The October LSAT is in 12 hours, and for those of you who suffer from test anxiety, I recommend that you read this book once you get a chance:Choke: What the Secrets of the Brain Reveal About Getting It Right When You Have To
by: Sian Beilock
Beilock's book nicely analyzes why we choke: how *does* anxiety affect our brain? Is there anything we can do about it? She details years of psychological research on the topic of "working memory," the brain's ability to retain many concepts simultaneously. She writes that, unfortunately, people with high working memory, and thus who would do well on the LSAT, often are the ones who suffer the greatest from test anxiety.
I suffer from test anxiety, but I have found that if I slow down, focus on flexing my working memory in an effort to retain all the data the LSAT throws at me, I'll perform better on complex questions. Beilock also recommends writing all your strengths and skills before the test to remind yourself that you're a "multi-dimensional" individual, and that this test does not define who you are.
Best of luck,
