De-lurking: Disappointed, but getting over it... [#permalink] New post 27 Jul 2004, 11:57
Hi guys,

I happened to find this forum three days before the G-day (yesterday). I am pretty disappointed on my results since I had nice results on the powerpreps and the 800score's tests (I was told earlier not to be discouraged by my Kaplan results). All ranged between 680-700.

HOWEVER....... my real score was a sad 650 :( I felt so bad about the score that I didn't even care to register my V/Q scores (I only noticed my V was much lower than the Q, for English is not my first language).

After preparing for two months and a half, I got really down yesterday but I think I'm pretty much over it now. I plan to take a break until next Monday and then restart the prep work...

My experience was really weird. Got really nervous in the 4th question (it was a PS q' on factors, not that easy but if I would have been calmer, I would have solved it!!) and lost time on it. Also lost time on the third q (PS probabilities, easy but I started in a very disorderly fashion and got lost in the middle). At the end I was running to finish and had to guess in a couple questions. Nevertheless, mi Q score wasn't that bad I suppose!

Verbal was the weirdest. I felt all along I was doing fine, but in the end, when reading the effective scores, I had done it all wrong!!!

Learned lessons: I really, definitely, have to focus A LOT more in CR. I'm going to practice with LSAT material to get them right. I also need some difficult SC q's to work out on (please, guys, I need suggestions on this last one... thanks!).

On a break for almost a week,
PBabyfly.

No worries. take a week off and join us, if you would like and i am sure you will find encouragement and support here.

For CR and RC, LSAT is a good option. but dont solve the logic based CR's on the LSAT.

For SC, did you check out the 885 SC question bank we have in the verbal lessons forum?

Take care buddy

Praet,
Can you tell me how to identfy the logic based questions. I think I have been wasting some time on those questions.

There are 4 sections in a LSAT paper.

Logical reasoning 2 sections
RC 1 section
Logic games 1 section

I have been doing the logical reasoning questions and RC only. I wanted to know if doing all types of questions from the logical reasoning section of the LSAT paper makes sense.

Avoid the analytical reasoning or "games" section. One should be careful with the LSAT logical reasoning sections since they are not identical to the critical reasoning section of the GMAT. However, they have the obvious advantage that they have been pre-tested. In addition, remember that the reference populations for the GMAT and LSAT differ considerably.
