LSAT Prep

T
he week of your LSAT, wake up every morning at the same time you’d wake up on test day. Go to the library or an empty classroom and take the full LSAT, taking breaks whenever you’d take them on test day, going to the bathroom only during allotted break periods, etc. A week later, on the actual day of the exam, you’ll wake up mentally fresh and ready to dominate. While your fellow test-takers are still rubbing the sleep from their eyes, you’ll be psychologically prepared because of your new and improved daily routine.

P
ractice tests, Practice tests, Practice tests. I only self-studied for the LSAT — so if you don’t want to spend tons of money on an expensive course, that’s always an option. Starting 6 months before the test I worked through the PowerScore bibles and took at least one practice test per week. The month before the test I took a fully timed (important!) practice test every weeknight for 3 weeks. You’ll be exhausted by the end and that’s a good thing. Take the week before the test off and just do one (timed) test two or three days before the test. If you want to get practice tests for cheap, I’d recommend the LSAC’s “10 Actual LSAT’s” book series.
