20 point jump in 4 months?

Postby mtn1995 » Wed Jul 19, 2017 11:59 pm

So I'm currently working through the first chunks of Powerscore's LGB and LRB. When I took the LSAT untimed, I scored a 155; when I took it timed, I scored a 145. At this point, I need a 165 and am going to take the December LSAT.

However, what I was wondering was how I should go about making sure that I can maximize the next four months of studying? There's just so many study guides out there that I feel a bit overwhelmed. I'm currently following Powerscore's four month study plan, but I know I could benefit from approaches from a variety of other study guides as well.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I would finish the bibles in the next month and then do pt + br. Pinpoint the question types you are struggling on and then drill those. Continue pt + br until test day.

You havent told us of your schedule/ if you're working but a 155 -> 165 imo is p simple.

My schedule isn't too busy, thankfully. I can devote 30-40 hours of studying a week to the LSAT, but I'm not sure if that's overkill.

Honestly if ur schedule isnt too busy then you really should be aiming much higher. Itll be better for u in terms of motivation and also for your prospects. I don't see why you couldnt top 170 with 4 months of studying.
