Your Plan for the Last Week of Studying for the LSAT

I recently started the process of training for a marathon. As someone who has never done much distance running, I’ve been doing my best to follow a set training plan. The plan generally involves one progressively longer run per week and several short to medium runs. However, in the final couple weeks, the training plan tapers off and the intensity reduces. This is especially true in the last week of training prior to the race, which has just a couple, shorter runs to get you ready for the big day.

What I Wish I Knew About Test Day Before Taking the LSAT

While I was studying for the LSAT, I put a lot of stock in each practice exam score and even the individual questions I was practicing. Since the practice tests are one of the best indicators of how you’ll perform on the exam, I’d grade my practice exams with enormous stress and anticipation, as if those practice versions were going to determine my future. One thing I didn’t think about enough before taking the LSAT was how the actual test day would be different from practice. This is what I wish I knew about test day:

Looking Past Your Practice Exam Scores

As you know by now, after completing and scoring a practice exam, you get assigned a three-digit number. And as you must also know by now, that three-digit number carries quite a bit of weight. It can be a source of consternation or pride, of panic or promise, of dread or relief. In fact, that three-digit score can seemingly say so much that many test takers believe the score is the final word on that practice exam.

But here’s what you may not know yet: those three-digit practice exam scores don’t say as much as you think.

Enjoy a Healthy Diet of Practice Exams in These Last Few Weeks

This may shock you, but many pre-law types tend to fall toward the Type A end of the spectrum. Surprising, I know.

One side effect of this tendency is that many people who are studying for the LSAT want to overdo it. After all, if doing one practice test in a week is good, then doing seven practice tests in a week must be seven times better, right?!

Increasing Your Speed on the LSAT

If you took the LSAT home with you overnight and worked on it as long as you needed, chances are you’d find yourself with a very impressive score. Unfortunately for many of us, it’s the speeded aspect of the exam that makes everything else about the LSAT more challenging: you need more time to read

Avoid These LSAT Faux Pas

Some bad habits, like cracking your knuckles or picking your nails, are socially acceptable. But some bad habits are such faux pas that they can never be forgiven among polite company.

We hope that your parents have it covered when it comes to teaching you about social habits to avoid. But when it comes to LSAT faux pas, we’re your guys (and gals). Here are some things to avoid when you begin studying for the LSAT:

Building Confidence for the LSAT

Confidence is essential to performing your best on the LSAT. You can put in the hours studying and enter the test equipped with optimal LSAT skills, but the way you feel about the material and yourself is the last piece you will still need in order to achieve your best score. No matter how a student has prepared for the test, there are still things they can do as their exam day nears to boost their test-day confidence and give themselves the best opportunity to succeed.

Making The Last Weeks Before the July LSAT Count
