Low 160s acheviable for the August test?

I am scoring in the range of 155-159 and my goal is low 160s (160,161,162,163,164) with a month and change left for the test, what is the best approach to take to get those extra points?

    My same problem I keep scoring in 156-low 160s it’s all over that range n I take the test in a week...I want it to be consistent in the low 160s.

    I’ve noticed that reading comp kills my score, I get at least 8 wrong per section :/ don’t know what else I can do at this point.

    What I’ve been doing is just simulating the lsat flex at this point as often as possible and going over what I get wrong. Paying a lot of attention to traps that I end up falling for or am attracted to and building my confidence.

    If anyone has tips I would really like to hear them as well :(

    hi, depending on how you are in games and if you dont think you have reached the best performance in games, i would focus on drilling and working on doing very well in games because that is the most improvable section and if you are only lacking by a couple questions to reach your goal, and feel that u cant improve elsewhere, games might be the best path to focus on if u dont have much time until ur exam
    but for reading comprehension, what has worked for me is to be interested in the passage and spend more time upfront on it

    Yes it is very achievable. Last year I took the Sept 2019 Test (the one with the nasty game section). At that point I had 7 weeks of studying total under my belt and my top score was a 158. Despite getting -11 on games I still pulled off a 160. Anything can happen on test day and you could no doubt be in the zone and score your best. That last week I only did sections and really focused on weakness like certain LR questions and game types.
