KUDOS
There are many topics here dedicated to this test, so Ill add only couple of advices that helped me.
firstly, my section scores
R 25 L 30 S 26 W 28

Dont know what happened to me during the reading section but I didnt get the meaning of the words. It was angry since after LSAT texts these were like a joke but still. The first advice that would have worked for me is that - read couple of articles before the test. It will help your brain to adjust.

Listening - didnt prepare at all.

Speaking. I recordered all my sample answers on my mobile I just listened to them for a week.
Then when the speaking section begun, there gonna be a screen with instructions. Dont waste your time - just wright down the template.
In my view ........ ispreferrable to ..... for a few reasons.
Firstly, ........
Secondly, ......
Thats why I prefer .....

I managed to wright down templates to 5 answeres - because I knew them by heart.
Then while listening to the lecturer I simply filled all the gaps.

BTW. This is to Jason. I really appreciate his videos at the Youtube. Thanks a lot! In one of the messages Ive read that he pays concerns about the changes in the first question and asked to post unusual 1 question. So here it is:

Imagine your friend is going to the interview. What advices would you give him?

It was an unusual format of the q1. However the principle was the same.

Wrighting. Just used the samoples. The same thing - wright them down every day during the week. The main thing here to remember the key phrases that could be used in every question and to get the structure of the correct essay.

One more thing - I used ear plugs that I brought with myself. They are much much better!
I bought the ones foк swimming - they are great. I used them during reading and wrighting
No noise at all!!!

Good luck !!!! and do not give up!

So what?
People often misspell some words. Be more respectful toward other people.
Serhio is non-native.

You have good repartee, it's an excellent virtue that will do you well in the future. Best wishes for your applications.

PS: successful has only one "l". I'm not sure about "sexfull" though, I guess it's one "l" as well

PS2: please correct any of my typos when you spot one. I'm currently working hard on improving my SC skills
