interesting anecdotal advice for others prepping.

I have pretty much no sunlight coming into my - bedroom/office/kitchen?/lsat sanctuary - because the sunlight woke me up too early in the morning so I sealed my windows with some blackening shades. I relied on a few lamps and a ceiling light that complemented each other perfectly all year but began either flickering or losing strength this past month.

I spent a few bucks getting the maximum wattage bulbs that were safe for each light source in my room and I truly feel as if I am seeing the LSAT more clearly, literally. I don't know how many people study in their rooms or have had this issue but I hope this post helps someone.

good luck my people

LOL, if you can't read the page clearly, then you probably need more light. Its common sense little breh - yes, studying in a well lit place will be better than not.

I think a better direction for this thread would be to inform people about how important it is to study in other places such as libraries, coffee shops, etc... or even the place where you'll sit for the test. I've read a lot of people who complain that they didnt do so, and it totally threw them off come game day.

Anyway, happy studying!

Yeah I will be sure to go to my library for taking PT's come August. For now though, a well lit room optimizes my efforts to build a foundation in my room for those PT's and eventually the real thing. It is common sense to a degree. However, in hindsight, I am shocked at how low my standards became for lighting my room because I was too focused on the test. Another thing with lamps and such is that your arm creates distracting shadows over the page, so you should try to obtain a wall or ceiling light source if you don't already have one.

I am a fan of making testing conditions more difficult than the real thing occasionally but I really see no point in doing so during the learning process.

1) No access to TLS
2) Tearing out individual PTs from the LSAT PT books. It actually works; less shit to carry around when I take my prep material to work
3) Decent pencil sharpener so I don't look like an idiot spending five minutes sharpening my pencil at Starbucks
4) Starbucks
5) Rapidly diminishing social life

this is one of the most credited things i've ever read on tls
