Choose your test site carefully.  Had I not been warned ahead of time, I would have picked UCLA because it's in a better neighborhood, and ended up with a tiny fold-out desk in an auditorium instead of the giant tables and comfy chairs at Southwestern.

Can I ask, in what way does that help you?

LSAT before BROS before HOS, until testday Saturday night of course, when the logical chain is reversed.  This technique works well on the newer games.

Best advice I got was that it was just a test, and not the end all and be all of my life.. It really managed to calm me down, and I was not nearly as nervous for the actual test..

No coffee??!!  How is one to function without coffee in the morning?  :)   I plan on drinking coffee and then having energy gum during the test to chew QUIETLY to keep from crashing from the caffeine. I do agree that one should monitor the liquid intake to prevent potty breaks.

I have to agree with the "don't drink coffee" advice.  Drinking caffeinated beverages will make you jumpy and nervous, and make you want to pee during the exam. 

Just make sure you get 8+ hours of sleep the night before, and you won't be tired or slow.  Getting enough sleep is KEY to feeling relaxed and ready the day of the exam.
