Just a question about scheduling my final few PT's

Postby Madman » Thu Jan 28, 2010 9:39 pm

So I have 6 PT's left to do in 8 days before the test (don't worry when I do a PT in the morning, I do indeed review it for about 4-5 hours in the afternoon). However, I have a question about scheduling my last few exams. Am I better to:

1. Take this Sunday or Monday off then do 3/4 back to back tests and then take Friday (the day before test day off)?

2. Take back to back tests up until Tuesday, take Wednesday off, then take a test Thursday and then take Friday off?

Weird question I know, but I would like to see what others recommend.

Cheers all.

Have you taken any breaks from studying yet? Personally, I find myself doing poorer when I am forcing myself to do more PTs and I am not really in the mood to do it (i.e. reading comp is one section where I usually need to feel interested and relaxed to do well, otherwise I end up getting more wrong), and as a result, next Thursday and Friday I am going to stop doing PTs. I am doing 1 a day though until then.

2 days off in a row right before the test would psych me out too much, other wise I would totally do that (I am messed like that), 1 day off right before is fine though. To answer your question, I have recently done something LSAT related probably every day for the past month (Avg 4 hours per day) and have done back to back PT's 6 days in a row so far.

Option #2, assuming you are used to taking PTs multiple days in a row. I like that it lets you practice taking a test after a day off since that's what you will be doing for the real thing.
