I'm compiling a study schedule in an excel sheet and had a question. I apologize if it has been answered: according to PithyPike's schedule, I won't be taking tests 1 - 45 in their entirety, right? I'll be studying the content of these tests via LG section break-outs, RC section break-outs and the fact that I will be going through Kaplan sections, right?
Just want to make sure that according to his plan the only full tests I'll take are 45-57. Does that make sense or would it be useful to do more than 10 full, times PTs?
This was a question I'd like answered too. I would like to be taking more full PTs and wanted to confirm that this plan doesn't include that many. Anyone have suggestions for incorporating more?
The Kaplan Mastery book uses 20 PT's alone.. You get the questions from it rearranged. Doing the entire mastery book isn't the same as taking full PT's. But it's more important you learn to get the questions right before you begin on pacing.
My break down for the June test is into 3rds.
I do the Kap Mastery Book which is 20 PT's
Then split 20 more PT's into individual sections so I can work on pacing for each one.
I then have the 20 most recent PT's to use for full length PT's in May to polish off my prep.
As pithy says....
Accuracy, Pacing, Endurance.
Ah, this is clarifying! Thank you!
Let me make sure I understand (longish post inc):
- The Mastery book contains 20 PTs worth of questions? If so, what is the advantage of buying Mastery instead of just buying all of the PT's? Pithy's guide says for LG:
2) Separate them using the classification method of choice - Blueprint, Kaplan, etc. will all work but I prefer PowerScore
Are they grouped at all in the Mastery book or are there just 20 PTs and you are responsible for grouping them?
-Month 1 looks like this:
LG: (# of game type through PT 44-Powerscore Classification)
Basic Linear - Balanced (23)
Basic Linear - Overloaded (5)
Basic Linear - Underfunded (5)
Advanced Linear - Balanced (25)
Advanced Linear - Overloaded (4)
Advanced Linear - Underfunded (7)
Write down the exact time and your score at the top of each LG. Push yourself to finish faster the next 2 times you complete that LG. DO NOT sacrifice speed for accuracy though.
Follow the guide set out above for these question types
Complete all 10 RC sections from the first '10 LSAT' book (untimed)
1) RC Section
How does the Mastery book fit in here? Can you be specific? It looks like he's utilizing PT's and not Mastery. Moreover, how did you break down the weeks?
- How does your Month 2 fit into the guide? It seems like it is a new set of games/LR that one should be working on at that point, not reviewing old ones.
- How many PT's are left over by month 3?
