By the way, in June LSAC implemented a new rule (along with the modified test date/centre changes) that makes it possible for you to take the test only once in a lifetime.

You're not serious, right?

No, that poster is not serious. Just trying to scare you all :)

6 days now. You're losing your touch VB.

Sorry 'bout that. I was thinking about going to church for a long time, and that drained me.

I do want to say, SCREW ALL YOU PEOPLE who are making us who are already nervous *&^% our pants even more with your lies and half-truths. I want to stay away from here but I won't. So I guess it is my own fault.

On another note. What do you guys think of resetting my wristwatch for every section?

In all honesty, I'm more concerned with keeping track of how long I have left vs actually knowing the time. So I have decided I am going to keep my watch at exactly 12/12 until the first section begins. Then I will plug in the tab and know that in exactly 35 minutes (at the 7) I will be done. Then at the end of the section, I will quickly twirl the time back 35 minutes to 12/12 again. Rinse and Repeat each time.

I figure even though I can tell time fine with a analog wristwatch, it just seems like wasted energy trying to figure out exactly when my 35 minutes will end if we start at say 9:07am or something. Knowing that my time is up at exactly a specific area will help me greatly and probably save me a few moments of hesitation and angst whenever I look at the clock.

Anyone else do this? Anyone choose not to do it? If so, why?

This is my plan.

And in other advice, relax. Breathe. In, Out. The test is the test. You can't do anything but take it and give it your best effort.

DiggZ, this is exactly what I do. Not only that, but to make it even easier? I went out and bought a cheap,
white-faced Timex that's really easy to read - tried it out last weekend in a proctored practice test and it worked
great.
Best of luck - I'm actually getting really excited! We're almost there!

You guys know that LSAC added a new supersection to the test right?

It's 100 questions long, comprises 50% of your score, and is composed of a collection of the most difficult logic games and reading comprehension passages from each variable section over the last 10 years.

Oh, by the way, you're only allotted 35 minutes for that section. It'll come after the writing sample.
