You always want to be prepared. When you walk into a test, you want to be so familiar with the material that nothing could surprise you. Even if the test-makers try to throw you a curveball, you want to be so prepared you can just nod knowingly and say “That’s a curveball” and hit a Reggie Jackson moon shot. It’s important that you be prepared when you take the LSAT and, just as important, that you feel prepared.
So proactive students should start thinking in advance about how much time they’ll need to feel ready on test day. For some people, two months of studying suffices. Others – depending on study habits, learning styles, and schedules – will need more time. If you think two months might not be enough, it’s wise to start studying sooner.
