I have just finished taking my third test. From my first to my second test, my score went down by 2 points. Fine, I had been warned that that could happen. From my second to third test, my score went down by 1 point. Seriously? I did better NOT studying than after learning what I've learned. I study 3-4 hours a day, with the exception of class days, I do the homework problems, I go to class every day, so what gives? I'm at my wits' end... What am I doing wrong? What do I need to do?

I started studying when the course started, about 5-6 weeks ago, so I do cut myself some slack. I've also been removed from the academic world just shy of 6 years. But how am I 85% through with the course, still in the 140s AND dropping points?

I'm signed up for the December 2011 test, but I'm wondering if I should even take it. Any suggestions? Should I retake the course? Try private tutoring? Take it as a big glaring sign to give up?

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Sounds like my case, I started with 140 in my first 3 attempts. I finally achieved 160 in November 2019 lsat after so many attempts Message me if you want my testimony .

But short word, I regret not listening to Dave and other powerscore experts recommendations including hiring lsat tutor , (i know they are expensive, but definitely significant time saver in regards sudden score increasing )
