Ok thats great, thanks. So you gave around 1min40s per question. Is it better to have little variation across groups, mostly around a minute per question in SC and use remaining time in pushing up RC. Anyway, what was your break up in tackling RC's: If I assume 4 RC's with 3,3,4,4 questions so it w...

You are asking if I were 100% ...

maihuna, LSAT should be fine I guess, I have heard they are good. But I haven't done them myself. I did only OGs and Manhattan RC.

Keep it up Maihuna, as I said I am very average, if I can do it,...
