  1. You can drill specific question types on Khan academy. You’ll need to complete a diagnostic test first. I find it very handy because their website works nicely on my mobile phone.
  2. I thought Powerscore’s LG bible was solid. Get your hands on as many Pts as you can and use them wisely. I purchased the Powerscore trilogy when I first started studying and I regret that decision because the RC bible was a complete waste of time. It actually hindered my progress in that section. I’d probably avoid any textbook that claims to teach you strategy on the section. Just actively read more dense academic journals and magazine articles. Loophole for LR seems to be the new hip book the folks over at reddit are talking about. They are claiming that it has done for logical reasoning what the LG bible has done for analytical reasoning. I’m somewhat intrigued by it, and would like to know if it has any merit.
  3. You can try taking notes on the scrap paper and see if it works for you. I’m retaking in September and possibly October or November depending on what score I get on August 28th. I had immense difficulty working with the highlighter tool during the test. I gave up on it halfway through. I have been working on RC a little differently since July and it I’ve seen some improvements in my score. I stopped notating completely and simply keep track of view points, main point and structure in my head. The one neat thing about digital RC is that line references in questions are highlighted for you automatically in the passage. It saves a lot of time and relieves you of any pressure to find a particular sentence or word that they may refer to.
  4. You get 14 pages of scratch paper. It’s more than plenty of paper for diagraming games and RC/LR notation. The only complaint I’ve seen come up fairly often about the paper is the LSAC watermark across each page. I didn’t find it to be a big distraction but it’s a bit subjective.
  5. Congratulations!! Would you tell us your stats?
  6. Has anyone received any news about how late into the cycle you can take the LSAT? Last year, the September 2018 LSAT was the latest test you could take to be considered for entrance scholarships while the January 2019 LSAT was the latest to be considered in last years admissions cycle. Will it be relatively similar or could we see some changes?
  7. Im curious as to whether you would think this is the case with schools using an index score? I plan on applying to University of Manitoba. I scored much lower than my PT average the first time I took the test because I, and my entire household, was sick. I’m a little worried about the mark sitting on my record but wasn’t overly concerned because Manitoba uses an index score.
  8. I agree with you to an extent about the familiarity of paper practice tests. However, did you get a chance to try the digital tests they have available online yet? I gave a few sections a pass on my iPad and I found it to be much more fluid than expected. There’s no need to check or set the watch or bubble in answers on the answer sheet. It saves a considerable amount of time to not bubble things in. It honestly felt a lot more comfortable than I would have thought, and this is coming from someone who was stressing about the transition. The main worry I, and others, have with the digital test is that the software may malfunction during the test, which could leave the test taker in an awkward position on test day. You just don’t get that problem with a paper test.
  9. That confirms it. I’m hoping they put out a chart for the previous admissions cycle. It’s a very helpful tool.
  10. Yeah that’s what I ended up with. Thanks for the info!
  11. Thank you for the quick response. If my AGPA comes to 3.86, do I round that number up to 3.9 when doing the index score calculation or do I use 3.86?
  12. If I have a percentage of 75% (B) at one school, does that convert to a B+ on U of M's conversion scale? Any info would be helpful!
  13. Hey! I’m a little torn about how to approach reading comp when I sit for the test a second time next week. I’m scoring around -8 or -9 most of the time and I’m aiming for 160+ overall. The first option that seems enticing is to only attempt 3 passages and guess on the 4th. I’d pick the 8 and 7 question passages first and consider the topics before I jump right in. The second would be to do all 4 sections but give hard questions a max of 1 min each to solve and move on to save time. I’ve tried both options and found myself scoring similarly. It feels a bit unnerving to not attempt a passage, considering that there may be easy questions available that I won’t have a shot at. Anyone have any comments as to which approach would have greater ROI?
  14. Noted. Thank you for the reply. Any advice on strategy books? I worked through the lr and lg bibles and I’m looking at Manhattan lr for some added support. Would this be a redundant purchase on my part or are the two series of strategy guides starkly different enough in their techniques and methods?
  15. Sounds like a plan! As I had done previously, I will track my answers through a score tracker to look for trends. If I see a gradual increase in the pt scores as I work through the tests, I would have to think I’m understanding the material more than before, no?
