Restudying after LSAT class

Postby thepsychedelic » Mon Mar 20, 2017 4:12 am

So I took a Blueprint course and took the September 2016 LSAT, but now was thinking about studying to retake for the September 2017 test. My question is, should I restudy using Blueprint methods and practice books, or should I try a different method and different study materials this time through? And if so, which materials are generally considered best for restudying? I thought Blueprint was pretty good, but I didn't feel like it really helped me master Logic Games, which I think was my weakest section heading into the test. I know of 7Sage and the Bibles, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for further mastery if I already have the foundation down for the three sections. I'm hoping to score mid-170s this time around, and would appreciate any help!

I'd recommend trying other methods if BP wasn't enough for you, yes. You can try something else and then keep what you liked from BP in addition to the new approach.

For a reboot after your first try, I'd recommend reading through The LSAT Trainer. I think it offers a different perspective, and was valuable to me after I started restudying after taking a similar course and my first take.

I did blueprint at first and "restudied" using 7Sage!

what did you get on sep 2016 and what was the breakdown of mistakes in each section? what were you averaging on each section going into the test? what was your diagnostic?

I was averaging 175 and got a 170 on the test. My breakdown was LR1: -1, RC: -1, LG: -5, LR2: -4. I missed the 5 in LG on the last game and it freaked me out for the last LR section, so I kind of panicked my last two sections. I feel like I had a solid grasp on the LR and RC, but not on LG, so I'm really looking for something that can help me solidify my LSAT and get to mid-170s on the actual take.

Use the pithypike method. Alternatively, 7Sage. Either way, you just need to drill a bunch of old games.
