Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Thanks Chirag... This is definitely a good plan. This should take around 3 hours a day you think?
And probably from Rhyme's experience of loosing touch on math, I should probably keep doing 1 hour of math a day....
I am thinking of giving it again in June end July time frame..
Question is in 1 month can you improve grammar by reading these general grammar skills?
Should I consider taking a class from kaplan or pr and give the exam later again?
Or maybe make my own study schedule and do just the sites.. I am afraid if 4 weeks are enough for this now?
I really donâ€™t think classes helps much, to me biggest help were SC-1000 this grammar books and OG explanations
In month plus time frame if you can really spend 3 to 4 hours a day and can spend some time on weekends to study more grammar you can really achieve good results.
In SC I improved from hit rate of less than 50% to around 70%, most of the improvement is due to pattern recognizection, after doing lot of SC (around 500 of them) I can see some patterns, for eg. in idioms I am quite comfortable with not only but also, as good as or better than, consider XY etc, in S-V agreement I can really pick complex subjects etc.
Other reason for improvement is just becoming more comfortable with grammar as such, now if I read OG explanation that this is verbal or gerund I know what they mean which helps creating kind of road map in mind what they are up to.
The overall trick is to find out your strengths and weaknesses and zoom in to them, I now strongly believe that with proper preparation you will at least solve 50% of hard SC. And off course I believe anyone who can score well in Math can score well in CR.
Now once you are good at SC and CR it will reduce some time pressure on RC and overall performance will improve drastically!
This is overall philosophy I am relying upon; to me, it seems logically correct I hope it will practically prove valuable.
How do we know which ones are the ones we need to look into?
You should probably ignore the following LSAT question types:
1. All bridges built in 1980 were suspension bridges and some suspension bridges had faulty design and only if a suspension bridge is in San Francisco or New York thousands of insane people could have jumped into the bay .... some crap like that.. Just ignore such questions unless u really want to do a PhD in formal logic.
2. Parallel reasoning questions... Some of them are interesting but there are more interesting things in life too!
3. If A then B. A only if B. ... type of questions.
Focus on assumption/weaken/strengthen/resolve the paradox/arguments of the type Larry resonds to Harry...
