For those working full time, what is/was your study plan?

Postby ampm » Wed Aug 22, 2012 5:45 pm

I'm currently about half a year out of school and I'm planning on taking the December LSAT.

My game plan right now is to do 2-3 hrs of prep every night and spend my entire weekends doing problems until I melt.

I plan on taking 1.5 weeks of pto before my test date.

I want to hear how other folks in my predicament are prepping so I may be able to get some tips.

Thanks guys!

You'll be fine with that plan. It may even be too much.

I've found it much more difficult to grind through 3 hours of prep after work than do 5 hours on a weekend.

I am taking in October. Here was/is my "schedule:"

April-May: Logic Games, Logic Games, Logic Games. Probably ~10 hours/wk
June: Logical Reasoning 50% Logic Games 25% Reading Comp 25% ~12 hours/wk
July-September: PT and Drill ~16 hours/wk

I would designate a little more time upfront to LR and RC than I did before diving into practice tests. But in my experience, slow steady work will get you to where you want to be. Stay at it. There will be ups and downs.

Do you have a job where you can do some casual practice problems during slow periods? That helped me from not feeling stressed to cram in 3 hours after work.

If its Thursday, and you've studied 3 hours on Monday, 3 hours on Tuesday, and 3 hours on Wednesday, and you feel yourself losing concentration, just put it away and go watch Real Housewives with your friends. Don't overdo it. At least that's my experience.
