I took my LSAT in Dec 2008 and had probably the panic attack of a lifetime. I still have nightmares about that sat afternoon. I pretty much dumped out my plastic baggy in the middle of the hallway to search for my identification which was in my pocket. There was money and everything everywhere. I started crying and then my mind blanked out. The only accomplishment about taking this exam is that this is the first standardized test that I have ever taken where I didn't fall asleep. Yes I fell asleep on my SATs ... twice. Anyways my score was 139 ashamed I was going to give up on law school. I do however really want to go it's all I ever wanted to do. I took 2009 off and debated whether or not I would study. I'm currently at a decent grad school and my grades are better than under grad. But I'm still concerned about the test. I took 1 practice test 6 months after the exam and scored a 157, which is what I was averaging before the exam. Not what I want I think if worst came to worst that I could get that at bare minimum on the exam. I have a lot of extra time, I'm willing to dedicate myself to this but how much time should I be spending on this? I would like to at the very least get a 165, my real goal is 170. I don't work, live a lone and I am a 5 min walk to the library. I've started practicing slowly to get back into the swing of things. I did the kaplan thing which was of no help to me. I am considering the powerscore LG bible though. I own all the test prep books, so I have the materials. I have 3.58 from undergrad and a 3.8 gpa from grad school so I'm not worried about that. Any advice at approximately how much time I should spending per day on my test prep to reach my goal of 170? Also any advice for calming my nerves is greatly appreciated.
