I think it's actually a good idea not to study very much before the test. It's not like you're cramming information. You should let the skills you've acquired settle.

Have a few drinks, relax, maybe take a practice test if you have time or just do a few sections.

But the big thing is not to be overwhelmed with anxiety about it, it's only going to be detrimental.

thanks for the advice.
it's just another exam that will decide where i'd go for school the next three years.
i was quite anxious before i took the sats back then, and now i realize, unless i had  messed up totally, i would have been happy anyways..

life goes on no matter the lsat.

PT 50 today, 51 tomorrow and just a couple of sections in the AM on Friday.  No booze until Saturday night after the test.  Broiled salmon and cottage cheese for dinner Friday night; yogurt and grapefruit Saturday morning.  Multi-vitamins, fish oil capsules every day.  Lucky hat and a bazillion No.2 pencils...gotta get my game face on.   ;D

Going without ten cups of coffee Saturday morning will be hard to do, though...

Your not alone!  I just posted the same subject and then I saw your post.  Sorry.

Anyway, I am sick and tired of it.  Work, family, life and some how the LSAT for 4 -5 months.

Hang-in there!

u kno what.. at this point in the game.. confidence is key1! when i have confidence going into a PT i score good! however, when that confidence is lacking i make stupid mistakes.. also time.. bahhh! i need to control time and not let it control me...
i am also a game player.. hoping that comes into effect.. i have already taken it twice and really, i am going to law school regardless a better score will just get me into a better school, or money.. in the end, it is only a test and i will not let it control my life!!!!
PS--i am really glad my testing center is about 5min to the nearest liquor store.. bc i am getting freakin bombbbeddd!!!!!!!!11 whos with me?!?
3.41 (3.8 last 3)
148/150/15x (hoping.. perhaps an 8?!? haha!)

I'll get bombed after the LSAT as long as no one rats me out for calling in sick to work the next day.   ;)

I haven't been studying since the September test.  I figure I had a bad test day, and I don't need to do a billion prep tests over again to get over it.  I have been doing sections here and there to keep my timing right, but other than that, I am just going in hoping for the best.  Famous last words, right?

My point is, if you have been studying consistently for the past 9 months, you can't do any studying this week that will make or break you.  Relax.  Good luck on Saturday!

word of advice that i did not take... don't cram this week.  take it easy and just do light review. i did practice tests until the end and burned my self out.  my brain was totally fried.  if you care enough to be on this board, you care enough to have prepared for this.  confidence is totally key.  just relax and do your thing.

good luck everyone!!!!!

p.s. rugercaptian~  does the name imply at all that you play(ed) rugby?  if you played rugby and live in OH (thought i saw that on one of your posts)- there's a 99% chance we know each other.  just curious~

You know, someone else on this board asked if I knew rugby songs.  ???  I'm totally clueless.  My screen name is a combination of Ruger (gun manufacturer) and Captain (my rank at the time I first went online).  Although I think I would make a damn fine rugby player...I at least have the drinking part down.  Well, that and I'm "family." :D

"captain"? Air Force? Army? Navy?

i must laugh though, i did assume rugby partly because i realize you're family (too  :)).  and yes, if you know how to drink, you have half the of the game down!
