June LSAT Takers – Practice. Review. Prepare.
(The following is a guest post by M.N. Akbari at LSATMax).
I’d like to go over the three main things you should be doing from now till test day: Practice. Review. Prepare.
Remember that LSAT prep is subjective—every student is different. Your friends might be advocating taking a practice LSAT each day, and that may work for them, but it doesn’t necessarily have to work/be the right way for you. Taking a practice test a day is very tedious and overwhelming. Try to take at least two exams a week, preferably one on the next two Mondays starting at 12:30 pm. The rest of the time should be spent taking timed sections. At this point, everything should be timed. You need to constantly be working on timing, but that doesn’t mean you have to tire yourself out by taking practice test after practice test.
Taking practice LSATs is not the only way to study. After each practice LSAT or individual timed section, it is imperative to review and analyze. Go over EVERY question: correct and incorrect. You need to really understand why you are getting the answers right and apply that understanding/technique to the ones you are still getting wrong. Most of your score improvement comes from this step.
(3) Prepare for Test Day
• Start sleeping and eating well now
• Stay hydrated
• Wear layers to your testing center
• Know where your test location is and how best to get there
• Bring a snack
• Know everything you need to bring on test day (and what you can’t bring!)
• Relax: try not to overload yourself
I know you’ve been studying hard for the past few months: taking prep tests, practicing drills, going over Logical Reasoning, Logic Games, and Reading Comprehension section after section. With just over two weeks left until the exam, many of you might still have questions. Don’t worry, LSATMax has got your back.
Whether it’s a few specific problems or a quick general refresher on Sufficient & Necessary or Group Games, we want to answer your questions. Regardless of what LSAT prep course you are/were taking (if any) we want to offer you FREE access to our FULL course from now up to the June LSAT.
• Don’t understand something your instructor tried to explain?
• Missed the lecture on Strengthen questions?
• Don’t understand the technique for quantifier words in Logical Reasoning?
• Just want a grand overhaul on all your LSAT knowledge?
We got you!
