Monday is Memorial Day, a holiday that celebrates how much people love three-day weekends and commemorates our country’s ability to forget what specific holidays really mean. If you’re like most Americans, you probably have a fun day planned in the park full of sunburns, mosquito bites, and day drinking. But the June LSAT is imminent! So, unfortunate as it is, you can’t spend the entire weekend away from your favorite standardized test. To assist, we’ve got some Memorial Day study tips to help you enjoy the weekend while studying for the LSAT.
Memorial Day Weekend LSAT Prep Tip #1: Don’t take the whole weekend off
The June LSAT is a little over two weeks away, and you can’t break away for a full three days. But do take one day for yourself. It’s important to not burn out, so taking Memorial Day off to go out with friends and family would actually be good for your LSAT prep progress. But don’t drink! Seriously. If you get plastered on Monday then Tuesday will be ruined for any meaningful study.
Memorial Day Weekend LSAT Prep Tip #2: Take an extra LSAT practice test
If you’re enrolled in an LSAT prep course, there’s probably no class meeting this weekend. But that doesn’t mean you should stop taking tests! Do a full practice LSAT this weekend to keep yourself on target for June. Make sure you also budget enough time to review your practice LSAT. People often just take practice exams and then forget about them, and that’s even more tempting when you know you could be outside enjoying the beautiful weather. But fight the urge! Reviewing LSATs is one of the most important things to do to actually get better.
Memorial Day Weekend LSAT Prep Tip #3: Spend a day focusing on trouble areas
You don’t have to kill yourself taking tons of practice LSATs this weekend, but you should do more than just a single practice exam. Spend one day going over your weaknesses. This won’t be as intense as a full LSAT, so it’ll help you from being too overwhelmed, while still letting you improve.
So enjoy the weekend, get some studying in, and by Tuesday you’ll be that much closer to the LSAT!
