Hunger increases brain function in the short term. Skip breakfast.

Blood of a virgin increases cognitive function tenfold. It's scientific fact.

some people can feel distracted by hunger though, and increased anxiety can increase your metabolic function also in the short term so you may be more hungry than you would usually be over the course of 4-5 hours.
try it out in a timed setting, see how you feel.

I know fish oil apparently helps the brain function, but I can't help but think of snake oil.

Fish oil and snake eyes?

Don't chance it, use all four on the test.

Any thoughts as to the amount of people use adderall/ritalin during the exam who aren't prescribed?

I was actually curious myself to see how many people used nootropics on the LSAT (and, accordingly, how much overlap there is between TLS and ImmInst). I took my normal regimen: multi, gram of CDP Choline, and fish oil. Could have definitely used some tweaking. And it was way too cold to get good exercise in the morning.

I find that popping a few honeybees before testing gets me going.
