Last Minute Study Tips for the LSAT
If you’ve been preparing for the LSAT, you’re probably tired, overloaded and ready for a rest. But with the next test date right around the corner, now is not the time to quit studying. In fact, now is the exact time to re-focus, re-load and re-invest in some last-minute LSAT study tips:
Take a timed pre-test. The LSAT is as much about time management as it is about critical thinking and knowledge. Make sure you have a good test-taking rhythm by taking a timed pre-test.
Stay positive. Yes, you’re tired. You just want it all to be over. Yes, you might be tempted to develop a negative attitude. No, you shouldn’t quit. In fact, now is the time to stay positive attitude. A positive attitude can increase your score significantly.
Talk it out. Believe it or not, other people who are preparing for the LSAT can offer a wealth of valuable information. Visit websites that focus on LSAT preparation. Look at the comment sections. Ask questions. You’ll be surprised how much valuable information your fellow test takers can provide.
Take good care of yourself. There is nothing worse than taking a potentially life-altering test when you’re run down, tired or sick. Make sure to get enough sleep (at least eight hours) in the nights leading up to the test. Eat right. Drink plenty of water and keep yourself healthy.
Get out and check out your testing center. You don’t want to be stressed on the morning of your test day. So prior to the day, get out and go check out your testing center. Make sure you know how to get there. Make sure you know where to park. Make sure you know where to enter. Being prepared will take off some of the test-day pressure.
Prepare your go bag. You will need a lot of things for the test. Make sure you know where everything is by putting it all into a plastic “go bag.” Pack your ID, pencils, erasers, tissues, any medical products you need and anything else that is essential. Place it by the door and check it at least twice the night before the test.
Relax. Focus. Be confident. Yes, sometimes a little bit of swagger and a calm, confident attitude can go a long way towards helping you succeed.
