Time of day question

Postby maxm2764 » Thu May 20, 2010 4:42 pm

So I posted this earlier this week but only got one response so here I go again.

Does it make any difference at what time I take my PrepTests? I know the test is at 1 but for the next couple of weeks I'll be able to take tests only in the morning or late afternoon. Does anyone see a problem with this or am I over analyzing the situation? Thanks for any suggestions you guys may have.

BETTER POSTPONE DUDE

Real answer: you are worrying too much. Most people probably can't take all their tests at the precise time of day they will be taking the real LSAT.

You should simulate the test day (do the whole routine, take the test at the right time of day, etc..) once or twice, preferably on the one or two weekends before the test. Don't worry about doing it exactly all the time, it makes no difference. You should take many whole tests, but no need to go crazy.

for some, this might fall into the category of "overworrying," but i think it's good to consider all factors

from what i've learned about circadian rhythms, for most people, 1 pm is the "slump" time where your body just gets tired. most people confuse this with some sort of post-meal fatigue, but it's your body's natural clock.

personally i take a red bull shot before prep tests, but that's more for focus than concern about being tired. something to consider--maybe take a 30 min nap around noonish before the test? studies indicate that'll sharpen your mental acuity (no more than 30 min, though).

if you don't believe me, take it from someone British:

Haha cubswin I won't lie that answer caught me really off guard. But thanks for your answer I figured I was over analyzing this but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Mr. Pablo I definitely have done that and will plan on doing it again before this bastard of a test rolls around.
