like a zombie for the first 3/4s of the test. Want to throw this PT in the fire. Hold me :oops:


I'm also getting nervous for June because the afternoon time is my normal mental slog and trying to figure out how to best alleviate that. Usually I drink a cup of tea before the test and a cup of tea during the break, obviously I can't do that on test day. I'm trying out caffeine pills instead but man, that half one I did today didn't do much.
