Hi, I'm new to this particular post.. though I've been reading this post since I started preparing for the February test.
Anyway, here's my situation that might help you.
Until about a week ago, I've been scoring 176-179 range on PTs (mostly PT 5X). I felt like I could ace the test if I were to take the test on that week.
Then, I decided to "ease up" for the last two to three weeks. I spend most of this week relaxing and enjoying other things I put aside for LSAT.
The result... terrible.
After about 4 days of relaxing (I only did a few sections), I decided to take PT for weekends. Yesterday, I took Superprep B, and just took PT 58 today.
For both PTs, I couldn't finish some of the sections, and I completely messed up RC sections. The score? About 170 on both.
Although PT 58 and Superprep B are known for their difficulties, the biggest problem for me was that I couldn't focus at all compared to when I was scoring 176+ on PTs.
So now I'm planning to spend at least 8 out of 12 days on PTs (including Thursday and Friday before the test).
Of course, everyone is different when it comes to final preparation strategies. But you might want to make sure that relaxing will not lower your ability to focus.
