Hi jhon,

Thanks for the post! Glad to hear that you're interested in our LR Bible. :-D You can find some general information about the book (and purchase it, if you would like!) here: https://shop.powerscore.com/books?id=a08E000000O2WLMIA3.

We do have student comments listed on our website: https://www.powerscore.com/lsat/logical-reasoning/student-comments.cfm. But don't just take it from us — our LSAT Bibles are widely known to be superior LSAT prep materials, so I'm sure you'll be able to be find great reviews elsewhere, too.

Thanks!

Jon, and other LSAT experts, based on our experiences, does people with July 24th LSAT that had different LSAT than others, do they get their LSAT questioners back in the LSAT webpage likely so those people can check their score more convincingly, cuz some people had some test and some had different test might cause scoring controversy.

Hi Powerscore,

I did the Powerscore Online Course, and bought and thoroughly went through all of the Powerscore Bibles. My highest PT was a 173, and my average was about a 170. When it came to actual test day on July 23, I found myself struggling so much with time that I know my score suffered a significant amount because of it. For example, I found myself taking ten minutes to complete a simple, linear logic game that would usually take me five minutes or so to complete. I have signed up for the September test, and I was wondering what advice you guys may have to combat this time issue? I bought a lot more practice tests, and from now until September by plan is just to practice speed testing.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi, Emily!

Sounds like you're on the right track for September. If you haven't already, consider reading about LSAT repeater statistics: https://www.powerscore.com/lsat/help/lsat-repeater-statistics.cfm

The good news is that students improve on average 2.8 points between the first and second times they take an actual LSAT. You have likely already observed that the experience of taking an actual LSAT is different from taking your practice tests, but now that you have more experience you can go into the test more centered, focused, and confident than you were the first time.

If you have already completed your course material and assignments for the Bibles, your plan to do diagnostic testing and review is excellent.

If you wish to take a high-level course on the most difficult LSAT games and problems, we do offer the Advanced LSAT courses: https://www.powerscore.com/lsat/courses/advanced/

Whichever direction you pursue, please continue to take advantage of these forums to ask us questions and consult existing explanations.

Please follow up with further questions. I hope this helps!

Hi lathlee - if I understand your question it sounds like you're asking if some people from the July exam(s) will get a copy of their test back...? The answer to that is no. July was a nondislosed test for everyone no matter when they took it or what test form they received, so no one will see a copy of their July exam.

Thanks!

I just checked Dave's twitter. So, ALL of the people who took the JULY LSAT; get to find out the results, earliest this Thursday night, very likely in Friday, latest, Saturday morning. Correct?

Dave and Jon, my result of July 2018 LSAT haven't come out yet. I have been checking the LSAT website every 30 minutes since 9.am sharp. Did you hear any updates for the people who wrote LSAT in July that didn't feature Circular Table LG Games from LSAC? Maybe people like us would get the results later as in of Late in the night of August 10th or Saturday Morning?

Well the July lsat went better than expected but I am still somewhat disappointed. I was averaging 165/166 on my PTs and ended up with a 164 on the July one. Not super happy but somewhat relieved. I honestly thought I would do way worse as I ended up getting a nosebleed on the real LG section. Now since I have gotten them during exams/mid terms in my undergrad and even high school years before I had come prepared by bringing plenty of gauze and tissues but with putting that in my nose and trying to get it under control I lost valuable time, not to mention I got quite disrupted on that section as a result. The fact that this was a rather difficult LG section didn't help either.

Now the median LSAT score for the school I want to ideally get into is 166. I have its median GPA so I guess it puts me in the ballpark. I'm kind of at a weird stage where I'm debating whether I should retake and try for a 165-166 or just try and make a killer PS and hope for the best... I can't decide if trying to get a potential point or two is worth going through the stress of another LSAT and the wait time to get the score...
