LSAT Marathon
« on: August 03, 2004, 11:33:08 PM »
I was considering doing 3 full LSAT preptests (12 sections and 3 random "experimentals") the saturday before the LSAT back-to-back-to-back.  I would allow myself a glass of water and one restroom break if I needed it during this time period. 

The purpose?

(1) Obviously more practice with questions and timing.
(2) The length of the test on the actual test day will pale in comparison and feel like a break. 

Disadvantages?

I do not see any other than it would really suck, not as much as foxnews, but it still would suck.  I do not think burnout would be an issue due to it being a week before the test.

Is this a reccomended course of action or not?

You can even put your toes into a clamp... and for every wrong answer... you have to make one full turn... thatll teach you to get that f-ing assumption right...!!!

I think you might run the risk of burning yourself out...up to you though, if you think you have the mental stamina to handle it.  Good luck!

Thanks for the well wishes.  As far as hunger... I plan on eating right before and just have to make it through all those hours on that meal.

Sounds like an ambitious plan, but if I were you I'd allow myself to eat.  You're talking about 9+ hours with no food.  My plan is to try to keep a regular eating and sleeping schedule leading up to test day so that I'm in good shape for the day.

If i were you, i would practice eating different foods... i noticed that when i eat Chili's (the restaurant, not the food) or Chinese i perform terrible... but if i eat salmon or chicken, i perform well... we should make a post about the correlation between what you eat and how well you perform.

I think that noise would be a great way to practice as well.  In my test center, the chairs squeaked like a mofo and the A/C made an incessant hum.  Add the coughs, page turns, and the one watch that beeped twice but was never found, and noise can be a factor that you're really not used to.
