3-5 a week, depending on other work/life obligations.

That should have been last year this time...

I was working full time, so I would do 1 section timed each a night on M-F, followed by reviewing each question. Then I would do a full timed test on Sat. and another on Sun.

A few days before the test I pretty much stopped practicing so Id be fresh.

I did about three a week, doing some individual sections or studying of LGB or LRB on three other days of the week.

Ive tested both, and the 5 a week seemed to be seriously counter productive for me.  Now I am on a LR question (chapter in LR bible) type a day, example: 60 assumption questions in a row.... and a timed LG section every day.  Every day a new LR type goes bye a new flash card is done up with all the important notes about that type and I review those daily.  I have never had a problem with time however so this is more productive for me, for some odd reason I always end at 35 minutes heh, So I do one timed preptest a week on Friday.  This will be increased only in the last week which will be 5 section preps timed, 4 times a week.

In only did one actual full length test a week. I used the older tests for practicing individual sections, and the newer ones's for the full length tests. The last two weeks before the test, I bumped it up to three a week. 5 is just too much. You don't want to burn yourself out. The secret to improving your LSAT score isn't just doing tests, you have to review them over and over again to see what you're doing right and what you're doing wrong.

I'm doing 1/2 a test a day and then one full test once a week.  So that's like... 4 tests.  That's my goal at any rate.  It'll probably end up like more 2-3 a week b/c I'm a slacker kinda.
