PT 42: 172
LG: -1 (finally)
LG: Very happy that I've gotten LG down to the -1 range. I dinged the last question because of time, unfortunately.
LR: Didn't make any dumb mistakes, which is good. Two of the four I missed were flaw questions, so I'm going to drill those this upcoming week.
RC: Frustrating. This is my first test in the 40's, so I believe this is around when RC began to change (though not when it picked up comparative). I missed 3 of my 4 on a brutal art section. (Not sure if anyone remembers it, but it's the section about the comic book-ish art guy who apparently had some relationship with abstract expressionism that I couldn't comprehend well enough). But I think this was likely to happen-- I started around -1/-2 on RC and have ignored it so far. So it looks like it's back on the RC grindstone for me.
Overall: Changed a couple answers that I shouldn't have. Not happy that I'm down from a 174 on my last test, but I'm glad it's within a range I'm happy with. My last few tests have indicated that the shift I'd like to make into the upper 170's may be more a matter of stamina than anything else. Happy Saturday!
And today I present: My #1 Dumbest LSAT Studying Moment.
Upon review, I realized that I missed 2 LR questions because I understood the phrase "for granted" in its colloquial sense-- when you treat something ungratefully-- rather than its literal sense-- when you accept a proposition without question.
What a life!
I got a question wrong yesterday on RC 67 because I didn't have a precise understanding of the meaning of the word 'preponderance'. I know that vocab-related questions aren't particularly uncommon on the LSAT, but that was the first instance in which it clearly cost me a point
