ok this is not the typical response but... you leave the exam room asap, do NOT talk to any law students, and get your a** to a bar. drink about three beers over the course of the afternoon. go out to eat with a non-law student friend. if you like, sober up and study that night--but i liked to declare test day a no-study zone. (during my first semester, i learned that even if i tried to study on a test day, i really got nothing done.) i prefer to watch a movie. if you must hang out with a law student, make a pact to NOT discuss exams.
basically, this helps in three ways:
1. you don't burn out over the course of the exam period.
2. you don't worry about things you can't change.
3. you have something to look forward to. instead of your inner dialogue saying, "damn, after this torts exam then there's civ pro..." you say "after this torts exam i'm having margaritas and watching Hoosiers [NOTE: movies about overcoming adversity are always good for this time!]."
good luck, especially for the 1Ls. remember, once you're an upperclassman you can arrange your course load so that you never have an exam period like this again.
You don't need to study for a whole year
okay so I have never really sat down and took practice test. I finally had to for the powersore class and did horrible. I wasn't prepared I couldnt focus, and I didnt feel like the room was quiet enough. So i scored a 136 (I totally guessed for the last section so I dont see how i can use that score as something to build on. Any advice or comments
I actually started to like logic games..... They were like my daily crosswords after awhile. I won't miss any of the other sections though.

Do NOT take a class = complete waste of money. Self prep is the best way to go and two months, if you use your time wisely, is a good enough amount of time to prepare. I would start with general guides, particularly Princton Review 2008-09
This is the absolute worst piece of advice I've seen on this board in months.
Can you expand on why it's such a bad piece of advice? That's like telling a waiter that your meal is lousy without giving any explanation as to why.
