Speed will come with practice and familiarity, don't worry. That's an OK problem to have right now.
Right now, I think you ought to be familiarizing yourself with the test. Again, light study is the key. Maybe once a week, go over it for an hour or so. No more than that right now. Get one of the bibles (the games bible helped me more than I can possibly tell you) and start going through it. I did it a chapter at a time. I'd come home from work and just read through the chapter and do a few of the practice problems. Make sure you really understand what's in that section before moving on. Depending on your skills, it's a good idea to get all the relevant bibles and read them all.
Once you've done that, get a bunch of prep tests, like 20. Try the Real LSATs books (the recent ones, don't bother with the old ones). Work from the oldest to the newest.
Take the oldest prep test untimed, and see how it goes. Make sure you go over ALL the questions you missed, understand why you missed them. Then go through the questions you got RIGHT and make sure you understand why you got them right. That's often over looked, but it's important. And you've got tons of time, so you can have that luxury. Do a few of these, then move onto timed tests.
If you're finding that there's one section in particular that's really giving you problems, take just that section, untimed, then timed. And make sure you go over all the answers afterwards (even if that's totally not what you feel like doing, it's good for you).
OK, that's all my advice for now. Hope it helps.
