Hey —

Here’s some advice specifically for students seeking 170+ scores — — you may be most interested in the extreme drilling exercises —

Just a quick caveat — those extreme exercises should be done on top of, rather than in lieu of, the more standard drill work you (and everyone else at every score level) ought to be doing — that which is assigned in the Trainer schedules or perhaps your own DIY schedule — to get that type of score you really need to be strong across the board, and you need to, in your studies, make sure you are covering all your bases and getting as strong as you can in all areas — and so one temptation you want to avoid is to focus just on the hardest or most unusual problems — you also want to avoid the temptation to try and learn the most technical and “advanced” seeming strategies and methods — there is no challenge on the LSAT that cannot be thought of and dealt with simply once you correctly understand it —

Hope you find the links helpful and let me know if you have any follow-up q’s — Mike
