Increasing LSAT score from 155 to 170

Post by marycatebaker » Fri May 08, 2020 11:21 am

I am currently scoring around the 155 area. This was a Khan academy score so not entirely accurate, but it’s what I have. I’m about -6 in logic games, -10 in logical reasoning, and somewhere around -7 for reading comp on average (science passages are hardest)

Any advice? I could obviously improve on every section, but I just started studying.

I have a Khan account, the LSAC lawhub official prep thing, Logic Games Bible, LR Bible, the LSAT for dummies, and the LSAT trainer.

Drill logic games until you are consistently -1/-0. This will improve your conditional reasoning, which will help you improve in LR. Once you are good on games, drill LR until you are -2/-3 per section. That will leave you -3/-4 to spare for RC to still get a 170.

The LSAT is foremost a test of conditional reasoning, so there is no reason to move beyond games until you are essentially perfect at them. LR and RC test the same skill as games (conditional reasoning), but they just hide the rules a bit better.
