What should be one month strategy to prepare LSAT Examination?
I would start with very basic & familiarization of different type of questions. Once you done with the basic questions then you take one practice test & just focus on the section. When you done, look at the performance, really look at the finding areas in the entrance you cover on. Try to find your weakness & analyse your performance, You wouldn’t keep the same mistake again & again. Doing section level practice is very important, Go back & Try to find out where you are wrong.
Understanding of your strength & weakness is something, Only you can do. You know yourself well. Alternately you can build up a test under the time limit to get the experience of real test from beginning to end.
