Self-Prep For LSAT, Efficient Study Strategies?

Self-Prep For LSAT, Efficient Study Strategies?
« on: October 23, 2005, 02:29:20 PM »
Hi!
Would anyone like to share some thoughts on efficient study methods for self-prep for the LSAT?  Some folks have posted bits of info in the other threads.  How did you organize your time?  Better off studying straight for 8 hours/doing  some study every day or splitting your study into 2 separate sessions a day?
I realize this depends on available time, etc. but I would welcome insights as one can always learn new things.
Thanks!

Not only does it depend on available time, it depends on what works best for you.  I preferred studying in 2-4 hour blocks.  I cannot sit still for 8 hours.  I think the key is to plan ahead and stick to your plan.

I think taking one exam and going over each incorrect answer until you understand why you made the wrong choice is the way to go.  This will take about three hours.  Anything more than that seems like overkill.  I tried taking two exams in a day once and ended up doing awful on the second one.  Try to do this every day if you have the time.
