I was going to try to give you lots of advice, but I boiled it down to practice, practice, practice.  At a minimum try to spend 45 minutes once or twice a day working a section timed, scoring it, and reviewing what you missed.  Work the earlier test and move to the later ones, they'll be closer to what you'll see in October.  Set a pace and learn to track it.  For example, LR gives you roughly 80 seconds per question.  I learned to recognize when I was falling behind pace and stop spending time on hard questions - narrow the choices, take your best guess and move on.  Don't skip questions in the LR, it wastes time and you won't be able to go back, reread it and put more thought into it than you did the first time.  The pencil tracking in RC helps a lot with focus and keeping you place.  Occasionally in LG, later questions will give you a clue to earlier ones, so you may try skipping a question in a scenario, but once you leave the group, don't go back.

Don't worry if you choke on a practice exam - my practice scores spanned 12 points and I ended up higher on the actual than any of my practice.

Sorry, I did end up giving lots of advice - feel free to ignore any of it and good luck.

Trevor - what's a symbolic systems degree?  Am I reading your tag line right?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Pencil?

When I took the June 14th LSAT, the proctor walked around at the last minute and snagged a couple bottles of water from people.  I didn't see anything else taken, just water.  I had a small bag with Kleenex, pencils, etc. and I think you'll be fine if you keep it out and aren't digging through a backpack during the test.  You should be able to call ahead to the site and see what specific rules they have.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: How much education?

There was one pro-student when I was doing my undergrad - he was like 32, working on his 3rd or 4th undergrad, being an RA in the dorm, working in the cafeteria - don't know if it was a huge fear of the real world or just smarter than the rest of us.

MSME - gotta believe it helped score high on the LSAT, hope it helps offset lower UGPA.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Simulating LSAT Environment
« on: August 13, 2004, 09:31:55 PM »
I practiced in the den, with the kids in the other room knocking on the door about every 20 minutes wanting to know if they could play on the computer yet.  Dogs barking everytime the doorbell rang, Sponge Bob playing too loud in the background, the phone ringing from my sister-in-law wanting to know where my wife was, etc.  Made the actual LSAT seem way too quiet - concentrating was a piece of cake though.
