Hello everyone! I am a SUPER newbie when it comes to the LSAT. I will be taking the test in October. I am a terrible test taker so I hope that I am giving myself enough time to study! Any advice anyone can give me would be very helpful.

Hey everyone! I am in the same boat as DoubleAgent, LSAT newbie. I have just started studying for the October test and I am very overwhelmed.

* Planning to take the October LSAT
* My target score will need to be about a 165
* I have been studying for about one week
* Haven't picked up any study materials yet, just a couple of practice LSATs

* Taking the LSAT most likely in Oct. or Dec.
* Need whatever score it takes to get into the good DC area schools (Georgetown, GWU, George Mason).
* Have hardly started studying again after briefly entertaining the idea of law school a few years ago.
* Used "LSAT for Dummies" and "Super Prep" in my last attempt. Currently in the market for newer/better books.

Hello! I'm studying for the June exam. At 50 years old and entrenched in a career, I do not anticipate going to Harvard or even an ABA school. I'm hoping to get into a California accredited law school that offers a night program. I've been working through the SuperPrep book and I'll be taking a six-week course on Sundays that begins on April 25 from Sherwood. I love the mental challenges that the LSAT problems pose. But the speed at which I've been answering questions on the practice tests gives me some cause for concern. That's my biggest worry.

Hello all! I am new here and I am planning on taking the October LSAT. I purchased a couple books so far, but haven't even opened them yet. Maybe that would be a good place for me to start!  ;D

Howdy all! I am brand new to the board. Here are my stats:

When are you taking the LSAT? I am planning on taking either the October or December LSAT. I haven't decided yet.
What is your target score? I'd like to score in the high 150s or low 160s, but I need to do more research on the schools I want to apply to to see if that's a good score.
How long have you been studying? Not long at all. I just took my first practice test last week and scored a 140, so I'm pretty discouraged right now.
What materials are you using to study? I don't know about that either. I've heard of a bunch of companies and different books, but am still figuring things out.

I'm new here.  I'm planning to take the October test if I feel ready by then.  Target score = as high as I can get - duh! -  Realistically I would be happy with something mid to high 160's range.  If I could get 170 or more that would be fantastic but according to the percentiles of how many people get that high I'm not going to make that a do or die goal.  I'll just keep my hopes up but look at 170 or higher as a dream score.  From what I read so far about admissions stats for the schools I'm interested in, with my GPA it seems like I would have a good chance of getting accepted even with a low 160's score.  I'm not out to get into one of those snooty top ranked schools, just the arrogance of those boys that get into those LS's is enough to repel me.
I started looking at study stuff and reading through stuff recently but haven't really studied much.  Mainly been figuring out what this test and the application process is all about and how it works.  Haven't decided how to prep yet.  Last week I spent almost the whole day at barnes and noble sitting on the floor going through all the different LSAT prep books.  Doing that made my head  ;stars;
