LSAT PT11 RC 26/27

Tuesday May 26
GMATPrep2 - 790 (51Q, 50V), Q-60mins, Verbal-60mins.
Got 1 Verbal wrong (RC, blah) and 1 DS wrong although I disagree... I guess if a straight line is drawn you can assume it's a straight line.

Wednesday May 27
Shitty day today, somebody smashed in the window and stole my business brief case and old notebook.
PT52 - 106/107 (1 RC wrong)
800 51Q 50V
Completed in 90 minutes instead of 150, without breaks

Right after, no break, LSAT PT #24 RC, 24/27 got all correct except a passage at the end that was on fake art.
Pretty good stamina, 107+27=134 questions in about 125 mins (<60s/q + RC passages).


The ones I get wrong in the LSAT CR's are the formal logic ones, I just guess on those, some involve diagramming. But the strengthen/weaken/conclusion/assumption/except I all get correct. But I extrapolated my scores (skipped games) and am scoring 170-173 on the LSAT PTs, that's without answering the formal logic ones really.

Don't know what else to do, I'm going to keep drilling LSAT CR/RC and PS/DS.

I don't want to sound negative, but I have to comment on your Paper test scores.

Paper tests are good for practice, especially for Verbal. Their math questions are not even easy compared to real deal recently - they are a joke. Even some beginners could easily obtain some superb scores (we are talking 770-780 here) so even 800 on the paper tests means nothing. They are good for practice but in o way they can be used as an indicator of ones future performance on GMAT.

Since GMAT is adaptive test, only GMATprep could be used as a relativly reliable score indicator. Recently, there is oanother quant measurment tool - GMAT Focus - often disputed by numerous GMATclubbers, but one of my favorite tools, definitely.

Again, it is nice that you practice with paper tests, they are excellent tool - much better than many other sources like Kaplan. Just don't pay too much attention on scores on PT - they know to act as fake self-confidance boosters.

I disagree path finder, the Verbal on the PT is just as hard as the CAT, sometimes I would say even harder. There are more questions, and you have to be faster. Yes the Quant is a lot easier-- the DS at least, the problem solving on the CAT isn't that hard, it's the DS.

Again there are more questions, and I use them to work on speed, that's my main focus. On the Quant if I'm not tired I can always get every single quant question correct, unless I assume too much.

But my main focus is Verbal endurance, I'm pretty confident at getting a 51Q, 50Q in the worst case, but I want a 47V+. SC I get all correct, it's the RC I screw up on when I get tired, like last night-- that last passage from the LSAT CR was ridiculous, I couldn't comprehend anything.

GMAT Focus... I've heard of it. It's not an actual CAT though-- how many tests are there?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you are not going to score 790-800, but I think you can't draw a conclusion solely on a paper test score. Had you scored 790-800 on GMATprep that would have been different story (and I hope you will).

Paper tests are not adaptive and can't be used as an indicator. Of course, if someone is already 800 scorer (and I'm positive you are close to that) he/she will take 800 on paper tests. On the other hand, there is no correlation between high scores on PT and real test. Only Gprep can be used as relativly reliable estimator.

I believe I wrote GMATPrep1 on Thursday, 790 51/49. Did both sections very fast. 1 wrong in each again.

I'm scoring 790-800 consistently on Prep/PTs, hence why I'm doing LSAT CR/RC, to drill even more.

I also have to avoid trying to do things in my head, I notice I sometimes do the algebra in my head and get confused then have to restart. Writing things down is generally faster.

Hello Hades,
Are you giving test on all 25 questions of each LSAT set? Or you are considering those pattern/type tested on GMAT?

thnx

Wow, that's a serious indication of real GMAT success. 790 in GMATprep means A LOT - I'm sure you are going to score very high - 770+ or something. Well, maybe we have serious 800 test taker overhere. :)

I skip the parallel reasoning ones on LSAT CR since they're meant to be solved by diagramming, not really relevant on the GMAT.

This is pretty ridiculous. You might as well take the LSAT- just learn the logic games and you'll be 175+ for sure. JD/MBA would be a cinch, or you could just teach LSAT for Testmasters for $50/hr.

Anyway, this is just sick. Congrats.

I concur - with the kind of scores you are achieving ... additional prep seems overkill
