How to get consistent?

Postby april_ludgate » Thu Aug 03, 2017 9:48 pm

I'm planning on taking the September LSAT, started studying in June. First diagnostic was in low 160s, almost entirely due to LG (only got through 2.5 games); my LR and RC were like -3 and -2. Worked through the LG bible then started drilling PTs over and over for the past few weeks. Now I keep bouncing between getting in the low 170s and the mid/high 170s, almost entirely dependent on if something I get in the LG section throws me and I don't finish in time. I just got the game type training (volume 1; can someone explain why it seems like you can only get volume 2 for hundreds of dollars??) and am working through it. Is there anything more I should be doing to get consistent in LG other than just doing games over and over again? Is there another book that can teach me more than the LG bible? Should I bother getting a tutor for a session or two just for this reason? Is the month left enough time to get consistent? Thanks in advance if you read through all that lol I really appreciate it.

If you haven't already, I would strongly recommend watching all the 7sage videos for LG immediately after you complete the game (available for free on Youtube). 7sage does an excellent job of working through each game, and has an overall different approach to LG than Powerscore, which you may find helpful.

If it's any consolation, my scores bounced around a bit too. I would hit a 177 and my next test would be a 170, or I would hit 175's back to back, only to get struck down by a 171. In the end, I hit my average of 173, so it worked for me.

Thank you so much! I had no idea about 7sage videos, that's super helpful. And yeah, today I got a 178 but yesterday a 171. I'm tired of this emotional rollercoaster!

No worries, if you can nail down LG, you should start to see more consistent scores. Also remember, you can always retake, so even if you don't hit that 178 the first time around, you really have 3 shots at it -helps take off the pressure. These are literally gold: https://www.youtube.com/user/7sagelsat/videos

I have similar issues with LG consistency and I'm finding it really helpful to work through the Fox Logic Games Playbook (its pricey but only like $50 as opposed to hundreds).

I'd never looked into that book before! I think I'll get it, seems worth it. Thanks!
