I am planning to sit for the January LSAT and my last 3 PT scores have been 164, 162, and 166. These are all more of the recent tests (in the 70's) but not super recent.
I have been studying for a long time but am at a point where I'm not sure how to get better anymore. I've reviewed countless strategies and taken dozens and dozens of practice tests, but still seem to fall prone to the same errors over and over, especially in LR. There seems to be some keyword/phrase I miss in the stimulus or answer choices or I always miss a key assumption on those very difficult Argument questions. I review as thoroughly as I can and I try to remind myself to slow down in my reading to understand and try to see the unstated assumptions/flaw. If this were a standard history exam, I feel confident I would rock it, but because the LSAT disguises itself in the form of different topics/stimulus, I often fall again and again. Or if I see the assumption/flaw, it often comes at the expense of time.
On my recent 166, I noticed that 4 more points would have gotten me to a 170 on the FLEX, which is a score I would love to achieve. But that final jump seems so difficult to overcome.
It is 2.5 weeks to go until January so I am wondering what is the best way to study at this point? I am open but weary to try radical changes to strategy this late in the game (but still open). Should I keep doing PT's over and over and over to at least ingrain that mid-160's score? Or should I slow down and still try to work on the process?
I have no idea how to spend these last few weeks. Please help!
