Whats everyone's opinion regarding whether you should drill LG question by question, or all together with all question types mixed?

Start by type and drill by the 7sage fool proof. Then when you know the types and have done plenty of games by type you can just drill how you want

Drill by type using the 7sage fool proof method, and then when you get plenty of experience you can just drill hard games or whichever ones you want.

Is there a specific reason why we aren’t able to PM people anymore?

I noticed that too! so frustrating!
I also saw that you have been studying for a year and a half, correct? What material have you been studying during that time? I would be completely willing to do that but wouldn't you run out of PTs??

Hi everyone! Just created a TLS account but been reading forums here for a while. I'm signed up for the June test, located in the Bay Area. Hope your studying is going well.

Does anyone know of any good tutors or any companies through which I can find a good 1 on 1 tutor?

Checking in! Just got my score for Feb. Highly considering June or July test. Would be interested in an online study partner. I would prefer they are 165+. I have a 170 on record and am looking for at least 172 on next test. I can create a throwaway account on email to publish on here if there is anybody interested in working together. Looking to perfect LR and we can talk about LG. Also happy to do RC things, but I have found that review on RC isn’t as effective.

Good luck all.

Since there's a lot of time left before the test date, I'm considering taking a tunneled vision approach to studying. The aim is to focus on mastering a section before moving on to the next. For example, my best and favorite section of the test is the logic games. I see a lot of potential for improvement here, so I've decided to focus solely on the logic games section for the next few weeks. I plan on reading through the entire logic games bible so as to learn the fundamentals before taking on drills. I have a pretty solid logic background and I think it would help me cement the foundation before moving on to the next sections.

I chose to take this approach because I noticed that whenever I take a LG section untimed, I usually get no more than 3 wrong. This led me to conclude that, the time constraint is what I am struggling with. If I can train myself to increase my speed without giving up my accuracy, I am confident that I would do really well on LG.

What are everyone's thought on this approach? Could this lead to burnout? Any suggestions on how to do this efficiently?

LGs is definitely the most fun place to start because the marginal returns are the highest. However, I would recommend a more synthesized approach to the test and maybe work on two sections at a time? If you only focus on one section at a time by the time you return to it after finishing the last section you will be out of shape!

For sure, I ended up synthesizing it when I became bored with LG. I've been much better since then.

Checking in! Currently studying the Powerscore Bibles for LG and LR. I'm focusing more on LG at first then I will start to divide my time between the two. This will be my second time taking the LSAT, but the first time I actually studied for it. Any advice for the LG and LR sections would be great! Good luck to everyone!

I'm in the exact same situation. Bay Area, and have been stalking these forums forever and finally decided to get an account.

Also- is anyone also going to sign up for the July test date in addition to the June one? It's weird since it's new, but like, I tend to be more relaxed the second time I'm taking a standardized test so may find it beneficial to sign up for both June and July? Idk

Has anyone had any luck in foolproofing RC? I feel like it's my greatest liability come test time. LG and LR average around -3 for me, but my RC scores are much harder to predict, probably around -4 or -5. Since I'm already on the bubble of cracking 170, I can't afford a -6 or something come test day. But I feel like it's the hardest section to figure out how to improve on.

What's the Best in class/online prep course to take starting now until to the june lsat?

The order of sections im good at: LG, LR, RC. However "good" is probably not as good as yalls. I get about 18-20/23 LG; about 30/50 LR, 12/27 RC.
I know my RC is horrific, LR is mediocre, and LG needs to be perfect.
What can I do? I'm consistently PTing at 153, I want to jump at least to a 158...
Any thoughts? REALLY Want to do this by June TEST.

Looking for a daily schedule that, if i follow to the exact schedule, Should help me get there.
cracking 160 would be nice too tho.

Any advice for June LSAT?

My recommendation would be 7Sage but I’m sure there are equally great options. My LG scores were way worse than yours when I started but through foolproofing I’ve gotten down to -0.

Judging by your LR scores strengthening your fundamental understanding of the LR section might help a lot both LR AND RC. 7Sage does a great job of teaching this to students. Though I’d a pretty great background in conditional logic, their method of teaching it bolstered my understanding and improved my performance on the LR sections.

Regardless of what program you decide to go with. Try out 7Sage foolproofing method LG. It works wonders.
