Same thing!!!

I was doing the 6 hour/day studying before the December test - by the end of November my practice scores were still around 154 so I postponed to Feb.  I kept studying, but not nearly as much - more like 2 hours/day 3-4 days/week.  In January I took 2 weeks off of studying - took a practice test right after that and scored a 161 (my highest so far).  I've been getting a lot more practice problems right then I was before.
It must be because I'm more relaxed now for some reason, I hope I stay calm until after the test!

oh no not another one of these threads! I totally was into that mentality but if you give it a blase attitude, you might screw up and be careless- lesson is, its better to have a little obsessive caring to balance out your say la vie attitude

There should be a happy medium. Don't adopt a careless "whatever happens, happens" attitude about studying for the test; at the same time, don't spend every waking hour thinking about it. Maintain, dude, maintain.

I think you are on to something.

I am engaged and my fiance looked at me last night and said, "I will be so glad when the test is over". He said I haven't been very nice.  :'( It's not like I am trying to be mean, but the stress of the test is getting to me. I want to do something with my life and not get stuck in the admin job I have. I have taken the LSAT before and failed miserably (140). I blame it on the crappy LSAT Prep class I took at my local university....So two years later here I am taking it again. I have the test in 8 days on February 10.

What did you do the week before the test? Did you do full time practice tests, or just review the ones you had taken?

I need to breathe and relax. For those of you who received a 160 or higher on the actual test how did you study the week before the test?

DON'T freak out this week and take too many tests or practice sections.  You will stress yourself out, burn out on everything LSAT, and ultimately destroy your chances of getting the score you want.  Do one or two difficult games, one or two reading comp. passages, and then go through the types of arguments.  Studying the arguments saved me on the LSAT the second time I took it because I knew what the test writers were looking for.  Make some flashcards or something.  However, DO NOT look at anything LSAT Thurs or Fri.  If you're the type of person who does better on the third section on, get up on Saturday and do a few questions in each section.  If you're the type to burn out after the break, don't do ANYTHING after Wednesday. You're as prepared as you're going to be. 

Good luck!!

law school cutie, are you Chinese or Korean? I heard Asian people are smart.  :) :) :) :)
btw I think studying obsessively hard always helps to a certain degree.  ;D
