Advice on conserving fresh PTs?

Postby 239840 » Sat Apr 06, 2019 5:34 pm

I'm retaking the LSAT in June and am wondering if anyone has any advice on how to best conserve/space out the fresh PTs I have left. I have around 15 fresh PTs left in the 37-60 range, but I only have 5 fresh PTs left in the 70s and 80s. The thing is, I'm currently planning to take the June LSAT with the September administration in mind as a back-up option since it's fully digital (if I end up having to switch to the digital format, and hopefully I won't need to, I'd rather go into test day knowing it'll be completely digital than have the uncertainty of July's test I think) and still early for the upcoming cycle. Should I just go ahead and use the most recent tests in preparing for the June administration, or would it be better to split them up somehow? I've read people say that PT'ing with the tests in the 30s and 40s is just as useful since the test largely hasn't changed aside from comparative reading, and I figure that's probably pretty accurate. I'd even consider just going in numerical order, as I could just do some sections with comparative reading (some of which might be redoes) as timed sections or "experimental sections." Thanks for any input in advance.

The older PTs are generally fine for learning the concepts. Some question types have fallen out of favor while others have gotten more popular, but the general principles are the same. As long as you have taken the newer ones and familiarized yourself with the skills they are emphasizing you should be fine.

Thanks. Yeah, I'm leaning towards just starting with the earlier PTs. Sure, they don't have comparative reading, but I can't imagine they're that much different otherwise. I usually find the comparative passages the easiest anyway since they're less dense. Unfortunately, though I mostly liked the LSAT Trainer, I used up PTs 62-71 going through it - however, it may have been long enough by now that I could redo some of those LR and RC sections without remembering that much. I already foolproofed the LGs in that set of actuals, though, so they wouldn't work for full PTs.
