You’re on the right track. You’ll see that different prep books have different ways of communicating LSAT strategies. Focus on using whichever one speaks the most to you. It’s possible that you’ll like how Powerscore approaches Games but also how the LSAT Trainer approaches Logical Reasoning. My personal opinion is that using multiple sources for the same section is perfectly acceptable, if not preferable. But that opinion is certainly not unanimous. I’ve always believed that the more perspectives one has on an issue, the better understanding one has. Eventually, you are going to want to choose which strategy works best for you. That being said, you do need to take a diagnostic practice test in fairly short order. The LSAT tests mental fortitude as much as anything else. Those who succeed (meaning a significant score increase from their diagnostic) display no fear - emphasis on the word “display”. Familiarize yourself with the test, and then take a strictly timed diagnostic test before next week. Not after next week, but before. Got to get it done. When it comes to increasing one’s score, after about a 6 point increase, every additional point gained is more difficult to achieve than the previous point. So if it takes 10 units of energy to gain the 7th point, it takes 12 units of energy to gain that 8th point - so 22 units to gain those additional 2 points. And so on and so forth. I’m not crazy, my mother had me tested: the LSAT is a beautiful test. A Gorgon, for sure. But still beautiful. Good luck!

Thank you so much for this insightful advice! This might be a dumb question, but where/how do you recommend taking a diagnostic test? Is there somewhere online I can take it for free? Is there a resource that will give me recommendations on what to focus on based on the diagnostic?

Please get the LSAC Lawhub. you will have access to all the tests there - including a diagnostic. You can also diagnostic for free on Khan academy. But I highlyyyy suggest getting the Lawhub, it has every single LSAT paper


TestTrainer

Any diagnostic test you take, make sure that it’s not too old. They will have test dates on it. It should be from 2005 or forward. Ideally, it should be from 2015 forward. Good luck!

I too am a beginner and bought the powerscore bibles and trainer, will get 7SAGE this week. I just don't know how to navigate through all of it, who's schedule do I follow? What do I do from where? Do I have to do every single chapter from both these books? Please help. u/TestTrainer


TestTrainer

As I indicated in my reply, you have to take a diagnostic test first. And then figure out what kind of score you want. That will go along way in determining just how much work you have ahead of you.

Did you buy the workbooks too or just the bibles for Powerscore?
