  • for questions you got wrong, obviously study those. for questions you got right but were 20 seconds over the avg time then study those
  • Yeah exactly! So the author's argument centers around a proposal and insinuates that this must be the course of action taken. So when someone offers a proposal, a weakening response would be something like: we have other options, or just because we …
  • they won't know that you were allowed extra time, they will only have access to your scores. I agree that it's problematic but it's also undeniable that others have used it to seek an advantage which hurts everybody--all I gotta say is selfish peopl…

  • Hi!You're not alone. I had a similar drop and I think a lot of people experienced that. 70s are notoriously difficult and I think its because the LSAT test makers made an effort to make these test far less systematic than the others. For me, it sort…
  • Two options: 1) push back at least to November, and grind LG and LR. 2) hail marry the August exam. 1) you can seriously hit 0 on LG in a couple of months, which for a lot of people is a 7-10pt booster. Practice every game at least 3 times an…
  • I see what you mean, and I am willing to take accountability when the intent behind words fails to match its impact. It was written with the intention to encourage people. Some people have a time-crunch that won't allow them to take a whole year to …
  • Im sorry you feel put down by what I said, and maybe my choice of words heightens that reaction; but I stand by what I meant. First of all, I am in no way ignorant of the difficulty of this section nor its learning curve. Like I said in another resp…
  • Although I understand your perspective, I stand by my original statement. Please allow me to be clear: ITS GONNA BE HARD AND ITS GONNA FUCKING SUCK. Before I got -0, I was averaging -17 points per section. I never had access to a tutor, nor any ind…
  • Whoever says a year is fucking with you. Ballpark: 100-150 hrs. Do all the logic games at least twice and the harder ones at least 4 times. It's the best shot at a 160+, so if you want it bad enough you'll get there in under 3 weeks.
  • The test will only get harder without LG. Most people rely on LG as their 10pt score booster. Can't lean on that anymore, best of luck to these future test takers.
  • Wow, I got a different take than these guys but I really benefited from mastering argument structures first and getting really quick at mapping out context, premise and conclusion. My recommendation is to start with MP,AP, MoR and Point of Issue bec…
  • I disagree ^^^ Inferences and MBT may be similar in principle but they are definitely are NOT the same in practice for the LR section. MBT and its variations are more conditionally prone. The stimulus will follow a conditional logic format, and so w…
  • I only like this method when there is a grid set up for grouping, since the set up for those board games can be time consuming. I usually just automatically draw up 2 sets of game boards for grid games since they usually give you 1-2 worlds off the …
  • (A)Many businesses whose presence in the city is beneficial to the city's taxpayers would relocate outside the city if public-transit fares were more expensive. (B)By providing commuters with economic incentives to drive to work, higher transit…
  • Stim: Fares on the city-run public buses in Greenville are subsidized by city tax revenues, but among the beneficiaries of the low fares are many people who commute from outside the city to jobs in Greenville. Some city councillors argue that ci…
  • I started probably late September of 2021, so it will be a little under a year by the time I take the test in August. Granted, I was doing school full time so I was only really putting in only half-time studying.
  • your best bet is to perfect logic games, get logical reasoning down, start with argument structure then move on to evaluations, it can be done, its really depends on the person
  • @snyder188 said: This is great! Thank you so much.Do you think I should still be mixing in PTs and individual drill sets? Yes be sure to do timed drills for every Logic Game, especially timed full sections. Do not neglect those Miscellaneous…
  • Work hard on mastering LGs. By the time you are ready to take the actual exam, you should have practiced 99% of all LGs from PTs 1-70 at least twice. Realistically, with enough practice, there is no reason you cannot get that LG scores down to -5 or…
  • They are similar in principle but they have different approaches. When you see a MBT, you should automatically switch into your "conditional logic" mode and map out the argument. The correct AC on a MBT question will be found somewhere in your logic…
  • Truuuuust me: getting argument structures down and then moving on to evaluating arguments is the only route you should take (and the syllabus is not set up perfectly in this aspect). First, mastering argument structure: 1. Main Point 2. Argumen…
  • Dont' move on to learn anything else in LR till you get MP down. MP is the authors argument. The stimulus might say "some people" or "scientist say..." , that is not the author, that is context. You will know the author is speaking when you hear ke…

  • easy cowboy ^. if you dedicate a lot of time to logic games, you can easily jump up in score. I would start there in the core curriculum, practice that a bunch and take another practice test and see if your score improves at all. Then work on you…
