You need to focus on verbal get the following books and do all the problems: - The Official LSAT Super Prep - The next 10 Official LSAT Prep Tests - Manhattan SC book. In LSAT books do the RC section and Logical Reasoning sections(Like CR) aim to miss 5 or less and disregard their timing constraints (use gmat average timing per question ~ 2min or less) -For SC use OG books aim to do like 30 at a time and miss only 2 to 3. Haven’t taken real thing yet, but this has significantly improved my verbal score. (V35 to v47)

OG problems 100%. But before you do that, google Veritas GMAT sentence correction and watch part 1, 2, and 3.

You seem to be okay on Q. Need more on Verbal. So focus on that. Can’t stress enough on maintaining an error log to identify which types of questions you get wrong and what errors you make e.g. didn’t read the question correctly, didn’t apply the concept etc. and definitely use the OG. Good luck

Its only 30 points... I personally thinking it’s very reasonable in 2 months!

I went from 640 to 700 in a month. You can do it. Are you a native speaker? If so I really agree with focusing on SC and RC. No experience with using LSAT books though

D4 - any recommendations on resources to use for native speakers to improve SC? Besides manhattan prep book. Manhattan prep book seems too fundamental to me.

OP- yup. Took a week off to do around 6-8hr days doing practice sets of 10 questions and reviewing

D2, aim to miss 5 or fewer*

Nope not at all

I have somebody more Senior than me that is trying to majorly pad a change order for the client to boost their numbers. I’m not talking about adding an extra buffer for potential overages, I’m talking about a whole extra team that the client does not need and my counterpart “in the trenches” has said as much (and I agree with) when we did our quarterly capacity planning exercise. I voiced the concern and it was dismissed. I think it will hurt us with the client. How do I address this?
