Hi all!!!
I'm on week 3 of a 19week study schedule. I'm going through little by little and Im on schedule. Some concepts have been easier than others to grasp right away.
I'd like to hear about your(newbies and veterans) experiences. I feel a bit overwhelmed sometimes that I wont beable to remember everything in the curriculum. haha
questions of interest:
1) is it more important to stay on the study schedule or to ensure that we have a very strong grasp on the material before moving to the next topic?
2) what are you doing in addition to watching the videos of the core curriculum?

Thank you!

    I didn't take the 7Sage curriculum so I can't answer your questions. But don't worry about remembering everything. As you practice and implement the techniques you'll develop a repeatable method. It will hopefully become natural and instinctive, not a process that tests your recall.

    As someone that has taken a few other lsat prep courses and now nearly finished with this one--I can tell you the most conducive thing you can do, is to make sure to only move on once you've mastered the current concept. Much of this is akin to mathematics. You can't really move onto the next thing without having a good foundation. Also, the core curriculum is plenty to do. A lot of people like to do other things in concert to supplement the course. This can be helpful, but it certainly isn't necessary.

    Have not started pts yet. But mathematically, you do not understand algebra until you understand calculus? So, hence repetition, sometimes after learning everything it is okay to review previous topics

    Should we be doing each RC before viewing the explanation video in the syllabus?
