Test Date: I just took the January LSAT yesterday, but I'm planning to take it again in June.
Study History: I completed the Kaplan On Demand course. I took the diagnostic in November, actually started studying December 22, and finished the course at the beginning of January. I watched several of their Channel episodes after completing the course.
Scoring History: I have taken several practice tests. I will include scores for subtests as well, and LR will include both sections combined other than on PT 93. Here are my stats:
*Nov. 18 PT 81 (Diagnostic): 153 (LG -12, LR -20, RC -7)
*Dec 24 PT 89: 156 (LG -12, LR -15, RC -6)
*Dec 26 PT 88: 158 (LG -11, LR -9, RC -11)
*Dec 26 PT 77: 163 (LG -5, LR -12, RC -5)
*Dec 27 PT 78: 159 (LG -8, LR -15, RC -7)
*Dec 30 PT 68: 159 (LG -7, LR -10, RC -12)
*Dec 30 PT 70: 157 (LG -7, LR -17, RC -8)
*Jan 1 PT 45: 165 (LG -3, LR -11, RC -6)
*Jan 2 PT 76: 162 (LG -2, LR -14, RC -8)
*Jan 8 PT 85: 159 (LG -4, LR -12, RC -11)
*Jan 9 PT 86: 166 (LG -2, LR -9, RC -7)
*Jan 13 PT 93: 162 (LG -4, LR -5, RC -8)
Target Score: My target score is to be in the 170s (hopefully mid-upper, but once I break 170 I will not retake again.)
Prep Material: I have a Kaplan subscription through March, a 7Sage monthly subscription, Kaplan Unlocked, Logical Reasoning Loophole, the Powerscore Bibles and Workbooks are in the mail, the LSAT Trainer is in the mail, and LSAT Dragon's new Logical Reasoning book is in the mail.
Problem Areas: As you can see, my reading comprehension has not improved since my diagnostic and has at times been even worse. It is very inconsistent. I often miss Main Point questions but get the more complex ones correct. This seems counterintuitive, but I believe it's because I get caught up in the nitty gritty and find it hard to look at the big picture. Any advice there would be appreciated. As far as LR, Flaws, Paradox, Inferences, and Strengthen/Weaken questions are tough for me. (I know that's a wide array of topics, but they are the ones that show up the most in my missed answers journal.) In logic games, I struggle with Must Be True/False as well as Rule Change questions.
Thank you for any advice/help you can provide! I appreciate all you do for us test-takers!
