How long did you prepare or study for the LSAT?

The optimal time is 100-200 hours.

Oooh ooh that's me! 169.   ;D

Let's see.  How long?  How many hours? 

For me, my study period lasted around 6 months.  How long did I study each day?  Every bloomin' chance I got.

Not much at all.  In retrospect, one of the dumbest things I did this year (right behind watching DVDs when i could have been revising for finals).  160 was near as makes no difference to being a diagnostic test.  Looked through a few sections, tried to work on logic skills a little... I've already done way, way more work for my retest (I plan to nail this cow in sept/dec) than for the first one.

I probably studied on average 5 hours a week between early February and mid April. I didn't study at all until classes ended in late May. In the three weeks prior to the test, I studied approximately 5-7 hours a day.

I studied sporadically for about 3 months prior to the test, probably somewhere around 50 hours total.  I wish I'd taken more full-length timed practice tests.

Just got a 160 on my first testmasters diagnostic (which is a real test). So, 0 hours.

I studied probably 5-7 hours a week for six weeks. The last 10 days or so it was probably a little more because I took a few more full-length tests. I do wish I'd done more.
