Cold Start Problem

Postby ccmbr006 » Sat Dec 11, 2010 8:07 pm

I encountered this issue in my PT's and my LSAT today: When I first start out on the test, it takes me a section to hit my stride.

Obviously, this sucks. Especially today, when I choked/cold started on the first section. But then I rolled fine (until LG Death).

Does anyone else experience this? Any ideas?

I had this in October. This time a woke up earlier and read a chapter of a book before taking off: it really helped me.

This is why you do a warm-up before the test. I did an RC from Superprep A that I hadn't seen before before driving to the test. I feel RC is a better warm-up than the other sections. I usually have had my highest PT scores when warming up on an RC, but I guess that's different for everyone. I think what helps anyone is doing warm-ups though.

I have the same issue. Bombed first section in addition to the last LG section.

Going to warm up with RC next time.

Before the test I did a few arguments, one RC passage, and one LG. Took me about 30-45 minutes but helped me out later one.
