Yeah, I'm a little confused about all of this LEEWS stuff and whatever, as I thought we were only tested on what was presented/assigned in class. I suppose I am kind of nervous at not having taken a test in the past ten years (other than the CFA and the LSAT), but I always did fine before. None of my classwork before was graded on a curve, so that will definitely be new. But it doesn't seem to change the fundamental dynamic of providing the best possible responses to the test questions.
And the amount of work doesn't seem outlandish. The high end estimate in one of the threads regarding the amount of reading was 450 pages per week, and people were saying probably 10 pages per hour, which is only 45 hours per week. Add in time for classes, and it's like... having a job.
I guess I'm saving my freak out period for mid-November through late December.
Read "Getting to Maybe" is my advice. It helped me know what sorts of things they test for, and what they want.
Yeah, I'm going to read that and "1L Confidential" once I get all this move stuff wrapped up. It's more the people studying actual content that I don't get. I guess everyone has their own jam for getting pumped up for the start of actual classes.
