When to quit studying?

Postby niederbomb » Sun Dec 05, 2010 9:42 am

At one time, I was progressing to perfect LR sections and 20+ LG sections, at least in the 40's and 50's.

In the past week, I've started making more and more careless mistakes on LG, missing inferences, bungling diagrams, and running out of time. Before this week, I almost never missed a question on LG; my only issue was time, and even that was going away.

I take the December 12 test. I don't want to be burned out, but it's hard to quit when, all the sudden, I'm back to 16 and 17-point LG sections like I was right before I bombed the October LSAT.

When should I quit studying? I'm thinking I'll ignore the burnout and push on to Thursday, do PT 61 and PT 37, and then put aside the LSAT stuff forever (hopefully).

You should already be tapering, and I would give yourself at least 3 full days off.
