I happened to stumble upon this forum through a google search and sure glad I did
Lots of great reviews on study guides and programs, as well as more b-school application info which i'm not ready to look at yet
Anyways, a little quick background:
Older than most here, being 34yo. I scored reasonably well on the LSAT several years ago (166 actual, practice exams around 170) and practiced law for 6.5 years. Back when I took the SAT back in 1993
, I did well on the quant (760), and basically flunked the verbal (540). I pretty much flunked the analogy and grammar (was there a grammar? don't remember, but if there was, I definitely flunked it
. It has been about 10 years since i've done really any math, so it is rusty to say the least.
On the quant stuff, I just picked up the Manhattan GMAT
individual topic guides (thanks to this forum) to help review and drill down each of the individual subjects.
I'm pretty confident that with review and I can do well in the Games, CR and RC sections of the LSAT so I think that with some significant study and review hopefully I can bring back my skill base to what it was on the LSAT and hopefully even better.
BUT, I am absolutely horrible at grammar. As a native English speaker, it is pretty disgusting to do so poorly. I was never taught grammar properly in grade school and just picked up enough to survive as time wen on.
I won't be taking the GMAT for at least 6 months and have a a significant amount of time set aside to studying for the GAMT.
So, what you be your hardcore/ultimate course for learning everything (more or less from the ground up) to nail the sentence correction section? This is the one section that can absolutely sabotage my score it seems.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
