12 Tasks That Will Turn You Into an LSAT Hercules

The Legend of Hercules opens in theaters today. In honor of this latest rehashed plot, here are the 12 Herculean LSAT Tasks that will forgive you for the sins you’ve committed against your LSAT score — like taking practice tests in the afternoon, or doing them in pen.

Herculean LSAT Task I: Memorize the Common LSAT Logical Reasoning Flaws

For your first Herculean LSAT task, I want you to memorize all of the common LSAT Logical Reasoning Flaws. On any given LSAT, knowing these flaws will be the key to getting the right answer for at least 40 questions. Let that sink in.

Blueprint LSAT Prep students, you know where to find these in your books.

2013 December LSAT Blog Carnival

The internet is a wonderful tool. Not only can you use it to further your knowledge in literally any area (say, quantum entanglement)or to connect with any other person in the world, but it also has a ton of awesome reactions from people who took the 2013 December LSAT.

Let’s take a look at a few, shall we?

For starters, if you thought all those December LSAT testing centers that closed due to inclement weather was an unfortunate situation, read this Tumblr’s encounter of a no-show proctor.

Hani here was ready for his December LSAT — and has the Ziploc bag mirror selfie to prove it.

Meanwhile, Bree-zy went with the triple GIF to express her up-and-down December LSAT test day.

Relax Today if You’re Taking the December LSAT Tomorrow

‘Twas the night before the LSAT, and all through Blueprint HQ
We’ve crossed all of our appendages, wishing good luck to you!

… And that’s why I’m not a poet. But seriously, in case you didn’t know, the December LSAT is tomorrow — at least for those not buried under a sheet of ice.

For those of you who are facing the beast tomorrow, you should be taking today off from studying. You should assemble all of the materials you’ll need for the test, and if you haven’t already done so, you should also take a test drive to your December LSAT testing center to make sure that there won’t be any unexpected problems.

December LSAT Test Day: Do You Know What to Bring?

The December LSAT is two days away. You’ve come a long way to get this far, but there are few more things you need to know for Saturday.

What You Need to Bring on December LSAT Test Day

To get into your December LSAT test center you will need to bring the following items:

• December LSAT admission ticket with passport-style photo attached
• Photo identification
• One gallon clear plastic Ziploc bag

LSAC recommends that you wait until the night before the LSAT to print out your admissions ticket, since they may make some last-minute changes.

Make the Most of Your Final Days Before the December LSAT

It’s December 3, your Thanksgiving food coma has barely worn off, and you’re staring at the December LSAT coming up this Saturday. It’s your last week of LSAT prep before the December LSAT, so it’s important that you make the most of it.

By now, you should have finished covering all the kinds of questions you’ll see on the LSAT. Whether it’s your first time taking the real thing, or you’re an LSAT veteran, you should devote this week to timed practice: full LSAT practice tests and full timed sections. Of course, review them carefully. And if anything comes up that you need to review, do a little extra practice.

But don’t overdo it. If you’re a sleep-deprived wreck on December LSAT test day, you’ll erase any benefit you might have gained from studying like crazy this week.

5 Keys to Not Being a Turkey on December LSAT Test Day

Hank, our LSAT blog editor-at-large, gave me the topic of “5 Keys to Not Being a Turkey on December LSAT Test Day.” There’s no way I’m giving him a pass and coming up with something that isn’t as cheesy (plus, who doesn’t love cheesy? My holiday-themed movie marathon includes It’s a Wonderful Life, so clearly not this guy), so I present to you…

5 Keys to Not Being a Turkey on December LSAT Test Day

Key #1 to Not Being a Turkey on December LSAT Test Day: Anger, fear, aggression. The LSAT are they.

You’ll be going through a range of emotions over the next week and a half. In fact, you’ll probably go through the entire range of emotions over the next week and a half.

December LSAT Deadline Rundown: Last Chance to Register

Today is your final chance to register for the December LSAT. You’ll have to do so over the phone or online through the LSAC website.

You should know that the December LSAT is probably going to be your last chance to get an LSAT score in time for this application cycle. So, if you don’t register for the December LSAT, then you’re probably going to have to put off law school for a year.

If you’ve been studying for the December LSAT for the past two months, but for some reason haven’t registered for it yet, you need to do so immediately. Also, if you know you won’t get another chance to study for the LSAT, you should go ahead and register for the December LSAT.

There is still a lot of time left for you to improve your LSAT score.

Off the Agenda the Day Before the October LSAT: Studying

So, here we are: the day before the October LSAT. And guess what – you’re not going to study today. Nope, not at all. I forbid it. If you so much as crack an LSAT-related book, you will incur the wrath of an omniscient LSAT instructor who will rain gentle disapproval upon your head.

In all seriousness, it’s really important to take the day off from studying for the LSAT. Nothing good can come of studying today – you won’t teach yourself anything that you haven’t already learned in your months of LSAT prep, and you might actually freak yourself out more. If you don’t study, on the other hand, you’ll be feeling fresh and (relatively) relaxed before the October LSAT tomorrow.

Now that we’ve established that you’re not going to be studying today, what can you do instead?

A) Get a head start on calming those October LSAT test day nerves. Clear Admit.

B) Things just got even worse for Cooley Law School. Tech Dirt.

C) Now entering the Supreme Court ring: Raging Bull. ABA Journal.

D) Get your pajamas and umbrellas ready. The verdict in Michael Jackson’s wrongful death trial is in. CNN.

E) Banksy is up to his old shenanigans in New York. Animal.

Use Your Final Days Before the October LSAT Wisely

Here it is: the final week before the October LSAT. If you’re taking the LSAT this Saturday, it’s important that you use the next few days wisely.

You should be putting the final touches on your LSAT skills as you study. Take a timed test or two, do some timed sections, and review them carefully. Most of what you do should be close to what you’ll do on LSAT test day: 35-minute sections, with a clock. It isn’t the time to make any drastic changes to your technique, but try to identify your weak areas and tweak things as needed.

It’s just as important that you taper off the amount you study. You should put some good work in over the next few days, but not so much that it comes at the expense of sleep or sanity. The LSAT isn’t a test that you can cram for.
