Title: Pookie's LSAT advice
Post by: TDPookie1 on November 28, 2004, 01:15:13 PM
someone asked me for advice for the december LSAT today, and i started typing out what i feel like i've typed out 20 times before.  i made this one really comprehensive, and then decided to save it in a word document so i'd never have to type it from scratch again.  anyway, thought i'd post it here since it's less than a week before the december LSAT.

my LSAT advice

first, some day before advice: relax, do something fun.  and tiring, so you can fall asleep the night of.  my sister took me out for a day of girl stuff (got manicures/pedicures, went shopping for hours for graduation dresses, etc.)

NOT the day of: take a ziploc bag and put all your materials in it - pencils, erasers, one or two pens, your admission ticket, your ID (drivers license or passport; check your admission ticket for what other forms are acceptable), your timer, extra batteries for your timer, kleenex, your headache medicine of choice (i recommend excedrin tension headache for those headaches caused by stress), some little snacks (like candy bars and tic tacs).  set aside a bottle of water too; my proctors said we could drink water as long as they didn't see us drinking it.  dress in layers so you're prepared for any room temperature.  i wore drawstring pants since it can get uncomfy sitting in jeans for a long period of time.  if you're a girl, take whatever products might be required at that time of the month, along with some midol.

if you're not familiar with the test site, do a practice drive over there the day before.

all this week, get in the habit of waking up at whatever time you need to wake up on saturday, and go to sleep early.  i require 8-9 hours of sleep, so that's how much i slept for about two weeks leading up to the test.  also get in the habit of eating at breakfast, if you don't already.

allow enough time on saturday morning to eat breakfast and get ready and everything without rushing.  i would get to the test center SUPER early (like, an hour early) and sit in the car while you're waiting and do some practice questions (more on this in the next paragraph) and then just relax.

practice questions: i found that when i took a test first thing in the morning, my first section was the worst because i was still warming up my brain.  so then i started doing a page or so of practice LR questions just to warm up, and my score instantly shot up to what it was when i took evening practice tests.  the day of the real test, i took a games section at home before leaving.  games were my best and favorite section, and i did the one from the blind diagnostic.  i got a perfect score, so it pumped up my confidence.  i drove to the test site and did some LR questions in the car, ones that i had already seen but i covered up the answer choice letters and ran through reasoning in my head.

what i wish i had done: one or two reading comp passages.  since i hadn't done reading comp in two days at that point, it would have helped me pace better.  what i suggest: do one or two reading comp passages that you haven't already done, BUT don't look at the correct answers afterwards.  if you get some wrong, you might get frustrated and go in with lower confidence.  and you probably won't learn anything new at that point.  just get your mind back in the 8:45 reading comp track.  if i had done that, i think my score could have been 1 or 2 points higher.  my first section was reading comp, and part of my problem was that i didn't pace myself well and finished just in time, whereas i had usually been finishing with several minutes to spare, which i used to review my answers once more.

when you leave your car to go into the room, leave your materials behind.  your prep is over, you've done all that you can do.  take a deep breath and walk in with confidence.  and kick LSAT ass!

best of luck!!

This is really good advice -- thanks! You mentioned that you did really well on the Games section. It's my worst section, so I'm interested if perhaps you've developed, on your own, any unique and specific  strategies (rather than those found in, e.g., LG Bible or PR) that you might be able to share. My biggest problem is running out of time, so I wonder if you have any advice on that. Thanks!

please note that i modified my post after someone pointed out that i forgot to put ID on the list of things that belong in your baggie.

i'm the worst person to ask for games advice.  i've done logic games for fun since 3rd grade, so it came really easily to me.  sorry!  browse this sub-board for topics about the games section and see what other people have done to improve on games.  if that doesn't help, start a new topic asking for advice.

good luck!

TEST CENTER PROCEDURES
The staff at each test center observes certain common procedures to ensure that
every examinee has equal testing time and that the operation of the center meets
LSAC’s criteria for standardized testing. The success of the administration depends
on your cooperation with these procedures.
-Do not telephone test center supervisors in advance. They have neither the
authority nor the information necessary to admit anyone until the day and time of
the test.
-Under no circumstances will supervisors allow a change in schedule.
-The supervisor will tell you when to start and stop work on each separately
timed section. When time is called you MUST put down your pencil.
-If you find it necessary to leave the room during the rest period or during the test,
you must obtain permission from the supervisor. You will not be permitted to make
up any time.
-Smoking is not permitted in the testing room unless a separate testing room for
smokers is made available.
-Dress in a manner that enables you to adapt to any room temperature.
-Eating and drinking are not permitted in the testing room. A break, usually 10 - 15
minutes, is given after Section 3.
-Visitors are not permitted, though LSAC authorized observers may be present.
-Only a No. 2 or H.B. pencil can be used to record answers on the answer sheet.
-All answers must be recorded on the answer sheet. Answers must be recorded only
during the authorized 35-minute time limit for each separately timed test section.
Answers recorded in the test book will not be scored.
-Only a No 2 or H.B. pencil or highlighter pen may be used to underline passages in
the test book. Ink or ballpoint pens are not permitted.
-Due to pre- and post-test administration activities, the overall length of the test is
long – up to 7 hours. The actual starting time of the test may vary at different
centers due to preadministration procedures.
-You may take a noiseless watch (without a beeper or alarm) to the test center.
However, the official time is kept by the test center supervisor.
-Scratch paper will be provided for the writing sample portion of the test only.
Scratch paper is not allowed for any other portion of the test. Computations or notes
are permitted in the test book.

disturbance; giving or receiving help; working on or reading the test during a time
not authorized by the supervisor, removing test materials or notes from the testing
room; taking part in an act of impersonation or other forms of cheating; failing to
follow the directions of test center staff; or using books, calculators, personal digital
assistants (PDAs), ear plugs, head sets, rulers, listening devices, paging devices
(beepers), cellular phones, recording or photographic devices, papers of any kind, or
other aids – you may be dismissed from the test center and/or may be subjected to
an investigation under the Law School Admission Council Rules Governing
Misconduct and Irregularities in the Admission Process.
-The LSAT is confidential. All test materials, including test books and answer
sheets, are the property of the Law School Admission Council and must be returned
to the test center supervisor at the conclusion of the test for return to LSAC after

I totally agree with Pookie about practicing a section or two in the morning before the test.  It's so hard to keep the pace that you really need a warm-up to remind yourself.  Stay away from the really nervous people waiting anxiously outside the testing center.  One guy was so worked up I started to get worked up.  I also recomend mildly dehydrating yourself in the day or two before the exam to avoid the having to pee during sections.  I know it's not healthy, but it's a once in a lifetime kind of thing, right?

go for a 10 mile run the day before the test.  There is nothing as important as a super-refreshing night's sleep.  Plus, hard core exercise causes you to wake up extra alert.

i'm with vagrant.  go on a 10 mile run if that's something you normally do.  don't do anything that's totally new for you.  if you don't normally drink coffee, don't start on LSAT day.  if you don't normally eat breakfast, well, start eating breakfast so you'll be used to it on LSAT day, because you really shouldn't be hungry.

I want to add to Pookie's list although it might actually be on there already (I couldnt get through the whole thing).

Stay off LSD as much as possible on Friday.  Last go round people were so nervous and so worried that I think it spread to other takers.  Dont psych each other out this time at least!

If you cant stay off LSD, just make sure you dont visit the LSAT board.  In fact, dont even talk about the test at all.

I am going to spend all day friday f-ing around making recordings with a friend of mine and then come home and watch the state 3A highschool football game, as per Pookie's advice.  Well, she didnt explicitely tell me to do this but, you know what I mean.

One addition:

I brought my CD Player and rocked out to some Billy Joel during the break.  A lot of people will want to talk about the test, questions from the first 2 sections, etc...  This can be VERY bad for your following 2 sections. 

I immediately plugged in my headphones and started listening to music the second the proctors told us to put down our pencils.  I went to the bathroom, took a leak, and then just walked around and stretched out my legs.  I didn't turn off the CD player until they started handing back the tests.  I'm not claiming there's a direct causal relationship here, but I ended up only missing one on the games section where before I normally would miss at least 3 or 4.  I think being relaxed after the music helped me quite a bit. 

I highly agree with pookie about practice questions.  I had my mom drive me to my test site (about an hour away) and when I got to the testing center I did about 15 LR practice questions.  I highly recommend only doing a clean copy of questions you've done before and got right, and not doing "new" questions and then checking to see how many you answered correctly--this will be counterproductive.  I also did one reading comp. passage just to get my brain into "long-range" mode.

I ultimately ended up scoring right within my normal band (161 - 164), and I was very happy I did so.

Good luck to all of you.

if you're not familiar with the test site, do a practice drive over there the day before.

Ok, I guess I have to be literal.  I didn't mean that you should actually run for exactly 52,800 feet.  The point is that you should thoroughly exhaust yourself through exercise so that you will sleep well.

And even if exercise is not something that you normally do, I guarantee that exercising the day before the test will not be bad for you.

Yes, stay off of it on Friday.  Then on Saturday afternoon come back here and start frantically discussing questions and answers that you only have a vague memory of.  That will really help settle you down.

Well for starters I was not sure what my chances were at the T14's, and since I liked Georgetown the best after visiting and sitting in on classes and from feedback from first year associates at my firm who went there, I figured it was worth going binding and improving my shot at admissions.

I also like that it is BIG, I went to a small undergrad school and was not a fan of everyone knowing me and knowing my business. Also, being in D.C. is a huge factor for me since my long term boyfriend just got a job there (Mr. Zeeebra is actually a Miss).

Post by: Praetor on February 08, 2005, 11:43:15 AM
Just wanted to give some advice, from someone who's written twice -- had a horrible day of the first time, and a good one the second time.

First off, if anyone has trouble sleeping and anxiety issues, speak to a doctor. They can help you (I took a muscle relaxer the night before the test). Don't just decide to take sleeping pills on your own, but do speak to a doctor if you think it will be a serious issue. I got two hours sleep before my first writing, and it showed. Second time I had a great sleep and got 170.

Morning of, I strongly recommend a few things:

1.) Get exercise. I had to write out of town, but if I'd been local I would have gone to the gym before writing. Instead, I went for a two mile run and did 100 pushups and situps before showering and having breakfast. It's really important.

2.) Take a 'mini lsat'. What I did was one game, one RC passage and 7 LR questions. I also cherry picked them, choosing a game that was straight forward and easy, an RC passage about something I enjoy and LR questions from the start of the test. Not only did it help me get my mind working, but it also gave me a lot of confidence going into the test having just written about 1/4 of an LSAT without getting a question wrong.

3.) Have a nutritious breakfast. This is critical. Don't just pop in at McDs or something. Have some eggs, OJ, something healthy.

4.) Listen to music rather than talking to people. You need to realize that the vast majority of people writing with you are going to do worse than you. Talking to them will just frazzle your nerves. Grab a CD that either inspires you or calms you down and listen to it before the test and at break. Do not talk to anyone.


Besides that, Pookie's advice is solid, if a little over-anxious. I would strongly recommend writing practice tests at 9am Wednesday-Friday. Getting used to think at that time is important.

Basides that, good luck to all.

Post by: TDPookie1 on February 08, 2005, 03:59:38 PM
re the workout/breakfast before the test, i might have written this in my original post, but i would only do that if you're used to doing it.  i used to never eat breakfast, so when i did eat right after waking up, i would get a stomachache.  i had to wait about two hours to eat anything.

the same advice backs up what praetor said about sleeping pills.  you really shouldn't do anything totally out of the ordinary or your mind/body might freak out.

good luck, feb test takers!  :)

See, I would have to disagree.  Though it seemed to work for the rest of you guys, so that's great - it's just a matter of the individual.  But, by the time I was finished with the LSAT, I couldn't have imagined taking any more test sections.  I never could have done practice sections before the actual test.  I would have been too burned out near the end.  I did warm up my mind in other ways, though...woke up early, moved around a lot, and listened to music (opera to be specific).  This helped me to function without stressing me out.  And listening to classical music before a test is supposed to be very beneficial.

Any advice on that?


I do not plan to "Study". I plan to take some sections here and there but don't intend to score the sections. The purpose will be to keep my LSAT mind in gear. Hence, I will not score the test because if I do, I will find out that (A) I'm in great shape and scored a 180 (which will not happen) or (B) that I’m not totally ready because there are still things to learn (which I already know and don't need to be reminded the day before the test!)

My advice: Go to a local Mexican restaurant and order the enchilada surprise and a margarita before the test.  Nothing will help your score more than sweating bullets trying not to crap yourself.  Good luck everyone.

Wow.


now, get out of the Pookie thread.

before I die of pity.

Pity for what?

You really think you are in the position to pity someone?  Well, I don't pity anyone because I am not in the position.

I guess you must be very accomplished.

Look at your face.  Your body is kinda okay.  But your face is really really...yuk. 

Tell me, you have freckles?  Also your jawbones are way too big.  You have a really fat face. 

What are you wearing?  Green??  yuk!

Anyways, nice picture.

Please ignore the troll.

A trip back through the pages will show many endorsements of Pookie's LSAT advice.

May there always be somewhere here to bump it for the new generation of LSDers.

Don't freak out...during the LSAT.  Be calm.  You all practice way to much, especially compared to the rest of the population. You will be fine.

Thanks for the tips, Pookie. When you suggest "covering up the answer choice letters and running through reasoning in my head," do you mean cover up the entire answers or just the choices letters (a, b, c, d, e)?
