Mikey - did you just do the course alone or also study with some books?

I just did the course alone. The only LSAT books I have are one of the Cambridge LR packets (PT21-40) and superprep 2, no others. I thought 7sage was incredibly helpful for LR, and for RC it took more time to improve on but I kind of adjusted to my own RC style from things that I did learn from various 7sage mentors. They have some good resources on 7sage though and do live online sessions for the different sections which is also a plus if you're into that.


Okay, great. Thanks for your input. Thats what i was thinking. just based off how good the LG videos are I thought LR could be extremely helpful.Which package did you get or do you think is worthit?


I have Ultimate+ which I highly recommend. I usually drill the Cambridge pdfs after the respective lesson. It includes PT explanations from 36+, LR explanations from 17+, and RC explanations from 1+. I only revert to the explanations after writing my own, but the curriculum is SO helpful. I also recommend repeating the quizzes and drills until you get a perfect score on all of them.


link to where you got cambridge pdf packets??
I only ever see used ones on sale on amazon for hundreds....

7sage ultimate has an equivalent of the Cambridge packets. Or maybe it's Ult+, I don't know.

Question: I have the Ace the LSAT LG book, I have never used it or opened it. I know a lot of people have recommended it to prepare for the weird games (I'm REALLY hoping we don't get on in September but it can't hurt to be prepared, right?) Do people on here plan on going through it? Do you think it's worth it to go through the book?

LG isn't really a problem for me, but I want to be able to conquer any pattern/miscellaneous games that come my way.

Thoughts? Advice?

Also, my plan for today and tomorrow is to review MBT explanations I wrote out, some strengthen explanations, and a weaken explanation.

Also review RC passages (10) that I did two weeks ago and hit up MBT/SA questions.

My relatives from overseas are coming this weekend and I'm expected to help entertain/take them sightseeing so my weekend for LSAT prep is shot.

No savage beatdowns on Delta flight. Sad. Low energy attendants. Not enough moxie.

Try to be more rambunctious next time. Bring flamethrowers or something. God, 34.

I'm down to call that 250, it's probably the best deal out of any of the T13 if you get it.

Fiscally speaking, it definitely is. (Possibly the best point blank but CLS & NYU people may get argue with that.)

Hammy doesn't give a stipend tho. That is rent with a roomie in chi and the only think you have to cover is food and entertainment.

luckily I won't have to worry about either unless I have Pulitzer level writing abilities.

This is the second time I've removed information from my profile. Why?

Edit: not why did I need to remove information, but what are we afraid of happening that requires anonymity?

The less of a paper trail the better. Lore around here is employers at firms and/or adcomms have asked users about certain posts. Given it is lore, it is still best to stay a little low key
