Hey —

Here is a list of steps you can take to review your LR — as I always say, you know yourself best, so please feel free to utilize whatever helps and to ignore whatever you feel like ignoring ðŸ™‚ —

Some big picture goals to keep in mind — you want to gain/refine your understanding + develop/refine positive methods/habits —

1) First time experiencing LR Q, in PT, section, or drill set, try to solve it exactly as you would during the exam. As you are doing so, also mark (for future reference) qâ€™s for which you are not 100% certain of the right answer, as well as qâ€™s you canâ€™t figure out at all.

2) Next, return to the problems and solve them again, this time untimed and with every effort to fully understand the problem and confirm the correct answer. Think carefully about how you solved the problem the first time, and assess which steps you took were helpful and (perhaps more significantly), where you wasted time in ways you wish you hadnâ€™t. Revise your markings of qâ€™s that you werenâ€™t 100% sure of / couldnâ€™t figure out.

3) Look up correct answers.

4) Think about how you performed relative to these correct answers — pay particular attention to qâ€™s you felt certain you got right but missed. For all qâ€™s, see if, knowing what the right answer, you can reverse engineer the underlying structure of the q. Again, think about how you could have solved problems correctly in real-time.

5) For problems where you just canâ€™t figure out why the right answer is right, after youâ€™ve made sure to struggle as much as you can first on your own, check solutions from reputable sources — for LR, I recommend the LSAT Hacks solutions and the Manhattan LSAT forums —

6) Try problems again timed and as realistically as possible and expect to perform significantly better.

I understand you are close to test day, so you have to try and weigh the benefits of doing more practice vs going more in-depth with your work — so, thatâ€™s a tough call, and youâ€™ll need to figure out how to balance that, but, in terms of reviewing LR, I hope the above gives you some ideas —
