LSAT Prep Books

Post by sayubi720 » Mon Nov 12, 2018 1:45 pm

Hello!

I recently enrolled in the live online PowerScore LSAT prep course. I have only attended two virtual sessions so it is no wonder that I am struggling with Logical Reasoning MBT questions. I am trying to go from zero to LSAT in less than 3 months so while it is expected to not master it in 2 weeks, I would like to speed up the process.

I answer most of the (MBT) Logical Reasoning questions correctly but I have yet to learn a consistent methodology applying which would enable me to narrow down the answer choices to two.

I just ordered PowerScore LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible and Logical Games Bible. Any other suggestions?

Did you already read this guide?

Also 3 months is a pretty intense time frame. Are you doing just LSAT all day every day, or do you have other obligations?

Thank you for the link! I am working full-time but I am studying 1 to 2 hours Monday through Friday and at least 4 hours on Fri, Sat and Sun. I want to take the January 2019 LSATs in order to apply before Georgetown's application deadline.

Absent a compelling reason to start law school in 2019, I'd hold off. A few more months to study, the chance to take the LSAT a second time if you stumble on the first go, and applying earlier in the cycle will all improve your results substantially - maybe to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars.

Age is the only compelling reason! I'd rather apply now than when I'm 33 but asides from that, I completely agree with you. What I have planned is to take the January 2019 LSATs....if I get a decent score (still have two months to prepare), I'm good. If not, I'll study just as hard for another 5 - 6 months and re-take the LSATs.

I had a pretty similar study schedule and took 8 months to study. Don't get me wrong, 8 months is pretty ridiculous, but considering your schedule I'd consider postponing and giving it more than 3 months
