I took 13 practice tests (various tests administered between 1999-2006) in the 2 months leading up to the test. I would take the practice test then I would go through and take notes on every question I missed and then I redid all the questions I missed until I understood them. The guy who taught my Powerscore class said he took EVERY LSAT available, like 50, on consecutive days, and he got a 179. The way I see it is the more practice tests you take under actual test conditions, the better the real score. I would have done more if I had the time. I only missed one logic game question. I found that section the easiest to improve on. P.S. A timer for every practice test is key
I really don't think that taking the weekend class was necessary, but I will not say it didn't help. It was nice to work with someone one on one. I was lucky because there was only 4 people in my class so we all got alot of one on one help. I would say take the class, they send you home with enough 'homework' to keep you busy for a month atleast. I think it was worth it.
As for the fee waivers, I am just plain poor so I qualify for the fee waivers. Alot of the schools accept the LSAC fee waiver, which I have. As for the tests, I actually plotted my progress on nice excess spread sheet. I could email it to you if you'd like. I was all over. It took 4 or 5 for me to get a 167, then a 169, then I was all over.
I meant excell!
I just called them adn they sent me a packet, about 10 pages worth. I had to send tax info, income info, etc. Just like applying for FAFSA or other finacial aid. It took an afternoon, but I think when it is all said and done it will have saved me about a grand! Its worth it.
In addition to the above, when you sit down to take your practice tests, break up some of the older tests and use them as your experimental sections. Always practice w/5 sections.
Yeah, the rain situation is crazy. Unfortunately, not enough is being done to change people's water habits. I took sept 07. The test seemed harder over all. Especially the RC. And what turned out to be the experimental section for me was rediculously hard. So much so that I automatically assumed it was, and, luckily, I was right.
I did powerscore, priceton review and Kaplan. Powerscore was by far the most useful and applicable. They taught me the necessary LOGIC to get throught the test. The others seemed like they were just trying to get me to memorise a bunch of question types and techniques...not my cup o tea. Good luck.
