I've taken every test from 9 -63 .... and have many of the old tests in PDF. I did some tutoring in my days while studying ... there is a method to everything on the LSAT. I studied it maniacally, taking a timed practice test every day for 2 weeks before my actual test, among other things. It's all patterns, recognition and execution. Needless to say I got results.... PM me if you (anyone) have questions.

Time is the main enemy in the test. None of the questions you encounter are "hard" - they're all answerable, but it's getting it done in 35 minutes that puts pressure on your brain. LG is just as learnable as any other section of the test. I remember the first time I hit an entire section at only -1 and wanted to jump up in the library and scream like a maniac. Practice, practice, practice, but also don't overload yourself. Give your brain time to rest.

The best advice I can give is not to go to law school.

If you must go and take the LSAT, buy a lot of tests that were previously given and take them under test circumstances.

True. There are only a few ways to get a decent job upon graduation.

1. Finish top 5% of the class, and even then you have a 50/50 chance of landing a decent job
2. Have an incredibly close family member with a lot of pull at a firm.
3. Be a double or triple minority. (black, female, etc)

Yes I've been going over the LG Bible... Also have a LR Bible, official prep and "10 LSAT tests".

KidNickels: will PM you.

I have a bunch of old (4 years) prep books from a prep class if you are interested.

You can find torrents of almost all the old prep tests. Like KidNickels, I went through nearly every single one.

I did not find bar review difficult. You already learned and knew 75% of the material.
post #385 of 418

its the sheer volume of work and time that needs to be put in thats ridiculous
post #386 of 418

We just had an eight-hour Barbri lecture on Contracts. On a Saturday.

I am going to be in such a bad mood after two months of this.
post #388 of 418
dude contracts is so long! they do a good job of narrowing everything down to the bare bones though. just still a lot of material

are you taking GA bar?

As a guy who raised his score from a 165 to a 179...

Get as many of the actual tests as you can. The Kaplan and Princeton Review tests SUCK. Take one every day and time yourself. The hardest part for me, and for most people, is the logic games, but doing a shitload of them helps you notice patterns and find strategies that help you.

Princeton only uses LSAC licensed actual LSAT exams... so how do they suck? patch[1].gif They're the real tests and questions.
