Of course, you won’t want to make any major changes in strategy without testing them first, but it’s probably worth giving these a try as you practice over the next couple days to see if they help.

How to Spend Your LSAT Eve

It’s that time folks: LSAT Eve.

In celebration, you should be doing exactly the opposite of what you’d be doing if this was a Biology exam: NOTHING. There’s no cramming allowed because you know the concepts, the logic, and the method, so today is a time to unwind a bit. You’ve earned it.

For many of you, that may involve heading to the mall for some early Christmas shopping.

For others, that may involve heading to the mall to make fun of some early Christmas shoppers. Look at ‘em. It’s simply too early to be wearing reindeer antlers.

5 Things to Do Before the December LSAT

It’s almost show time. You’re in the December LSAT’s green room. It may be a less exciting place than a real green room, but regardless, you’ve got to be ready to perform. Here’s what you should do this week. (Stay tuned to the blog tomorrow for a post about what you shouldn’t do this week. We got you covered.)

Do a targeted review of the areas you still have trouble with.
The LSAT is a test of skills. You can’t cram for it. But you can and should brush up on your weaker areas a little, and do some targeted practice. This is especially true if you find that your accuracy has slipped in a particular area. Try to get it back. Review with an eye towards refining your approach to the questions, and try to solidify your understanding of exactly why the answers are right or wrong.
