I think my pre-study prep is going to be LGs 56#3, 60#2, and the first 8 questions of PT 66 LR 2. I may end up cutting out 60#2 if I feel like it's too much pre-test work.

I'm actually going to redo those problems today, check my answers, and then not check when I redo tomorrow. Is this too much pre-test review?

I definitely don't think so.... 8 Q's of LR and one game seems good to get your mind into LSAT destroy mode.

Did LG from 65 just now, which caused me trouble in the past. Finished it with 5 minutes to spare and with a -0. Thinking this should be it, other than reviewing some LR that I've already done. Going to go for a run.

Anybody planning on working out tomorrow morning?

If you've done it before and done well, I say go for it. I've really slacked off on the gym the past few months, but I'll be back there Monday or Tuesday night.

Not really, but I am planning on walking to the testing center. Should get the blood flowing, at any rate.

I'm taking 3 scoops of Amino energy about 45 mins before the test (so I still have time to pee). And then 2 scoops of amino energy during the break. Should be good.

NOTE: Candidates should expect the test day to cover up to seven hours.

Yeah, planning on running a few laps at my gym at around 10ish and then drive to the test centre at about 11. That runner's high you feel afterwards always helps boost my concentration.

I have a feeling the college bars are going to be confused why Monday happy hour is just so popular tomorrow.

This. If anyone's taking it in VA near UVA, I'm definitely going straight to happy hour after it's done. Any TLSers are welcome to join.

Currently watching Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. I think its a solid pre-LSAT choice. I recommend it.

About to do back to back LG sections of 66 and 67. Back to back -0's would be a great way to end prep. Let's Go.

I've noticed that how well I perform is directly correlated with how well I've eaten for the past 24 hours. Burritos and pizza vs. nuts, fruits, vegetables, and yogurt is seriously the difference between a 168 and a 172 for me right now. I didn't think too much of it but yesterday I ate a burrito the night before and polished off the leftover burrito for breakfast (gross, I know), and then I literally got -6 RC, -3 -2 LR, and -3 LG. Now I'm two sections in and I'm -2 on RC and -1 on LR. I had pineapple and a salad last night, and I had more pineapple, a bagel and cream cheese, and yogurt this morning. I feel so much more lucid and quick. Yesterday I felt sluggish and unfocused, I would have to reread a section multiple times.

Better make sure to have a healthy dinner and breakfast before the test. And no popcorn or soda at the movies tonight.

P.S. Y'all were right, Man of Steel comes out next weekend. *sob*. I'm seeing Now You See Me tonight instead!

Once again, good luck to everyone!

I think I'll stay off TLS from now until the test. It usually leads me to law school numbers, threads that can be depressing, etc., which just makes me more nervous.

Good luck all!

You don't find that the amino energy lets you down hard after about two hours?

What the heck is wrong with me on RC? Did anyone else find it difficult? That last LG section about killed me but I had blazed through the first three in 20 minutes so I spent the last 15 on it.

Seriously looking for any advice on RC that I can put into practice today. I have absolutely no strategy (didn't think I needed one since I hadn't been going more than -2 and typically -1/-0).


I just took PT68 today as well (for the first time) and had similar results to yours.

RC -4
LR1 -1
LG -0
LR2 -0

Raw 96 --> Scaled 177.

Found RC a little tricky, although on one of the misses I originally had the right answer (no idea why I changed looking back) and one of the other misses was painfully obvious. Took it in a library and there was a bunch of conversation going on during RC that distracted me...but not sure how exactly that factors in. Feeling pretty good about tomorrow. Average over last five tests is ~175.5, which is right where I want to be.

Mmmk. Good luck everyone -and myself. Let's go destroy PT 69. See you all tomorrow where we can celebrate (hopefully) never having to look at this stuff again.
