Bit off topic but I was wondering if anyone ran into this problem.

I practiced for a long time before I took an LSAT - first test 166, then a 171, a 173 and then BAM last night down to a 164

This really concerns me.  I could tell at the beginning of the test that I just did not have it, but was wondering if this had happened to anyone else.

It really freaks me out, depending on how I am feeling could swing the score bigtime.

When you take the real test did you find yourself more in tune than ever before? 


I wouldn't worry.  I practiced tested around 165-170, choked on one test - something like 159 / 160 if I remember.  Put everything away for two weeks and then came back to it three weeks before the test and hit it again.  I ended up with a 172 and thought I was much more focused during the real thing than I ever came close to during practice.

For the June LSAT:

Hardest - Easiest

LR - Exp RC - RC - LG

The LG for the June LSAT was easier than the 20+ previous ones I practiced.

My LSAT sessions ran in 45-60 minute blocks during the week and 1.5 to 2 hours + on weekends.  Most of it consisted of practice exams (past LSATs) under timed conditions.  Then I reviewed the wrong answers and tried to understand the resoning behind the correct answer.  During the week I'd hit one section at a time and the string 2-3 together on the weekend.  For variety, I worked through LSAT 180 from Kaplan.  I also studied at home with the TV, kids, dogs, etc.  This forced me to concentrate much harder and I was surprised during the June test how easy it was to stay focused.  I also worked through a couple essay sections just to get a feel for the time constraint.  I started 3+ months out, took 2 weeks off in May and then came back for a final push in late May early June.  Time is the killer, try to pace yourself for a 30 minute limit per section, you will like that extra 5 during the exam.
