I'll be doing a lot of Reading Comp work, just getting myself into that mode (since I go in and out...).  And I'll also be prepping for a big midterm that I have on Friday...  Blah...

I took one PT on Friday and 2 yesterday, all timed, and I think that's it for me as far as full-length tests go. I'm going to keep practicing timed individual sections, and see if I can't up my LG score a little. And though I'm going to try my best not to do anything LSAT related on Friday, I'm not confident I can really stay away for a whole 24 hours. I may have become a bit compulsive in recent weeks....  ::)

what are ppl's thoughts about practicing on friday, the day before the exam? many ppl have told me to do absolutely nothing related to the lsat on friday, to take my mind off the test/chill/don't worry.  but i'm afraid taking a day off might be a bad thing, as well??

If you do anything, do an easy game you've done before, read and analyze reading comp but don't do the questions, things like that if you feel you have to do something. You don't want to take a test and exhaust your mind or get a bunch of answers wrong and shoot down your confidance level

If you don't know how to attack every section on the test before the Thursday before the LSAT, Friday isn't going to help you.

For my last few timed PTs I added a 5th section and a bubble sheet and I'll keep that up until my last timed PT.  I took a timed pt this morning - pt 52.  I'm doing 53 on Tuesday and 54 on Thursday.

I think I worked out some kinks for RC, which is good because I only score below what I'd like when I eat it on RC - which has been twice in the last couple of weeks.

Friday I'll get up early to promote a good night's sleep (maybe a bit of golf).  If a get some sleep Friday, confidence will be high.

I am trying to determine ideal beverage types for the day of. Don't think I can totally skip coffee, but too much and I'll have a problem. I really liked PJC's PowerAde suggestion. My bladder needs to be a non-issue. Ew.  :-X OK.....back to games...

Same here. Started practicing with bubble sheets and just redoing old tests now. Just finished PT 51 and did 52 and 54 last week. At this point, I can proudly--and sadly say that i've done every single game, RC, and LR that LSAC has ever created. I hope it all pays off on Saturday =)

Just thought I pop in and say 'hi' since I haven't been here in a while. Going into this Saturday a lot less sure of myself than I was a month and a half ago, but I'm still reasonably hopeful that I'll do well. My updated diagnostics are in my LSN profile in the sig.

I've still got the three most recent tests to take. I'm taking them Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday around the time of the actual test on Saturday.

Good luck everyone.
