  • I took the LSAT in December of 2016 after studying for 3 months using the Trainer and the Powerscore bibles and I have decided to take it again in September or December of 2017. Unfortunately, most of the 8 week schedules I’ve come across focus heavily on lessons and not enough drills/PT. I was wondering if anyone has any schedules for retakers or if I should complete the given 8 week schedules?

  • Hi Jon — here are a few different ways to think about it / a few suggestions — hope they help and let me know if you have any follow-up —

    1) The math behind it

    if we think of A, B, and C as variables representing the number of students from each class, the equation behind that drill is

    A + B + C = 5.

    From there, if, for example, we are told A = 1 and C = 2, then we know

    1 + B…Read More

    Hey —

    I’m sorry you feel so discouraged, and I’m not sure if you are looking for tips from me or from other students —

    But from my perspective, I don’t think you should put a lot of weight into score changes from pt to pt, especially this early on in your study process —

    I actually think it’s great you’ve already gone up 4 pts, but I also think it’s important to keep in mind that…Read More

    But from my perspective, I don’t think you should put a lot of weight into score changes from pt to pt, especially this early on in your study process —

    I would say that, overall, it’s well above average that you’ve improved 4 points already, but I think it’s…Read More

  • I am using the Trainer and the 12 week study schedule using PT 52-61 and PT 62-71. I took one cold diagnostic before the getting the trainer and then on after doing the first few lessons (where the Trainer instructs you to take a diagnostic) and saw a 3 point improvement in my score.

    After four weeks of using the Trainer and 20+ lessons it came time again for another PT. This time I…Read More

  • Mike,

    I’m having trouble with lesson 12 in the LSAT trainer. The Situation: Five of eight students will be selected to take part in a math competition. The students are from classroom A, B, and C. The rules of the game have given us some information about the number of students from each class, and that’s been added into the chart already. Your job is to fill in the possibilities…Read More

  • Hi Caleb — I think the 29-71 schedule can work great, and I sometimes consider putting it back up on the site —

    I also think older tests are just fine to practice with —

    I do think that for most students, utilizing around 20 pt’s worth of practice is ideal — and, even if, for you, it turns out that practicing with 40 pt’s worth of problems is ideal, I personally think that, in most…Read More

  • Hey Luke — almost all of the problems in the trainer are taken from pt’s in the 20’s and 30’s — older exams — the only exceptions are a few sample comparative RC passages, which were taken from more recent exams in the 50’s (such passages didn’t appear on the test until then) — hth and good luck with your studies — mk

  • Hey Mike,

    I found a version of your 16 study guide on Cambridge LSAT’s website that uses tests 29-71 rather than 52-71. It looks like it involves more practice tests and pulls drills from the older exams.

    Is there a reason you don’t have the 29-71 version available on your website? Would you recommend against using it? I know the questions on the older tests may well have changed so I…Read More

  • Dear Mike Kim,

    I am thinking about purchasing your book, LSAT Trainer, and am wondering which preptests the book draws questions from? I want to be sure to save some full prep tests to use practice on.

  • Hi Jay — thanks for trusting in the Trainer — the schedules utilize some of the practice exams for drill assignments, and some for full practice tests — for the schedule you chose, the problems from 52-61 are split up into drills and pts 62-71 reserved for full exams — you can find more information about this on the instructional page or in the video on the study schedule website page…Read More

  • Hey everyone —

    Sorry if the timing of this seems a bit off, considering we just had the June exam, but I’ve been getting a slew of emails already from students asking for a variety of retake suggestions, and I thought I’d compile some of my thoughts and post them here —

    My primary suggestions for retakers are the same as they are for people studying the first time, and I enc…Read More

  • Hi Mike,

    I’ve been looking through the study schedules and would like to follow the 12-week plan utilizing 20 practice tests, #52-71. However, I’m not able to find one that actually includes #52-61 in the week-to-week schedule.

    The PDF from the 12-Week Exams 52-71 link only lists out exams #62-71 (Week 1 instructions say to take #62 rather than #52 as a diagnostic, for example) instead…Read More
