Unconventional Means of Improving LSAT?

Postby anteater1 » Mon Aug 15, 2011 11:46 pm

Back Story: Currently in a course right now and studying 30+ hours a week with the typical approach of LSAT tests, reviews, bibles and I'm also enrolled in a prep course.

Oftentimes I get burnt out after the 4-5 hour I've studied in a given day, so I was looking for any unconventional approaches to improving your LSAT score outside of the stuff I listed above.

I figured TLS is the best place to go, any help or approach is appreciated!

Way too much. You're probably just burnt out in general.

For now, take the next 3-5 days completely off from studying, and then come back and take your next PT cold.

Cut way back and allow for days completely off in your schedule. Figure out exactly what your issues are and what cause them. Find solutions that work for you.

I recommend practicing in crazy situations. Best one: logic games while skydiving. Force yourself to be able to finish a logic game before you allow yourself to open your chute. If you can do that, you'll be fine come test day.

ETA: Seriously though, listen to Incomp

3.5 GPAs from UCI gotta stick together!

Don't do any extra work on the days you have LSAT prep class. Four hours in class is plenty. Most other days you should be drilling, with maybe one practice test mixed in per week at this point.

Find some middle school kids and try and walk them through some in/out games.

unconventional as in pharmaceutical?

I kept getting tired too and considered taking some chill pills, but in the end I just had a beer before every pt and that helped (hops, which gives beer flavor, is also a herbal remedy for anxiety). When it came to game day I was pumped up with adrenaline so I didnt get tired at all.
